What's a girl gotta do for some Kansas athletics?

If you know me, you know how much I love living in St. Louis.  If we were in elementary school, the previous statement would have been made on opposite day.  In fact, I dislike living in St. Louis and am counting down until I can move on to the next city in my life.  I plan to discuss a few of the many reasons St. Louis just rubs me the wrong way, but today I'm just going to focus on Kansas athletics.  Disclaimer: If you love STL, living in STL and everything that is STL...I'm sorry if I offend you.  It's nothing personal!  There actually are some things I like about living in the Dirty Lou...but none will be discussed today.

The number one reason I dislike living in St. Louis...it's infested with Mizzou fans...and being a die-hard Kansas fan...this does not tickle my fancy in the slightest.  Everywhere you turn there is a repulsive fan wearing Mizzou gear.  Every bar in St. Louis is a Mizzou bar.  And it sucks.  Everyone either went to Mizzou or loves Mizzou.  I'd rather slit my wrists than go to Mizzou (complete joke - I'd never slit my wrist - but you get the idea of how much I hate obnoxious Mizzou fans).  I constantly live in fear that someone will slit my tires solely based on my Kansas tags.

I realize STL is a plague of Tigers, but please...I KNOW for a fact there are some Jayhawks here too!  I get that Jayhawk football is really sucking this year (it's a transition year), but when I go to a sports bar I expect that I will be able to find them broadcasting the Jayhawks - even if it's on the TV in the back corner!  Wrong again.  Last night I went to meet a few friends and watch KU play Nebraska and we were informed the would not be playing the game...at a sports bar.  Friday night I had to resort to watching KU basketball slaughter Longwood, 113-75 via the world wide web (shout out to ESPN360).

Just as frustrating...no love here for the Chiefs.  And if you haven't watched the Rams lately or ever...they stink worse than Marley's doo doos....even if they are leading the NFC West...take my word.  Now the Chiefs on the other hand...not only are they leading the the AFC West (at the time of this post -they are currently losing to the Broncos...but that's beside the point) but they are also leading the NFL in rushing yards with an average of 5.0 yards per.  Before you start thinking I'm some amazing sports fan, I'll let you know I looked all this up on NFL.com.

All this girl is asking for is some Kansas athletics in my life on something other than my 14" MacBook screen.  Is that too much to ask?  I think not.  I have this amazing high definition flat screen in my living room for a reason...not to mention the $$$ I pay for AT&T U-verse...please sweet baby Jesus...give me some Kansas athletics (specifically Kansas Basketball) before I go crazy here in the Dirty Lou.

-Stay Sassy, xo

P.S. Thank you Blair for drawing to my attention that the Chiefs are not technically from Kansas....I realize this...but they typically are the "Kansas team" considering they are the closest thing to an NFL team Kansas has.  Smart ass....


  1. The Chiefs aren't from Kansas.

  2. Well, I am a Tiger as you know, but I understand your frustration. I used to travel for work on fall weekends a lot and couldn't find my beloved Mizzou on TV most of the time either. If I were you I would blame That idiot Commissioner Beebe who signed off on the terrible Big 12 TV contract, more than I would the great city of St. Louis, but thats just me LOL!!!!

  3. I too am a Jayhawk stranded here in this god forsaken city. The MU and Illinois fans are both annoying and irrelevant. As a matter of fact, this whole city is annoying and irrelevant. I am planning my escape, though.
    Go Hawks.
