World Series Superfans Get Tickets from Ellen!


– IT HAS BEEN 29 YEARS SINCE THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS
HAVE BEEN TO A WORLD SERIES. SO THERE’S A LOT OF FANS
THAT WANT TO SEE THEM WIN, AND WE RECEIVED A LETTER
FROM A VIEWER WHO THINKS THAT HER MOM AND AUNT
DESERVE TO GO. HERE’S THE LETTER
RIGHT HERE. “DEAR ELLEN, IF ANYBODY DESERVES
TO GO TO THE WORLD SERIES “AND WATCH THE ROYALS PLAY, “IT’S MY MOM CARLA
AND HER IDENTICAL TWIN MARLA. “THEY KNOW ALL OF THE PLAYERS
AND NEVER MISS A GAME. “MY MOTHER CARLA IS AN AMAZING,
HARDWORKING PERSON. “SHE’S GOT SIX KIDS. “TOOK ANY JOB SHE COULD
TO SUPPORT US. “WHEN MY BROTHER
WAS JUST A BABY, “SHE WENT BACK TO SCHOOL
TO BE A NURSE. “I DON’T KNOW
HOW SHE DID IT, “BUT SHE PUSHED THROUGH
AND NEVER GAVE UP. “HER AND MY AUNT MARLA
WOULD DIE “IF THEY GOT TO GO
TO THE WORLD SERIES. “PLEASE PICK CARLA AND MARLA
TO GO CHEER FOR THE ROYALS. SINCERELY, MAGGIE.” SO WHAT
SHE DOESN’T KNOW IS, JEANNIE AND OUR CREW
ARE OUTSIDE OF MAGGIE’S HOUSE IN KEARNEY, MISSOURI,
RIGHT NOW. [cheers and applause] HI. IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL THERE.
– HI. – HI, HI. – OH, MY GOSH,

AND MARLA HAVE NO IDEA
I’M ABOUT TO SURPRISE THEM. I’M GONNA GIVE MAGGIE A CALL
RIGHT NOW, AND THEY THINK SOMETHING ELSE
