Barspotting: No, Harpo’s Is Not Owned By Oprah

Out in front of Harpo's

When: Saturday, October 6th, 2007

Where: Harpo’s, 4109 Pennsylvania, Kansas City, MO 64111

Time: Maybe 7pm, not sure the Purple Yeti will actually make it. Going over to a friend’s house for the KU vs. K-State game. Krizzou’s looking for pig butt in Columbia.


  • 11:00 AM Kansas at #24 Kansas St
  • 2:30 PM #19 Texas vs. #10 Oklahoma (Dallas, TX)
  • 5:00 PM #15 Virginia Tech at #22 Clemson
  • 7:00 PM #9 Florida at #1 LSU
  • 7:00 PM #20 Cincinatti at #21 Rutgers
  • 7:00 PM #4 Ohio St at #23 Purdue
  • 8:15 PM #21 Nebraska at #17 Missouri

Notes: Hapro’s is a pretty hopping place at night when the beautiful people are out. They have a huge patio and some live music but did you know that they actually show some sports? The Purple Yeti may make an appearance. At the very least, I’ll leave a footprint for plaster casing.

    Actually, it’s baby back ribs this Saturday. Speaking of which, maybe I’ll hunt down that freaky giant husker mascot. You know the one that looks like a huge retarded baby that likes to kick himself in the butt….

    Oh…. Who to root on? On one hand, Nebraska beating Missouri, sets up a big game down the road with the Wildcats… Secondly, a Missouri victory will perhaps get a big game in Manhattan in November? Either could maybe get a College Gameday appearance, if both teams run the table.

    I think I have to root on Nebraska. There are few football statistics that Kansas State is in an elite position, and while the Big 12 is still semi-young, KSU is one of only three North teams to represent the North in the Big 12 Championship. If I had to have Nebraska or Missouri make the Big 12 Title game, I choose Nebraska (Callahan can play for a close game again, and Pinkel can continue to hang on to his job by his finger tips). Nebraska 24, Missouri 19.

    Sorry, to all those Tiger fans out there, but it is the best of two evils.

    Oh, KSU vs. KU – 31 to 17, Cats. Freeman sets up Aquib Talib (or whatever) with the outs and goes deep on him (twice).
