    Bauman: Surprise, surprise, Globetrotters win again

    Globe1.phatch

    Some teams live and die by the 4-pointer (not really) and the Harlem Globetrotters certainly lived by it Thursday night — making one at the buzzer to erase the Washington Generals’ hopes of replicating its famed 1971 victory in the long rivalry — the last time they defeated

    Cameron: Royals gambling on new of f-season acquisitions

    KANSAS CITY — The Royals’ run to the final game of the World Series produced enough electricity to keep Ogden lit up for decades. And guess what? Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in about seven weeks. Can we get Faith Hill to sing: ‘Are

    K-State men spiraling out of control

    Cut047joel.phatch

    Back in December, I wrote that the Kansas State men’s basketball team didn’t need to hit the panic button yet. Now it feels like that’s well overdue for the Wildcats. K-State is now 7-7 this season after dropping three straight games, and

    Seaton: Bo, Bill, Frank…and that sax solo

    Ned seaton

    A couple thoughts on two recent events: —With the firing of Bo Pelini as the football coach at Nebraska, I can’t help but think of Frank Martin and Bill Snyder. Martin, because the parallels tell you something. And Snyder, because, well, it just reminds

    Kansas State’s game at Baylor next week couldn’t be bigger for the Wildcats. Sure, there’s no Big 12 title game anymore, but this one could come pretty close, considering what’s all on the line for both teams. And this is the Wildcats’

    Cameron: KC in good shape with Shields out the way

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Maybe Ned Yost is tricking everybody, including the San Francisco Giants. No, seriously. The trick? Since the Royals aren’t likely to score much of anything against Giants ace Madison Bumgarner — who’s pitched about a thousand innings of postseason baseball without

    Cameron: Royals prove winning does cure everything

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. —You want iron-clad proof that winning cures everything? Royals manager Ned Yost stood on a platform near the Kauffman Stadium infield and told a national TV audience: “This was really for our fans and our city. We couldn’t have done it

    Cameron: Even fear of KC’s speed helps Royals

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY — Sometimes it’s amazing what so-called “experts” don’t know about baseball. For instance, the national media covering the American League Championship Series have accepted as a fact that the Orioles have “shut down” the Royals’ running game. If Baltimore actually had won

    Bill Snyder turned 75 years old on Tuesday and probably stayed up pretty late last night. No, it wasn’t because the longtime Kansas State coach was out partying or even blowing out three-quarters of a century’s worth of candles into the early morning hours.

    Cameron: Royals on verge of clinching

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY — Good grief!! What will this city be like tonight? “Loud,” offered outfielder Alex Gordon, who drove in the Royals’ first run against the Los Angeles Angels Friday night. “Really, really loud.” “Just plain crazy,” summed up first baseman Eric Hosmer, whose screaming two-run
