KC Kingdom is growing and our goal is to be the best Kansas City area sports site on the internet. Ben and I are pleased to announce we have added several new staff members, including Craig Webb. Craig will be helping in our effort to expand our Kansas Jayhawk coverage, plus maybe some Royals content, and some general local sports commentary. W are excited to have him writing for KC Kingdom.
Craig’s first couple of pieces included a personal ranking of some local area golf courses and the Jayhawks’ running back James Sims’ push to become a record holding rusher at Kansas.
Craig will offer KC Kingdom a degree of diversity in that, while he he is a big fan of the Royals and Jayhawks, he very much loathes the Chiefs. We will keep him away from any Chiefs topics! Don’t hold that against him, though – he does still hate the Yankees!
Craig has taken the time to answer the eight questions asked of all our new knights. Get to know Craig Webb:
I am a loyal follower of all my teams. I do not bandwagon hop, and I live and die with the same teams since early childhood. I have been a Dallas Cowboy fan since the 70’s because a family friend knew many of the Cowboy players and brought me back memorabilia. A towel game-used sweatband from Tony Dorsett, and a 8×10 of Roger Staubach autographed personally for a 8 year old kid……fan for life.
I am a Kansas farm kid and grew up near Buhler, Ks., population 1328 on a really busy day…..as if there are any busy days in Buhler. The best description of Buhler is it is Mayberry, and it was a great place for a kid to grow up.
University of Kansas…is there anywhere else?
Freight Broker. I was always shooting for Retired Astronaut billionaire playboy but I could not figure out how to pull it off…..
Wife, kids, and two four legged furry kids.
I love to play golf and watch most anything sports related. I like playing fantasy football and baseball even if my teams are never any good. For me it is more about the hanging out and smack-talk than anything.
Tough one but probably Danny and the Miracles beating Oklahoma in 1988, and “Mario’s Miracle” in the 2008 National Championship game. I remember in 1988, Billy Packer kept saying no way Kansas could keep up the fast paced, and that they would run out of gas playing OU’s game. After the game was over, he just could not bring himself to say he was wrong. Never liked Packer since.
Washington Redskins. The arch enemy of my beloved Cowboys. I still celebrate with gusto Joe Theismann‘s snapped leg. Now if only someone could bust that jaw. Is there any sportscaster more full of himself and over the top obnoxious?
New York Yankees. Really needs no explanation. It is the Yankees.
Missouri Tigers. Again really goes without needing an explanation. Probably the most delusional fan base in all of College Athletics, and AT LEAST HALF of them are also KC Chief fans. What a terrible combination. I celebrate every soul crushing and quirky loss the Tigers have…I get to celebrate a lot. Rock Chalk Jayhawk
