My team is the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS! This first post is intentionally long...patience please, I'm introducing my Chiefs blood, no short cuts! :)
I was 'almost' born with red & gold blood, haha. My dad (RIP) became a Chiefs fan when they moved to KC in 1963 from Dallas, formerly the Dallas Texans. I remember in grade school dad watching a rare game or two aired on TV...Chiefs were AFL, no NFL as we know it today, not many games aired on TV.
Dad began giving me red & gold blood transfusions from 1963 on, by the time I was an adult red & gold was in my veins! haha He'd be very proud, seeing how I've carried on our Chiefs family bloodline! I've passed our red & gold blood down to my own daughter & son...now passing it down to my 10 yr old grandson & 4 yr old grand-daughter.
No lie...one of the first words my grandson spoke was "TADON"!...aka 'touchdown'. He would throw his arms in the air making the the TD signal at the same time!
When Brennen, grandson, was 5...his paternal grandma, not knowing much about NFL, rivalries, etc....bought him an Oakand Raiders shirt at a garage sale! His mom, my daughter, found the shirt stuffed in the garbage can, hidden, but she noticed a sleeve. When she questioned Brennen he said he didn't want to hurt his grandma's feelings, so he accepted the shirt & later hid it in the trash thinking no one would miss it...he wasn't about to wear it, lol. He told his mom, "the Raiders are BAD, we don't like them, just ask Nana!"...Nana would be 'me'...OOPS!
I sorta remember Super Bowl I, NFL Green Bay Packers vs AFL Chiefs...Chiefs lost.
By 1970 the merger between the NFL & AFL was nearing completion. The Chiefs made it to Super Bowl IV, played the Minnesota Vikings. Chiefs were the underdog, but they WON!! Sadly, for me & my Kid Rock friend Ricky, a Vikings fan & member here at KRC too...that was the last Super Bowl appearance for either of our teams to date. I've not given up hope...thinking God will allow me to witness my Chiefs making it to another SB before I have to watch from above, haha.
Now if I don't witness a Chiefs SB prior to leaving Earth...I fully intend to ask God when I meet up with him, to toss a hail stone or two at Chiefs GM Peterson, hopefully knocking some sense into the man! haha Wait...Peterson is older than me, I 'think'...he might not be on Earth by then either, haha. Oh well...I'm not sure I have that much pull with God anyway, lol.
I hold GM Peterson mostly responsible for the Chiefs not making it to a SB since 1970! He's been the Chiefs GM for 20 yrs...lots of great potential came & went, thanks to Peterson they went. Butthole traded the best linebacker we've seen since Derrick Thomas (RIP)! The good news...at least Jared Allan went to my friend Ricky's Vikings team, haha. Vike's very likely could be SB bound as a result, yeah, JD is that good! I guess you could call it Karma, since we beat the Vikes in SB IV. Karma for JD too...since Peterson treated him badly overall. I'd like to see JD with SB Ring on hand...shake Peterson's Super Bowl-less hand, thanking him for letting him go!
So...let's hear your story of your fav NFL team? Or not...you can just tell us who your fav team is too, haha.
