Kansas, Kansas State and Wichita State all are well represented in St. Louis. Downtown is awash in people from the state of Kansas.
Mayor Slay tweeted yesterday: Downtown probably has more Kansans in its hotels and restaurants than Topeka does." Actually I think he meant, "...more than the population of Topeka
And Kansas City and Wichita and every other Kansas town with a tv station brought their news people.
There were more news cams and still photographers aiming at the Jayhawks practice session than most teams have at real games.
A woman news reporter sat down and interviewed this Kansas family of fans and I'd bet Lizzie, Nick and I were in part of it.
In the end, all these Kansas fans will be putting lots and lots of money into the St. Louis area economy.
