My absolute favorite day of of the year (besides Week 1 of the NFL) is here. I’ve been celebrating St. Paddy’s Day in various ways since Sunday. I won’t get into details but you can bet it has involved a lot of soda bread and Guinness.
Along with it being St. Patrick’s Day, it is also Draft Thursday here at Arrowhead Addict. Stick around all day as we’ll be taking a look at various draft prospects and scenarios. We want to hear your thoughts on these players so make sure you jump in the mix in the comments.
This news became the biggest part of the Kansas City sporting landscape on Wednesday, artfully timed for a window where the Royals are still in Arizona and off the radar, the NFL labor situation is quiet and it’s the day before the start of March and all its madness. Soccer? Why not grab a few crumbs from the already sliced up sporting pie.
When you are Sporting Kansas City, any chance for a headline is worth the time and effort. They are about to begin their season and they’ll christen a brand new stadium this season. But they have the same old problem – a limited connection with the sports fans of Kansas City.
OK, for those of you Jayhawk followers, you know that’s a big exaggeration. But Kansas did hold its pro day on Wednesday as 10 players worked out for NFL scouts.
Here are the players that worked out: linebacker Drew Dudley, defensive back Chris Harris, defensive end Jake Laptad, running back Angus Quigley, punter Alonso Rojas, defensive back Calvin Rubles, linebacker Justin Springer, offensive tackle Brad Thorson, wide receiver Johnathan Wilson and defensive end Quintin Woods.
Patrick Allen is VP of Content for the FanSided Network. He also serves the managing editor of the network's very first site, Arrowhead Addict. Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
