Kansas City is a great town. The people are good and they love their Royals.

I lived in Kansas City ten years.  It's a great town.  The people are decent, they work hard, their word is their bond.

Kansas City is the Heart of America.  Midwestern in all the ways that are good. 

When I hire people, if they are from the East Coast, I give them an extra 10 brownie points.  People from the East Coast have hustle and ambition.  They move quickly.  All good.

If someone is from the Midwest, I give them 20 extra brownie points.  I know they will work hard -- and that they can be trusted.

If someone is from LA, where we operate, that person starts with an automatic negative 50 brownie points.  There are a lot of people in LA who sound very sincere and who will promise you anything, but then start flaking out the very next day. 

"Oh, I had an audition.  Did you really expect me to come in today?" 

They're all actors.  And good ones.

People in KC don't act.  They are who they are.  There's no ego, no posturing.  What you see is what you get.  And it's almost always all good.

I don't follow baseball so closely, but Kansas City represents the best of America, so I'm delighted to say "Go Royals!"
