The National Football League kicked off its' 2017 season a week ago Thursday with a marquee matchup: Kansas City at New England. The team that everyone loves to hate, the Patriots, tangling with the darlings of the Midwest, the Chiefs. Yes, the Patriots have become the modern day Yankees of years gone by.

Since I am batting 1000 on my predictions made about the past, I will venture a few predictions about this upcoming Big 12 football season.

Speaking of spitting, who cleans those artificial turfs and those dugouts after those baseball games? I mean, HOLY SALIVA! This is as epidemic as the Great Flood! Noah , where's that boat? Do they call SERVICEMASTER or STANLEY STEEMER? Who wants to slide into home plate after all of that expectorating? Call Heloise. Maybe she's got a tip or two!
