View Full Version : my long day at Kauffman Stadium

Work brought me to Kauffman Stadium in KC yesterday and it was the telecast from hell.

Because ESPN was televising the game NESN was forced to use camera positions not usually used and we found out very quickly why. Our CF cameras became useless as the fountains in CF were in use for almost the entire game and the spray kept landing on the lens.

Must admit the park still looks great considering it is 34 years old but for those that thought the upper deck at The Cell was steep they should check out the upper deck at Kauffman as I think it is very similar to the way USCF was.

Royals will be a scrappy club in 2007 perhaps winning as many as 75 games, be wary of them.

Highlight of the day was the flyover of a B-2 stealth bomber.....it just appeared out of nowhere.

That's how those B-2's like to roll.

There's a big air force base just south of Kansas City, if you're ever driving on 70, you will see the planes a lot as head towards KC.

But I thought it was the "invisible plane!!" :redneck

The B2 bombers are stationed at Whiteman AFB. That was my last duty assignment before I retired from the USAF. The base is about 60 east/slightly-southeast of Kansas City, about equidistant between Warrensburg & Sedalia.

When I was at Kauffman opening day 2004, they flew the B2 & a couple of A-10s from the base for the fly by.
