It was also kind of weird, but Chiefs fans sure aren't complaining.

It's a good time to be a Kansas City Chiefs fan.

For starters, they did just, you know, watch their favorite team win the Super Bowl tonight. On top of that, it was the first time a team has won back-to-back Super Bowls in almost two decades. On top of that, it was the Chiefs' 3rd Super Bowl in five years, firmly cementing them as a modern dynasty. On top of that, their QB is already considered one of the best ever and is only 28 years old. And yet, considering all of that, would you believe me if I told you that tonight's 25-22 win over the 49ers gets better?

Because NFL fandom is nothing if not petty, Chiefs fans should be thrilled to learn that the guy to deliver them their Lombardi Trophy was none other than Broncos quarterback John Elway:

So, to recap: the Chiefs had a Broncos legend hand them the trophy after won their second straight Super Bowl in the Raiders stadium. I know they've been historically dominant in the AFC West over the last half decade or so, but this takes it to a new level. All they've got to do do now is find a way to troll the Chargers (which, tbh, feels pretty easy) and they'll have reached true AFC West nirvana. And if you can believe it, Broncos fans weren't taking it well. Everyone else kinda loved it though:

What's that expression about who the spoils go to? If the first hour was any indications, life's pretty good as the NFL's new dynasty.
