At the Mike

October is one of my favorite months. High school football is in full gear and each game matters. The World Series is here and for the last two years for Kansans that means Royal Fever is in high gear. As a KU fan, basketball practice is underway with Late Night in the Phog so I can forget about the Jayhawks football season.

Do we need to know this?

The newspaper headlines shout "Odom, ex- NBA star, looking stronger." The national news gives us constant updates on the condition of Lamar Odom. That he is alert and improving. This is the guy, somewhat famous because he is an NBA basketball player, that was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel last week, strung out on alcohol and drugs. I'm on a "need to know" basis here and I don't NEED to know this. I don't WANT to know this. Do we really care? I sure don't!

No Huddle--Passing Out Of The Shotgun

In the early stages of Rock and Roll there was a great by the name of Chuck Berry. One of his hits was a song titled, "Johnny B. Goode". The chorus went like this: Go,,,Gogo...Johnny Gogo...Johnny B. Goode. Well, Johnny be good Wednesday evening as Kansas City's high-dollar mid-summer pitching acquisition finally paid dividends as Johnny Cueto pitched eight great innings, minus one bad pitch for a home run, and propelled the Royals into the AL Championship Series.

Predictions

While you are still guffawing about my prediction that Great Bend would beat Dodge City 27-24, remember that "no man is a prophet in his own country". So, you ask, "Am I from Mars?" The 51-7 win that Dodge City hung on Great Bend is only a bump in the road for this pompous prognosticator!

At the Mike: Post season baseball is upon us

Does anyone else think the Kansas City Royals just got better for the playoffs with Greg Holland getting hurt? Wade Davis has been the most dominate relief pitcher in baseball the past two seasons. Davis taking over the ninth inning is a good thing. The only question is whether the Royals 7th and 8th innings can stay solid.

There is a notable Country song that was recorded by numerous artists including Ray Price, Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam that includes the lyrics, "I've got heartaches by the number, troubles by the score." It's hard to imagine any major college football program that has more troubles than Kansas but there just might be……………………………and the Jayhawks play them this Saturday. Rutgers!
