Memphis, Tennessee, and Kansas City, Missouri! Two of my most favorite places on Earth! Your Arrowhead Adventurer has spent more than a few weekends listening to the best blues, sampling the best BBQ, and of course enjoying pro sports in both places.
Therefore, Dontari, I can say with confidence, that if you liked Memphis, you’re gonna love Kansas City.
I love Memphis BBQ. Rib-wise, I think Memphis does a better job. Sauce-wise, Kansas City hands down.
At 350 pounds and an ability to sprint nearly 20 mph, I won’t be standing in your way of a rib sampler, dude.
When it comes to BBQ sandwiches, (pulled pork in both places), I give the nod to KC. You certainly get more for your money in KC.
Blues joints are easier to find in Memphis, and it’s always hard to beat a summer Saturday evening on Beale street. Still I think there tends to be more high quality blues in KC than in Memphis. Jazz , no question, is king in KC.
You gotta drive a long long way to catch a pro football game if you live in Memphis. Kansas City, of course has the best team, the best stadium, and the best atmosphere in the world.
Memphis tried with the Manics. Sorry, guys, but nice try. There can only be one pro football league in the U.S.
Baseball can get pretty bad in KC. And it can get pretty good in Memphis. Yet , in my books, a major league team beats AAA every time. Kauffman Stadium is hard to beat. The Truman Sports Complex is unbeatable. Period.
You have to go a long way to beat a weekend in Kansas City when the Chiefs are playing in town. Long way — hell, Kansas City is the best!
What it would be like to be a Combine record-setting, top draft pick with newly acquired millions in Kansas City is hard to imagine.
Yet it’s happening to yo,u Dontari.
Welcome to Kansas City, Mr. Poe. You’re gonna love it here. We sure do.
