KANSAS CITY SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! TKC CONGRATS: BISHOP MIEGE STAGS STAY WINNING KANSAS 4A-I FOOTBALL TITLE!!!
We finish our Kansas City evening on the topic of football once again and offer tribute to local Catholic victory . . .
An acknowledgement of Kansas City metro Catholic high school dominance: Bishop Miege won its fourth straight 4A-I title with a 47-7 win
Nope, this isn't a bit of pathetic Al Bundy reminiscing about high school football because the glory days of TKC weren't that glorious. TKC makes no connection to his high school alma matter because he played on a 90s era Miege team that was one of the absolute worst this institution has ever seen.
Instead, we note this win just as a quick compliment to the concept of hard work, competition and victory that still exists among the NEXTGEN even as adults attempt to change the rules and turn achievement into a disadvantage.
Yes, even in red state Conservative Kansas . . . Frustrated rural schools have attacked the KC metro institution and rage against alleged recruiting tactics which may or may not offer the edge against po'dunk towns with a small talent pool despite equal student population numbers. Some say the adult footballer complaint is akin to Hillary Clinton's last remaining supporters blathering about the popular vote despite well defined American election rules.
Either way, it's a mistake to get too hung up on high school football and this post is already going too long . . .
Allow TKC just one recollection:
Miege is an excellent institution which provides one of the best educations in the Midwest and it's a place where I learned that life was unfair - Which is something that most Americans seem unwilling or unable to comprehend in an era where social media attempts to make every mobile phone user the center of the Universe.
And so . . . By hook or crook, just a quick tribute to continued Miege success with this playlist of favorite old school songs from all-Black female superstars who also dominated their era that will power our morning update as we continue to move forward.
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night . . .
