    32 For 32: Kansas City Chiefs

    in Sports

    The Kansas City Chiefs were yet another strange team in 2014, going from 0-2 to 7-3, then laying an egg to Oakland (even though they scored 20 points) & ultimately falling out of the AFC playoff picture. But the big story was safety Eric Berry's health. After that loss to the Raiders, he received an X-ray which revealed a mass in his chest believed to be lymphoma. He was placed on the non-football illness list, ending his season. A month later, Berry was confirmed to have Hodgskin's lymphoma. He has begun treatment & many of us are wishing him a strong recovery. My prayers have been & will be w/ him during this time. The Chiefs have made some moves during the off-season, bringing in free agents such as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (reuniting w/ Jason Avant from Philadelphia) & safety Tyvon Branch. The pressure continues to be on head coach Andy Reid. He's been expected to make a Super Bowl run w/ this team & that hasn't happened. & he has yet to win a Super Bowl, pinning him on the list of one of the greatest coaches in league history to not accomplish the feat. Some fans have started to lost patience. Something's gotta give, right? I hope for the sake of Reid that this team finally turns to corner in 2015. It's been a long time coming since the franchise's last Super Bowl triumph (Super Bowl III), but Arrowhead remains one of the toughest places to play of opponents & as long as you have great fans supporting your team, you'll always have a shot to accomplish wins, divison titles, & maybe even a Lombardi trophy. This team still has work to do, but it looks like they're heading in the right direction. How far can & will they go? We'll discuss that as well as Eric Berry in our next installment of "The Rocket Sports Breakdown" Friday evening @ 6:30pm on Blog Talk Radio. Rocket Nation, get ready for a power trip.

    KANSAS SENATE SUNDAY

    in Politics

    Caution: there is a 5 min. dead space at the very beginning where my mic was muted. I apologise for the inconvenience.


    The statehouse senate in Topeka goes into record breaking session, and we'll be playing audio clips and commenting on some of the most memorable moments.  The debate held today will be around how to raise tax revenues to fill the $400 million deficit immediately facing the #Brownback led #FailedExperiment.


    We finish with professor Christopher Parker on Talking Stick tv defining Tea Party "conservatives" as "reactionairies" and how he came up with delineating the Republicans among the false "revolutionaires."  


    This should be of particular interest to those in the Kansas "Red Pen Briagade" who are trying to destroy popular social services available to the working poor in Kansas.
