Love Fraud is streaming on Showtime. Much of it takes place in KC and there are lots of shots of the subject's haunts, including Centropolis (where he rented a few apartments for short-term corporate housing), the River Market and random other b-roll stuff.

I met "Mickey" in the parking garage of Centropolis a while back and then he tried to rent a townhouse I was managing. He showed up to look at it with his fiancé, Tracy. I knew something was off about him – I try very hard not to be prejudiced but the Hummer, bedazzled jeans, twitching eye and stuttering at difficult questions were red flags. My first impressions are usually correct, but not always. A couple days later, Tracy called me to tell me she found out he is not who he says he is and sent me to his victims' blog http://scottthecrooksmith.weebly.com/. She's featured in the 4 episode series, along with her smart daughter.

I'm not a big fan of the genre but this series is very well done and the last episode is a doozy. The co-directors have done other excellent movies, mostly docs, including Jesus Camp and Detropia. They are very talented. I recommend it.

So did they really put a rock climbing wall on top of that building when they did that ad? I'm not in town so I don't know. Also, and this is just me being picky, but when the guy goes into the building, it says Town Pavilion on the door but when he's on the roof of the building, it's Lightwell/City Center Square.

Cool perspective here and makes me want to recreate it with my drone, but restrictions are in place being so close to the Downtown Airport. The image is a few years old. You can notice the green from when McGownGordon's office was under construction on Main.

That’s a cool commercial, that would be so cool if they had a permanent climbing wall on a roof like that

Yes, they really put one up there.

Not sure how this came up in my youtube feed but Charles Miller from War is apparently from Olathe originally as stated in a recently posted Low Rider remaster.

Sitting here in Tucson watching FCKC women soccer. Didn't even know there was such a team. Must be to much "cordish Light" in everyone's eyes to mention it?
They just mentioned that kansas city and Portland shared BBQ. Makes me want a pound of pulled pork and brisket from AB's

Team is new this year. Co-owned by Brittany Mahomes. Have they won a single game this year?

Don't think they have won a game yet. Where do they play? Same as Sporting KC over in kansas? Wish them all the Luck this year but must be hard for a new team.
If you're not on the EDGE, you're taking up TOO MUCH ROOM!

They play at Community America Ballpark next door to where Sporting plays in KCK.

I think i posted about the ownership group overall previously. They have big plans for their own soccer specific stadium. Seems like a good group overall if a bit ambitious. Mahomes’ wife is part of the ownership group.

Their vision is enormous: They’ll begin at T-Bones Stadium but then build the country’s first soccer-specific stadium for a women’s team, with around 10,000-seat capacity regularly sold out for families, young professionals and fans around the Midwest to watch the world’s best players.
What was their average attendance the first time they were here? MLS isn’t a profit making endeveour so any women’s stadium will require even higher levels of incentives. Sporting KC is one of few profitable teams with $1 million income. Probably would be a loss if not for Cerner events at their stadium.

Saw on the tele tonight that the doctor believed to have masterminded the Haiti assassination attended college in KC.
