Hey Slap, what are the chances the 'Stros can make another run similar to last year in the second half of the season?

You know, even I can get a clue. Roto baseball has to do with individual player stats. The Cubs don't have to win a game for a good fantasy player to grab great stats off some of their staff. I know context isn't your strong point so now that this has been explained to you, try to keep it in mind.

Always lurking TJ and I appreciate the kind words about my column last year, but I'm afraid that there are a couple of reasons why I can't do the same column this year.

I'm actually taking a semester off from teaching to finish my PhD and so I won't have the same 45 minutes in the car every morning and afternoon to listen to the radio. Really, I don't listen to local sports radio anymore anyway. I bought a new car that has XM radio and I haven't tuned into the local sports radio stations much since then.

As for Zach's comment about my rants on how sports radio in KC sucks, I would have to say that this wasn't the original intention of the column. The column was supposed to give an inside track to the Broncos fans on what the Chiefs fans were saying.

Problem with that plan was that I didn't expect the Chiefs to suck as bad as they did. They quickly became irrelevant and the Chargers became the team we all cared about (or should've anyway). As a result, the theme of the column drifted towards making fun of the typical caller to a local radio show who wanted to trade Larry Johnson for Terrell Owens or complain about the officials in a 20 point loss. That's not what I wanted the column to be, but that was really all I had to work with.

Surely, you're not defending the sports radio in KC. Kietzman is an idiot who never thinks he's wrong and proves daily that he knows very little about sports (and I'm a KSU ). Tim Grunhard still thinks fart jokes are funny and his co-host doesn't speak very well since his nose is usually stuck up Grunny's ample butt. Neal Jones and Marty Wall are an abortion disguised as a radio show. Soren Petro is good, but is up against Rome and I don't get to listen much in the middle of the day. SSJ is funny, but Bob Fescoe couldn't find his turd cutter with both hands and a flashlight. Add in the fact that the Royals are freaking brutal, the Chiefs are the only other professional team in town and the radio hosts (outside of Petro) don't know ANYTHING about any college team that isn't in the Big 12 North and you could conclude that calling sports radio in Kansas City a "wasteland" would be a compliment.

Sorry TJ.

I'll have to see how the job situation is, I might be in a position where writing on Monday night isn't much of an option if in fact I get this job I'm going for.

I has been fun writing the past couple years, I could do the college stuff about the QB's and other prospects since I spend more time on saturday watching football than Sunday and I'm into the college game more, that is a possibility.

Yeah, the College prospects/QB's article would be best fit for me because I can write that on Sunday(a day I never work.) But if I get this nice job then I won't be able to write an article during the week for the OM.

This would be my dream scenario:


Monday's:
Alec's Titty Bar Report- Alec Raenos provides an sizzling and sensual report of his weekly experience on gameday at the Titty bar. It serves as an uplifter (literally) after losses and a cherry on top after wins. A real treat indeed.

Touchdown...Orange Force One has landed- Meck77 provides a great report and pictures of Orange Force One's weekly tailgate supreme and his fascinating experience with other orange blooded die hards before the game.

Tuesday:
Stats tell the Story- Yavoon provides detailed statistical analysis of why the Broncos won or lost. If you can withstand the pain of reading the actual text, it provides an interesting perspective.

Post Game Wrapup- DB-Freak and Kaylore provide a balanced and thorough position by position report of how the Broncos fared in last week's game.

Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde- Jake Meffley provides the reasons to be optimistic for the upcoming week focusing on aspects of the Broncos play the prior week and aspects of the current opponent, while Telluride takes a dimmer view preparing Maners for why the Broncos could let us down.

Wednesday:
High on Barbeque Sauce- Bob wants to suck your Uncle provides a laundry list of excuses on why the Chiefs lost. Its very detailed though, apparently done with the impression that we actually give a **** about the Chiefs.

Coyer's Destroyers- Mediator12 charts the week to week progress of individual defenders with grades and reasons. He also provides a look forward to the upcoming game with his "picks to click" and general keys to the game.

The Mastermind's Film Room- Bronco LB 52 breaks down the offense, who came through and who needs improvement with general grades for the offense based on the prior game. He provides specific matchups regarding the upcoming week and provides a suggested plan of attack for the upcoming opponent's defense.

Thursday:
Faderproof's Rookie Report- Faderproof is back for another great year of rookie reports. Breaking down rookie impact on a week to week basis, Faderproof provides Maners a great and insightful way of tracking the progress of our newbies.

B-Love's "Back to the Future" Report- B-Love revives his excellent blast from the past reports. He features a memorable game from the past between the Broncos and the weekly opponent. Its sure to be a great read!

Old Dude's Senile Ruminations- Maners are afforded a truly enjoyable read with Old Dude's crisp, witty and cogent analysis of the upcoming game. Thought provoking, insightful and funny all in one package!

Friday's:
Slappy's Sports Book- Slap checks in on Friday's to give Maners the low down on this week's NFL bets, with his easy money plays, over/under targets and general team betting trends.

Atlas's "Tasty Morsels"- Atlas provides a truly "in-depth" look at the weekly opponent's cheerleaders, highlighting through the use of modern imagery who has the best curves, boobies, hind end, face and general sexy appearance. It truly will get Maners up for the game and is a perfect bookend for Alec's Titty Bar reports. This stuff is gold folks...gold.

The View from Beezer's Corner- Watermock finishes off a great week of reads by providing a brutally frank and No-Holds Barred look at NFL Football in general. Strap on your seatbelts, everyone's a fair target on this wild ride. In what will be a weekly competition with Slap, Mock also provides his famous "Mock's Locks".

I knew you were going to homer that a little. That's ok. I still really want to see your rookie report even if you totally ignore Maurice. Actually, if you think about it, it might be better for you to do the reports and include him there. That way you can intentionally downplay his accomplishments each week and highlight his ****ups right there on the front page for all to see.

I like the college prospects idea better, that way I can consistenly downplay Matt Leinart's accomplishments.
