Chiefs Game

Today we got to go to the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Oakland Raiders. Now, I know some of you are thinking why - since we know how these teams are, but Tom was honored before the game as an Olympian, so we went. We actually had a great time. Our friends, the Janvrins, met us there and we got to do some pretty neat things...

Tom and Kinley on the sidelines before he was announced. If you look really close, you can see some of the Kansas City players warming up on the field. (The big guys in white pants and red jerseys)

A wrestler from Missouri that attended the University of Missouri, Tom and Christian Smith (800m ran for K-State) were the three Olympians out on the field. Here is Tom on the big screen when they were announcing him. I have to say he got the loudest cheers - might be because they said he was the first American decathlete to make 3 Olympic teams.

Oh, little bit fame - we got to see in person - American Idol David Cook sing the national anthem! Kinley did great with the "rockets red glare", but the "bombs bursting in air" was a little scary.

We finally made it to our seats, and Kinley had a great time going back and forth between Teresa and me. She did get into the game. She likes to clap with everyone and here she is yelling.

I love watching football and this was fun. I'm not going to go so far as to say this was a great game, but it was fun, and I'm thankful for the opportunities, like this one, that we have had.
