Monday, get here!

Another forgettable Sunday. I’m home in Russell due to the ridiculous crowds which have gathered in every Kansas City sports bar due to the NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway, the Chiefs game in San Francisco which is going on now, and the Royals playoff game vs. the Angels which starts at 6:30.

My mother cooked pasta, but I couldn’t enjoy it having to look across the table at the woman who is voting for the far left regressive candidates in Kansas’ elections next month. And i couldn’t enjoy it knowing my father won’t get DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket, severely limiting my viewing options.

UPDATE, 11 p.m.: Joey Logano won the NASCAR race. YUCK. He drives a Ford. I don’t like Ford. I’m a Chevy and GM man. Chiefs lost 22-17 to the 49ers. Meh. Royals beat the Angels 8-3 to win the ALDS in three straight games and advance to face the Orioles in the ALCS starting Friday in Baltimore.

The good news: Monday is here in one hour. Can’t come soon enough.
