Was downtown today, went to the Keeper of the Plains, Riverside Park, and dinner at the Old Mill Tasty Shop.  Quality day.  That revamped area at the Keeper is actually well done.

The game is tomorrow 1PM at the Farha Sports Center, just south of Meridan and 31st street south, also accessible via the south Meridan exit of I-235

No, what troll?  Is this something that happened when I was drunk and don't remember?

Also when I was at Riverside Park I couldn't stop thinking about #gottlieb4ksu

Just downtown and the airport, and neither signal is strong or reliable.  The downtown 4G signal is either at Century II/Hyatt or LD Stadium.  It doesn't pick up in Old Town & when I was at Old Mill today I had a very weak 4G signal.  The signal at the airport is slightly stronger (I live about 2 miles SE of the airport and can get a faint signal at times) but is much less reliable.

I'm sure the Sprint press release telling us we'll get 4G LTE in the 2nd quarter of 2013 is just a few weeks away, I predict we'll actually have legit 4G sometime around 2016.

You could always grab a quick bite to eat at Willie C's before heading out to see the Wings play.  The the next day you could take the whole fam over to Fantasea.

Losing the Wings, Fantasea and Willie C's was a huge blow to the city.  Still hasn't recovered.  It's possible that it never will.

Just another night in Old Town:

Quote
Wichita police arrested three people in Old Town on Sunday in an incident that began when a man threw an inflatable penis at an officer's horse.

Officers were patrolling Old Town on horseback at about 1:20 a.m. when they came across a large group of women in their early- to mid-20s who had been celebrating at a bachelorette party, police said.

Also in the group was a 24-year-old man, a brother to one of the women at the party. He was carrying a 5-foot-long inflatable penis, police said.

"While he was joking around with this toy, he launched this large toy toward one of our officers, who was on horseback," police spokesman Gordon Bassham said.

The toy struck the officer's horse, causing the horse to get spooked, he said.

Police arrested the man, of Eastborough, on suspicion of battery of a law enforcement officer, in this case, the horse.

A woman, upset at the arrest, grabbed the arresting officer's arm, police said. She too was arrested.

While the crowd was being dispersed, another woman in the party was arrested when she struck a horse's head, police said. The horse stepped on the foot of that woman, who was treated on the scene, then taken to jail.

Is there any purpose to police horses other than to bait drunk people into assaulting them?  eff those things.

The tv show McCloud 1970-77 about a small timey Marshall transplanted to NYC had Marshall Sam McCloud riding all crazy ass around NYC.He killed a lot of people iirc and had mad horse riding skills and not once do I remember anyone even getting close enough to assault his horse.I think big city horse cops these days lack mad horse riding skills and as a result can`t keep their horses out of harms way and citizens end up paying the price.

If a horse steps on your foot, you should legally be allowed to punch it right in the face IMO. Or whack it with a 5-foot inflatable penis (btw, I love that someone apparently measured the penis like it was in a lineup standing in front of one of those walls with the heights marked and someones like "oh yeah thats him the five-footer over there." Or, that they asked a witness to estimate: "how long would you say the penis was, mam?" "well, I didn't get a very good look. It was dark you know, and we'd all been drinking. But I'd say at least five feet.")

Also, judging by the irrational police response, it was obviously an ethnic penis.
