Despite hope for a delay we learn a couple of cruel facts about the Super Bowl celebration . . .
Parade is scheduled regardless of weather conditions
And then . . .
Organizers: Moving Chiefs parade because of snow was never an option
In her unique style of prose our pal Tracy Thomas tells us . . .
Here's something nobody has anticipated--
ARRIVALS will be spaced out--some will go very early, etc.
Several round trips for each bus.
Takes an hour to Oak Park mall on a GOOD day!
Longer to Independence, etc.
But ALL will want to DEPART at the same time, from Union Station.
No way there will be enough busses then.
All the toilet paper will be gone.
You wont be able to phone your friends lost in the crowd.
You will be cold and your legs will ache.
And it's not like you can walk a mile north, back to 12th St. and duck into Macy's or Jones Store and shop for at least two hours.
Update, The Pitch makes me laugh with their coverage written in bigger print . . .
We have a celebratory parade tearing through town tomorrow. Early estimates think we may be looking at up to a million people attending. NOT A THREATENING AMOUNT OF ATTENDEES AT ALL. Certainly helped by all the businesses whose HR departments have given up on the uphill fight of keeping folks in the office.
