I was well prepared.

It really isn't too windy at Arrowhead. With all the people around you, and the way the stadium is set up, it doesn't get too windy.

You are probably skinny. I've got a nice layer of fat on me, that keeps me warm.

I sit on the shade side. It was cold, but it wasn't noticeable since the game was always in doubt. The guy in front of me and his girlfriend, however, have to be feeling it today. They were too drunk to notice, but they wore far too litle. The guy had nothing on his head, and his ears were purple on the edges...

It was so cold, when I pissed it turned into a big pisscicle that I had to break off. Some guy in front of us had no shirt and his body painted. He did have gloves and a gayazz looking hat. He only lasted til the third quarter-he is probably in the hospital today.

I was in the east end zone in the upper level, and it was ok until the 3rd-4th, it seemed to get windier and when the sun went down it was COLD. I got plenty of wind where I was sitting.

No, it isn't usually windy at Arrowhead. Maybe because the playing field is below ground level. Those in the lower level actually walk down to their seats. I wonder how many other playing fields are below ground. That is a really good idea I think.

Yeah, I can see how the upper decks would get the wind. They are above ground.

Cochise

Yeah, if you've never been there, the concourse around the lower level is a little below ground. Ground level outside might be the lower part of the club level inside or thereabouts.

Can you imagine how tall it would be if the field was @ ground level?

I was under the impression that every ballpark/stadium was built with the playing surface below ground level. I've only been to 3-the two ballparks in Baltimore and the Vet-and they were all that way.

I had on 3 pairs of socks, some winter boots, gloves, sweatpants under some jeans, 2 long sleeve t-shirts under a sweater under a jersey under a coat with a hood and a stocking cap on top of that...not even my pure rage yelling at shit talking Bronco fans kept me warm.

Then again, I was sitting in the surface of Jupiter seats (317, row 43) and was getting raped on two sides by wind.

Still, I instantly felt about 20 degrees warmer after the win.

Most football fields run north and south. Presumably because the prevailing winds blow north-south. An east-west field would be subject to cross winds. Not good for passing a football. But Arrowhead calls their endzones east and west. They really aren't. While I was a season ticket holder (a REAL fan), I never could get my bearings in that stadium. So I took a compass with me one time. The stadium actually runs SW to NE. The tunnel end is the SW endzone. Anytime I see a picture or TV shot of Arrowhead, I look for the tunnel to get my bearings. The tunnel is also on the Chiefs side of the field. The main TV camera shots are from the Chiefs (tunnel) side of the field. Without the tunnel, I can't tell one side of the stadium from the other. Oh, also, Tony DiPardo's little bandstand is on the tunnel end of the stadium. That helps sometimes. Also, I think the club level (gold seats) only run along the tunnel end and not around the entire stadium. This is all from memory and I haven't been in Arrowhead in almost 20 years. I hope they haven't moved anything. If I've got anything wrong, please feel free to correct me. In 1987, the concourses were plenty wide enough and there were plenty of restrooms. But they rarely had "crowds" of more than 20,000 people. THANK YOU JACK STEADMAN AND JIM SCHAAF.

Absolutely. My feet would constantly keep me from enjoying games in Nov, Dec, Jan when I was a season ticket holder. One year an opposing fan sitting next to me, suggested that I sneak a small square of carpet in and put it under my feet. Worked like a charm. Would sneak it through by placing it in the back of my coat.

Keeping that small distance between your feet and that cold concrete worked wonders. Also kept a pair of socks in my jacket. Changed my socks at halftime. Never had a problem again.

Also, when LJ took himself out for that crucial 3rd and 1, they showed him on the bench huffing and puffing. You could see the steam with every breath he took. He was gassed. I always laugh when folks try to tell us about certain plays because "they were there". You can see much more of the game on TV than you can by being there.

I was happy I didn't havta use a cooler. But yes it cold near the end of the game. I'm just glad it wasn't too windy, though my seats were in section 108. I bet it was 100x colder in the 300 seats.

Wrap your feet with newspaper, it looks dumber than shit but it works better than almost anything. Newspaper is a good insulator.

Me too. I was in section 122, row 15. It wasn't bad as long as the guy standing on my right was there. I think they spent most of their time in line to buy beer or in the bathroom (I would assume by the beer they drank). I marched in place every few minutes to make sure I still had feet...lol. Perfect football weather! By the 4th quarter, I think I forgot to be cold. A lot of exciting moments. I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!

usually, when I go to winter games, I have to sit waaaaay up in the corner- on Sunday, I got Jazzzlovr's seat which was in the front row, so it was nice and warm. The people next to me were cold and wondering why I wouldn't put my hat on, but I was prepared for much cooler climate and wind, so I was actually pretty warm right up until the 4th quarter when my feet started to get cold, so I started jumping some more, and then I was fine.

I was in west endzone (334); was in the shade early and it was cold. I was prepped, but my buddy (a stinkin' DONK fan) next to me was freezing his butt off. I waited until the 4th to give him a couple of hand-warmers I wasn't using; he was blue by then and stopped running his pie-hole.

It was chilly at first during the tailgating, but once I put on that beer coat I was good to go the rest of the day. However, Monday morning I was feeling the effects of the wind and cold on my face. It was well worth it though to watch all of the Donks' fans lower their heads in embarassment at the 2 minute warning as we made fun of their cheating team.

No wonder. Dad was looking for Jazzz, so he could introduce us. He said the her and I could be twins. He looked for her through out the game, but never saw her. Now I know why. I was 15 rows above ya.

To each his own. When I used to go to every home game I would go home and watch the tape. I saw lots and lots of stuff that I hadn't seen at the game. You just can't watch everything like the cameras can.

You are right about bench close ups and all the coach shots you can handle. Sometimes you get a view of holding that isn't as obvious from afar. THe game itself as it plays out from the snap is best seen live IMO.

Kotter and I sat in section 314 - the shady section. It was bearable up until the second half, and then it was freakin' freezing.

But, like someone said earlier, it was plenty warm after the 4th and 1 stop. Even warmer when the Donks fans started slinking out.

Naw..good clothing. Really, if you are well prepared, its not bad. The key to staying warm is your feet, your hands, and your head. You can layer your clothes all you want but it won't meet shit if your feet are cold.Lamb skin boots with 2 pairs of wool socks. Feet will be toasty as long as they stay dry.
