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.

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 12: Gobble Gear Up


It’s a short week here as we’re are in training for Thanksgiving Thursday.  We thought about calling up Mark Mangino to help us train but we don’t like being verbally abused and we most certainly don’t want him to hog all of the food.  So here we are stretching and exercising for the marathon of food we get to sprint through.  A couple of things to note in setting your eat order is:  Do you use dark meat or white meat?   Are you a gravy fan?  Pumpkin or  Apple pie?  These answers can lead you to the top of the glutton mountain and be crowned the Feast King.  Now here’s the Pick It and Stick It standings:

810 Zone Dishes Out a Pricey Time

Finally, the KCCGD has come BACK to Leewood, Kansas!  Okay, we’re not too much into old school wrestling references, but we had to set the tone on how we felt within the walls of the 810 Zone.  We all aren’t wrestling fans and we don’t live in trailers.  In fact we’re pretty normal.  But compared the crowd out there, we certainly felt that way.  Even so, we ended up having a pretty good time.   Our wallets felt the pain however.  So did the Kansas State Wildcats as they tried to win the Big 12 North against Nebraska.  Oh the times we had.

Mascot Monday: Colonel Reb


It’s the last Mascot Monday of the offseason and the KCCGD offices are all over the place.  We’re getting ready for the start of a new season and we have time for one more send up to our favorite distractions, mascots.  We had some crazy mascots, some hardcore mascots, and some live animal mascots paraded across every Monday.  For our final one, we will take a look at a mascot from a preseason top 25 team in Ole Miss.  Except that there isn’t a mascot, or at least not an official one.
