Royals fans turn Kansas City blue
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City is turning blue as Royals fans line up to watch the World Series championship team parade.
Forty-eight-year-old Kansas City native Steve Spencer marveled at the crowd as he joined the masses walking toward the city's Union Station. Recalling the years of losing seasons, he says the "crazy" turnout is beyond anything he has ever seen.
Highways leading into the city are packed and city streets are jammed.
Thirty-four-year-old Chris Lasister, of Lenexa, Kansas, brought his 2-year-old son with him to watch the festivities. He says he doesn't remember the parade when the Royals last won the World Series in 1985, so he can't miss this one.
