Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I get the argument, I guess I just don't understand why its even being discussed.  It was discussed a decade ago, we didn't switch, so lets just play better in the AL.  It'd be nice to have a winning team, but I think I'd rather do it the old fashioned way than switch leagues to "fit our style of pl...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Am I the only one that thinks its crap to move to another league to win?  How about the royals just play better in the AL?  Believe it or not, it can be done.

Royals are now 36 - 43.

At this time last year we were 31 - 46.

The worst that will happen is we'll be tied going into Friday's series.  I'm pretty stoked, never thought I'd say it, but GO GIANTS!  Wow, its fun being a fan of a winning (recently) team!

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate to jinx anything, but the Indians are currently down 3 in the bottom of the 8th.  I won't say anything about the Royals until the game is over!

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, they'll trade CC at the deadline.   Yes, they'll likely finish 4th or maybe even last in the division.    But they don't stink.  And they have some really nice pieces going into next year, if they get healthy. Can't you just agree that the Royals are about the same?  Sure, Indians have proven ...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11-4 in their last 15, 8-2 in their last 10, 4-1 in their last 5. I can live with this. Now just make a run at being competitive and I'll be happy....for now. Yes, the NL record is impressive, but we aren't playing the best teams right now. But, they are the Royals, they aren't supposed to beat any...

Greinke may have not been as sharp as usual but still managed 10 k's and no walks.  I'd say that says something about what we've got!

Re: KC in TV and Movies

Yeah, Garmin has been running a full page print ad in lots of national magazines lately that has a picture of some dude standing in front of the USBank building on Barney Allis Plaza.  I was reading The Economist last week and did a double take.  What surprised me most is that these weren't even al...

Re: Tornado destroys parts of Manhattan and K-State campus

A friend and I went out after the tornado last night to see all the damage and it was like being in scenes straight from a movie.  There were probably 300 people walking around campus and cars lined up down the streets.  Definitely one of the craziest things I've been around for in my lifetime.  Cam...

Re: KC in TV and Movies

This doesn't have to do with KC in TV or Movies, but I thought it was pretty random so I'll share.  I was just flipping through the new "Outside" magazine, and there was a section reviewing GPS systems.  Almost all of the systems had kansas city streets on the screens.  Just a random observation.

Re: Effect of P&L District on The Plaza

Maybe I'm just an optimist, but with a city the size of KC, I like to think two or three major nightlife/retail areas in the core can all be successful.  It'll just take a little time for each to find a niche of their own.

Not that power rankings mean a thing in May, but ESPN just put out the May 2008 Edition of the NFL Power Rankings.  They put KC at 30....just ahead of the Dolphins and the Falcons.  According to ESPN, we've got an exciting year to look forward to!!  &

I'm sorry, but the argument that Wefald is being pushed out is more than laughable.  He has been here for 22 years and after next year will retire.  K-State is an academic establishment first and foremost, you couldn't possibly think sports would be the reason a university would push out such a succ...

Re: KC Penguins? (Kansas City Star)

Yes everyone loves a winner.  But bringing up 1979 attendnace to a potential Arena tenant, will probably elicit laughs. Sure, the Royals have the 28th worst attendance record, but like Grid said, its hard to maintain strong support for a poor product.  Also, in 2003, they jumped up to 22nd in atten...
