Still going at B-Dubs
It’s 7:30 p.m., I’m still at Buffalo Wild Wings, and so is Brittany Mathenia-Tucker, who has been serving me today. She now has a very large group on the opposite side of the bar area. I’ve been very patient today, knowing she’s been swamped.
I brought two slices of red velvet cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factor for Lisa Toebben, but she isn’t working today. And this time, I went to The Cheesecake Factory at the Country Club Plaza, where parking is nearly impossible. I could have gone to Overland Park since i had time, but I figured I would save a little gas and try the other one. Not again. I’ll stick to what I know next time. Besides, I can keep my tax money in Kansas.
I have not eaten much today; only a chicken sandwich and fries. I am not eating wings because I don’t know if I can handle them. I’ve still got to check in at the Courtyard Briarcliff, but that won’t be a big deal.
I wish Lisa would show up. Oh well. If not, Brittany gets one slice, and the other goes to whomever shows up tomorrow, whether it be Brittany Davidson or Liz.
The trivia trio of Athena, Tusken and Zesto showed up a few minutes ago, and we’re having a good one going now. I’ve fallen behind, but oh well. I’ve had enough success today, including a 3-0 sweep of Rondo and Dig Dug. If Buzztime brings back its Smartest Bar competition for 2015, I’m recruiting everyone I mentioned, plus Larry (MIZZOU) and a couple of others to form a team. Tusken beat me out by a 239 points. Nice work.
The Arizona Cardinals are 2-0 after a 25-14 victory at the Meadowlands vs. the Giants. The Cards were forced to play backup quarterback Drew Stanton in place of an injured Carson Palmer. Stanton wasn’t flashy, but he did not turn the ball over. Arizona’s winning score came on a 71-yard punt return by Ted Ginn Jr. in the fourth quarter. Arizona will probably end the night sharing first place in the NFC West with the 49ers, because I don’t expect Chicago to give San Francisco much of a game in the first regular season game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.
The Chiefs were not as fortunate. They gave the Broncos a better game than most expected, but lost 24-17 to fall to 0-2. Kansas City has company at the bottom of the AFC West, as Oakland lost again, this time to Houston.
Also 0-2: the Saints. I am shocked. I thought New Orleans would dispatch Atlanta and Cleveland in the first two weeks and go into their home opener vs. Minnesota on their way to the NFC South title. Instead, Carolina is 2-0, and the Sainta are tied with Tampa Bay for the bottom of the “Dirty South”. Ouch.
I’m only going to be able to visit Buffalo Wild Wings tomorrow before going back to Russell. I have volleyball Tuesday and Thursday, and football Friday. I should be able to get back to KC later Saturday.
