Can the Royal Rally Roll On?

online.wsj.com — Kansas City, Mo. The last time they'd played a noisy Game 7 here, Ronald Reagan was amid his second term. The finale had been a rout, 11-0, Royals over Cardinals. The fans behind the outfield wall here who were old enough to remember it remembered it in parts, a merry but faded memory.

LeBron James Gets It

online.wsj.com — Remember when LeBron James didn't "get it"? This was four basketball seasons ago. It's exhausting just to remember. Here was the alleged scandal: James, then 25 years old, left his home state of Ohio for South Florida, seeking job satisfaction, the company of friends and, perhaps, warmer weather.

The Sorta Halfway Point of a Kinda Crazy NFL Year

online.wsj.com — Here we are at the halfway point of the NFL regular season-is it really halfway, it seems quick-and there is a feast of surprises and not-so-surprises. The Arizona Cardinals stopped the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday to soar to 6-1. The Detroit Lions are 6-2. Denver is intense and rolling. Seattle's wobbly.

Giants vs. Royals: World Series Game 2 Live Blog

blogs.wsj.com — Game 1 of the World Series wasn't pretty for the Royals. James Shields gave up three runs in the first, and that was all Madison Bumgarner needed en route to a 7-1 victory at Kauffman Stadium.

Those Kooky Kansas City Cats

online.wsj.com — Kansas City, Mo. As soon as I got to Kansas City, I wanted to meet the two guys in the catsuits. I thought the two guys in the catsuits were a symbol of something big, something important and stirring about the World Series fever in this once-forgotten, now feverish baseball town.

The Kansas City Royals Want to Rule the World

online.wsj.com — The Kansas City Royals open the World Series at home on Tuesday. That sentence is as surreal to type as it is to read. By now you surely know that, until this past month, Kansas City had been absent from baseball's afterparty since 1985, a time when America was thunderstruck by the magic of microwave popcorn, watched broadcast TV at the appointed hour, and actually listened to their voice messages.

Peyton Returns, With a Quieter Victory

online.wsj.com — East Rutherford, N.J. The last time Peyton Manning played football here, it had gone...well, it had not gone terribly well. Super Bowl XLVIII. Roger Goodell's not-so-freezy New York/New Jersey Freezy Bowl. Seattle pounced early-was there really a safety on the first play from scrimmage?-and Manning didn't resemble himself as the Denver Broncos were ground into a fine orange dust, 43-8.

Jason Gay: Maybe a Nice Trip to Iceland Would Fix the Jets

online.wsj.com — They should dress up for no reason. They should cut back on caffeine. They should take more naps. They should learn a new language. They should visit Iceland. They should learn to appreciate green peppers. Next summer they should rent that house on the shore. Not that house, the other house.

Cole Custer: The Kid Behind the Wheel

Baseball Makes Its Dramatic Case

online.wsj.com — Baseball spends a lot of time defending itself. Long ago dethroned by football as America's sporting pastime, the summer game is constantly derided as too time-consuming (games averaged three hours, eight minutes this season, almost the length of "The Godfather Part II") and too ponderous for smart-phoned, Twitter-birdie attention spans and...wait...sorry, I was checking Twitter.
