Colts Losing on Purpose Suck for Luck
Play calling. It's as simple as that - play calling. The Colts are calling plays that will guarantee failure. Running plays up the middle that have absolutely no chance of gaining yards are the Colts staple plays this season. Every once in awhile a running back will break out of the pack, but believe me, this is NOT by design. The running back simply gets a break and takes advantage. Watch the Indianapolis Colts play calling and notice these hopeless runs into traffic. As for the passing, you might notice that Reggie Wayne has only been targeted less than 10 times in over 3 games. That is very interesting considering that he used to be Peyton Manning's number 1 or number 2 look on any passing play last season. Curtis Painter is only given the green light to throw up a few long passes, but mostly he is called upon by his coach to throw little dink and dunk passes to receivers who are running short routes.
Other ways the Indianapolis Colts are losing on purpose for the first round draft pick include defensive calling. The defense of the Colts are not blitzing. In previous seasons, opposing teams would be treated with the one - two punch pass rush of Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney.
Not the case this season, since star quarterback Peyton Manning went out for the season or possibly for good, the Colts defense are playing a very generic 3-4 defense and are simply not stopping their opponents.
The Colts are not necessarily losing on purpose to get upcoming quarterback Andrew Luck, they are just losing on purpose to get the first pick, which they may choose to trade to another team for more draft picks or to use as leverage to another means. The Colts are playing dirty pool and if you can't see that, then you probably can't see the nose on your face either.
Uh oh, it recently came to out attention that some people feel that the owners and coaches would not put their players in a position that my result in injuries. Yeah, right, do you really think that the Indianapolis Colts would let any of their star players get injured? And do you think that they care about any non-star players that get injured - uh, no. Dismiss that thought immediately, they are losing on purpose, period.

Cardinals Win 2011 World Series
Baseball critics and analysts alike are already calling game 6 a game of legendary proportions. The Cardinals trailed the Rangers for almost the entire game, all the way up until the 9th inning. With the score 7-5 Rangers in the bottom of the 9th inning, 2011 World Series hero David Freese hit a 2 run RBI triple to tie the game at 7-7. In the 10th inning the Rangers put up two more runs on a two run homer by Josh Hamilton, only to have the Lance Berkman tie the game again with an RBI single to make the score 9-9 after 10 innings. Inning number 11; enter the hometown hero, born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, 3rd baseman David Freese steps up in the bottom of the 11th inning and gleeks the ball into the grassy knoll in straight away center field - WALK OFF HOME RUN!! Say goodnight Gracie, the Cardinals are heading to game 7 at home.
In the World Series, a lot of the attention goes to the offense, the batters, the home run hitters, the base runners. But in the end, a great pitcher will eventually emerge, and silence the offense of the opposing team, and thus claiming the victory for his brothers. That pitcher was Chris Carpenter. Game seven was simply dominated by the Cardinals as the Texans couldn't produce any offense due to the extraordinary pitching by Chris Carpenter. Carpenter pitched seamlessly through 6 innings and one batter into the 7th, who hit a double. Although we questioned Cardinal manager Tony La Russa's decision to pull Carpenter, we cannot question the ways of the master. The Cardinals rallied behind their pitching staff sealed the win with a 6-2 World Series victory.

Chiefs Chargers Monday Night Arrowhead
Arrowhead Stadium will be full of ghosts and ghouls as fans will dress up for Halloween, there will be live music by The Shanks and Almost Kiss, presented by Adam Blue Productions and lots of great tailgating. Tickets will probably be easy to find, however, as many parents will be taking their kids out trick or treating and missing the game. I doubt that many children are going to be talked out of going trick or treating to go to a Chiefs game. So here at Kansas City News we're predicting that it will be easy to purchase scalped tickets outside Arrowhead Stadium prior to the game.
The only monsters that Philip Rivers is going to see will be named Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson as they mercilessly rush the pocket. If the defensive line can get penetration in the pocket it gives the Chiefs secondary a better shot at making plays on errant passes. The main concern for the Chiefs will be their offense. They will need Thomas Jones and Jackie Battle to step up and control this game with the run. We do not want to get into a "shoot out" situation with the Chargers, but rather keep the ball on the ground, run the clock and control the time of possession.

UFO Sightings in Lee's Summit Kansas City
The footage clearly shows a UFO hovering in place above the street, and it is right on par with the other recent sightings in Raytown and Lee's Summit in that the UFOs are flying right over major highways and streets. One account on Wednesday reported a large triangle shaped UFO that flew along highway 50 (Lee's Summit) and then darted away at a speed of approximately 300 miles per hour, then came to a complete and sudden stop over what looked like downtown Lee's Summit, Missouri. The UFO was described as having white, green and blue lights on the bottom of it and the lights seemed to be flashing in a pattern. The same witness also noted that there were at least 2 helicopters in the immediate area at the same time.
Another recent sighting in Lee's Summit occurred tonight at around 7:15pm. The couple was heading down 470 Highway and spotted something that looked like a military formation, but they quickly they realized that these aircraft weren't like any military craft that they had seen before. The UFO sighting was a formation of 6 craft that were flying due North at around 300-400 mph and they did not stop or perform any maneuvers and they flew quickly out of sight. Hundreds of UFO sightings in Kansas City and Lee's Summit are happening this week, I wonder what is going on?
Here at Kansas City News, we will keep watching the sky and keep you posted!
