Day 6 Recap: Kansas City

This seems like it was a long time ago because, well, it was. Oh well. Dave and I were actually the most surprised by Kansas City. The city, anyway. It seemed bigger and more developed than we would’ve ever imagined. Kauffman Stadium, however, is everything you’ve ever imagined … and less.

Dan: This is our KC host, Justin, another one of Dave’s buddy from USC. I know, I know.
Dave: You can’t buy that type of casual confidence. Fight on.

Dave: This is our lunch at Jack Stack Barbecue, a popular KC bbq place.
Dan: I don’t know any other way of describing this other than “nap food.” I nodded off briefly after that ridiculous stack (jack stack?) of onion rings.

Dave: They made us park our truck miles away, with dozens of empty lots between us and Kauffman. I wasn’t happy.
Dan: For some reason, Dave expressed his outrage by displaying athleticism that can be most accurately be described as “adequate.”

Dan: Me with my statue family. What?
Dave: This could be the exact moment where Dan “lost it.”

Dave: It’s always a little weird asking people to take these sorts of pictures.
Dan: I’m not sure if it’s excitement or the number of empty seats that’s building.

Dan: Empty seats, empty concessions, no outfield waterfall seating…
Dave: Royals Baseball, the excitement is building!!

Dave: Dan liked this view because it made it look like Kauffman Stadium was in the middle of the hatch on Lost.
Dan: 4 8 15 16 23 42…4 8 15 16 23 42…4 8 15 16 23 42…aaahhhh!!!

Dave: This is Dan’s way of saying he’s in the mood for KC females. He’s kind of weird.
Dan: Wassup ladies?

Dave: Dan with the World Series trophy.
Dan: Notice the look of surprise on my face. Actiiiiing!!

Dan: Dave was upset that the Royals jacked “True Blue” from the Dodgers.
Dave: It would probably make more sense if it just said “Sorta Blue-ish”

Dave: Sadly, we missed John Mayberry bobblehead night. Overweight goatee guy is pumped.
Dan: John Mayberry is black?

Dan: What?
Dave: Nevermind.

Dave: These were our tri-tip sandwiches.
Dan: Dave’s looks like a mardi-gras situation, whereas I clearly made a mistake in ordering the questionable special-sauce.

Dave: Action shot!
Dan: This is clearly the most flattering picture of my nose that could possibly ever be captured on film. Thanks, Dave.
Dave: Don’t mention it.

Dan: An empty Dippin’ Dots cart.
Dave: I guess it’s no longer the future of ice cream. Sigh.

Dan: As a girl walked by, this guy said he liked her skirt, to which she replied, “Thanks,” and kept walking. He then said, “Let’s see what’s under it.”
Dave: Dan’s just pissed that his material is getting stolen.

Dave: I rule.
Dan: Dave rules.

Dan: In the middle of the 6th, everyone sings a Garth Brooks song, led by GB himself.
Dave: Apparently, GB has friends in low places. Watch below.

Dave: Daily pose-off.
Dan: You win this one, Strumpf.

KC Food Update later.

    Glad to see you are carrying the official card of baseball, Dave. Sad that you are no longer proudly wearing the UVA hat.

    Educate yourselves before you bash stadiums. Ever heard of “renovations?” Come visit this year. Why so “suprised” at how developed and nice KC is? It’s the midwest..not the freakin moon.
