The TKC Communiqué - Celebrating The Kansas City World Cup Scam
By Tony • Issue #53 • View online
Of course the World Cup is a scam … But here’s the thing: So is EVERYTHING else.
For our part, we think that one of the greatest signs of maturity is realizing that pro-sports is rigged. Millions of bucks worth of revenue isn’t decided by a bouncing ball in much the same way that our vote and/or social media opinion doesn’t count as much as we’d like to think … But that’s a note for another day …
Right now we want to focus on the fantasy that soccer is going to save this cowtown.
First and foremost, on this side of the planet fútbol is mostly enjoyed by people South of the border. And it’s hard for anyone to imagine that KCMO wants to invite more Mexicans to this town. On the bright side … There’s no need to worry about parking at Arrowhead given that three Chevys packed with our paisan could probably hold a crowd that would fill Arrowhead.
The benefit for hotels, local restaurants and another chance to extend the streetcar is a bit trickier. The civic impact of “mega-events” is always hard to gauge.
Real talk …
Typically, the people who profit most from a large influx of tourists are prostitutes.
It’s possible that there’s some kind of ancillary benefit for doctors and purveyors of hemorrhoid cream several days down the line … But I digress
The point here is that it’ll be hard to find a benefit for the average Kansas City resident whilst the money that local leaders want to spend for these games might be better used on fixing local potholes, sewers, hiring more police or providing free, reusable bullet proof vests for weekend Westport patrons.
Finally … As we approach midterms it’s hard to not to lose faith in all things concerning local Democracy. Today the former, disgraced Missouri Guv aired a “RINO Hunting” clip that was mostly just a troll designed to garner publicity. There’s a show-trial that’s still making nationwide news after snitches helped organize an actually scary riot that seemingly didn’t know how the electoral college works. And AOC STILL seems to that calling peple La-Tinx is something other than an insult.
Sorry, we wish there were some solutions we could offer but the answers are probably hidden in Ashley Biden’s diary and THAT is getting shipped off to the same gubmint building where they keep the Ark Of the Covenant that Indiana Jones looted from a 3rd world country which the Bush family likely bombed years later.

And all of that inspires us to share some of our top links, stories and headlines for today …
