Crib Sheet: Tis the Season


As expected, there is a ton of news this week.  Conference championships are over, coaches are fired, kids are leaving for the NFL, and the bowls are lighting up.  Here’s this week’s Crib Sheet while we go do some Christmas Shopping:

Crib Sheet: Road Turkey


It’s a short week here at the KCCGD.  We gotta pack up tonight and get ready to hit the highway big time for Turkey Day.  We still have some time to get pumped for college football.  Usually when you think of football and Thanksgiving, it’s the NFL games with Detroit and Dallas.  But, there is even a bigger tradition for Thanksgiving and college football.  Rivalries are all over the place and it’s spread out nicely across the whole weekend.  So while the travel may be plentiful for us and maybe you, we are guaranteed some live college football at some point.  Happy Thanksgiving and here’s the Crib Sheet:

  • Mascot Monday participant UGA VII of Georgia died last night due to a heart failure.  Our condolences goes out to the university and all live animal mascots out there.
  • ESPN Page 2 columnist Matthew Iles talks about some of the more goofy rivalry trophies in college football.  We like the Old Brass Spittoon the best.  I wonder if, at the end of the game, whether or no the winner spits in it and if it makes a ba-doing noise.
  • Florida State barely got bowl eligibility last weekend by edging out Maryland 29 – 26.  Bobby Bowden may end up being forced out anyway at the end of the year.  The guy has been getting from all sides down there.
  • Some Big 12 coaches are jumping to the defense of Kansas coach Mark Mangino.  Mike Leech and Bob Stoops are covering for him, even though they are alot like him.  The surprising one was Bill Snyder 2.0.  Coaches need to look out for each other and we’re seeing a pretty good case of this right here.
  • Jimmy Clausen could have used some defense when he was cold cocked by a fan in front of a South Bend restaurant.  Not very Catholic-like indeed.  Jimmy’s out at the end of the year and heading to the NFL.  This incident merely sealed the deal.
  • That’s just the tip of the iceberg for Notre Dame.  Charlie Weis pretty much said it himself when we stated that there is no surprise if the Irish can him at the end of the year.   Urban Meyer keeps telling the press he’s out, signaling the start of a new coaching search for the Domers.  No more vaunted, Charlie Weis led, Notre Dame Fighthing Irish.
  • Taylor Potts last week wore ‘Nick’ on the back of his jersey, now we know why.   Mike Leech talks about his man love former Kansas linebacker Nick Reid.  He never met him but for some reason he’s always thought Reid was the ultimate football player.  We’re still trying to figure this out.  It did help inspire them to a win though.

We Peeped Hooter’s til we were Pooped

Saturday was the big day.  We’ve been to a couple of chain restaurants before but this one was different.  This was Hooter’s.  We knew everything they were pushing.  The place started with girls first, then everything trickled down from their cleavage.  Hooter’s believes it also makes a great spot for a place to watch the game.  So last Saturday was the day to put it to to the test.  The test subjects included some great rivalry match ups, including the Red River Rivalry.  Let’s see what Hooter’s brought us.

Barspotting: Check Out These Hooter’s


It was bound to happen.  It could only be so long before we found out way there.  And so, thanks to your voting, we will be barspotting for KC College Gameday at Hooter’s.  If you don’t know what it is, then you probably never will be there.  Essentially it’s vehicle for putting women in tight clothes and making them overly friendly.  Word around the street, though, is their wings and cheese fries are top notch.  Being the guy magnet it makes no apologies to be, they also have sports packages available.  So we’re gonna find out this week if Hooter’s is a great place to watch sports as well as the talent.

Johnny’s Tavern has the Power and the Light

We were very skeptical when we strolled toward the Johnny’s Tavern setup on the corner of the Power & Light District in Downtown Kansas City.  We’ve been to a couple of places around there before and the experiences were weak.  We had some hope, however, as Johnny’s Tavern came through for us before.  After spending the afternoon there we can say it is the best bar in the district.  The food was great, the poker game was loads of fun, and the games on the screens were stellar.   If you own or work at a bar around that area, read on to see how to make it successful.
