Wow. Lots of fans. Was it an election day there today too? If only that many would caucus and vote, think of the power.
 
Oh yeah....half a million people in one place - no riots.  no looting.  no altercations with police.  It CAN be done. 
 
Congratulations to the Royals for winning the World Series and hat tip to the Mets for an outstanding season.
 
Congrats to the Royals on their well-deserved championship!

In 2006, the Simpsons poked fun at the Royals when they visited a nearly-empty Crown Books-style store at the rundown mall and this fictional book about the 1985 victory was prominently featured:

Local TV station says there may have been 800,000 people partying like it was 1985:

Looks like a fun party.
