29 Things I Have the Confidence to do Now That the Royals are in the Playoffs

If you don’t know that the Royals have been amazing this year, you’ve apparently spent the summer under an air-conditioned rock. Watching them make the playoffs after 29 years of denial and heartache is inspiring to try some new things ourselves. Here’s the list of new things we came up with while waiting at Oklahoma Joe’s for obligatory pre-game BBQ – tell us what you’re feeling confident about in the comments!

3) Buy that $20 scratcher ticket

4) Not tie my shoelaces

5) “Wink,” “Poke” or whatever they call it on Tinder, eHarmony, (or any dating service) that person I’ve been crushing on

6) Try Lays Cappuccino flavor potato chips

7) Sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at a karaoke bar (because now I actually want to go)
