Locally, Kansas City Chiefs football is a second religion, and tailgating is embedded in its DNA.

On Sunday mornings, Chiefs fans don’t wake up and smell the coffee. They wake up to smell the ribs.

The tents, the jerseys, the drunk guy slurring “Whoaaa, livin’ on a prayer!” It’s a beautiful thing.

Austin Davis and the St. Louis Rams, the Chiefs, including Eric Berry and Christian Okoye, paid homage to their tailgating ticket holders.

In the video, Okoye notes, “Tailgating is awesome. People talk about barbecuing, tailgating. I think it actually started in Kansas City.” Maybe so. Maybe not. That’s up for debate. What’s not is that nobody does it better.

If you disagree, parking lot Pope would like two minutes for rebuttal.

(Parking lot Pope may or may not also be said Bon Jovi slurrer.)

Never change, Arrowhead.
