Elijah Lee is leading the Wildcats defense by example

NOVEMBER 2016 – When Elijah Lee arrived at Kansas State as a freshman two seasons ago, his goal was to just fit in. It’s amazing how leading the team in tackles can help a guy feel like he belongs.

“When I first got here I wasn’t sure of my abilities,” Lee said. “But after a hard summer and some big gains in the weight room, I gained more and more conference.

The World Series has ended and we are right smack dab in the middle of the NFL campaign. As many of us are still discouraged at the Royals’ .500 record and failure to make the postseason, but it really begins to shed light on how long it has been for the Kansas City Chiefs to appear in the Super Bowl.

Payroll may be trimmed, changes made to 2017 Royals

NOVEMBER 2017 – Is a payroll cut in order for the Royals? It’s been a great ride, but things are changing…

Kansas City fans have watched Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain and Alcides Escobar grow up before their eyes.

They’ve witnessed Wade Davis transform from a so-so starter to a dominant closer. They’ve viewed the maturation of Danny Duffy from inconsistency, sent to the bullpen to becoming the Royals best starter in 2016. They fell in love with the game-changing speed of spare outfielder Jarrod Dyson.

That gang will not be together much longer.

NOVEMBER 2016 – Daniel Sorensen at 6-2, 208 is wispy thin for an NFL linebacker.

Sorensen is really not fast enough to play safety in the NFL either. His 4.67 40-yard dash time prior to the 2014 draft was below average.

NOVEMBER 2016 – Tyreek Hill does just about everything fast.

He was the first to score a touchdown for the Kansas City Chiefs this year, helping them overcome the largest deficit in franchise history in the season-opening, overtime triumph over San Diego.

He is fast becoming a playmaking star.

“It’s just a playmaker play,” Hill said of the nine-yard TD reception,

Could Hosmer’s All Star Heroics Jinx the Cubs in the World Series?

jinx hosmer

Is the jinx on for the Cubs?

Before Game One-October 2016: Eric Hosmer’s stellar All Star Game performance helped guarantee that the American League would have home field advantage in the 2016 World Series.

Could home field advantage jinx the Cubs…or play into whether the Cubs win the series?

According to baseballreference.com, Cleveland and the Cubs are .500 in games they’ve played against each other since 1997, and in these stats, home field doesn’t seem to be much of a factor in wins or losses. BUT THIS IS THE WORLD SERIES!

It’s clear Hosmer’s MVP play in the All Star Game gives the Indians an advantage. For Cubs fans, we hate to see a proud moment for Hosmer and Royals fans dash the hopes for Cubs fans…or do we?

SEPTEMBER 2016 – Without a team of referees, the game wouldn’t exist.

While they score no goals and make no saves, they are essential to the success of every soccer player on the field.

At Sporting Lee’s Summit, the team of referees which take the field in every match make youth soccer enjoyable for their kids.

“I truly believe the generation of young people will change the world,” said Sporting LS referee assignor Art Shinabarger.

His belief is reflected throughout SLS’s administration, where the referee program is the single largest employer of teenagers in Lee’s Summit.

Youngsters earn their soccer stripes at Sporting Lee’s Summit

Sporting LS Stripes

AUGUST 2016An important part of developing a successful youth soccer program is helping the youngest players start out on the right foot. Sporting Kansas City began their fledgling program – Sporting Stripes – last fall, first with a pilot program in Roeland Park, then moving to The Soccer Lot in the Crossroads.

Sporting Lee’s Summit’s affiliation with Sporting KC created an opportunity to merge their popular Lee’s Summit Juniors program with the Sporting KC Stripes.

Royals’ rallies become essential to success

Royals rally

MAY 2016Perhaps you have heard the For King and Country song, “It’s Not Over Yet.” While the Australian brothers, John and Luke Smallbone, did not write the song about the Kansas City Royals, it should be added to the Kauffman Stadium playlist and become a staple when the Royals are behind after six innings.

They upbeat inspirational lyrics would send the crowd into a frenzy.
