The Morning Fix: Super Bowl Sunday Edition!

It’s Super Bowl Sunday Addicts! Sure, another year is tainted by the fact that our beloved Kansas City Chiefs aren’t participating in the big game but to be honest, if they were, I’d probably have a tough time enjoying it. I’d be so dog gone nervous all day long my hair would be falling out in clumps. Today, all I’m worried about is making sure I have enough beer and wings for when my buddies get here. Yes I’d rather be freaking out because the Chiefs were playing but life isn’t perfect.

But Super Bowl Sunday is about ass close to a perfect day as I can think of.

After the jump I’ve got a bit of Chiefs related news for you. Later on today we’ll have our official staff picks for the game tonight and some other Super Bowl related posts.

Until then, here’s your Morning Fix!

Kimble Anders, a former Chiefs running back who is now the athletic director of the Kansas City School District, said it’s a mistake to save money at the expense of safety.

“It is a touchy situation. We had to make a decision,” he said. “I don’t think we can go without getting them reconditioned every year. The game has changed too much. It’s essential.”

On the day of the NFL vs. AFL Championship Game, Harlan decided to go to the Los Angeles Coliseum to watch the Kansas City Chiefs tackle legendary coach Vince Lombardi and his Green Bay Packers.

Tickets were not a problem. Harlan simply walked to the Coliseum ticket window and purchased a ticket for approximately $10. He also bought a program for 50 cents.

Dimitri Nance also spent draft day nervously waiting…. and waiting. The San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs had expressed interest in the Arizona State running back. As a high school senior Nance rushed for more than 3,000 yards and scored 41 touchdowns, leading Trinity to its first state championship.

Throughout draft day Nance kept his cellphone in hand but never got the call he hoped to receive. His fortunes unexpectedly changed in September. Green Bay signed Nance off the Atlanta Falcons’ practice squad after Packers running back Ryan Grant sustained a season-ending ankle injury in the opening game.
