    Cameron: 3-point shot making game ‘a bit of a bore’

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    Confession: I’m a hypocrite. For instance, I kept banging the TV remote on Wednesday night, first intending to stick with the Cats’ game at Kansas — but then finding it impossible to resist routine peeks at the Golden State Warriors’ game against Washington. I mean,

    Cameron: OK, we called this one

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Journalists who go out on a limb and get a story exactly correct when the whole world seems to be saying the opposite, well… We try to remain relaxed and humble about it. But we aren’t. Hell, no, we throw our

    Cameron: Free agency leaves Royals with tough decisions

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dillon Gee. Never mind who he is for a moment. Instead, consider the panic he’s caused. Despite back-to-back World Series appearances and winning the whole enchilada last season, Royals fans are frightened. Maybe it comes from two decades in the wilderness —

    Seaton: Don’t expect Sean Snyder as next coach

    Ned seaton

    As soon as I tell anyone I’m from Manhattan, nine times out of 10 the conversation goes like this: “Sure is amazing what Bill Snyder has done. Is he going to keep coaching?” And then: “Are they going to hire his son to take over

    Cameron: Thanks for everything, Alex, but Royals are moving on

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    It almost seems unfair. Just a week ago, Royals fans were gearing up for the fifth game of the World Series — riding a dreamy high that exploded with a dramatic comeback victory over the Mets that same night. Yes, that was all just a week

    Cameron: Now, we start playing by the NL’s rules

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — So far it’s been golden. Two games, two wins. But now the World Series moves to New York, and an entirely new phase. Let’s call it… hmm… How about the Stupidity Series? Yep, this is the part where they change

    Cameron: Get to know a little about the mystery Mets

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It’s almost impossible to stay unknown in New York City. Baristas who make the best café mocha in the financial district find their way into newspaper profiles. Garbage haulers get TV time for rescuing cats — on competing networks. Bottom line: The

    Game 5, maybe series, turned on one pitch

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    Thousands of baseball games have turned on one pitch. It happened to the Royals on Wednesday, pushing the American League Championship Series back to Kauffman Stadium with Kansas City still up 3-2. The weird thing about the biggest pitch in the Blue Jays’ survival game,

    There’s no shame in losing to No. 19 Oklahoma. Unless you get shut out, 55-0. After back-to-back weeks of surprisingly-close losses to ranked teams, the Kansas State football team came crashing back to earth in historic fashion Saturday afternoon at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. This
