What have we learned from yesterday’s KU Elite Eight debacle?
Follow sports for fun or money, not to win titles. Kansas City just isn’t and never will be title town. We live in the Midwest, players think it’s boring here. Our media is weak kneed. And the city is way too conservative – do-gooders to the max.
So we don’t win much and nobody outside of here really much gives a damn.
Man, I remember how cool it was when I was in the gym in Vegas about seven years back. A couple guys were wearing Chiefs jerseys to work out in. We were at Caesar’s in the big gym, and I said, "Hey, you guys from KC too?" And they said, "No, we just like the team and the jersey."
One had Joe Montana on it the other Marcus Allen. It made me feel 10 feet tall when I said, "Oh, I am from KC, I know those guys."
Yep, those George Brett and Otis Taylor shirts are pretty dull now. Faded, just like the 90’s Chiefs.
We haven’t been in a Super Bowl for nearly half a century and a quarter century for a World Series. Maybe Bill Self won’t win another national championship. When we won the World Series did you think it would take a lifetime to win another?
How about those who were around 40 years ago for the Super Bowl Chiefs?
Will it be a lifetime again now for KU? Hope not. Lets just have fun watching and enjoying the atmosphere at our stadiums or on TV.
WE just don’t have any big time winners to root for.
The Chiefs? Come on now. The Royals? Great farm system (again). KU, a long shot now for the near future, but they are about the only team that might get there before we all die.
So let’s all find something more important to bitch about.
