Kansas Speedway has added a road course to bring a six-turn design to the front stretch.  More great news for Kansas City’s African American population.

Tamba Hali says he didn’t like being away from the Chiefs during his one-week suspension from the NFL for substance abuse. He spent his week off qualifying for next year’s Tour de France.


It looks like the Royals will finish the season in third place in the AL Central.  For the first time in two decades, the fans aren’t talking about Las Vegas when they cheer, “Let’s Go Royals.”

I’m not sure which movie set off the protestors in Libya, but I’m guessing it was Snow White and the Huntsman.
