Kansas City Royals outfielder Jonny Gomes gave one hell of a victory speech during Tuesday’s celebration for beating the New York Mets four games to one in the World Series.
Gomes grabbed an American flag before asking for a moment of silence for several teammates who lost parents in the months leading up to the World Series – including Edison Volquez, who’s father died the day he started Game 1 of the Series. Then Gomes launched into his epic speech.
“It’s unbelievable what those boys did. It’s unbelievable what they did!
“They stole bases, they hit homers. Hey guess what, Cy Young winner, not on our team, beat him. Rookie of the year, not on our team, we beat him. MVP of the whole league, (turns around) sorry, guys, not on our team. But we beat that guy, too! You know why we beat them. Because all of you all people had our backs.
“And Dayton Moore put this team together and Yost delivered it by being the captain of the ship. You all want to be politically correct, I’m the un-politically correct person. We whooped their ass!”
And then he tossed the microphone before being mobbed by his teammates.
