One Kansas City Royals fan caught the Internet's attention last week as she watched her team take on the Oakland A's in the American League Wild Card game at Kauffman Stadium. Television cameras showed Katie Castan in the stands holding up this sign:

The Royals went on to win the game in comeback fashion. So the question became: is Katie getting her puppy?

A week later, her boyfriend fulfilled what the sign promised. Katie and her boyfriend Joe Onofrio adopted a 4-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi and named her Lucy, the Kansas City Star reported on Tuesday. According to the couple, they also appropriately favored the name Rally.
