                    Tonight as I sat on my couch flipping through the channels I came across a movie that gives me nothing but great memories, The Natural.   Many people will sit around and debate on what they consider ...

  • A Solution to a Problem Labeled, BCS!

    Posted November 16, 2012 by Joe Amyx

    So as the college football season is coming down to the wire I cannot help, but think that no matter the outcome once again there will be left a ton of doubt as to who truly “deserves” the shot at the title.  No matter how a season plays out these days the system that is put in plac...

  • A Royal Plea

    Posted October 23, 2012 by Joe Amyx

    The Kansas City Royals have been my ongoing frustration for many years now, 19 to be exact because that was the last year we had a decent team.  But every year, year after year they trick me in the off season into believing that maybe, just maybe this year will be different.  This year wil...

  • Grid Iron Audible—Defense in an Offensive Age

    Posted October 10, 2012 by Steve Massey

        Grid Iron Audible—Defense in an Offensive Age     For all the talk of the league belonging to the quarterback, for the notion that offense produces success, for the modern perception that three yards and a cloud of dust is an archaic adage, let’s look at th...

  • My Most Hated Statement in Sports

    Posted October 10, 2012 by Joe Amyx

    If you want to get under my skin and create an argument with me when it comes to sports there is no easier way to do it than to tell me that superstar athletes from the past could not, and would not compete with the athletes of today.  I hate this statement.  I hate this more than any othe...

  • Grid Iron Audible--Raising Lombardi

    Posted October 9, 2012 by Steve Massey

          Raising Lombardi     “You play to win the game.”    Every football fan knows that Herm Edwards repeatedly said these words in a now famous post-game press conference turned beer commercial, but is it true? Sometimes I wonder.   &n...

  • Chiefs Stumble, Fans Grumble!

    Posted October 9, 2012 by Steve Massey

      Sea of Red--Chiefs Stumble, Fans Grumble!   Being a Chiefs blogger in 2012 has been one of the most difficult tasks that I’ve ever taken on, and it’s not getting any easier. The Chiefs turned the ball over four times on Sunday, and let a very winnable game slip away whil...

  • Week 5 Pick Em Breakdown

    Posted October 9, 2012 by Joe Amyx

    Five weeks in to the NFL and wouldn’t you know there are surprises all over the place!  Week 5 started once again on Thursday night with a NFC West showdown between the Arizona Cardinals and the St Louis Rams.  Well I’m not sure what the NFL saw in making this a prime time game...

  • Why the Chiefs will not win, and no it’s not Matt Cassel

    Posted October 3, 2012 by Joe Amyx

    Growing up 40 miles west of Kansas City and the son of a sports fan you are almost forced to become a Chiefs fan.  Now don’t get me wrong going to the games in the 90s with my Dad was one of the most fun things a kid could ask for; the smell of barbeque, the crazy fans all decked out in r...

  • Week 4 Pick Em Breakdown

    Posted October 2, 2012 by Joe Amyx

    Oh what a difference a week makes!  Week 3 was the week of the upsets and week 4 seemed to go as chalk!  The week started out with a decent game Thursday that saw the one time browns beat the same old browns in the house that Poe built!  Then came Sunday and the early games provided s...
