Toy Story 3 on Ice at Sprint Center This Weekend

Woody, Buzz, and all their friends are appearing at the Sprint Center this weekend. Toy Story 3 on Ice opened Wednesday night and continues through Sunday with 2 shows each day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Good tickets are still available at Ticketmaster, or as I suggest, avoid the fees and go to the Sprint Center box office.

I attended Thursday night's show with my four year old daughter. Luckily, the crowd was not too large - getting concessions and finding our seats was a breeze. Also, there was no line for the men's restroom like there was at the women's - no surprise at a children's event. I was surprised to notice that beer was served during a kid's show, although as old and grouchy as I am it probably would have improved my mood. I ordered a $4 bottled water at the concession stand and was told I could not have the cap!?! Apparently a water bottle cap can be used as a weapon - Of course the three year old sitting in front of me had a 2-foot long plastic sword that flew towards my face every 3 minutes, and that was OK.

Anyway, as far as the show goes, it was actually quite good. The scenes were short and varied enough to keep a small child's attention for the nearly 2-hour (including intermission) show. My daughter was excited every time a new character appeared on the ice - many even dropped in from overhead. Some of the highlights include the Army men number near the beginning of the program, and my daughter REALLY liked the Barbies.

The kids really seemed to enjoy the show , and that's what's important anyway. The tickets are reasonably priced, and if you can stomach the ludicrously priced food and toys ($22 for a Buzz Lightyear Spinning toy) - or you can avoid buying any of these items - I recommend taking your little one to Toy Story 3 on Ice.

NBA Comes to Kansas City Tonight

Kansas City will be an NBA town for one night only, as the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder square off in a preseason contest. The event is sold out with the game starting at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 5:30 when players will begin warming up. Before the game, H&R Block will be hosting a block party in which fans can win last-minute tickets. The party is free.

Lebron James is always a must-see attraction, but even more so now that he stabbed Cleveland in the back and formed a superteam in Miami with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. Love him or hate him, James always puts on a show, and tonight should be no different.

Not only does this game feature the NBA's new possible dynasty, but it also features a team that Kansas City almost had. When moving from Seattle, many thought the Sonics would move to Kansas City. Instead, the Sprint Center was not built fast enough, and Oklahoma City got a talented young team with future MVP Kevin Durant. Kansas City fans can watch both the most hyped team in recent history compete with a talented young team that should have been its own. At the very least, it should be a good game.
