The Chiefs-Cowboys game has a traveling trophy on the line

When the Chiefs and Cowboys take the field this weekend at Arrowhead stadium they’ll be playing for a trophy. It’s not the Super Bowl trophy but it does have a special place in Chiefs history. The Preston Road Trophy was made by Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt in 1998.

Lamar Hunt and Jerry Jones (Cowboys owner) lived across the street from each other on Preston Road, hence the name of the trophy. The winner of each matchup keeps the trophy until the next game is played. The Chiefs won the first Preston Road Trophy back in 1998 with a victory over the Cowboys at Arrowhead Stadium.

Currently the trophy resides with Jerry Jones and the Cowboys. The Chiefs will be bringing it back to Arrowhead where it belongs this weekend. Lets Go Chiefs!!!

Where are people finding morel mushrooms in KS and MO

It’s that time of year again! Spring has sprung and people from across Missouri and Kansas are hunting for morel mushrooms. Some have been reporting great results this season.

Morels like it when it starts to get around 60 degrees and above during the day, and night temperatures hover around 40 degrees. Morels start popping up when the earth gets between 45 and 50 degrees.

If you have never been morel hunting before, it’s a great way to get some exercise and spend some time in nature. Not to mention the delicious recipes you can find using morels.

If you’re a beginner, this interactive map is a great tool to show you where sightings have been reported. The website also has some great tips and info for a successful trip.
