No Matter How Good You Are There Is Always Someone Better

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       “No matter how good you are there is always someone better” said my father as we sat watching the Saturday afternoon rerun of the Ali-Frazier trilogy so many years ago.  He told me that the best boxer in the world might be smacking a bag way back in the Appalachians, waiting to be discovered but better than the best.   I think he is right.     It certainly appears to be the case with the Patriots. Like Frazier, the Kansas City Chiefs have…

The Training Camp Wars

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet The Training Camp Wars Randy Murawski What does your Arrowhead adventurer know about training camp? Well as far as experience, I don’t have any more than many, and much much less than some. But what I do have is a knack for noticing details. Watching “Hard Knocks” on HBO isn’t just a show for me. Watching from the sidelines in St. Joseph isn’t just watching practice for me. It’s sharing with the guys. Sharing the pain they are going through. Sharing the fear. Sharing the disappointment, the…

The Sleeping Giant Awakens

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet In the morning mist the giant form of Arrowhead Stadium looms. The last time I saw her, she looked cold but comfy, like a hibernating bear. This last week, she looked tan, rested and ready as I headed down my favorite shortcut for a practice run.  Many people have no interest in preseason games… “They don’t count for anything” I hear… “None of the starters play very long if at all” they say in the break room where I work. I couldn’t disagree more. Preseason games are…
