Google Inc. awarded an experimental, ultra-high-speed network to Kansas City, Kan., on Wednesday, bypassing more than 1,100 other communities, including Baltimore, that applied for the pilot project in a kind of high-technology lottery. Last February, Google said it would choose a community in which to design and build a new fiber-optic network that would connect thousands of homes to the Internet. But not all hope is lost for Baltimore and other cities. Google officials indicated that Kansas City could be the first of several communities to receive Google Fiber.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The last time the Blast played the Kansas City Comets, its goalkeeper, Brett Phillips, had one of those memorable nights, giving up just seven points as he inspired his team to a 15-7 victory. Last night at Kemper Arena, Kansas City goalie Paolo Ceccarelli counter-punched. Ceccarelli held the Blast to one point fewer than Phillips as the Blast was forced to leave town a 17-6 loser. The loss left the Blast 12-16 for the season and 3-9 on the road. "We had mental breakdowns.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - For the Blast to earn a spot in the Major Indoor Soccer League playoffs, it was going to have to win a game on the road. The good news was that Baltimore had four games in which to do so, and it could still make the playoffs if the Harrisburg Heat lost. The bad news was the Blast had a 4-10 record away from 1st Mariner Arena this season. The Blast threw that poor record out last night, defeating the Kansas City Comets, 16-11, with a fourth-quarter scoring outburst that also avenged a 17-6 road loss in late February.

With one quick connection, Blast midfielder Paul Wright finding captain Lance Johnson going hard to goal, the middle-of-the-night scurry to the airport became more tolerable. Much more tolerable. After last night's 10-9 win from behind over the visiting Kansas City Comets, the Blast may not even need an airplane to get to Milwaukee this morning. On the night he became the Baltimore franchise's leader in games played, Johnson was also the hero, scoring the game-winner with 2:33 left to give the home team another win in front of 6,148 at Baltimore Arena.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There is a way to hold onto the ball for two-thirds of the game, move it about 500 yards, get your best player in the end zone four times and still nearly lose. Just ask the Kansas City Chiefs. At the end of their wild 35-28 victory yesterday over the depleted Seattle Seahawks, the Chiefs were feeling more lucky than good, more grateful than boastful. "That goes to show you what happens ... when you miss opportunities and turn the ball over in the wrong area of the field and give up big plays," Chiefs coach Herman Edwards said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - For a short course in the history of Kansas City's stockyards, stand in Jim Runyan's office in the Livestock Exchange building. On his walls hang vintage black-and-white photographs showing the great bawling herds, the cattle that made fortunes for this city in the 1900s and landed it a reputation as a cowtown. From his sixth-floor office windows, Runyan looks down on the red bricks that once provided stable footing for the 10,000 cattle that passed through the yards daily.

There is no question the AFC is the better conference in the NFL this year and little doubt the Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the conference. But should the Chiefs stumble, there is a cluster of teams waiting to steal Kansas City's AFC reservation in the Super Bowl, including the Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts. With seven weeks left, the unbeaten Chiefs have a two-game lead on the field for the No. 1 seed in the conference. It's unlikely, but not impossible, they could lose twice and surrender the top spot.

What else can go wrong? The Kansas City Royals already were at the bottom of the American League Central when they lost veteran shortstop Jay Bell and designated hitter Chili Davis to free agency. Now, it looks like they'll have to do without pitching ace Kevin Appier for most or all of the 1998 season.In other words, the Royals are the perfect first opponent for a team that is trying to extend last year's season-long stay at the top of the AL East.The Orioles always seem to draw the Royals in the first week of the season.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In a Kansas City Chiefs season filled with magical moments, none stands out more than Pete Stoyanovich's 54-yard field goal that beat the Denver Broncos and the expiring clock.That single, improbable play allowed the Chiefs to nip the Broncos, 24-22, that mid-November day and eventually reel in the AFC West championship. Otherwise, the Chiefs would be packing for a trip this weekend to Mile High Stadium.Stoyanovich's kick instead gave the Chiefs the comfort of playing the Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium in Sunday's AFC second-round playoff game.
