Chiefs Observations From South of Arrowhead
I may not be a huge sports "fan" now- but it wasn't always that way.
Dad took us to a Chiefs game back in 1964.
Worked at Arrowhead- and then-Royals stadiums in the 1980's.
When we lived by Swope Park in the '60's- the Chiefs practice facility was across the 63rd Street bridge- about a mile away,
This was around the time of the first 'Super Bowl (It wasn't called that then)' and we swam in Chiefs paraphernalia and personally autographed photos and items.
Same with the old A's and the new Royals in baseball.
Two of my brothers and I took the Prospect bus and walked to attend the last doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox in 1967.
Two friends and I ditched school in April 1969 to see the Royals first game as a new team.
The love of Royals baseball brings floods of memories far too vast for this blog.
So now I'm full-circle back to the Chiefs.
Tonight we played a team that didn't score ANY touchdowns against our 2 and lost (steam comes from ears).
Well- we were West Division AFC champs I guess (gritting gums).
Mr. Kelce drew my ire earlier this year with his flag-throwing penalty.
After tonight's performance and tirade encore- Chiefs mgmt. should bid Kelce farewell.
