Has been around Kansas City for quite awhile they do a lot of cool things to enhance the quality of life and economic success of Kansas City through sport and very excited to have Dave Borchardt on the show today day welcome to the show via phone. The Democrat. So Dave and I go way back with such talk some background here Davey used to work at sporting TCU and it was a Kansas City Wizards. Back in the old days and he nine posted eight. Very successful. Radio show. The Tennessee football shows that they wouldn't. We agree get big corporate announcement due legend and I heard then yeah I'd you know I will play well I'll always used to cut kicker by the typical. And it's dead we had a great show Dave has a history of of me is so it's it's it's gonna cool to be interviewing him today. Today I talked to us about your background there you bugged in Kansas City for many years and I worked a lot of really cool organization tells about yourself. Yeah definitely I feel like is that. Like on kit city and in the dye her sports fan feel like I've been really lucky to have the current pet so far and started it exports three Hewitt and equitable is Sports Radio fifteenth and is an intern in 1999 and what they're full time after I graduated from the due in May 2000. Kind of stirred up ground on the board and produced in the different shows. Started producing Jason whitlock neighborhood and right now technology which I'm getting up at 345 every day which was in grad thing they want to the prime time show with Belmont and great bowl and the Gramm. I would be able to host the evening's show as well as the. How did you do that I didn't know that seed in the evening in the Sunday morning show. Yeah but did that in that also posted it's you spoke game which Jack Gary dramatically scaled so that was pretty fun you know Jack you're one of the more. Originated comic theater security sports history. Great guy he actually when I was a legislator he was lived in my district so. Always I always like seeing him at the polling places and he's always been a these guys and get dude so I did and so we kind of met after that when you're at sporting as the public relations manager be a lot of great experience he kind of kept. Kind of been connected on the radio senior Kansas City even after you. Post reported in were producer. Yes I'm like you that I went from eight and two at. At that time the wizard and was there through their whole. Landing in the new stadium construction in the stadium opening so that was really wanna pilots in my career for sure getting to see what it was like when the team with the wizards and the other might be two or 3000 people with the game and now they've sold out. A hundred plus games in a row and have the best stadium in the league and it's just really cool to see where the team has gone up like you set it up. That we keep my foot in the door with the sporting and what they pan out they'll post the outpost in radio show up for sporting Casey. And evaluate them after every game. Yes so if you ever wanna look in the final whistle you cannot give me your take on the. I I also run rumor fondly we used to be the the bill play by play announcer on the TV broadcasts. Yeah I overplayed here the early in the near the little 03. Now I want him and decided to upgrade with the this. They've opened David running tell William did a great job and I think we're really with a good fit for the team with the new. Stadium in the new Brandon. You can go with the English accent anytime you can have English accent the soccer they can get so. Pat pat pat. You're there you're doing the show needed to show you steal the show from sporting car. Yeah so for the home games we will do the post game show from an by the members club. It's no one's been to the the game about it. Leave the cauldron is that creepy imperfection in the playing and bang the drums all the game and when the team win they bring in the songs in the drawn into the members club so you really heard it here during the show but it makes for really good atmosphere. Yet does it Boortz is our guest she's with the tc sports commission now also azalea. This stuff was sporting TC on the on the broadcast. Dave. OK so what would votes a cycle that's so you've been around them on us now for Colorado what are your what's your take on it. As far as native American sports sleek. You know it's funny I would say other than the TV ratings which I think they're still. Not worthy of delete want them to be I think undergone TV ratings the league it's just really hitting on all cylinders I think you look at these new teams that come in and they have great stadiums they sell out every single game. And I think almost everything the league is doing is working really well there won't be one of the leaders in terms of world soccer when it comes to technological innovations. I think we know that he could can be a little bit. Too much old school in my opinion then. You know not necessarily willing to take chances are tweak things that you look at adolescent male rolled out a replay last year which you know it it's I think one thing that maybe frustrates American sports banned. But the soccer fans love it's it's it's tough to score sometimes in soccer game so. If there's a play that directly lead to a goal at that at the crucial play they can directly impact who wins who loses and who make the play out so. Now than MLS has replay. They can find out if a player should have been a penalty kick worked with the diet or should have been hit a ball or that the red card like these huge plays that really impact the game more than any other sport it makes you wonder to play some soccer can determine the outcome of the game so the fact that I'm allowed to want to take chances. And do the replay I think it's really cool and I'll get that every team come an end with great attendance I don't know if you saw the Atlanta stadium this year but they were selling out that beautiful new dome they have an Atlanta. You know they would end ME that the economy giving don't they have done they're they were selling it out that seven new ammo to penetrate the per game I think it was sixty some thousand so every team to come then just out all the momentum and that they get the number one league. It in my left in the NBA from everything I've read seem like they're the top two teams. In American sports in terms of millennial fans I think when you look at who's going to be the next generation of fans certainly can't city younger people don't like baseball collect achieved. The man people are really flock to the NBA and MLS. India likes ancient Seawright. More teams are permanent. Yep for sure so there as a team just awarded the national recently. Though you have yet been and that the other big news and MLS is the Columbus team looks like it's likely to move to Austin which would be the first. You know big time professional sports team and Austin which is a really fun market fell. And that they didn't wanna be MLS original thing Columbus but they've been struggling for awhile in terms of attendance and sponsorship money at merchandise sales. And I think even though that it's bad news for her court band I think and what an odd thing could be a really good thank well. It could be it's a fun city that's for sure and there's a lot of there's lot of lawyer kneels down there that's that they and it's a growing city so. What's really cool what I feel bad for the people Columbus of that happens you know it's a pretty big city as well which people don't think about I mean it's. Got a similar kind of a demographic is Austin I mean state Capitol College the college sound. Couple million people. Very cool retarded Dave Borchardt you now is the with the act Casey sports commission sees the Kansas City sports commission he's a director events Dave. Four get to what's BS sports commission does. You also got to stay over at Time Warner Cable you you kind of worked in the corporal for over six years time flies men. Yeah it's funny I was if that was what they -- and Alex was sporting and they cut to the point where even know my job at sporting KC it was you know 62 weeks for nine months out of the year with two little kid that was just it was an attempted to me to go for the I didn't week Monday or Friday and that we had a lot of fun at Time Warner Cable kind of good PR. Crisis management and also a lot of community events trying to build up goodwill in the community itself I loved my time there for sure it would definitely. More of a Monday to Friday job which was nice for the family life that you know they went through merger recently what you know your world with Charter Communications and the arrest commuter relocate to Milwaukee and as a -- -- idiot that was kind of a no go with me so it started looking for. Other jobs your round that I know even reached out to you first hospital and the minute I promised the sports commission in the combined might do well I guess my three laps really which could be sports and and events and then the city Kansas City so I had just really lucky that it all worked out and I know my blog this morning its owners but they recovered or have ever had not really me that it you know attempt to work your hometown and try to improve your city through sports which is not an impassioned about it didn't go out and plan and execute these on community event that it's just a dream job. I'm Dave orchard is with us Dave. Give us an overview of of the TSE's sports machine we actually had on Cathy Nelson here. Gosh few years ago so it's been awhile since we really talked about I know. It's growing and no got a couple minutes left in the first sector this segment with you. But also bit about it its web site has worked PC dot org if you wanna check it out. Yet I think for people that tonight about it certainly check out the web site like cases that bit. Weren't nonprofit organization and our mission is making kits it is better to sports so if there's something big in Kansas City. That sports related there's a pretty good chance the sport conditional at some sort of role and you know we they wanted to things were really well known for his we've bid to bring event can't city to help with economic impact and help with visibility for Kansas City on regional national and international level so things like the big twelve basketball tournament we've bid to bring to can't city the NCAA volleyball final four it was just your last month and then we brought to town also they US Figure Skating Championships that was here last January that was a big successful event of Brent Sutter got some that we bring to count. Took things like working not a World Cup bid right now should be obviously the biggest event we could ever bring to town. And I think that's probably the thing the public would know. But at the sports commission that's for doing things like apple will have a group internally called went for Casey and Merrill back getting females and young ladies in the sports at a young age to better their life. Show the benefits of sports in terms of self confident teamwork health and wellness things like that they do an all girl Summers summer camp each year they have the big women's sports awards celebration lunch and each year the Mike and focuses primarily on local events though trying to do a lot of things to better the community we have annual sports awards banquet that's going to be in the 44 year coming up in June celebrated their best sports stories to the year each you're Kansas City and we have several endurance events might he manages including the incident marathon which is there.

Of the city for in a fun event like big twelve tournament NCAA volleyball championships conducted here we have the women's division one NCAA passed or regional which would be a big part in the city to show him support if we can do that maybe we can get something like though women's final four Sunday. Nobody really cool there's lot of ways to get involved in the sports commission just go to sport TCI and organ. They have internship programs as well lies volunteer opportunities as well up on the web site. Davie mentioned going after things that's very competitive these days in any mention the World Cup. If the US is the US does and have yet but it's looking generator to get awarded that. So what is the capital or it yet and it is the joint bid between the US Mexico and Canada Toby pre country code staying with the US posting you know 80% or so of the game but I could become like. When he died in the US six in Mexico those sixty can't or something like that pretty cool. QB Colin you know I don't know about you that's kind of the biggest sporting event I've never been to new I would actually had a student exchange in Germany when the US goes to the World Cup back in the mid ninety's and instead but I mean it's just imagine the Super Bowl. Times and is is the only way to describe that it would be you know more than a billion dollars of economic impact for each city the cut to host the games and give the city being so fed up with the great facility sporting Casey had in the navy US training and development center that opening Kansas City, Kansas I mean we can post game at arrowhead we can potentially also host teams in terms of training camp at sporting Parker the US training center or wherever that might be so. It would be so excited. I'm anywhere you are by then hopefully it right with the young gun and then what they have wasted extended streetcar ride then maybe some other forms of transportation with autonomous cars and flying flying you hers and he'll be amazing. Elect us and you mentioned shouldn't that. If you influx of international travelers in the newspaper that event you'd have people from every corner of the globe come again. And like it they can city's great now and how much greater would be at eight years when we have hopefully those that we 26 World Cup than a like that brand new airport. More big great hotels the street car will be longer and better at that point though again the news keeps getting better and better every year to be great if we could showcase at the world didn't end of the world. Yeah no word one of the things you're involved with David to showcase in the cities we can't seem marathon though you have. Become an avid runner in your spare time with between family life and work life. Also Thabeet is that's a very competitive industry. A lot of cities are really marketing themselves. With their marathons and I've I've been since I've been running I've run a couple marathons it's. It's a really cool tourism destination true opinion Doocy new cities and usually it's it's it's tough because people wanna go to like. The under the deal the really big cities were kind of more the scenic routes tire Harvey guys being able stay competitive with that in Kansas City. On if they're not the only one that with a bottle can the American I know you finished the half marathon last year I saw you yes sprint downhill. You know. Looking great dealing you well I didn't wanna they that it. But yeah no I mean we we look at this as if the bigotry to get city in terms of participation numbers and though. Like him on board about a year and a half ago one of my primary goals. I get punishment that you want my other job be it race director for the for America on and someone at the Potomac boxes we need to take this race the third biggest recent and we need to really. Grow this and to be and one of the biggest test nation races in the midwest we know we have this great city Kansas City when he used this race. Really celebrate all things can't cities so you know for example last year we took a pretty great health and fitness expo which is free and open the public and we knew that the Union Station that just this psychotic in city venue are your word design that have been so come back from an open back and then it and you know pointed Kansas City in the state of Missouri so the shirt a work in the country kinda you gotta. Merit on the call that at least the spelled out in the design so that was complete Patrick in the course really try to hit all the cool way to mark that spot in Kansas City, Missouri to run it past. Sprint banner and city hall and eighteenth and vine and the Nelson Atkins in the plaza at Westport and then really fast doubt he'll finish with this great view of the Kansas City skyline. A reading pads with the world or won them. Memorial on your lap so I just really trying to stress alternate in the city with this race I think it kind of serve two purposes one hopefully you're really inspires all the local runners to feel like hey that's my hometown race the one I can't miss them like you said for these people that are looking early in case an idea you know you this is a great chance to see a great city a candidate that's running tours in the city Missouri and the commanding. Crowd gives to the doctor bucket list and you know most people I think climate in the city a lot more than they expected and we hear the stereo typed from people that flight but I would sometimes. You know where's the cows were the we'd all that stuff and did that he's got a great video I think everybody here bid their lives here knows it and I think they can't spread to get people from out of town to run the race and then you know learn more about what a great city you have. Indy guys get a lot of feedback from for people who do come into on this positive. Yeah I think people love to race it's funny though I think knowing here he realized that it. It's the hilly city I think people in some ways they predict how many kids they could be public flap but it's a really hilly course so it's not an easy course but we'd make it really scenic generally pretty coerced but he. People in general like the rays the weather's normally pretty good. I think they can definitely get the sense broke camp that he pride that we have to operate the one thing that I've still pushing at the debt outlook to get more people in the general public ball this year is Mike you mentioned he can that we come out of volunteer but I -- to get more spectators out a longer course and look at these two great sports without a degree tailgating city. You know you can either being can be viewed by the can see America like it does look out some street where you can make a big party have it so I think hurt people you know live and number I live in on the plaza in Westport you know come out and have a guilty party with your neighbors make the most is make what he buried an early upfront what that that's that's something I saw at Twin Cities last year is that like 300000 spectators and and everyone comes out and compete against each other to have the biggest neighborhood York party they have. How passive and it's like it took a carnival atmosphere it's crazy so that's how long term goals were in the city with such a great city at leopard at the literally come out and at times spectators were the marathon. To be really cool I've done a couple of to Saint George which is well a scenic one in the mountains and you thought I've done on. Good Ole noises is there's a lot of spectators as well obviously in a row scenic course and his city have done that half and it continued to look for more opportunities to go to new cities in the senior thing so congrats all you do with the FTSE marathon day we have a minute left on the the show today. What have you on again at some point maybe down the road to talk about some news may be fast and exciting are coming up. We had a minute left but zoo what do you think about losing basketball football right now and you've been diehard fan and I'm hoping that your talking Holmes. Absolutely the most pushing ms. do here is much I can and I can speed though a lot of Medusa supporters irritable the most athletic Josh I believe in obviously it was a huge factor. But still overall very successful season and a great comeback season from his seat that started out so poorly in a basketball it looks like the team will be pretty well pretty good if they can get Michael quarterback it could even get special teams in the Dean Baker ran guy I think whenever the print to the tournament without Michael order I think it becomes back. Then maybe they can make a run to the sweet sixteen or something like that but I think that the Nicklaus and certainly much better to where they've been which is pleasant surprise because the last couple years were not pretty. No was not it was not as tough being in the Z fans I know that we both have. So the best sporting maintain the city history was the Missouri Kansas football game the border war. At arrowhead the first ever won at arrowhead which means you want to become number one in the country go down in history as the best sporting event in Kansas City until we get a World Cup right if. Without all of that on the navy base you know my organizational that we got a plan that a key security basketball gave a few weeks ago and oh look that up until.
