This championship reminds me of the last time they won and I'll have to admit I was crying like a baby walking down memory lane last night. I remember staying up late to watch the game with my family and after they won, my dad took his rifle to the backyard and started shooting in the air. My my started yelling "people don't celebrate like that here! You're not in Colombia! They're going to call the police!!!" But all I could see was happiness! 😊 I'm sure many heartfelt memories were stirred up last night after the victory. Congratulations KC! #ForeverRoyal
