Over the years I have become less and less engaged with major American sports. The industry is saturated and can simply consume time. I still like them. I am a KC Chiefs fan in professional football, but even last night’s amazing game (one in which I would have been heartbroken had the Chiefs lost, butContinue reading “Sportsball”
I watched the Super Bowl for only one reason on Sunday: My beloved Kansas City Chiefs were miraculously in it. Fifty year drought. No lie. This was a once in a lifetime event for me and I decided not to miss it.

It’s a frustrating time because Oklahoma State is in a losing streak at the wrong time. (For the record, I’m okay with that, since I’mContinue reading “Personal rights and egos”
In Minnesota we were held hostage by the thought of the Minnesota Vikings leaving, then we “got the deal done.” Whew. But it’s smoke and mirrors.

However, I have a request of the selection committee (even though I know this will go unheeded): Please do NOT seed KUContinue reading “I Love the Kansas Jayhawks, but…”
For the last border battle game, this one was a good one! My Jayhawks came from 19 down to beat Mizzou in OT 87-86.
