What a night.
They were watching at Sporting Park as the Royals recorded the final outs.
Holland still had to close things out though.

LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN!
A little champagne for you, some for you, and some for you too. http://t.co/ScfZSOU4hs— MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) September 27, 2014
Billy just douched Yost with champagne. Hilarious. He's been waiting for that for months. #Royals— Carson (@JCarsonC) September 27, 2014
The skipper never escapes the champagne – especially after a 29-year drought. http://t.co/caFYxI0cta— MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) September 27, 2014
Lorenzo Cain can't do this interview now, he needs a hug. http://t.co/K8bAe16M7A— MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) September 27, 2014
Billy Butler thanked Royals fans.
Congrats to the @Royals on making it to the playoffs. I'm happy for the organization and the fans.— Jermaine dye (@JermaineDye) September 27, 2014
Comedian Jay Mohr was apparently a fan of the James Shields trade.
U said I was nuts when I said KC got better end of Shields-Myers trade. WM will play much longer but tonight Royals in playoffs that = $$$— Jay Mohr (@jaymohr37) September 27, 2014
George Brett was in a celebratory, yet profane mood.
George Brett is ready to go. "If these guys only knew what this means to this city," he said. "Shit, it means the world to me."— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) September 26, 2014
George Brett: "These guys played their effing asses off." He did not say "effing."— Sam Mellinger (@mellinger) September 27, 2014
So glad Derek Jeter got to see the Royals in the playoffs before he died.— Almighty Ruler (@jfishSOTW) September 27, 2014
Aw, class act by Bruce.
Lots of allusions to 1985.
Are the Tigers better off as a wild card team or winning the division, is a real thing Harold Reynolds just said.— Mike Petriello (@mike_petriello) September 27, 2014
David Glass exists and was present for festivities.
I asked David Glass for comment. He said sincerely, "I would, but tonight's about the players. They did it." #Royals— Josh Vernier (@JoshVernier610) September 27, 2014
Already for sale!
As plumes of cigar smoke filled the room, James Shields' voice cut through the noise: "We. Are. Not. Done."— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) September 27, 2014
I'm not sure I can sleep tonight.
I'm gonna wake up in the morning and realize this could all be over by Tuesday, but for now, I'm going to bed with a smile on my face.— Hunter Samuels (@HunterSamuels) September 27, 2014
Yep. Enjoy it Kansas City Royals fans. You deserve it.
