Sports Bio

Most memorable sports moment: Attended the 1988 sweet 16, and the parade in downtown Lawrence after the Jayhawks won it all.

Religiously follow the Jayhawks in everything (yes, even football)
Also love the Chiefs, Royals, and LSU Football.

KC Area Meet-up: I was going to email all of the SpoFites that I know are in the Kansas City area, but I found that a lot of you don't have email addresses in your profile. Anyhow, Tinman and I have been tossing around the idea of a meet-up, including possibly beer, barbecue, and a Royals game. Of course, all are welcome, even you St. Louis area Mizzou fans. I know brainofdtrain and monkeyhawkare in the area. Also BoKnows is in the St. Louis area, and it's only a four hour drive. My email is in my profile if anyone is interested.

John Daly disqualified at Bay Hill: One day after swing coach Butch Harmon fires him, Daly misses his tee time and is disqualified from Arnold Palmers Invitational. Said Harmon, "My whole goal for him was he's got to show me golf is the most important thing in his life," Harmon said. "And the most important thing in his life is getting drunk."

The Hoser's NFL Picks, Week One 2008

Fraze, you really think the Chiefs can score 17? I don't think the defense can pull that off, and the offense sure as hell ain't going to do it.

Didn't we go through this at the last second last year? I guess I'll never learn.

I love SpoFi. Where else can you coordinate a sports story with Kurt Vonnegut?

Why do you support who you do?

Growing up on a farm in Central Kansas, you don't have a lot of choices. I spent a lot of time listening to the Royals at night, with me, my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all in the same room. Great-grandad loved Amos Otis and Cookie Rojas. I never appreciated those evenings enough at the time, but now they are some of my favorite memories.

College-wise, it's an easy guess, considering my screen name and the fact that I now live in Lawrence. Jayhawks, baby. I fear that this year being a Jayhawk will pale in comparison to last season (how could it not?) I also pay attention to LSU, since I spent a lot of time in S.E. Louisiana for work in the past.

Love the Chiefs, too, even though it looks like they might rival the Dolphins in suckitude this season. Go away Carl Peterson!

The USA gold rush is on....

I could almost see your point till the last comment, Drood. That said, regardless of the country of origin, there will always be homerism in sports. It defines the nature of sports. If you want to brag on your team, by all means you have the right to post something. I agree with Sttel Town. If a post pisses you off, skip it.

Um...Tour De France...bicycles...pedaling? Ring any bells? I thought it was kind of clever. Exept for the fact that it might offend dyslexics.
