The World Series kicks off tonight from Kansas City with the Royals taking on the Giants in the 2014 Fall Classic. Will the Giants' even-year magic pull through for them again, or will the Cinderella story Royals (who haven't lost so far this postseason) keep rolling straight through to the end? Which team are you rooting for and why?

You can catch the game starting at 8:00 pm on FOX.
