So, last month, I was 3 feet away from Han Solo. We were, of course, under strict orders to not mention “Indiana Jones” or “Star Wars.” So, I had to come up with something else to ask the man who famously returned an “I love you” from Princess Leia with “I know.”
Left with […]
We have crossed over into the surreal. Last month, we all watched in horror as events too impossible for a summer movie blockbuster played out on our television screens, our radios and our computers. The images were indelible and heartbreaking.
While we all had seen events such as these play out before – […]
Every year, my son and I pick one weekend to go on a “Man-cation” with the added benefit of leaving my wife alone for a weekend that she doesn’t have to cook and clean and do all of the other wonderful things that she does for us.
For my son and I, we look forward […]

Friday night, at least 20,000 Royals fans piled […]
We’re all heartbroken. Kansas City. Boston. America.
It dawned on me a couple of inevitable things may be coming down the way soon.
Our Royals are in Boston waiting for some sense of normalcy to be restored. There’s no […]
SWING AND A MISS
What a terrible day this is in Platte County. I thought you people had a sense of adventure.
Just over a year after its opening, the Shangri La of Sexy Time, the Bed and Breakfast of Boom Boom, the Romantic Getaway Today Inn in downtown Parkville has closed […]
SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE

If your bracket looks anything like mine, then you’re absolutely ready for Spring Training to end and Baseball Opening Day to get here. We look back at the week that was in Royals Baseball. We still have the best record. How neat is that?! We have some parting shots from our own Sports Reporters and […]
