Joseph Landis

Staff Writer

Joe is a Kansas City boy through and through, though born in "God's Country" just east of KC. Perhaps that is why he has lived in St. Louis the past five years spreading dissent and harassing the locals about how they don't understand the pain of being a sports fan. Since the Royals won a World Series three months into his life, the never ending search for another winner has yielded little save a Wizards MLS Cup, when no one was watching. I write about Sporting KC here and you'll find me occasionally around SBNation making comments under my real name and then regretting it.
