Meet a Maverick: Tyler Parsons #1

Ask any sports fan about players who wear jersey #1, and the response will be about an exciting player who scores a lot. This season, the Kansas City Mavericks are hoping the player wearing #1 will provide excitement to a game by preventing anyone from scoring. 

A first year pro, goaltender Tyler Parsons is now in Kansas City to continue the franchise history with excellent goaltending. Parsons started the 2017-18 season in pre-season camp with both Calgary and Stockton before being sent to Kansas City. Parse, as his new teammates call him, is excited about being here and performing in front of sell-out crowds at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena.

Chiefs Players Assist SCA Football Players in Service Project

Several KC Chiefs line backers joined with Summit Christian Academy football players on Tuesday to feed the hungry in the KC Community. The event was Lift Up America, the 14th year the team has supported the event. Four KC Chiefs players on their day off joined 26 SCA players in loading donations into agency vehicles. A total of 30,000 pounds of protein donated by Tyson foods went to area food pantries, church ministries and others. 

What I REID Into It: November 4, 2017

As the NFL season wears on, every game seems to get bigger. That's the case here for the Chiefs as they head south to play the Dallas Cowboys. Everything seems to be bigger in Dallas, thanks to the new AT&T Stadium built by team owner Jerry Jones. The largest scoreboard in the NFL sits inside the stadium where the team has made big headlines so far in 2017.

Two KC Chiefs Hall of Fame Members Recognized Before Monday Night Football Game

The Kansas City Chiefs set aside one weekend per season as "Alumni Weekend.” For three days, former KC Chiefs players get together for a golf game. They socialize and talk about old times before finishing with a game, where an ex Chief is inducted into the team's Hall of Fame. 

This year, the Chiefs added even more fun to the 3-day weekend for all the former Chiefs by officially naming the KC Chiefs television booth inside Arrowhead Stadium in honor of pro football hall of fame QB Len Dawson. Dawson played for the KC Chiefs from 1963-75. Then Dawson began his broadcasting career in 1966 at KMBC TV 9. Later Dawson would hold a number of broadcast roles at HBO's “Inside the NFL,” NBC Sports before ending with a 33 year run on the Chiefs Radio network.

Rockhurst at Lee's Summit West (Friday Night Lights Tour Stop)

It's 2016 all over again as this match-up was also a district semi-final game last post-season. Rockhurst is once again playing well at the end of the year and comes in at 7-3. Last week the Hawklets beat LS North 7-0. That stingy defense will be on display again as they try to contain the LS West speed. In what will be a close and memorable playoff game, Rockhurst will repeat the 2016 result with a victory at LS West. 

Meet A Maverick: Jordan Kwas #22

A new season of Mavericks hockey always means a few new faces in the locker room, and new names for fans to learn. The 2017-18 season is now underway and, with it, newcomers who are getting familiar with Missouri. 

One of the new additions for this season is Forward Jordan Kwas, #22.

New Team Name, New Team Affiliations & A New Division - What Mavericks Fans Need to Know

Mavericks hockey fans are used to seeing changes when a new season begins, and the 2017-18 campaign will be no different. 

Last year the Mavericks moved to the ECHL's Mountain Division and introduced a new head coach in John Scott-Dickson. This year the Mavericks began making changes on June 1, when they changed the team name from Missouri to Kansas City. Later in the off-season, the team announced new AHL & NHL affiliations. The Mavericks are now affiliated with the Stockton Heat of the AHL and Calgary Flames of the NHL.

More changes came when the ECHL league meetings convened, and one of the results was changes to the leagues divisions. The KC Mavericks will now compete in the Central Division against teams like Cincinnati, Indy and Quad City. The Mavericks nearest rivals, Wichita and Tulsa, were moved out of the Central division during the off-season.

Lee's Summit at Joplin (Llywelyn's Pub Pick of the Week)

Fresh off wins against Ray Pec & LS West, the Tigers are growling at the right time of the year. Winners of 2 games straight and 4-5 overall, can they keep the good times going in the district playoffs at Joplin?  Joplin is the #3 seed and finished a quiet 7-2 regular season last week. The Tigers scored an upset last week here in Lee's Summit. This week they will travel further to score another one, this time in Southwest Missouri. 

What I REID Into It: October 21, 2017

One of the most fun things you can say to a Kansas City Chiefs fan during the season are the words "It's Raiders Week.” When the words are spoken after a tough home loss, it's even better. The Chiefs undefeated run through the 2017 season ended on Sunday night, but the attention of the team quickly turned to Thursday's road game at Oakland.

Lee’s Summit Native Living Out His Dream in the NFL

Many fans enter an NFL stadium on game day and look forward to the clapping, stomping, high-fiving, hollering and shouting that will soon follow. For one Lee’s Summit native, add running onto the field, rappelling and jogging around the concourse to the list, while getting paid. That native is Andrew Johnson, who serves as Toro, the Houston Texans mascot.
