Sunday before sunrise

Another early Sunday morning departure from Russell is imminent. I’m going back to Kansas City for a day at Buffalo Wild Wings of watching football and one big baseball game.

The NFL schedule is missing heavyweights today. The two teams who played in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seahawks and Broncos, have a bye. So do two of the three remaining 3-0 teams, the Bengals and Cardinals. The Chiefs don’t play until tomorrow night. Hmmm.

The Royals are playing for a chance at a one-game playoff for the American League Central division championship. They must defeat the White Sox and the Tigers must lose to the Twins for it to happen, but hey, it’s still in play. So are playoffs for the NL Central (Cardinals lose, Pirates win) and the second AL wild card (Athletics lose, Mariners win).

I’m resigned to the fact next Sunday I’ll be in Russell due to the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway. No way I’m fighting hotel rates that weekend. I’ll probably sneak over Monday to play The Pulse and then go to Smith Center the next day for the volleyball match there.

Time to jump in the shower and get rolling. Next blog post will be from you know where.
