Royals making us blue

The Boys In Blue are turning their fans blue with their sub .500 play this season. Gone is the euphoria of two straight World Series appearances. Returned is the dullness that marked being a Royals' fan for the previous couple of decades.

Titans of the sports

It is notable that certain schools seem to excel in certain sports. Kansas in basketball and at least in this era, Kansas State in football. I am thinking more on the high school level, however. For years, in the 1950s through the 1970s, the Russell Broncos dominated high school basketball, winning numerous state championships. The McPherson Bullpups have done the same in boys basketball and you can include St. John and Scott City in that mix.

Professional Basketball

Love it or leave it, the NBA playoffs are underway. In one of the few sports where most everybody makes the playoffs, the NBA has mastered the art of "milking" a second season out of fans and the television networks.

Hitting Singles

COLLEGE football is taken seriously in some places. Last week Ohio State held their "Spring Game." They set a new national record for a spring game with 100,189 fans showing up. Oh yes, those were fans who paid for a ticket to be there! That scene is repeated at Alabama, Florida State, Tennessee, Michigan and many other places. Meanwhile a few more than 1,200 showed up in Lawrence to watch the struggling Jayhawks. There was no admission charge. It hasn't been determined if those 1,200 were paid to be there! Kansas State holds their Spring Game ...

Moffet Stadium

At the Mike

For whatever reason the deadline to file your taxes this year has been moved back three days. Instead of April 15 it is April 18. Now I have seen this happen when the 15th would fall on a weekend, but a Friday? Well, the reason is April 15 this year is Emancipation Day. I guess that is a legal holiday in the DC. Maybe one of these days we can emancipate ourselves from Washington.
