Chiefs tank; It's baseball season now!

Hi-De-Ho Rene,

There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth going on in Kansas City today after Peyton Manning parted the Chiefs' defense like the Red Sea. Of course, both teams' defenses were there mainly for show, as neither team punted, but the Chiefs had a costly dropped ball, a shanked field goal, and a fumble after a fantastic run to blame for not scoring at least as many points as Indy. At least we lost to a classy team with an incredibly classy coach.

But while I'll keep my eye on the playoffs, it is now officially baseball season in Kansas City. It's been many years since the end of the Chiefs' hopes meant anything other than seven months of waiting around for football season again. With the signing of Juan Gonzalez, the apparent commitment to keep Carlos Beltran on hand for the final year of his contract, and the hope surrounding the ascension of young pitching, I'll wake up tomorrow looking forward to Spring Training. Ahh!

And there's always college hoops, right?
