Three things I love are skylines, statues, and sports. This picture captures these loves all at once. This statue is called "The Scout", and he overlooks the skyline of Kansas City. In the very brief time that Kansas City had an NHL team, this statue was used as their logo.
The Power and Light District
It is located in the heart of downtown Kansas City. This area at night is full of bars, clubs, and dancing. However if there is a large sporting event going on it becomes the biggest watch party around. Pictured is a scene from the Big XII basketball tournament in 2017.

Sports are a great vehicle to show state pride. This guy embodied that sentiment in Lincoln, NE. There was no doubt he was from Maryland.
Home to the Kansas City Chiefs. It shares an enormous parking lot with Kauffman Stadium (home of the KC Royals). The size of the parking lot mixed with the BBQ traditions of Kansas City make this one of the best tailgating spots in America.

Tailgating at Arrowhead Stadium
This picture sums up why tailgating is such a big deal to us and countless others around the country. This is a family and friends tailgate at a KC Chiefs game. Part of the reason this picture sums up tailgating so well is there are people in the picture that nobody knows.

Neva River Side - St. Petersburg, Russia
Because St. Petersburg is such a naval city with humongous water traffic almost all of the huge bridges are raised every night to allow bigger ships pass through the city. Watching the bridges being drawn is considered to be a very romantic ritual that the locals often indulge in. Interestingly, it can be very hard to get home after the bridges are up.
