PUCK IT: KANSAS CITY PRO HOCKEY SPRINT CENTER DREAM KILLED ONCE AGAIN!!!



Like a bad horror flick, Kansas City's dream/promise of an NHL team for the (rapidly aging) Sprint Center is once again dying a horrible death.

To wit . . .

THE LATEST ROUND OF NHL EXPANSION TALK DOESN'T EVEN BOTHER TO MENTION KANSAS CITY!!!

Check the links:

Next round of NHL expansion will not include Kansas City, as four other cities take the lead for 2017

"Who is going to own this Kansas City expansion team? (crickets) Thought so. No owner. No team."

Amid reports of adding teams, NHL remains status quo on expansion

And so the basis of a $300 Million promise is not longer mentioned as the area gets older like some kind aging starlet and the script on more tax increases on all manner of tin cup urbanism projects is recycling time and again with varying degrees of success.

Developing . . .

I thought whats-her-face, the ex-mayor, was going to get us an NBA team once we built her shrine? Damn the dumb fucks in this town are fast to take the hook, line and sinker.

Wait, the Sprint center MAKES money. Why mess it up with a sports team?

The Sprint Center is being used by the NBA and NHL. Every time an existing team wants a new arena or an upgrade they use the Sprint Center as leverage. Way to go Mayor K you just made NBA and NHL owners a bunch more money.

You also lied when you said Kemper would remain viable. But hey, lying is so prevent among politicians that if they ever tell the truth it's news.

They SAY that the Sprint Center makes money... I wonder if they pay any taxes?

CLAIM: "The latest round of NHL expansion talk doesn't even bother to mention Kansas City."

Fact: All THREE stories mention Kansas City. All three.

War is peace, freedom is slavery I guess.

11:07 I know you find your version of TKC GOTCHA!!! fun and exciting... Tony is correct in that the latest "round of expansion talk" doesn't mention KC as a potential candidate at this time.

You see how context is important? The first half of the sentence makes the second half true, in context.

But whatever about this blog substitutes for not being able to work the NYT crossword puzzle... see you again tomorrow!

Kansas City is still a center for dog hockey.
