Happy town

Kansas City should be a very happy place tomorrow. The Royals won to avoid a sweep by Detroit and stay tied for an American League wild card playoff berth, and the Chiefs picked up their first victory of 2014 by dominating the Dolphins in Miami 34-15.

Tomorrow could be very different, at least for the Royals. They travel to Cleveland, where they first must play the bottom of the 10th inning from the August 31 game in Kansas City which was suspended when heavy rain made Kauffman Stadium’s surface unplayable. The Indians scored twice in the top of the 10th to take a 4-2 lead. After that gets done, there’s the regularly scheduled game. The Royals might find themselves hurting if they can’t win the regularly scheduled game, because I doubt they can score two runs with three out.

The afternoon NFL games are done. There are three remaining undefeated teams; Eagles, Bengals and Cardinals. That’s right the ARIZONA CARDINALS are 3-0 following a 23-14 victory over San Francisco at home. The Big Red holds a game lead over Seattle and two over San Francisco in the hyper competitive NFC West, where it’s going to take at least 12 wins to claim the division, and that may not be enough.

I’ve been at Buffalo Wild Wings since opening. I probably should have left a long time ago,, but I have been surprisingly productive sitting here while watching football and playing trivia. I’ve finished my two stories on Smith Center football and one on Smith Center volleyball, and I’ve started my column, which will be easy to write this week because of all that’s going on.

It’s been a pretty good day. Elizabeth Psenski worked from opening until 2:45, when she mercifully got to go home. She worked two double shifts the previous two nights. Brittany Davidson popped in for a few minutes, but I didn’t get her the Abita beer I bought her, but at least she’s here tomorrow. Brittany Mathenia-Tucker, Alex Mullinax and Tori Weber are all here right now. I probably should go, but then again, I would hate to leave them. Either way, it’s been good.

The weather is beautiful outside. I hope it holds up for Friday’s trip to Norton. I’m almost too afraid to look at the weather report.
