Re: Kansas, Missouri battle over companies

MMGY Global is moving from their building across from the Bernstein Rein building and out to the Edison District in downtown OP. I worked there when they moved into that building from the Mark Twain building. Never loved the Plaza space - it wasn't all that nice. That spot wasn't exactly great for c...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Been following BritChief on Twitter for a while. He is a hoot.

There's also a "Baseball Brit" on Twitter who is a huge Royals/KC fan. He toured the US all year watching major and minor league ball. Well worth the follow.

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, 17.5% of tickets? That is a joke. The tickets on the re-sell market are obscene, just getting in the door is around 4k-5k, plus another 1k in fees to the third parties. Literally out of reach of most of Kansas City and even dedicated season ticket holders mostly don't get to go. Furtherm...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I definitely agree with regards to the second part - playing every day in the MLB playoffs creates an energy/momentum in the city that is unparalleled. The Gomes example is interesting - because I don't think anyone really thought of him as a local star until the parade. Maybe I'm misremembering. I ...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

The Bond Bridge only cost $25M? Really? I thought the bridge itself was closer to $75M and the entire project (all of the interchanges up north to the 35/29 split was something like $250M. Maybe I'm completely misremembering. But $25M sounds awfully affordable.

Should we tear the Plaza down and just start over?
Maybe ditch the Spanish motif and go with something Harry Potter themed?
Only if it has a castle with a dragon on it
I think it's safe to say we'd be the first metro to replace a Capital Grille with a Medieval Times.

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like it. A longer route in terrible weather could be problematic for parade participants, but it sure would probably be easier for attendees to actually see something. And, on the off chance the weather is good, a TON of people will show up for it. Now go outside, turn around three times and spit....

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Houston didn't attempt the fake punt that turned into Chiefs' first touchdown they probably would've controlled rest of game. Odd call. It's a debatable call, but they're giving us the ball back either way. Yeah, the short field helped, but it's not like their defense was really shutting us down...

Re: Brookside

IMO, it's harder driving south on Brookside Rd and then trying to turn left onto Gregory - the light on Wornall makes it difficult. The left onto Meyer isn't all that bad IMO.

I hate that the north loop location is still getting brought up Probably because of Commerce Bank's influence on the Downtown Council, who's leading the discussion to keep it out of city hall. @lastgent I don’t think the public will get much say on location or design if they are to achieve their go...

Hadn't really heard too much about a SW Boulevard site - although I'm sure it was referenced somewhere in the past 550 pages. Interesting idea. Would love for something to be done with that area. There was a ballpark at SW Boulevard/Summit back in the late 19th century. I'm sure that fact will comfo...
