Redux: Turn Kansas City Star Building Into Downtown Baseball Stadium?!?!

Public radio offers click bait and imagines this cowtown has HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS to finance the antics of a last place team whilst COVID-19 has created a MASSIVE shortfall that threatens to bankrupt this town. 

The punch line . . . The luckiest of KC Star newsies now enjoy (half pay) employment at this news outlet and pretend to help their friends who weren't as fortunate. 

Take a peek .  ..  

Could The Star's Soon-To-Be Vacated Building Make Way For A Downtown Baseball Stadium?

With the news that The Kansas City Star will vacate its massive, glass building at 1601 McGee downtown, the big question is what will become of the iconic, two-block-long structure. The Star moved into the 424,000-square-foot building in mid-2018 after moving out of its longtime, red-brick home at 1729 Grand just a block southwest.

What a great idea!! Right next to the P&L District. As a matter of fact, let's pay for it with the imaginary money we are making on the P&L!!!

I thought the bars had to close early because of the pandemic.

Let’s start the Corn Hole Hall of Fame. And we can run a trolley from the basketball thing in the sprint center to the cor hole hof then to 18 th vine.

Downtown baseball won’t work because almost all the downtown residents are homosexuals. The only part about baseball that interests them is when the batter has 3 balls and no strikes.

Downtown baseball won't work because the fans don't want to be mugged, raped and assaulted on the way to their cars. Just like the Plaza, it's too close to where the muggers, rapists and assaulters live.

Tear down the building and build a stadium across the highway. Rosana has spent much time formulating this idea. Will be a perfect!

Baseball is fucking boring

instead of wasting money on a stadium, lets make the toy train run through the ghetto

She also suggested a 10 foot wide and 50 foot long football field across the highway. transportation is via toy train and air balloons. Will be torn down in 16 years to move to plaza, built across brush creek.

It really would make a perfect homeless shelter and the residents would be much more tolerable than the Kansas Shitty Scar staff. Jus' sayin!

rosana is an excellent example of why sexism is completely unfounded.

makes more sense to turn it into an indoor rock climbing, botanical garden, and winter retreat for giraffes. YEEES!

Fill it full of water; drop in some fish and a couple of sting rays and we have the new Kansas City Aquarium for much less than $75 million.

If we keep spending money we don't have, pretty soon we really won't have any.
