Robb Heineman Stadium Update

Wizards President Robb Heineman gave the fans an update on the stadium tonight. The short version is they are now confident enough to move ahead and they expect to be possibly moving dirt next week (Christmas present?). Seems that Robb is going to make good on his statement that they should be moving dirt by the end of the year.

There will still be a formal announcement, probably in early January. Robb said they still need to have all the documents signed (State of Kansas, Unified Government of Wyandotte County, Cerner and Ongoal) and sell Star bonds (by March 1st).

Listen to Robb talk and get the whole story...

I just happened to be out shopping today and was in the vicinity of the new stadium site. I stopped by to see if maybe they had started without telling us. They had not but I took a couple snapshots for reference. What timing!!!

This would be the northwest end of the stadium. You can see Arthur Bryants BBQ across the street. What sporting event in Kansas City does not have BBQ smell drifting across the stadium?

Looking across approximately midfield towards Kansas Speedway...
