Kansas City Kansas
Kansas City has had its Royals since 1969 when they took the place of the Kansas City Athletics who abandoned Missouri for the gentle ocean breezes of the west coast and Oakland Almadea Coliseum. When we say Kansas City however... we aren't talking about Kansas City Kansas... we're talking about Kansas City Missouri. Kansas City is really a twin city ... divided in 2 by the Missouri River... one half of this great city lies in Missouri and the other half lies in Kansas. While most of Americans assume that, despite the divide, that Kansas City is one big united entity... those who know the area well will tell you differently.
