WEEKEND HANGOVER: DOWNTOWN DRUNK ON NOSTALGIA WITH OLD SCHOOL GARTH BROOKS & LOSING KANSAS CITY ROYALS!!!
The party downtown continued this weekend with fans of horrible music celebrating a team at the bottom of their division.
A few more takeaways on the topic of the Kansas City Royals joining Garth Brooks on stage over the weekend . . .
- The Kansas City Royals are now more interested in branding than baseball. This publicity stunt with an adoring crowd is reminiscent of the team's 2015 glory days that are now long gone as they sit at the bottom of the division. Moreover, a great many denizens of our blog community notice that these pros are looking a bit old and seem to fit in all to well with retro-cowboy Garth Brooks.
- Sprint Center hosting has-beens is exactly what some local denizens warned us about . . . Rather than the competition KCMO was promised with an NHL or NBA team, Downtown is now home to a guy who hasn't crafted a worthwhile original song in nearly 20 years. Garth has a great many fans and that's great . . . It's also fair to remember that not everybody in town likes this brand of mainstream country music that mostly serves as target marketing for bad restaurants, even worse cars and boner pills. More to the point, this Garth Brooks retro concert mini-stand reveals a lack of progress for the Sprint Center over the past decade.
- Did you know that Willie Nelson has a new album/song out that pretty much dismisses Prez Trump??? Just throwing that out there to let our eclectic TKC blog community know about more thoughtful options than stale fast food twangy tunes.
You decide . . .
