|Kansas City's own Mean Melin, Air Guitar World Champion|
St. Louis sure likes to talk smack on Kansas City's sports teams and entertainment options, but when it comes to air guitar, we may just have to concede defeat.
On August 9, our cross-state rival will host the national finals for U.S. Air Guitar, the official air-guitar association of the United States. After months of competing in roughly twenty qualifying rounds and semi-finals nationwide, the upper echelon of air talent will converge at the Midland in Kansas City to duke it out for a chance to represent the country at the Air Guitar World Championship in Finland. For die-hard air-heads, theatrically shredding on an invisible instrument to Slayer or the Darkness in front of legions of pumped-up fans is a dream come true, and St. Louis' qualifying event played a teensy part in that.
Wait, no -- St. Louis didn't do jack.More »
