Stand For Defense of Constitution

From a post by Nancy: Well… Can’t speak for all Americans, but sometimes I get peeved and as an American that loves my freedoms and ability to choose my actions and beliefs… Demanding and legislating that everyone must stand for the Anthem is the WRONG way to go. Should proud citizens of the USA show […]

NFL, NASCAR and America

So the Divisionaries continue to divide… It’s true that NASCAR has only had 4 black drivers in its history, notably one being a black woman. Yet, the popularity of the sport fades in the light of Football. Where 64% of Americans claim to be fans. Break that down to 73% of men and 55% of […]

Kansas City City Market, Beignet, and Moody Football Fans

We invested a day at the Kansas City City Market.  Today, in fact.  A Sunday and the Chiefs are playing – but we have a DVR and are recording the game.  We are at the market to meet family and are hoping that we do not inadvertently hear the score of the game.  We did […]

Chief’s Football Analysis by PEG

Well….I must comment on the KC Chiefs victory last night. Those of you who know me well….after being a lifetime fan, who remembers watching the Chiefs Win the Super Bowl in 1970, know the Chiefs lost my unconditional love after they lost 1998 AFC Divisional Home Game (13-3, home field advantage, 1st round bye) to […]

The Absurdy Of Private Humor

My friend has a girlfriend – she lives in another State.  I assumed that refers to geography rather than a mindset.  He told me that he called her and they talked for two hours.  He called the next day and she reported that she is running out of minutes so she cannot talk again until […]

Something is Terribly Wrong in Youth Football

He was ‘jacked up’, got his bell rung, he was clocked.  He took it like a man.  This is real man sport.  Only a real man could take a hit like that.  Have you ever heard any of those sort of comments regarding football?  Have you ever used those terms yourself.  I have.  And I […]

Struggling with winter blues, 1-15-08

Son, I am struggling with the winter blues. Generally I enjoy the changing of the seasons. My perennial flower gardens are one of the great joys of my life – I know spring has arrived when the Hostas first peek out from under the warm blanket of mulch. Summer brings grandchildren baseball games, grilled hamburgers, […]

Jack Del Rio and mechanized Belichick

Son, History is being made in the NFL.  The game tonight, Saturday, January 12, will be a milestone.  The New England Patriots have a perfect season, that is to say that they have not lost a game.  But tonight they are facing Jack Del Rio.  He is the coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Del Rio […]

New England Patriots – love or hate

Son, The New England Patriots have completed the regular season with a perfect 16 – 0 record. Congratulations. But like many things in life – people have an emotional response. Football is a sport that requires talent on the field and emotion in the stadium. My emotions say, please don’t win it all. The only […]

Tigers Tony Temple – Cotton Bowl records

Son, The Cotton Bowl was pretty exciting – if one happens to be a Mizzou Fan.  Tony Temple broke the big records.  281 yards rushing to break a fifty year old record, four rushing touchdowns to break the same fifty year old record. Tony Temple is from Kansas City.  Tony Temple played for Rockhurst High […]

Tiger Attack

Son, Many of us in Missouri are disappointed that Mizzou is not in a BCS Bowl Game.  The Tigers are in the Cotton Bowl – playing the number 25 ranked Arkansas Razorbacks.  And they are having a great day.  The game is presently late in the third quarter and Mizzou is ahead 28 to 7. […]

Cronyism – It Never Works

Son, Good Old Boys, buddies, cronies, buds – terms of endearment. Harry Truman had a bunch of cronies. He gave some of them jobs in the White House. Not important jobs, just a paycheck to hang around and play poker at night. The important jobs of Vice President, Secretary of State, and Secretary of Defense […]
