Whatever your opinion of preseason football, I think we all can agree. FOOTBALL IS HERE!
Opinions vary on what we may have learned last night, but the excitement on the field last night was undeniable.
If you live in the Kansas City area and have not been to a preseason football game, you need to go.
Tickets are cheap, and the weather is perfect for shorts and chest painting.
The enchanting smells of the world’s best BBQ wrap around the deep blasting bass of music to please all music tastes.
Regular readers of my posts have probably figured out that I am not the most analytical fan on this site.
I look for excitement. I look for intensity. I look for fun.
Last night I sure got plenty of it.
Long-time fans will know what I am talking about when I say it takes my breath away to see a coach like Andy Reid on our sidelines running the show. You have to go back to the Vermeil days to see anything close to that at Arrowhead.
And Alex Smith taking the snaps, a real quarterback with proven skill, how long has it been since we were able to enjoy the security of that? A long time, indeed.
Big picture: we know our team is not going to pack up and move to some far away venue, like so many other teams fans have to deal with. The Bills, the Raiders, the Rams, the Jags, to name a few. Whatever your analysis of those venue’s plights, it is a day-to-day worry for the locals.
One of my true pleasures is to watch a kickoff return become a score and last night we saw that again.
It was along dry spell between Hall and McCluster, but it appears we may see more of it with DAT MAMBA.
Get your jerseys out, drag out your tailgating gear, dust of the big screen.
Football in Kansas City is back. It is going to be one of the best seasons ever!
