Bottom Feeders Unite: ESPN Tosses KC a Bone

The sad state of Kansas City’s professional sports scene has resulted – by my limited measure – in an ongoing spate of spares sports coverage by national media like ESPN the Magazine

    Until the city wakes up and gets off its ass
    and gets a new vibrant leader this entire metro
    is dead.
