Arrowhead Addict, at times, can be a pretty testosterone-driven site. Since we know we have some female readers out there, we wanted to link one of our favorite female sportsbloggers’ blogs and its preview of the Chiefs. Here’s what Margee over at SportSquee had to say about our beloved Red and Gold:
Why You Should Root For Them: The Chiefs have a fanatical following in Kansas City, where everyone wears red on Sundays and businesses shut down during football games. That kind of atmosphere and community is hard to resist as a football fan. Additionally, the Chiefs have tight end Tony Gonzalez, who, in addition to supporting a vegan lifestyle, is one of the games most charitable souls when it comes to volunteer work and monetary contributions.
Why You Shouldn’t Root For Them: The Chiefs are coached by Herm Edwards, the Ray Nagin of the New York Jets. While I believe that the Jets are better off with Eric Mangini, I loathe Edwards for the way he fled the team while it was in ruins, in the middle of his contract, and following weeks of public reassurance that he wouldn’t give up on the flailing team. And his earnest persona as the island of moral character in the NFL is a joke.
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this part:
Potential Boyfriends: Tony Gonzalez, Larry Johnson, Dwayne Bowe, Glenn Dorsey
Hey, if us dudes can cut up cheerleaders, Kelli Croyle, October Gonzalez and Rachael “I’m Staring at the Teleprompter, Everybody Else is Staring at My Boobs” the Fantasy Sports Girl, then the ladies need to be able to do the same with the players. Totally down with that. I must admit, however, I was a little surprised to see Swamp Thing on her list. More pushin’ for the cushion, I suppose. Go check out her site for the full preview.
