Updates from KC
It turns out the conference hotel is also the New York Yankees' hotel, as Yankees skipper Joe Girardi was chilling out in the lobby about an hour ago.
Kansas City surprised me. It's safe and clean, sports some really cool aesthetics, and comes off as a surprisingly modern town. Also, the bbq is brilliant. There is only one city in the world that has more fountains than Kansas City - Venice.
Today I'll be visiting the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and Kauffman Stadium, where the aforementioned Girardi will lead the mighty Yanks into battle against the peasant militia of baseball, the Kansas City Royals.
I hear the Dodgers were the Dodgers the last few days... score 15 runs one night, get shut out the next. Naturally.
