Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Dude, in Los Angeles. The dude I'm talking about is from Kansas City and we know his as Mike Catapano.
Here we go again. When news spread Monday afternoon that Chiefs Tight End, Tony Moeaki, fractured his shoulder, one has to wonder if we’ve seen the last of the former Iowa Hawkeye in a KC uniform.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The question wasn't even fully asked before Eric Berry shut it down.
"I'm not talking about last year," the Pro Bowl safety said.
