Chiefs landed back in KC to find out the Royals won the World Series

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Royals are World Series champions. It's a sentence I can't believe I just typed. And it's true!

The Chiefs were flying back from London last night -- it's a nine-hour flight -- when the Royals officially took the crown so they didn't hear the championship news until they landed back in Kansas City. Too bad they couldn't be watching it live but I guess you don't make the NFL schedule with the Royals title hopes in mind.

It's an incredible accomplishment for the Royals. I live in a championship city. It's surreal. Here's to the Chiefs getting their shot at a title.

Chiefs players, and BJ Kissel, reacted to the championship news early this morning when they landed.
