FAMOUS KANSAS CITIANS AND MISSOURIANS AND A COUPLE OF KANSANS:
george brett- not from kc, but it is his home now. we loyal royals fans think he is pretty close to heaven and wish he would come out of retirement and help revive our miserable team. once i called him georgie porgie and my brother steve said that was the most disrespectful thing i could do. i was 5.matt tegenkamp- olympic athlete who graduated from the high school just down the road from my house. i taught him all he knows about running.
chuck norris- or as we call him, carlos ray norris. he lived in prairie village, kansas for a short time. nice guns.
