How sad that Craig Glazer thinks Kansas City is a city of born losers…
I won’t bore you with the list of world class humans that have called this town home. However I will say , Craig, your main general point that Kansas City isn’t a good sports town is just plain weird.
If Triangles had a god, it would have three sides. We all add our own experience to our interpretation of reality, and so if you think Kansas City has Loser in its DNA, consider who has been in control of your own life.
Maybe David Cook is a good working model for this thought.
To many it looks like Cook is washed up. However most of the folks who say that don’t really see how much money “washed up” stars actually make – a lot. More significantly, David Cook has the potential to write new songs, pick up acting parts, land commercials and explore other avenues without having to start completely over from scratch.
Back to Craig…
It’s true Kansas City can’t be L.A. because we don’t have an ocean. Nor can we be Denver because we don’t have mountains. But nor can they be us because they don’t have us living there.
To paraphrase Groucho Marx, “It isn’t necessary to have relatives in Kansas City in order to be unhappy.”
