At the start of the week, in which 107 years ago, Louise Brooks was born, lets focus on a few things Kansas. Fortunately her birthday will be on Thursday, and given that I’m off on Thursday, there are absolutely no prizes for working out what that nights blog will be about!
But for tonight, lets focus on other related matters, even if strictly Kansas City isnt in the state of Kansas, its pretty close by, and most from the eastern part of the state (which includes Cherryvale, of course) would probably support the KC teams as ‘their’ team anyway.
Before the start of the NFL season, people expected the Chiefs to be better than last year. Not hard, they were the worst team in the league last year. New coach, new quarterback, and hopes of a better season. But seriously, if anyone had said they would be 9-0 at their bye week, this week, no, no one would have believed you. But facts are facts, that is where they are, last unbeaten team.
No, I’m not really a fan, but I guess they are the second team I look for, because of the whole Kansas thing. Especially as my first team are Buffalo, which is of course quite close to Rochester, where Brooks closed her life. Same thing with the Royals in baseball, I keep an eye on them, just because.
Oh, and somewhere that really is in Kansas, the Kansas State Wildcats. Not altogether surprisingly, they arent matching last year, but given the loss of Klein, its not the biggest shock of all time. But yesterday, they met, and beat handsomely, the 25 ranked Texas Tech, by 49-26. So no, they arent going to a big bowl this year, but they are playing with pride.
Oh, the video, well yes, the clue is in the title. But its not Judy Garland, its another who was lost to this world at far too young an age, Eva Cassidy.
4 days from now, you might get the OMD video, but you might not! 😉
