KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Talk about painting the town blue, one local woman is taking her love for the Royals to a whole new level.

"I think it's a pretty color!" said 74-year-old Linda Jordan, who decided she wanted to paint her house Royal Blue, "If I were in the market for a new car, I'd buy a car this color."

"Because I like the Royals!" added Jordan, "And my house needed to be painted."

Jordan grew up in Kansas City and around baseball.

"I have a bottle of Coke from the '85 Royals World Series," Jordan said. "My brother was at the game!"

She moved away for a few years, but eventually moved back, and said she was ecstatic when the Royals made it to the World Series for the first time in almost 30 years last year.

"I just couldn't believe it, and I didn't miss a minute of any of it!" Jordan added. "Even when they were up until the wee hours of the morning... and I go to bed early."

So this year, when the Royals made the playoffs she wanted to show her excitement by painting her home.

"Said she wanted it Royal Blue, bright red front door, white trim," says her painter, James turner, who says he hasn't had a request like this before.

"First royal blue!" Turner said.

It's even been a hit with her neighbors.

"The first night he saw it, he passed by and he said, 'go Royals!'" said Jordan about one of her neighbors.

"I figure if Linda can live next to us with all our crazy Halloween and Christmas decorations and lights, we can live next to a bright blue house," said another one of Linda's neighbors, Michelle Chapman.

Jordan says she supports all of Kansas City's sports teams.

"The front door is going to be Chiefs red," saidJordan.

No matter what.

"I'm a loyal Royals fan even if they don`t win," added Jordan, who says she's going to keep this paint color whether the Royals win or lose.
