Patrick Allen is a fanatical Kansas City Chiefs fan.
The Brooklyn, N.Y. resident has been hooked since Joe Montana signed in 1993. He is the senior editor for a Chiefs blog, Arrowhead Addict. He helped turn a Manhattan bar, The Village Pourhouse, into a Chiefs bar.
Not exactly the type of person the Chargers would actively want at a home game — at least, he thought.
Then, the email came.
Last week, a Chargers ticket sales representative invited Allen to “come down” to Qualcomm Stadium on Nov. 1 when the team hosts the Chiefs. He can bring a whole group of Arrowhead Addict friends over — at least 14 others — and see savings of up to $10 a ticket.
Yes. The Chargers sought out rival fans to come to their stadium.
