Ladies of Kansas City, wanna bang? Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Tyler Thigpen wants to go on a date with you right after the 24-year-old South Carolinian finishes banging this skeleton. KC Magazine will auction Thigpen off December 5 at the Uptown for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. It'll be a double date with 38 the Spot cue-card reader Holly Starr. You'll get tickets to see Thigpen be abused by the San Diego Chargers and then take a limo ride to 810 Zone. I didn't realize he was into S&M on top of skeleton play. Deadspin wonders who's bringing the skeleton.
Speaking of skeletons, Bill Snyder has returned to Manhattan to coach the Kansas State Wildcats after three years of Ron "Grimace" Prince stomping the sidelines. Arrowhead Addict is overjoyed about the return of the windbreaker-wearing Monty Burns lookalike (thank you, JoCoSOB). Life in SoJoCo
wants to pee on the parade and remind you that Snyder's last two
seasons in the "Little Apple" were losing. For only the second time ever, I agree with JoCoSOB. "The hiring of Snyder ensures that the Purple Towel waving hillbillies to the West will remain losing." Especially in Arrowhead next year.
KC Currents' Sylvia Maria Gross goes in-depth on the Kansas City Star's layoffs and interviews former Star fixtures Lee Judge and Kit Wagar. In the second part, Gross talks with the Star's Publishing Prince of Darkness, Mark Zieman. Note: Laying people off makes Zieman :(
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's
Dan Raley totally wants to make out with the Sprint Center and its
"charcoal-colored seating," "upscale feel" and "cool electronic
imagery." I guess that makes the score, Kansas City 1, Seattle
columnist's insufferably verbose dispatches. A drinking game! You guys
nailed the "wonderment at the glory of nature" bit but I gotta say I'm
a little disappointed. Where's the references to Paris, Mickey the Cat or C-Dub's unparalleled bird watching abilities?
