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!

Over in Royals-land, Hunter Samuels at Kings of Kauffman has a report on the recent performance of some hot Royals rospects, including Bubba Starling.

Of course, most fans are more concerned this season with the performance of the big club, rather than prospects in the pipeline. Hitting has been the major concern all season. David Hill of Kings of Kauffman writes that it’s time for Eric Hosmer to step up.

The Chiefs made a startling rise last year, going from 2-14 to 11-5 under the new John Dorsey/Andy Reid regime. Arrowhead Addict’s Ben Nielsen asks the question that has to be on every fan’s mind: were the Chiefs one year wonders?

Three things the Chiefs have going for them that the 2010 team did not is they have substantially better coaching and quarterback play, a deeper roster that is built with a philosophy suited for the modern game, and stability.

Canadian doctor/offensive tackle Laurent Duvarney-Tardif was one of the most fascinating picks of the 2014 draft, despite lasting until the 7th round. Arrowhead Addict’s Ben Nielsen posts links to videos of Duvarney-Tardif in action.
