So how does it feel to support the only team in the NFL without a loss? Thanks to the sheer luck of the bye-week scheduling, I can say it feels fantastic. At least until next week when our Chiefs have to travel to Indianapolis. The best quarterback in the league doesn’t take losses well, and he can carry that chip on his shoulder into the next week, which makes us a little nervous here in Kansas City.
In other news, it’s October! Time to welcome in the changing of the leaves, the trips to the pumpkin patches and cider mills, the various Renaissance Festivals with their over-sized turkey legs and LARPing.
It also means baseball playoffs. And a hearty congratulations to you if your team is still alive and kicking. My White Sox unfortunately hit a late skid and couldn’t keep their position at the top of the AL Central (stupid Twins and all their winning in September). But there’s something about cold weather baseball that just feels more spirited, even if you’re only watching it on TV. Plus, with the Twins playing outdoors now, I’m rooting for them to go as late as possible on the off chance that a World Series game could be snowed out.
And speaking of Target Field (big segue coming), Target is now selling iPads! At the moment 3G models aren’t available, but chances are they’ll be coming soon. You can check out Target.com or MacRumors for more details.
Well have a great week everybody. Playoffs start Wednesday. Go AL Central.
