The Path

Things aren’t always as you plan. The NCAA Baseball Tournament’s Manhattan regional has given me the welcome excuse to spend a weekend in the promised land. Complete with crashing in the dorm’s guest housing, as though it was the late 90s all over again. Today I took a walk through campus. Not a quick walk with a specific destination, but… Read more →


If you’re reading this you probably know that I’m the co-host of The Salute, a fan podcast1 about K-State sports2 on  We don’t do it for money, or really any other reason than to amuse ourselves, but Cory and I thought we could try and do it for something just a bit more, at least this once… so we’ve decided… Read more →

Passion vs. Bias

Last week I was asked a question. It was a fair question about an issue that had come up in conversation.

I ♥ KC

We all know who Chris Sullentrop is, right?  Oh, no?  Well, he’s just some jackass that grew up in KC but moved to NYC for “a bigger stage and a bigger paycheck.”  And that’s fine.  Kansas City isn’t New York City or Chicago or LA.  It doesn’t give the same opportunities, and it doesn’t have all the same sports teams (Though… Read more →

I ♥ NY!

It’s well known that when it comes to sports I’m a Chicago guy.  I never thought I’d start a post with “I Love New York,” but for tonight I do.  New York has passed a law and now will become the 6th state to recognize equality in marriage for everyone. I’ve spent most of my life living in a dark… Read more →
