I do understand that Kemper is "functionally obsolete" now that we have Sprint Center. But I hate to see it go; lots of memories of going to Blades hockey games. And I am still more of a fan of the old types of scoreboards with the segmented digits versus the all LED-screen type like they have today.

And I do realize that it's not in the city's best interests to continue to pump money into it.
I'd be happy if we could have a series of events as a "farewell tour"; some hockey and basketball games for a finale, then close it down.

Another yard ape KC project designed to bend over the tax payers again.

"Kemper Arena will remain a viable venue after the Sprint Center is built". Just another lie from our civic leaders.
