The total is now 6....

complete games for OMG Zack Greinke...Sunday, the boy was en fuego giving up only one hit... Greinke gets to boast with three shutouts and six complete games now, his 2.32 ERA is best in the American League...last night he walked one and struck out five in the best low-hit game of his career. Can we say 2009 Cy Young? I thought I wanted to talk 'bout Gordon...yeah I don't. If you could see me you'd see me shaking my head.

On the flip, season is almost over. We might end it at .400. Maybe. Can we get a break? At least we had Greinke to bring some brightness to the season. I think there is some saying about rebuilding and this and that and next year.....there are 32 games before I want to hear that shit.

BIG to address Todd Haley. And maybe his sanity. I don't even remember what I wrote last about the Chiefs. I am fairly sure it was before any of this preseason debacle stuff....

So first....Chan Gailey, OUT. Todd Haley filling his spot. People are acting shocked and appalled. Cause and effect. He was retained not someone Haley brought in. His playbook was written in blue crayola on a Big Chief tablet people...We have able arms (2 exactly, and I ain't talking about that dickweed Croyle) and people who can catch the preseason we score 2 offensive TD's in three games....and then our line lets the "big investment" go down.....pretty easy to see why he was let go. But here comes that sanity part I eluded to previously. You, sir are a first year coach, who has already been questioned (at least method wise) by the media...there is a huge weight on you to improve this team, and letting O cord go with no backup saying you will fill the position as well as you know...those head coach duties is maybe a little big in the britches. Shit, what do I know....I soon might be wearing a SuperHaley shirt and eating my words. I hope so.

Worried about Flowers....have not heard extent of his shoulder because the Cassel knee is overshadowing...but I must say I am more than pleased with our defensive play....everyone talking about how worried we were to change up the scheme, but it seems everyone is kinda fitting in and I am damn excited about Jackson. At least our D can score....

And now the part that makes me all woohooo....we have the components, and honestly what I think is a good start. The best part though....our division. After looking at Denver and the Raiders, well I could see us getting a few wins, and maybe just maybe making the playoffs. I know you think it is crazy talk....but I think I am on to something here.

Lupe over and out.

It's that time....

school is starting, fall sports practices...general running around like chickens with heads cut off. Oh yeah...and FOOTBALL!!

First, Royals are gonna get top billing. Gordon is starting to look like my favorite boy again and swinging the bat well. He is getting it back! We split with the Twins this series, and now head to Detroit. Pitchers are pitching decent and getting needed run support. Ready for a few home games, cause always love taking the kiddo to catch one or two as the summer winds down.

Chiefs finish training camp, and I am excited to see Toomer come to KC. Will give Bowe some competition and maybe make the kid step up. Hilarious article on some #27 trash talk HERE. More than anything I am just ready for football.

First fantasy draft on Sunday and I am sooo ready. I am playing in three leagues this year...I wonder if my head will spin and fly off actually trying to keep track of all my players and stats.

And the Eagles. While it was surprising to me, it makes sense. He is a McNabb style guy, and with Kolb's uncertainty I would say better to bring in someone who has played in the league even though I am not a huge Vick fan. He brings a lot of options to the O in Philly...even if he is used elsewhere besides QB. The questions will arise of how has he kept in shape and form and has he slowed-lost agility...but you can bet your buttons I will watch and find out. I think the guy committed heinous crimes...yes. He did his time, and should be given a chance to play just like other players before him that have had problems and served their suspensions. If nothing else, they can use him as a second wildcat and do some change up to keep some of those NFC D coordinators on their toes....I think it will be a cluster fuck, specially the first time any PETA protesters try to take their asses to the Link.

someone has been letting the blogging slip...

just wanted to mention I am still alive, and VIVA LA FOOTBALL!!

Royals...(insert head shaking) oh forlorn least Zackiepooh was able to get a W to break his ugly little no run support streak....and that is all I got for the Royals.

We finally sign Jackson, and first Chiefs game is right around the corner. I am anxious as hell to see what our new guys put together. Can't be any worse, right?
