View Full Version : Since the day the schedule came out all I have thought about was Christmas day

I've made it known to all of my family that all I wanted for Christmas was to be at the raiduh game. I was going to go to Kansas City and spend Christmas with my grandparents while my immediate family probably stayed in Texas. Even with the losing season I have still wanted to go to that game.

And part of me still wants to, part of me feels like I am giving up on my team. Truth be told, if I lived closer than thirteen hours away I would probably still try and go (and may yet if my friends have already purchased the tickets), but I am not driving all that way, spending all that money, and be away from my family on Christmas to watch my team play shitty football against my most hated rival. Screw that. It would be one thing if they had a losing record while playing decent ball, I'd still make the trip in that case. But this team is just imploding play after play, drive after drive, quarter after quarter, game after game. They are not playing anything even remotely resembling football, they are sitting out on the field jacking off. Their heads are not in the game, they make error after error..... I just can't take it any more, I have had my fill. I almost felt like crying after watching the game end on a Trent Green sack for the third straight week in a row last night, even though I had resigned myself to the season being over last week, last night was still a bitter pill to swallow. Watching your team play like complete crap on a national stage.....

Anyway, unless my ticket has already been purchased, I'll stay in Texas with my family for Christmas. And I keep telling myself that since they are the only reason I am not going, I am not really walking away from my team during this horrid season. Yet, I still feel a little guilty; perhaps in my subconscience, I have abandoned them....

But, I might be sitting all by myself.

Eh. Beating the focking Raiders will make up for this horrible season just a wee bit. Hell, maybe we can blow them out. They certainly suck enough.

I feel your pain,,we were going home at xmas to see family and attend the raiders game,,now he says no its a waste of money they aren't going anywhere. I guess I wasn't looking forward to sitting in the cold anyway,,,so the plans have changed and I will be in St Joe Dec 18-22 if anyone wants to meet me and my girlfriends for a drink and watch the game with the donkeys.:( Send me a pm if you wanna meet up. And yes the 12 to 14 hour drive does suck.

Houston, New Orleans, Carolina (though, who knew at the time), and Tampa Bay have my hopes a little low in regard to that.

Wait a minute, let me get this straight, you are going to be in KC for Christmas, but not attending the game? WTF? If I am in KC I am at that game.

I just have little incentive at this point to be in KC (though I love it there during the holiday season).

I do not miss the snow one little bit, or the cold. I will make myself clearer, my other half is not a chiefs fan at all. I can go to the game if I want but he and my girlfriends who attend games all the time do not want to go. And as he will be playing cards all weekend and drinking he will need me to taxi him around. One of the problems with going back home is you have to stop by and see EVERYBODY you know or they think you hate them so I guess I wouldn't have time.:banghead: I don't want to go by myself, and if I did what fun would that be,,, my sons are not chiefs fans either so they won't go with me. I will just sit with friends and party and watch the game on tv and hope for a win.:thumb:

I've only got one more game to go to. The Broncos game. The other 2 games i'll be out of town for, unfortunately.

I don't care if the Chiefs are 13-3 or 3-13..Arrowhead still rules.

chiefs4me
11-23-2004, 12:56 PM
Yes it does rule,,,and thank god I have been to over a 100 games in my lifetime so far, so its not like I have never been. Have fun at the game!

Yes, Arrowhead rules. No doubt about that. But on several occasions this season, it has really sucked to come out of there depressed and disgusted about my team's performance.
Jamie, I don't blame you one bit. I'm sick of sitting there and watching crap football being played by the Chiefs. I'm actually relieved that last night was my last game this season. I'm a huge Chiefs fan and have been for the past 14 or so years since I started watching pro football. But I'll be damned if I'm gonna drive even an hour to sit in the cold, pay ridiculous $20 to park, pay ridiculous prices for concessions($6.50 beer), only to watch my Chiefs blow it yet again. I'll still watch them on TV and cheer for them, though.

I really didn't mind the loss. After the Tampa Bay game, its become somewhat comical. Everytime the Chiefs defense gave up a big play, I couldn't help but laugh at them. I still cheered when they made good plays, yelled when the crowd got loud, but I knew for basically the entire game they were going to lose, just like the New Orleans game.

Tip: Develop a low expectation, and don't emotionally invest yourself. I was disgusted and depressed after the first 8 games. Now i'm just apathetic. I could care less if they win or lose. I'll still have fun rooting for them though.

You know, I'm willing to pay the ridiculous prices, I'm willing to make a long drive, I'm willing to sit there and watch them play "football" and embarass me on national tv by losing to the radiers. I am not, however, willing to do that if it means being away from my family on Christmas.

And as previously stated, there could be caveats to this, if I was say 8 hours away instead of 13 or if we were at least playing decent ball and losing because the other teams out played our best efforts. Either of these two situations and this does not get posted today. But the combination of things just leaves me with a stronger desire to be with the family than to be with the team (that's probably the way it should be anyway, eh...).

You have issues. But this was already known, Mr. I'm a K-State AND a KU fan.

Hey, i'm in good spirits, and apparently you are not. I realize this team is not going to give me anymore, so I hope they can finish up the season with some pride, develop some young players, and get a good draft pick. I do not expect them to win. That expectation was killed a few weeks ago.

We obviously have different expectations.

I thought we had a shot last night before the game. But it was the same old thing for this season. Now that we have that 7th loss though, I recognize that the season is over for us. I actually hope we lose a few more just to improve our drafting position. The worst thing to happen now would be to win out and get a low pick with no playoffs (not like we haven't been there before :rolleyes: ).

So the rest of this year will be spent watching and having fun but without the expectations for a win. This will certainly make it easier on my psyche!

I just got off the phone with my friend, and they have not yet purchased the tickets, so I told him not to get one for me.

Soooo, barring some unforseen circumstance, I shant grace Kansas City with my presence this Christmas.

This has become a delima for me. It's 3 hours(maybe a little less) to Arrowhead from my home and I have 4 tickets. The wife had concented to go but if the Chiefs keep stinking up the joint I not sure I wanna sacrafice Christmas Day with family. And also with the game starting at 4:00 it's gonna have to be an overnighter and that sucks for Christmas Night. Kickin' back and watching the Chiefs with my belly full of Chicken & Dumplings, Sweet Potatoes, Turkey and dressing with the fireplace aglow sounds awfully nice though. It was a tough decision to go anyway but now it's gotten even tougher.

If you're in Houston you can probably catch a flight and be in KC before me. In my case I've missed 2 regular season home games in the last three years so if I do decide not to attend it won't kill me. I'm still undecided right now.
