Re: “Louis C.K. calls Kansas City 'a terrible place' on The Tonight Show (video)

I can just see CK stoned out of his gourd, sitting at the Go CHicken Go window on Troost, flopping around in his car like a 'tard...

Not that I have any perosnal experience with that.

Well, not much, at any rate.

Re: “You get to open your own restaurant -- what are you serving?

I've always wanted to open an opium themed cafe; late late late night hours, indifferent menu, but quality service with a soft touch and cool cloth across one's brow...

Re: “The Kansas City Royals are for sale? Jack Harry's latest bit of rumormongering (poll)

Dear Anony...you don't mind if I call you Anony, yes?

What you take a priori has no basis in fact, or at least none that is documented - while David Glass may turn a profit, it is certain that between emptying Jacason County taxes payers' pockets toward the stadium's manintenance and the hand-shake millions the City kicks in every year, any "profit" that results from the Royals' domicile is probably, at best, a wash, and if not, so what? Is that money returned to Jackson COunty residents in any tangible way: repaired pot holes, new sidewalks,lowered utility rates or even pleasant demeanors from City workers who laugh at our phone calls for service? I think not.

"...if they left the KC sports market would be underserved."

Certainly up for debate, but let's posit you're correct.

So what? As far as I can tell the City is also underserved in traveling plays at Starlight that are less than 2 years old, yet no one has died. My guts tell me (learned this one from Shrub)that the average 16 thousand or so fans who attend home games will survive. Or at least whine as quietly as every other self regarding special interets in town, which, if you're unawares, has settled into a drone that even the summer's cicadas have no problem overriding in their heat.

"KC really is a baseball town..."

I admire faith and loyalty, especially in things that don't exist. I don't understand it, but I do admire it. You keep on truckin', Anony. Hold up that flag for just a few seconds more until the legions of your fellow true believers come to assist you...

"...the ownership of the royals is so incompetent that they haven't been able to turn out a winning team for a whole generation of fans."

You are nearly right: it has been just shy of TWO generations of fans who have subjected themselves to a rather unrewarding form of masochism, Thor knows why. There are more immediate, much more pleasurable and...satisfying...forms of pain and humiliation available locally - just talk to May @ May's Machete...

Nope - there is no good, objective reason for the Royals to stay put or for Jackson County and Kansas City residents to continue to subsidize them.

You forgot a 3rd choice for your poll:

Hell yes! A new owner would move the team which would be better for Kansas City.

Re: “Big 12 football media poll picks Missouri, Kansas State and Kansas to finish behind Nebraska

I'm not saying anything is amiss with Coach Hawkins system, however I doubt the Golden Buffs will be motivated enought to come in 6th.

Or even 7th.

And, yes, I know there's only 6 schools in the North.

Re: “Taking food way too seriously

Yes, it is an obsessive-compulsive thing and the lass should seek help.

...unless, of course, her illnes brings her wealth and fame.

Re: “Deer hunts coming to Kansas City parks -- including Swope Park -- this fall

Hmmmm.

Starting late July, that's about 7 less times I'll play this year at Swope Memorial.

I mean, it's bad enough that to get hit with stray tee shots, but .306 rounds are totally unacceptable...
