Time for Kansas City Chiefs Fans To Get Serious!

Whoohoo Skippy!

I will be the first to admit it, Addicts. Your Arrowhead Adventurer gets goosebumps just thinking about this time of  year.

Every team in the NFL is tied.

It’s a fresh new start.

Our fresh new start includes the number one pick in the draft.

That’s never happened before.

That’s cool.

My job plotting the future of the Kansas City Chiefs officially started last night when the 2013 schedule was announced.

Many people are waiting for the tough decisions I shall make.

Lives will be affected.

For you see, it’s my job to decide when and who gets to use my second seat at good old Arrowhead.

Not only who, but when.

Of course I’ll review the loyalties exhibited by my crew during last season.

I’ll consider who cheerfully walked to the stadium with gladness in their heart, during one of the worst NFL seasons by my side.

And paid full price for their ticket.

They shall be rewarded with a prime seat in beautiful September weather.

Those who refused to pay full price for the ticket reserved for them, or worse, go at all, will suffer the wrath of a cold December afternoon at Arrowhead.

If they are lucky.

The worst offenders will be watching the games from their living room.

Oh well. It’s lonely at the top.

But my responsibility does not end there.

I’m in charge of plotting our draft picks and emailing Clark Hunt my decisions the night before draft day starts.

And draft day!

I lose sleep thinking about it.

I’ll change my mind on what I will be wearing to the draft party multiple times.

I’ll work late in order to make up for my early departure from work on that magic Thursday afternoon.

When I present my ticket to the smiling cheerleader at the practice facility door, I’ll walk in to a wonderous world of music, players, cheerleaders, concession food, beer, and of course the best NFL fans in the world.

I’ll mull over the discounted Kansas City Chiefs merchandise nobody wanted five seasons ago and load up.

I’ll inflate my importance to this site and to the world in general to the cheerleaders who pretend to be fascinated and invite me for a picture with them.

And I’ll breathlessly wait for the news on the big screen.

News that can change the future of the Kansas City Chiefs for years to come.

Yes next to opening day, it’s my favorite time of the no offseason year.

But it’s not all about me.

What do you have planned?

    I will be leaving Fort Worth for Las Vegas on Tuesday. Priming myself for an epic Thursday and Friday night in a sports book atmosphere. Leaving no doubt to what team I’m supporting. Then planning my trip to Arrowhead with my bother and a few others that despise the Cowboys to watch a The Chiefs start 2-0. My brother has never been to Arrowhead, so it’s going to be an experience of a lifetime!!!! GO CHIEFS!!!

  • Bigtexjayhawk

    I am in ftw too. We are looking at the MU vs AM and KC vs Donkeys weekend to go back. Havent been back to new arrowhead. Sick of going to Cowboys stadium. Cowboys fans are so weak.

    • Jarad

      Yea, it’s pathetic! Last time I was up to watch a game at Arrowhead was the SF game in 2010. Long overdue.

    • Jarad

      Where do you watch the Chiefs game around fort Worth?

      • Bigtexjayhawk

        Last year had no reason to watch. I watched KU at Reservoir off 7th st. Pretty cool place

        • Jarad

          Yea, it was the worst of years. Reservoir is a cool place. Nice setup. Not everybody puts the Chiefs on, but the Boston’s off 35 and Western Center has it on every Sunday. My best friend is the bartender there, so that’s a perk too.

  • ArrowFan

    I’m glad you are excited about a #1 over all pick being a LT, the atmosphere you will be in will probably help with that a little. I hope I can start feeling it before the pick but I’m not now. Maybe when our rookie pancakes someone on Sunday I will get excited.

    • Jarad

      I’m excited because Reid and Dorsey have already done more to help this team than I had ever expected in such short time. Now it’s time for them to hand pick any player they want in the draft. They have surprised the fan base a few times already. Who knows what the NFL DRAFT has in store.

      • Arrowhead Adventurer

        Who knows indeed? It’s exciting!

  • Jacob Monteer

    I’ve been serious for 20 years. It’s time for them to get serious.

  • KCMikeG

    Help me Randy! I am in desperate need of a ticket for the Season Ticket Holders Draft Day Party. Please let me know if anyone can help me find one. Thanks!

    I know what you mean about fair weather fans. I had trouble finding anyone last year as the year concluded. Donated some ticket to charity although my CPA debated the value I stated on the deduction. This year will make us forget 2012.

  • Canad-Ian

    That’s it, I’ve had enough. I’m flying from stupid Canada, land of Cory Greenwood and Casey Printers, to Arrowhead to watch my first Chiefs game live. Who’s selling tickets?

  • Jim Harper

    Is it too late to just get tickets at the door? and do you have to be a season ticket holder
