Is it weird that WaPo seemed to make a point to add the state to Kansas City?

i would feel extremely validated. 7/7 on the validation scale
Was it everything you thought it would be?

I don't know if it was weird but it's definitely inconsistent given they have New York, Boston, Miami, Dallas, and San Francisco on there and there won't be a solitary match played in any of those cities.

Imagine taking off work to go to PNL to watch an announcement that in 4 years a soccer game between Portugal and Japan will happen in Kansas City

This feels like the beginning of the end of sports in KC. We’ve had 4 World Series, 4 STR4IIGHT AFC ships, like over 100 final fours, this is the jump the shark moment.

I've never been to a world cup match but I have been to an international sporting event and one thing that's evident is that pretty much every country in the world cares about sports more than we do here. The passion in which these people cheer for the teams they care about is wild to see.

Hey Dax, SUCK IT ALABAMA!
Protective Stadium was still under construction.  All stadiums had to be operational for the evaluation.

Stadiums had to be operational at evaluation time  to be considered. 

Besides, BHAM has already hosted WC matches.    It’s good to see lil ol KC be invited to the big leagues.

BHAM can’t hog all the  international stuff. 

World Games start in 3 weeks.

WC Qualifier in Arrowhead opened my eyes to soccer.  I was floored by the passion.  There were smoke bombs / flares in the stadium.  Wild.

Get a life weirdos. (Not you MIR or anyone else in this thread, I was talking about the super passionate international sports fans that MIR was referencing)

My bad.  It was the Olympics. 

Congrats to KC for finally hitting the International stage.
