    JJ's on the plaza, that up Ward Parkway a bit. Scary sight.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    It sounds like there was a car accident that broke the gas line and caused the explosion.

    Oh KC. The cops said a car accident caused the gas leak, the fire department said it wasn't a car accident, the city manager didn't know, and somebody told CNN it was a construction contractor.

    This is devastating. I cannot imagine standing around as an employee smelling gas waiting for the fire department to come check it out... Has anyone seen a video of the explosion?
