Deadspin Hates Kansas City & The Chiefs

There are many classic lines in this post but this one is my favorite:

"Everything in KC is a second-rate version of something else. It claims it’s a big jazz hotbed because Count Basie played there almost 100 years ago before he saved up enough money to go to a real city . . ."

Hey! Don't forget that Ernest Hemmingway got his start here!

"Paris of the Plains, my ass. Your city is nothing but a collection of methheads waiting to happen. You guys should get down on your knees and thank Christ that you share a state with St. Louis, otherwise the rest of the world would focus on YOUR trashiness. At its best, Kansas City is average. At its worst, it does literal harm to the country ... This is a place known for shit that you can get in many other places: barbecue, jazz, forged Oxycontin prescriptions, etc. It has nothing to call its own, really."

Gotta love it.

6:52? Are you insane or just stupid? I'm curious. We should be thankful we share the state with STL?! Are you kidding me? Really? KC isn't perfect but it's a lot better than that trash hole/congested pile of shit. I'll take our BBQ and jazz over any place else. GTFO and don't comment on stuff you know nothing about.

Kansas City is just an American city, better than other cities in some respects, and worse in others. I have not heard anybody refer to it as Paris of the Plains except in a sardonic manner. The poster however is unhinged. It must suck to be such a superior being doomed to cohabit with and flip hamburgers for one's obvious inferiors. He or she is mad at life more than at KCMO. Not that any of the rest of us care. Keep flipping those burgers.

We're doing OK even though we'd be doing much better if only a certain self-described hipster would click his widdle heels and return to Kansas.

HEY TONY THEY MENTIONED YOU! BUT YOU'RE ABOUT THIRTIETH-RATE.

Thirtieth rate? So that would explain your reading TKC I suppose.
