Adventures with FIFA

While I have really tried to update my blog regularly, I must admit that I have become really lazy since the end of the baseball season. The Chiefs left me with far too much to desire, and neither the Seahawks nor the Patriots interest me enough to write about them. Instead, I’m going to write about FIFA.

I don’t own FIFA, but I do have a demo downloaded on my PS4 (which you should buy, if you don’t have one). While I am not a fan of soccer at all, FIFA has certainly peaked my interest. I’d like to take this time to run through some of my favorite and least favorite parts about FIFA.

Describing the Chiefs season in one word

It was a bittersweet end to the season for the Chiefs, as they took down division rival San Diego, but also missed the playoffs. Fans were scoreboard watching, hoping that maybe, just maybe, Cleveland and Jacksonville could work some magic.

Of course, it didn’t have to come down to the last week. The Chiefs went 3-4 in the last seven games of the season, after an impressive 6-3 start that included a five game winning streak. They were one game better than last year (2-5) in the last half of the season, but not as impressive in the first half as last year (9-0).

Week 15 Preview: Chiefs vs. Raiders

The Chiefs look to bounce back from their 3 game losing streak this week, as they face the Oakland Raiders in a rematch of that ugly Thursday Night Game that started this whole thing.

There was nothing glaringly bad about that last game against Oakland, except for the 14-0 deficit to start the game, and all the minor mistakes that led to the Raiders game winning touchdown drive late in the fourth.

Tough road to playoffs for Chiefs

Just when I start to think that blogging might just not be for me, I somehow always find a way back here to write something. It’s been almost a month, and a lot has happened since then.

Thanksgiving break came and went, and it was a nice week off from school. I ate lots of food, saw my family, and relaxed. Most importantly though, I ate lots of food.

Finals week is next week, but somehow this week seems to be more stressful than next week. I’ve had a presentation and two exams this week, followed by four finals next week. Why do professors insist on making our lives difficult? I haven’t found an answer, but if I do, I’ll let you know.

Royals resiliency paying off in postseason

The Royals have taken the first two games of the ALCS on the road against Baltimore, and will return home on Monday with a chance to secure a spot in the World Series in front of a raucous crowd at Kauffman Stadium. Kansas City is enjoying this wild, crazy, magical dream season, but the wins haven’t come easy in the postseason.

It began against Oakland in the wildcard game, when the Royals managed to come back from an 8-3 deficit, winning in extra innings. Salvador Perez would be the hero there, driving in the winning run on a single down the left field line that barely escaped the glove of Josh Donaldson.
