Lol at Arthur Bryant's. Oklahoma Joe ' s in KCK is tops and it isn't close. I recommend Gates for the experience/uniqueness, if you have time to hit up a 2nd...but Jackstack is really good, too. That said, if you're that close to Jackstack in the Plaza, skip it and hit up Starker's up the block and...

The sabotaging was choreographed. I would have said it was faked, but someone would have responded that I couldn't refer to it as fake, because the refusal to sell to higher bidders wasn't fake--it really happened. It was scripted, but how dare I call it fake....

"Official" places to watch in KC change a lot. I think they were meeting at The Legends last year, or a couple years ago. Here's the KC chapter's website--it it's not up to date and the chapter, for all I know, could be inactive:

Well, it's not the perception of NFL scouts, GM's, and coaches:

Can't people be happy for this guy. He doesn't owe LSU anything more than he's already given the university. There are no guarantees if he comes back--injuries, possibilities of lesser production, etc. If he came back for another year, what does he gain? I've said it before, I want every LSU foo...
