Pick It n’ Stick It: Spreading it Open

Here we go again on another week of Pick It n’ Stick It. We’re gonna try something different this week as we are picking games using the spreads for yahoo sports on Wednesday. It should make things a little closer and more competitive. Speaking of competitive, I guess I did lose last week so I tomorrow I’ll make due on the loser bet.

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.

T-D, we want a… what!?

tailgating-2007-012-compressed.JPG
It was around 8:15 Saturday morning, cruising across I-70 in Nowhere, MO when I opened my eyes from my brief nap and saw the first of many tiger tails whipping in the wind. The familiar site of the tiger tail attached to the trunk of the SUV brought a smile to my face. Sure it was week 3 of the season, sure there had already been two Mizzou victories, but this was the first home game; the first tailgate, the first day of watching football in the open air, and I was ready….

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.

Week 2: Home of the 12th Man, Wedding Parties, and YUCK!

Here’s yet another late post from the sunny side of State Line.  Forgive me for my tardiness, but I have my “first game” blinders on.  Each year, about 1 week prior to Mizzou’s home opener, I turn into a giddy little school girl.  My mind is clouded with thoughts of Tiger football, beer, brats, reuniting with old friends, etc.  It’s similar to thoughts of sugar plums, but even better!  Still, I can muster up a few thoughts about week two.  We’ll do this random style, and unlike Yurple, I don’t mind if you complain a little about local teams not being televised.

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.

This Little Piggy Watched Football, This Little Piggy had Beer…

And this little piggy saved the game!

Okay, that wasn’t much of a nursery rhyme, but it should give you enough information on whether or not you desire to finish reading my ‘kick-off’ post. In all honesty, I’m very excited about this venture. College Football season is absolutely my favorite time of year. It’s not just the game; it’s the camaraderie, the tailgating, the stories, the rivalries, the upsets… Regardless, if you’re an MU fan like me, a K-State fan like P-Yeti, or dear I say it, one of those Jayhawkers, I hope you find this site useful, or at least somewhat entertaining. Let the entertainment begin…. Continue reading This Little Piggy Watched Football, This Little Piggy had Beer…

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:
