I’m at that age where my mind still thinks I’m 29, my sense of humor suggests I’m 12 while my body mostly keeps asking if I’m sure I’m not dead yet. – Unknown
Welcome to the big column to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!
If you are a first-time visitor, welcome! CME is the once a week column that is posted here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. There may be some sarcasm and pointed commentary so be warned!
Here are the topics that “Caught My Eye” this week:
We are back after taking last Thursday off for Thanksgiving. I hope you had a great holiday!
Thanks for stopping by. If this is your first time reading “Thursday Numbers,” this is the column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary (sometimes spiked with a little sarcasm).
This week I write about Mega Millions, free preventative care, federal disability benefits, unemployment, Mike Tomlin, CenturyLink versus Arrowhead, Sandy Hook calls, roadkill permits, could it be Satan, Affordable Care Act, College Football Bowl schedule, Florida State/Ohio State, air pocket, the temperature, and much more!
Welcome to another edition of “Just Football!” This is the weekly column where I take a look at football from the NFL all the way down to High School!
With NFL week #11 under my belt I managed to pick 11 correctly (out of 14) but still out of winning the free pizza. Watch out – I am like a turtle – slow and steady and coming on at the end! Just a helpful reminder that there are three games on Thursday – so get your picks in early for Turkey Day.
Today I write about honors for some Lions, Philip Rivers and interceptions, my Chiefs, the BCS, the last Border War game, handling traffic tickets in Kansas, the Cats, the Griz, the Saints are marching, high school football, and a special place to crown champions in Missouri!

That’s what I was thinking after reading that most of Kansas and Missouri was switched from the Kansas/Missouri men’s basketball game to the Michigan/Michigan State men’s game on Saturday.
Being located over a thousand miles from the game, I really did not think too much about it when Greg Gumbel said CBS was switching from the Kansas/Missouri game to the start of the Michigan/Michigan State game. I figured that here in Montana I was lucky to see a few minutes of the game.
But for some reason, CBS switched the game on their affiliate in Kansas City, Missouri – in the heart of the border rivalry! I also heard it was switched in Columbia, Missouri – the home of the Missouri Tigers. Continue reading →
