Happy Festivus KC – Our Top Grievances for Sports in 2016

DECEMBER 2016Happy Festivus KC! Among all the celebrations each holiday season, this might be one of my favorites to recognize and celebrate. For those of you who don’t know what Festivus is, I’ve included a link here from the episode of “Seinfeld” that created this holiday.

One of this holiday’s traditions is the airing of grievances, in which you tell people all the ways they have disappointed you this year. While this year has had some great moments for Kansas City teams, there have been some disappointments.

To honor this tradition, here are the top five grievances about our local sports teams and players I would like to air on this day of Festivus (Just a note, I have nothing against these players/teams, they have just been disappointing this year). In the words of Frank Costanza, “I’ve got a lot of problems with you people! Now you’re going to hear about it!”

Alex Smith…Can he lead the Chiefs to the Promised Land?

OCTOBER 2015 – Does Alex Smith have what it takes? It’s typical for the media and the fans to go with the notion that in order for a team to make it to the Super Bowl, they need a solid quarterback who can lead the team and win the big games.

There is the offense, defense and special teams with 11 players coming together as one unit to provide the best opportunity to win.

Each member has a part to play; however, we all know the quarterback is in the spotlight each and every offensive snap.

Climbing out on a Twig: Chiefs will MISS the playoffs

AUGUST 2015 – I seem to have a better grasp of predictions for the Kansas City Royals than I do the Chiefs. I tend to miss the Royals’ won-loss record by one or two games. Don’t believe me? Check my right-on forecasts the past three years for the Royals.

For the second straight year, I have been dyslexic in my Chiefs’ preseason predictions. Three years ago I was on fire, but after predicting 4-12 and 7-9 the past two years, then I am considering going with a 2-14 mark this year and watch KC dominate the AFC West.
