Jason Whitlock, the bridge-burning sports columnist who left The Kansas City Star last year, broke off a call to 610 Sports host Nick Wright on Monday. "Literally, I'm so bored," Whitlock said at the outset of the conversation, a bad omen.
Whitlock and Wright are talented guys. They're also careerists. So the discussion, which resumed on Wright's show on Tuesday, was more about Whitlock, Wright and their frenemy status than about the Chiefs or the Royals.
