9 Days Away!!!


We are now only 9 days away from the day that many of us have been waiting for (people like our friend Nanc). In a short 9 days the 2008 Kansas City Chiefs will suit up in Chicago for their first preseason game. Today I bought tickets for their first preseason home game against the Arizona Cardinals on August 16th. Many people shun the preseason and discount it but when you are at Arrowhead Stadium amongst the entire sea of red and the roaring crowd it is always an awesome experience. My wallet says that the preseason is A-OK by me. An ordinary home game is well over $100 for Kim and I to attend and sit in the farthest reaches of Arrowhead. During the preseason we can buy two tickets to sit on the 10 yard line and in the 8th row from the field for $40. This is all on account of people shunning and discounting the preseason. To those people I say a heartfelt "THANK YOU!!!"

Edge -- the Jaguars do look pretty good this year. Kansas City will be starting with a whole bunch of rookies so you'll have better luck with the Jags (though I hate to admit that)

Nanc -- I KNOW you're thrilled with the NFL season coming up and just trying to not go all geeky and giddy on us. Tough image to uphold and all.

Brooke -- it's here!

Hermit -- pro-football is about the only sport I get into. That and for some reason I've always loved the olympic games. This year's will be bittersweet.
