I always liked the way Al Michaels could set the scene for the World Series back when he did baseball. The last time the Royals were in a Game 6, they also trailed 3-2, this time to the St. Louis Cardinals, but the Royals had just won Game 5.

That Game 6 ended in a dramatic bottom of the ninth (turn down your speakers a little bit):

So there's your narrative for a Kansas City walkoff win. Otherwise, #EvenYear.
