Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

I recently heard something along the lines of "economic impact on host cities is in the billions". Is this true? Probably for all host cities in aggregate. Certainly not for a single host city. It isn't a local team (unless the USA draws your city), so you could potentially have 40 to 60k...

Not for long! Bye Kansas!


Iowa State, surprisingly, always seems to be the team that really packs them in.

Re: Clay Chastain coming back with light rail

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

I took the Mavericks statement as meaning they would not be the AHL team. Not that there wouldn't be an AHL team, it would just be a different team than the Mavericks.

Re: India hits KC

I go to school at UCM in Warrensburg and campus is full of foreign born Indian students. Don't know why, but there's seemed to be a real boom the last few years.
