It’s a rivalry, that’s why.

I’m fairly certain I saw this guy in the stands last Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium.

Missouri and Kansas met on the field to play their 119th football game.  The MU KU rivalry is the second oldest in the nation and one of the best sports rivalries in all of college.  The rivalry is so heated that before Saturday the two schools couldn’t even agree on the overall record of the series. Both claim to have won in 1960, a year that Kansas won on the field but was told by the Big Eight Conference to forfeit for using an ineligible player. Kansas refuses to forfeit, claiming the conference action was political. So both Kansas and Missouri claim to have led in the long series 55-54-9.  Without question, Missouri now leads…Kansas really wasn’t very good at football this year and Missouri’s team is pretty solid.

I’ve got a lot of Kansas friends and a few of them that I actually like so I won’t rub the victory in, besides most of them don’t really care about football anyway, but basketball on the other hand…

 I do want to draw a parallel to sports and business and tomorrow’s blog will focus on why people are happier working some places as opposed to others. 

I subscribe to the Theory X, Theory Y belief and try to incorporate it in my leadership.  Come back tomorrow and learn all about it.
