Hi and welcome to the Kansas City Sports Monitor. I’m Bob Sloop.
I started this website in February of 2019 to give Kansas City sports fans coverage they deserve. It started with posts on the website and has since grown to include a daily column, called the Motley Crew, with all of the sports news from the previous day as well as some commentary.
In August of 2019, I started a podcast. It started out small but has since started to grow. At the end of 2019, the podcast had 600 downloads. Now the number of downloads is in the thousands. There is plenty of room for growth because very few people know about the website.
The last Saturday of 2019 was the debut of a weekly column called the Saturday Reader. The Saturday Reader highlights five stories I read over the past week that I found interesting and think you will as well. It quickly became a very popular column and helped introduce more and more people to the website. This is on hold for now because frankly with sports limited right now there are not a lot of great pieces. There is too much politics and writers pushing their agenda on us right now and it is all coming from one side.
I have a lot more ideas. Check back daily to see what’s new. Sign up for emails to keep up with all of the latest going on here. I will email you with new features as they become available so you don’t miss anything.
Thanks to everyone who has read posts on the website, listened to the podcast, or contacted me. I really appreciate you spending some of your valuable time with me. I would love to get to know everyone better and hope to provide a way to do this in the future.
