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!

Even though the NFL draft is complete, the player acquisition is still going on. Teams are now in a mad dash to secure the best unrestricted free agents (UFAs). Ben Nielsen at Arrowhead Addict is collecting a list of players the Chiefs are rumored to be interesting in signing.

So, were you busy over this weekend? That’s nothing compared to this Chiefs’ draftee who, not only joined the NFL, but also helped deliver twins this weekend. Arrowhead Pride has the story here.

Randy Covitz of the  Kansas City Star wrote an amusing story asserting that Alex Smith and Chase Daniel welcome the selection of a quarterback. Yeah. And I love getting a visits from my friendly IRS agent. I always welcome a guy who wants to eventually take my multi-million dollar a year job.

Over in Royal-world, Kings of Kauffman’s  David Hill asserts that Billy Butler isn’t going anywhere despite numerous fans calling for the Royals to deal their DH.

Hill writes:

Right now, with his .236/.292/.309 batting line and poor defensive reputation, Butler just is not an attractive trade chip. What exactly are people expecting that the Royals would get for him at this point?
