Best of the rest

We're smack dab in the middle of the forty-some Bowl games of this holiday season. Time to take stock of the "Best of what's left". First though, I would like to make note of the national playoff system that is going on in the NCAA's Football Championship Subdivision. You know, those are the schools that provide the early-season non-conference games for our "Big Boys".

Letters to Santa: Sports edition

Dear Santa, You probably remember that I wrote to you last year and asked for a return to the World Series for our KC Royals. Boy, did you and Rudolph deliver! I will never doubt you again! Yes Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus! A World Series Championship over those snobbish easterners from New York. Am I being too selfish to ask for a repeat this next year? Three straight appearances in the World Series would be sweet even WITHOUT Johnny Cueto!

Slicing and dicing the bowls

The NCAA, exhibiting their great wisdom, has now given us 40 bowl games, plus the National Championship. 41 more football games. Still, we cannot have a true national playoff in Big Boy football in the collegiate sport. That's because "we must look out for the interests of the college student/athlete, not make too many demands on their time." 41 Bowl games does that?

While looking for an egg under the Turkey that somehow escaped Thanksgiving dinner, I found a ... BASKETBALL! While we've all been busy with football and the Thanksgiving holiday the basketball season has exploded upon us. The college season is well underway and, this week, our high school teams tip it off.
