Kansas City and St. Louis Have Simultaneous Championship Teams

February 4, 2020

This is the first time that both St. Louis and Kansas City, the two Missouri cities that house major North American sports league teams (as was the case concerning “Dorothy” when she was in “Oz,” the former is NOT in Kansas) have simultaneous league champions.

The NHL St. Louis Blues, baseball’s Washington Nationals and the NBA title holding Toronto Raptors have been joined by the Kansas City Chiefs, as current pro league champions.

Both St. Louis and Kansas City have but two professional teams.

Each has a major league baseball team and in fact, the Kansas Royals and St. Louis Cardinals met in the 1985 World Series.

Neither city has an NBA team while K.C. has a professional football team, the now champion Chiefs and St. Louis is the home of the current NHL champion Blues.

In winning the title, the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers, whose center, Ben Garland, then with the Denver Broncos, is pictured above.

Of course Judy Garland, portrayed by almost certain upcoming Academy Award winner, Renee Zellweger, in the film, “Judy,” had the iconic role of “Dorothy” in “The Wizard of Oz.”
