Holds It...Holds It...Holds It!
Someone attempted to bribe me.
That person should have known that Happy In Bag's principles are not purchased as easily as a bag of cheeseburgers at Winstead’s. I will continue to retain the integrity of the Happy In Bag blog on behalf of all six of my readers.
I know a handful of people involved in what’s officially termed the "Johnson County Youth Recreational Soccer Park" proposal. And I will not endorse either side of that $75 million dollar bond issue on the November ballot in this forum.
I will suggest, however, that the initiative is in trouble. While I haven’t seen an official poll, I take great stock in the handmade signs mocking the soccer plan that are popping up with increasing frequency. Additionally, the recent shenanigans related to the Jackson County sports complex only increase the perception that the professional sports franchises, along with the political community, are taking unfair advantage of area sports fans.
(And yes, the title of this post is a reference to the best Simpsons episode ever.)
