Kansas City Chiefs Fans Take Over Airplane En Route To San Diego [Video]


Kansas City Chiefs fans have a unique ability to gel together and turn any setting into an audible ambush.

Exhibit A: On a flight to San Diego, Facebook reader Faith Escutia captured the moment that a Boeing evolved into a mobile madhouse.

Two things (aside from the deafening tomahawk chant) stand out.

First, judging by her demeanor, the stewardess is counting down the seconds until she’s allowed to make a mad dash toward the exit and kiss solid ground. Within 12 seconds, her body language changes from “Here’s your beverage, darling” to “Oh my god, I’m locked in a psych ward. Is this Con Air? Hail Mary, full of grace…”

Secondly, I’m never anti-Chiefs chant, but I feel for the guy in the window seat who’s clearly trying to summon miracles in the name of sleep. He’s not relaxing on a plane; he’s surviving a torture chamber. Every time the chant loops, his airline ticket ascends one more spot on his life’s list of regrets.

The ear-bleeding noise is one thing. But to hear “One more time!” before enduring another round, only to then be greeted with “I can’t hear you!” is a borderline hate crime. If that man would’ve sprung up and chucked packs of Planters said in voice’s vicinity, I wouldn’t judge.

It’s often said—so much so that the author is unknown—that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Judging by the above video, Chiefs fans do the same thing repeatedly and expect more of the same.

I don’t know what that means—probably that we’re all certifiable—but I’ve never been gladder that Arrowhead is roofless.
