Politicking For Kansas City Super Bowl

Missouri Sen. Paul LeVota earns a well-deserved bit of publicity for figuring out that waiting for Kansas City's football team to visit the big game on its own merits would be futile: Task force to bring Super Bowl to Kansas City to begin work

The two busiest times our airport will ever see will be the four hours before the game and the three hours after. I've lived in a cold weather city that hosted a Super bowl. They filled the seats but not the hotels and restaurants.

Truth. All this energy for a game that locals won't get tickets to and won't benefit the economy.
Our local leadership is stuck in some kind of antiquated notion of what makes a city great.

Looks like some local PR firms need new business now that the Republican convention scam has run its course.

The Super Bowl would be a major moneymaker for the LeVota owned fantasy sex club.

Don't want it don't need it. Any politician that pushes for this won't have my vote. Do they read this?

And who is it assuming that we even want a Super Bowl in KC? Are they mad because taxes just aren't enough? Let them have a bake sale. That would give the local yokel politicians something to do rather than spending time figuring out how to spend more tax dollars.

Yeah! Make it sound like the tax payers didn't get bent over on the remodel. Gotta love the sports authority and cronies.
