Kansas City Chiefs & Royals Endorse Jackson County Sales Tax Extension

And so . . . Top ranking Kansas City ballers and Super Bowl champs make an important pitch that seems to be the cornerstone of the campaign to build a monstrous stadium downtown. 

Here's a bit of description and then a glimpse at the advert that will dominate local online viewing and newscasts for about another month . . .

A new commercial paid for by the Committee to keep the Chiefs and Royals in Jackson County includes stars from both teams throwing their support behind the ballot initiative.

The spot opens with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce saying, “We Need You ...”

Royals shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. is then shown finishing the sentence by saying “To vote yes on Question 1.”

Chiefs safety Justin Reid appears and says, “We’ve all made Kansas City a major-league city.” Defensive end George Karlaftis chimes in with: “Let’s keep it that way.”

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes takes the baton and says: “There’s no place better in the world to play than Arrowhead Stadium.”

Kelce, who apparently recorded his part of the commercial before shaving his beard last month ahead of a trip to see girlfriend Taylor Swift in Australia, adds: “Let’s keep it that way.”

Royals catcher Salvador Perez then says: 

“Vota sí.” Translated: Vote yes.
