KANSAS CITY WITNESSES THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR THE SPRINT CENTER!!!
It's important to makes the connection when it comes to recent Kansas City biz news regarding the Sprint Center.
Anschutz Entertainment Group, which runs Kansas City's Sprint Center arena, is going up for sale.
AEG, company that manages KC's Sprint Center, for sale
Sprint Center operator, AEG, up for sale
Now here's what is more important . . .
THE AEG SALE TRANSLATES INTO UPCOMING HARSH TIMES FOR THE SPRINT CENTER NOW THAT THEIR CONNECTION TO BIG TIME EVENTS AND SPORTS TEAMS IS SOON TO BE KAPUT!!!
Biz speak and reassurances regarding new owners is nothing more than marketing hype geared toward the naive and crooked real estate developers. The fact is that Kansas City's Downtown Arena is getting old, has never lived up to promises and is now less of a priority for a struggling operation.
Even better, I'm guessing that I'll get even less pushback in the comments because Sprint Center d-bags should be busy polishing up their résumés.
And so . . . While Kansas City is busy putting low-income home owners in jail, we can look forward to a bit more blight within the loop as the "Downtown Kansas City Renaissance" has failed to materialize and remains nothing more than than one of many expensive fantasies sold to voters.
