Barpsotting for Pick It and Stick It: Mashed Together Like Potatoes


Last week was the beginning of Rivalry Week and now we are fully realizing its end.  We had out schedule jacked up due to Thanksgiving and we’re sure you’ve had yours as well.  It’s all for a good thing, however, as we should give thanks to what we have at least once a year.  So in celebration of Thanksgiving and our shortened week, we are combining our Barspotting and Pick It and Stick It posts.  And without further ado, we are Barspotting at Chappell’s Saturday.  Yes, we’ll be just back in town to watch the Border War between Kansas and Missouri.  We’re going up to North Kansas City and watchin some football as well as checking out their collection of sports memorabilia.   Thankfully, we are just in time to go over the picks too and we hope you didn’t forget to make yours on this short week.

When: Saturday November 27, 2009
Time: 2:00 PM
Where: Chappell’s Restaurant & Sports Museum, 323 Armour Road, North Kansas City, MO 64116

Rivalries are abound as just about every game on the list is a rivalry.  So in between the turkey and gravy and shopping and family, check out these games.  Some of them sound cool like the Duel in the Desert with Arizona and Arizona State.  Some of them sound goofy like the Egg Bowl with Ole Miss at Mississippi State.  No matter the name, they all mean something big to the teams and offer up a tradition only seen in college football.  Big 12 wise, we missed out on the Nebraska and Colorado game but that’s alright.  Nebraska won and it didn’t matter.  We have the Bedlam series for Oklahoma State and Oklahoma tomorrow.  The ‘Pokes will get a good shot at a BCS bid provided they win and Texas does next week against said Cornhuskers.  The other major game for the Big 12 is the Border War.  Kansas needs a win to be bowl eligible and Missouri needs a win to get 2nd in the North.  Who’s gonna win?  Come on out to Chappell’s and help us find out.

Pick It Standings Week 4: Discussions of Concussions


The world stood still and then moon and sun stopped spinning for just one moment as Tim Tebow was kneed in the head and carted off the field, vomiting into a pink bag.  Ever so slowly the planets began motion and we call took a breath as we watched the ambulance pull Superman away into the unknown.  The ticker told us what happened.  We were update hourly on his condition.  When it was all said and done, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow had a concussion.  Fortunately for our picks, it wasn’t as dramatic.

J. Murphy’s Brings Out the Irish in Every One

Western Europe meets the western Kansas City area as we trucked way the heck out to Shawnee to view Saturday’s selections at J. Murphy’s Irish Pub and Grille.  The games lined up for the afternoon seemed like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  The traditional fare sprinkled the joint so well we were waiting for a Contra Dance to bust out.  And the food, well the food was all it was cracked up to be, Irish wise.  But there was so much more than really cheesy Irish references (which we will stop as of now) at J. Murphy’s.
