THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! ALL-STAR GAME HYPE CAN'T CHANGE KANSAS CITY'S RECORD OF FAIL!!!
It's important for Kansas City to reject every mainstream media myth regarding the upcoming MLB All-Star game if only because the illusion that everything is great in Kansas City is dangerous.
It bears repeating that the "economic impact" constantly touted is nothing more than marketing hype bought and paid for by Major League Baseball and most "benefit" to this town will be siphoned off by silly politicos pushing their way toward the spotlight.
Even worse . . . Kansas City's baseball team is pretty much minor league endeavor and part of the great disparity in pro-sports that makes most of the games non-competitive.
Finally, this All Star Game exercise in PR allows local politicos to pretend that they have accomplished something more than just spending a ton of taxpayer cash on big party that has little longstanding benefit.
Get it straight, this old and busted town has a lot of problems that need to be addressed this Summer but Kansas City's political class would rather celebrate a baseball game than work on more urgent priorities.
And all of this along with Sara Jean Underwood has inspired tonight's Youtube playlist.
As always, thank you for reading this week and have a fun and safe weekend.
