Way to go KC. Are you from Kansaas City?
Did he have that kick ass honeymoon yet?
I can't wait for The Bulls to beat down The Magic this year,
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
I'm actually from a small town in between Des Moines and Iowa City. I moved down to KC about a year ago.
Got back about a week and a half ago. It was incredible Highly recommend Montego Bay. It's awesome.
Also, I have no doubt the Bulls will destroy my Magic this year. We are going to suck. They have no go to scorer this year. We will suck very, very badly.
Hey Todd do you have a thing that emails you when people hit milestone post counts? Just wondering how you keep track of everybody.
I used to live in a smaller town about 60 miles from KC (Marshall, Mo) and had a number of friends in college who were from the KC area, Raytown, Lenexa, Ka, and others. Most were football players but we had some pretty good times. I always like KC.Long time Chiefs fan from the 1st Super Bowl era on.

I don't know where Marshall is, but i work over in Lenexa and my wife teaches in Shawnee. We live in Belton MO.
Marshall is 10 miles north of I - 70 on Hwy 65. Or, 25 miles north of Sedalia. Mo. Got an old Navy buddy who I maintain contact with that lives in Lenexa.
No, that would make it much easier! I try to pay attention to peoples' post counts, but there are times I don't notice when someone reaches a milestone, particularly if most of their posts are on the OT board.
Kansas City is a cool place. Definitely think it's very underrated as a city, as most people who haven't been there don't know much about it.
Definitely agree. There is tons to do in Kansas City. It is very underrated. I'm a little surprised they don't have a basketball franchise though. I really enjoy the city. Traffic can be a nightmare at times though.
They did have an NBA franchise back in the day, right? Just speculating, but maybe the league thinks KU is too big, so the NBA team would play second fiddle? No idea.
A long time ago they had a franchise. I'm going to my first KU game tonight. It is an exhibition so we'll see how dedicated the fans are.
How was the game? I've heard it gets pretty crazy at Allen Fieldhouse, especially for home games.
It was fun. Just an exhibition, but there were about 15000 fans there. Students were pretty crazy. My friend said it gets 10x louder for a big game. Those tickets get pretty crazy though. I probably won't make one of those. haha.Lawrence is a solid town. I like Iowa City personally. Lawrence is pretty rough and kind of spread out as far as social places go. Had some good food though at Quinton's and a few beers before the game.
If you have a chance to go to a game there though. I'd say do it. really cool museum of basketball there too.
Can't remember their team name, but I do remember their center, Sam Lacey. Back in the days of Lanier, McAdoo, Aguire, etc. I don't think they ever drew well and some how I have this vague memory that they went out west and became the Golden State Warriers or something like that.
I did used to watch them when I lived in Missouri in the late 70's.
Thinking about it a little more, I believe they became the Sacramento Kings when they moved out west. Then again, maybe not!

Glad you had a good time - thanks for the info! That's definitely one place I'd love to see a game at sometime.
Off the top of my head, I think they were in Cincinnati at one point, and later moved to Sacramento, like you said. I don't know enough about Kansas City to say either way, but I wonder whether the population has increased enough for an NBA team to make it there now.
Kansas City Kings, now Sacramento were the Franchise in KC. They have had a few ABA franchises as well and have been discussed recently for expansion/relocation of an NHL and NBA team.
Weren't they in Cincinnati before KC? Or am I confusing them with another franchise?
And I didn't realize KC had recently been discussed as a possible destination for an NBA team. Would they play at the Sprint Center, or build a new arena?
The Sprint Center would be the location for an NHL or NBA team. David Stern has said that it was the perfect venue for an NBA Franchise. Right downtown. Lots of restaurants and hotels in the area. Plus, it is a really nice venue. I've been to several concerts there. Plus, it is host the Big 12 tourney so they know how to prepare for basketball.
Haven't been inside, but I've driven by, and that's a great location. It'll be interesting to see if the league looks to expand, or if one of the current franchises decides to move. I do think KC could be a nice landing spot.
