Kansas City Saturday News Link Roll



With respect to hottie Denise, under the hood of the new favorite social media app. Turns out Instagram isn't all that witty -- Which is probably too much to ask for any social media app dedicated to rolling over the populace into an army of online marketers.

Meanwhile, we roll through Saturday news links that are mostly related to traffic. Take a look:

KC Ketchup QB Serve More Hype

NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes thinks he could possibly make a 100-yard throw, but only in one city

If we learned one thing about Patrick Mahomes during his first full season as a starting quarterback last year, it's that he has an absolute cannon for an arm. During the preseason, Mahomes showed off that cannon when he threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill that traveled an estimated 68.6 yards through the air.


Northland Road To Flooding

Authorities close multiple roads in Platte County due to flooding

PLATTE COUNTY, MO (KCTV) - The authorities have closed numerous roads in Platte County due to flooding, including 92 Highway west of Tracy. They said they are also monitoring the highway east of Tracy because it is partially covered and could also need to be closed.


Royals Still On Road To Nowhere

Joey Gallo hit another home run and you'll never guess what happened next!

Baseball is a weird sport. Not because of the result of this game. The Royals lost 6-2 and that was pretty predictable. But I'm old enough to remember when Joey Gallo was a mediocre third-baseman. Now, suddenly, he's an above average centerfielder. And man, he's walking in nearly 20% of his plate appearances.


And this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .

Mahomes also added that the throw would have to be with a wet nerf ball.

I stole that joke from Brody Stevens, RIP.
