Favorite Sporting KC Player: Tim Melia

Favorite Part about Kansas City: It’s home. As much as I love the barbeque, sports, and fountains, what I have always appreciated most about KC is that it has everything you could want in a major city while also having the familiarity, ease, and hospitality of a small town.  

Something Most People Don’t Know About Me: I grew up on a small farm raising pigs and cattle. It is one of the many factors that make me a self-proclaimed KC BBQ snob.
