About the Author

Bill Grigsby is arguably the most recognizable public figure in Kansas City. He is the quintessential master of ceremonies for innumerable events, the color commentator for the Kansas City Chiefs, a spokesman for numerous businesses, and nonpareil optimist for everyone. He and his wife Fran reside in Parkville, Missouri, and have lived in the Kansas City area for more than 50 years, having raised five successful children: Jim, Paul, Ann, Jane, and Bill. His pronunciation of "beautiful" has become his homespun trademark over the last couple of decades, whether selling cars or the Chiefs. It is no gimmick, either, in the practice or pronunciation. "Hey, it's a beauuutiful day and a beauuutiful life!" he exclaims.
