It was the kind of performance that turns a season around.

Kansas City not only evened their record at 2-2, the fans also set a new Guineess World Record for crowd noise in an open air stadium after hitting 142.2 decibels. It was, of course, a new Arrowhead noise record.

A number of Royals players appeared on the Monday Night Football broadcast to cheer on the Chiefs. For two days at least, the Truman Sports complex sits at the center of the American Sports Universe: first with the MNF national telecast, followed by the A.L. wild card game at Kauffman Stadium between the Oakland A’s and Royals.

It’s been a long time since Kansas City fans could say that.

Both MU and K-State got good news on Monday. MU junior DE Shane Ray was named SEC Defensive Line Player of the Week, while Tyler Lockett took home Big 12 Player of the Week recognition.


"Former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher likely had CTE – chronic traumatic encephalopathy – according to post-mortem analysis of Belcher’s brain. This is being reported by the Kansas City’s Star’s Sam Mellinger"

"According to the Chiefs, a new record was set it in the first half with 142.2 decibels. The previous record was 136.6 decibels set by the Seattle Seahawks and (half dome) CenturyLink Field."


"Costs had to be cut, that wasn’t Glass’s fault. The Kauffmans had subsidized the team for years and it was simply unsustainable. David Cone was traded for nothing. Brian McRae was shipped out the next day. Trade rumors swirled around ace pitcher Kevin Appier for years. Hal McRae was let go to make way for a youth movement under Bob Boone."


"A Tulsa, Oklahoma, native, Lockett collected 143 punt-return yards, including a 58-yard touchdown, and 256 all-purpose yards to lead K-State to a 58-28 win over the Miners. The 143 punt-return yards were the second-most in school history and 29 yards short of tying the school record of 172. His touchdown was the Wildcats’ nation-leading 92nd non-offensive score since 1999 and his first career punt-return touchdown."


  • MUTigers.com – Shane Bray named SEC Defensive Line Player of the Week:

"University of Missouri junior DE Shane Ray (Kansas City, Mo.) was named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Line Player of the Week for his big game this past Saturday as he helped lead Mizzou to a thrilling 21-20 road comeback win at 13th-ranked South Carolina. Ray won the award, as announced tonight by the league office, after recording a career-high eight tackles (all solo stops), including 2.0 quarterback sacks, which ties his personal best."
