You could call it a city divided - the Chiefs' kick off goes down shortly after the Royals' first pitch. While team colors are typically worn separately, Rally House expects to see a new trend tonight - a sea of red and blue.

"I think wearing that postseason hat around loud and proud is probably the best way to go, and throwing your favorite jersey or your favorite tee so you can still bleed your red," said Chelsea Pletke, a manager at Rally House.

Across town at the Blind Tiger on Main Street, it's a similar story. And that has bartenders seeing red and blue. The bar will air both the Chiefs and the Royals games, while simultaneously serving up shots sporting the colors of each team.

"We sell a lot of blue," said Candice Moore, the manager of Blind Tiger. "For some reason, people like blue. Pretty sure we will do more Royals shots than Chiefs shots, but hopefully we will do both."

Because whether red, blue or a little of both, businesses getting in on the Chiefs and Royals fever have one thing in common - they're all seeing a lot of green.
