Two clears, three reverses, and college football trumps

Well, I’m a little late in getting the post up, but when you’re weekend involves carting a bunch of drunk people to IHOP at 3:30 am, you’re gonna end up behind on a couple of things. You know, I didn’t have anything to eat to over there for the first time ever. I guess in the haze of all of the craziness, I knew I had to save some room for the crow I was about to eat over the first ever weekly pick bet. I did make up for the lack of flapjacks, however, for some tasty cheese fries at the Fox and Hound.

Pick It n’ Stick It: Wrecked ’em!? Dang near killed ’em!

We are starting a new feature this week that hopefully can stick (ha ha). Here are the picks for us this week. Yeah, we decided to try to dump this on Fridays and keep score. Hopefully as the season goes on, we can start coming up with wagers for the loser of the week. Comments are welcome as to what the loser has to do.

Don’t Stop Believing (as sung by Boomer)

I can’t believe I struggled out of bed at 7:30 am Saturday morning to go hit the gym before rolling off to another bar for college gameday. I actually spent about 2 1/2 hours there, which I would never have imagined doing 2 years ago. 2 years ago, I would sleep in because of all of the massive partying I did the night before. Now I’m on the elliptical watching ESPN College Gameday (not to be confused with our blog), rocking out to some Jet and plotting the day. I never would have imagined that the day would be full of more surprises and more parties than I expected.

Bags and Tubes make for a decent Gameday

Hey it’s another post! I guess I am starting to get into the habit of this. It’s interesting trying to get a good format for the blog and more than likely it will change from post to post. I’m real close to getting into the flow of things around here. Pretty soon, there will be more and coming from me and everyone else. As always, give us some feedback and try not complain too loud that none of the local teams made it to TV last week.

It’s Division One Football! It’s the Big 12! It Ain’t Intramurals!

Hello and welcome on my inaugural post here at the KCCGD. Thanks to Colorado coach Dan Hawkins for reminding us way back in February what college football means to me and everyone here in the good ‘ole Midwest. Football on the weekends were always a big part of my life growing up in Kansas City and hopefully through everyone here at the site, we can make your outings just a little more special. Now on to the first stop:
