This weekend has left me with a roller coaster of emotions. I've felt really great, then I felt down in the dumps, then I feel like just shutting off all electronics and start building something. The problem with that is I am not handy with my hands, and if I built something, it would look horrible.
|I wish I could make something that good!|
After all the events though, I can recap the weekend the best way by describing it The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly. I will start with the Ugly so I can cheer myself by ending with the Good.

What puts this in the Ugly category is the fact that Detroit swept their series this weekend and now hold a one and a half game lead in the AL Central. Kansas City still does hold the second wild card spot, but they chose a terrible time to start collapsing. That's the life of a Royals fan.
Just a reminder though- tomorrow is the 6 year anniversary of Milwaukee Brewers firing Ned Yost as manager as their manager while in the midst of a playoff chase. They replaced him with Dale Sveum, who finished the season at 7-5 and made the playoffs.
Dale Sveum is currently a hitting coach.... for the KANSAS CITY ROYALS!
|maybe we can replace the guy on the left with the guy on the right!|
After a magical start last year, most Chiefs fans expected the same this year. Hey, I'm just happy not to have a 2-14 season. Maybe I have a bit higher expectations, but after a week one loss to the Tennessee Titans (which former Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop got his revenge against his former team), the Chiefs at least kept it interesting this week against the AFC Champs Denver Broncos. In the end though Kansas City lose to their rivals 24-17.
|Hey Santos, umm, you might want to start making some kicks.|
So what good came from this weekend?
The Missouri Tigers beat the UCF Knights! Maty Mauk had 4 TD passes as Mizzou got a comfortable 38-10 victory. At least one of my teams did good this weekend.
|As one fan said Saturday "Mauk-tober has started early this year"|
Anyways, CMU won 35-22 after recording 10 sacks. Congrats guys! I hope they can keep up the momentum after losing their opening week game.
|Run Steinkamp, Run!|
Normally that would wrap things up, but I have decided since I am in a better mood now to add another category.
This weekend has saw an unexpected spike in readership for my blog as well as more followers and comments are starting to roll in. I think I started to find a secret to gaining success on this blog. You need to interact with other bloggers and they will interact with you. Not only will they interact with you, upon seeing their interaction and your comments on their blogs, readers will check out your page. Now, I'm not saying just comment and people will see your page, I never believed in that kind of promotion. I am saying make a genuine comment that means something and is worthwhile to the topic. Bloggers love interaction, especially if it is relevant. Basically a "Give and you shall receive" mentality.
OOPS! SPEAKING OF GREAT!
I forgot, this Friday night was a super great night for me. Bob Walk The Plank was running a contest, and on Friday night announced his winners. I was lucky enough to be one. My first win in a blog contest. I have won a few contests in my day, but this was the first in a long time, and it hopefully isn't the last. I followed it up with getting a card I won off Listia in the mail (which I will feature later this week), and won a couple more Listia auctions. After all that, I can't really complain much at all about this weekend.
Ok, now I think I can say this (and I mean it every time), thank you for reading and have a great week!
