    We're staying at the Embassy Suites in Westport and rolled out of bed for the complimentary breakfast about 8am. While we were standing in line the food service workers kept chirping "Rock chalk" & "go KU".

    Kent looks one of them in the eye and says "this is why you're on THAT side of the line and we're on THIS side."

    If he would have been holding a microphone, that would have been a good place to drop it.

    Not related to the Big 12 tournament, but at a flooring convention, we paid the cabbies extra to race the other salespeople's cab back to the hotel from Kelly's. We also left one of our people on the elevator because he was too drunk to realize that we had stopped and gotten off at our floor.

    Love the Embassy at Westport. Stay there every time we're in KC. Quick shuttle trip down to the plaza, can walk to Kelly's/west port bars, easy drive to downtown.


    My favorite memory was watching the ISU/Kentucky game in the lobby last year. Even though we lost, when we made the run to tie it, everyone was going nuts. Was just a fun atmosphere to be around.

    Not really a story, but I've seen a lot of Missouri and Iowa fans taking in the Big 12 Tournament festivities. I think they're lost.

    This isn't 100% about Kansas City, but there was this one time that Iowa lost to 11th seeded Northwestern in the first round of the Big 10 tournament, and all of the ISU fans in Kansas City laughed in unison. It was awesome.

    I met Travis Ford at the Westin. I asked what he thinks about foul or defend while I was in head to toe ISU gear. He just walked away.

    What was the reaction/response from them?

    They shut up for a minute. Seemed like they were thinking about what he said. Then they came back and played it like they were just kidding. "Hey we love ISU. You guys support your team.

    Yeah. Whatever, beaker. Now get going and warm up some more bacon. The pan's getting low.

    Speaking of Embassy Suites. That was a regular hangout for several years, very easy walk from Kelly's. Haven't been in few years. Do they still have the Happy Hour?

    Probably glad you already had your food at that point so no "tampering" could be done.

    This was my first reaction. "Jesus, Kent. Don't jerk with the people who will spit in our food."

    The best part of the exchange was Kent going nuclear right off the bat. No escalation. No back & forth. Just throwing the heater inside on the first pitch.
