Kansas City is one of the best sports towns in the country, and KC Kingdom has a lot of fun bringing you news from around the area for our professional and collegiate teams.
Few fans are as passionate about their teams than Kansas City fans, whether it is making Arrowhead Stadium the loudest outside venue in the world, or filling up Sporting Park each match, or being Royal in Kauffman Stadium. The area also supports three of the most passionate college fan bases in the country.
Each morning, we will try to bring you some news from around our sports kingdom, in addition to the news, information, editorials, and analysis KC Kingdom already provides.
We may also pass along an interesting post or two from around the world wide web, just for fun.
We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom. Happy reading!
Gary Bedore of the Lawrence Journal World, and KuSports.com, reported that Andrew Wiggins won the Danny Manning “Mr. Jayhawk” award for this past season. It will be the only season in which Wiggins and fellow freshman Joel Embiid will suit up for the Jayhawks, as both opted for the 2014 NBA Draft. While both will be missed, it is hard to really miss players who were part of your team for so short of a time.
On Kings of Kauffman, David Hill is of the opinion that it is time to move Billy Butler down in the line-up. I would be in favor of swapping Salvador Perez and Billy Butler until the latter finds his stroke, as David suggests.
Fortunately for the Royals, for as cold as Butler has been, they have someone that has been equally hot with the bat. Salvador Perez, despite batting directly in front of Moustakas, has been the Royals best hitter this season. Even with minimal protection, Perez still leads the American League in doubles, and is in the top ten in batting average, on base percentage and OPS+.
Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Prides asked an intriguing question. If Teddy Bridgewater were to drop and still be available when the Chiefs select, should Kansas City take him. My answer is if John Dorsey and Andy Reid think he can be a franchise quarterback, then yes. If not, then take a game changing wide receiver.
RoyalsRetro on Royals Review reports the Royals are interested in Joel Hanrahan. Other than a super cool first name, I just don’t see what Joel Hanrahan has to offer Kansas City.
Finally, the on excellent golf site Pro Golf Now, Les Bailey takes on interesting look at how Tiger Woods fits into the national golf scene now. It is a very entertaining read. Check it out.
Be sure to check out KC Kingdom throughout the day for news on the Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC, Tigers, Wildcats, and Jayhawks.
