Patrick Mahomes Risks Credibility By Hyping NHL In Kansas City

To start #TBT we want to give credit to our blog community who dutifully remembered an important series of events from the not-so-distant past.

In fact . . .

Way back when they still printed relevant "news" on dead trees . . . The Pitch published an EPIC summary of an  embarrassing debacle for local leaders. 

Remember . . .

"The highlight was (hockey great Mario) Lemieux saying there was never a possibility of the Penguins moving to Kansas City.

“We had to do a few things to put pressure on the city and the state,” he said. “Those trips to Kansas City and Las Vegas and other cities were just to go, have a nice dinner and come back.”

"And like a whore, the Sprint Center waits for the next team to promise her they’ll call her after they screw her."
