Thanks for the response Dr Red. To be honest, I deleted the original content after no response. Sorry about that, it was kind of emotional. It was a dedication to life, my love of Chiefs football, and the memory of my late father. But most of all, it was about counting our blessings.

Don't give up too quickly, there isn't much activity on the board today.

Forever a Chiefs Fan

Remember Joe Delaney?
Some of us do and are acting on our belief that he was a hero.
This is a bandwagon that all are invited to jump on!!!

Dammit, Dan - I wasn't finished reading it. I dropped by this morning but didn't have too long. I started reading your post but didn't finish. Now I'm back to finish reading it and you've removed it.... I'd really like to see the whole thing!

Sorry everyone,

I cleared this post last night but I got caught up in the moment. Tuesday will be ten years since my father passed on. Being a Chiefs fan means a lot to me but I do try to put things in perspective. After I read my post I got to thinking that my dad missed the best decade the Chiefs have probably ever had. I know we didn't win a Superbowl, but we enjoyed a very successful run through the decade. We all can be proud of that. It just kind of got to me last night when I got to thinking how he used to console me all those years we went through the bad times only for him to miss the good times. Even when we had our low moments in the 90's, I would remember how he would put it all in perspective for me. That was enough to get me through the next game or year.

KPhobia, you were right the post was very long, probably too long. Maybe I can do a condensed version sometime.

Go Chiefs,

Your Dad didn't miss the Chiefs best decade and he didn't miss your topic you posted last night!

Sorry, lots of emotions tonight. I will erase it.

It's cool, Dan. Please just don't assume negative. With me you can assume sarcastic but not to the point of being rude. Your father's passing obviously impacted you a great deal. I can tell he was a good person due to your fond memories of him. It sounds like you are carrying on his legacy. Now get back on your feet and get some animated graphics back on this board....

Hey Grand:

I'm sorry I missed your post. I'm kind of the nostalgic, schmaltzy type too. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the post.


09-02-2000, 09:44 PM
Thanks Guys,

Yeah it has impacted my life. This year it has affected me because I can't believe it has been ten years. I'm sure a lot of people can understand that. Since we were both Chiefs fan, I thought I would do something nice on here but I kind of screwed that up. I kind of made up for it on a later post that summed it up though.

I'm not good at sentimentality, but it does not mean that you should not post how you feel.

You all know I do post how I feel! http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/wink.gif

Feel free to share your thoughts...

I can certainly understand the nostalgic feelings you get. I lost my father when I was 4. I sometimes get melancholy when watching football, thinking of the games we could have shared over the years.
