Good morning folks. Sorry I vanished last night. I had some internet issued when I got home from work. We’re back up and running today with your “Morning Fix.”
I hate it,” Brown said about the blackout. “I’ve been loving the Chiefs since the day I was born. I was born the day the Chiefs won the Super Bowl. No matter how bad or how good they’re doing, I’ll always be a Chiefs fan. They’ll get it back. It’s only going to get better.”
That period, which seems ongoing, has required Albert to pay more attention to details. His steps, hand placement and mental approach have been tested perhaps as never before. Albert had always been able to get by on being big and quick — and, the Chiefs believe, that was enough to overshadow the rough edges that have become visible since the weight loss.
