I'm good, actually. And I still stand by my original statement which is completely reasonable and had been said by many others.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I don't get it. Not everybody that's been here awhile has that opinion. Honestly most don't. I'm about to quit Rag anyway. I can't say anything without people trying to take it personal or just attack me for being "a kid", or just being an asshole because they're miserable. I'm just tired...

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! THE BIG 12 IS DEAD! MAYBE!

look at the teams ranked they've all beaten a team or team(s) with winning records. KU hasn't. Uhhh...record doesn't matter that much after Week 3 lol. Beating Power-5 teams has & always will hold more weight than beating 2-0 Western Michigan. Just go take a few minutes and look through the sch...

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! THE BIG 12 IS DEAD! MAYBE!

No they don't they haven't even beaten anyone with a winning record yet. If you look at every other schedule most teams are playing FCS teams and dogshit. KU has won two road games against quality power-5 teams. Yeah, they deserve it but they won't yet because they're too new to this. When they bea...

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! THE BIG 12 IS DEAD! MAYBE!

Told yall last year Leipold was a good hire They deserve to be ranked but not enough teams lost this week so I think they'll be shut out for one more week. I think if they beat Duke, which they probably will, they'll be ranked. They're good enough to probably start 6-0. No they don't they haven't e...

Re: 12th and Broadway site: RFP for mixed use

Why would that be? It’s a couple inches of dirt and grass at the least and add the weight of tree planters and path stone at the worst? Surely the roof would hold that as is or we could put stronger cabling instead of columned support. People are heavy, rain is heavy, and would be retained in soil....

Can’t help but thinking if Waddell Reed had stayed to occupy this building that BCBS would’ve had Strata or TMobile site tower built for their new office. More likely they would have built a new structure on the land they recently purchased from Union Station (the East Yards site) next to their exi...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Past work on the K was about adding features and dressing up the look. Basically lipstick on a pig + new bells and whistles. The Royals don't exactly have a stadium problem, they have a stadium location problem. But if Chiefs are going on ballot with Royals in spring, wouldn't that mean they also a...

Re: Office project at 27th & Main

BizJournal says.. Pending the city’s nod on final design, Fidelity Security Life Insurance Co. could break ground in October on an 11-story tower near Crown Center, about one-third of which will be rented out. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2021/12/30/year-in-preview-office-market-suar...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Sources indicate the Royals and Chiefs are working on joint ballot language, and plan to put proposals before voters next Spring. Without more detail it could be for rehabbing both stadiums at TSC. BTW which voters? County? City? Both? Anyway, are the Chiefs going to have their stadium study finish...
