Is anyone off of here going? If you've been before, what was it like? Would it be worth driving up from Springfield?


Sorry if repost.

The tickets are free, so they'll probably be selling everything under the sun in there.

It's not for everyone but it's worth the price of admission for the family, IMO. If they'd open the gates earlier for the full tailgate experience I'd be more excited about it. I've been the past two years. The first year I was hanging out with a 3 year old kid who was sitting nearby with his mother by the end of practice. Last year I was napping. It's like, uh, watching football players practice so there's not a whole lot of entertainment value - unless you really enjoy watching football practice.

I wouldn't drive from Springfield to watch it.
No pads, no real contact, Holthus doing a cheesy announcer deal....
...and this is coming from a guy who drives to River Falls yearly to watch practice.

Imagine 2 hours of pre-game warm-ups.

Eh. I would go more for some Arrowhead photo ops and the chance to snag some signatures anyway. It's over early enough that I could do some other stuff before heading home. I'm really wanting to go, but I'm not 100% on whether I will.

The first year DJ was playing, LJ got a toss and ran to the outside only to run smack into Derrick. Larry lowered his shoulder and so did Derrick. Derrick stood him up.

I've been the past two seasons.
I'm planning to go again this year.

If you're a die-hard Chiefs fans I think it'll be right up your alley. Especially to see the draftees.

The WR/CB battles are always good.

That doesn't sound like pregame warmups to me.

Sure it does. There's no tackling or anything.

I don't want to discourage you from coming, I just don't want anybody to expect anything it's not. I'm as big a football fan as anyone and I'll probably go to it again this year but it's pretty boring. I wouldn't want to drive any further than an hour or so....

We drove five hours to see the last two. But my grandpa lives there and my father grew up there. So we visit the family also.

You can never go wrong by practicing proper tailgating technique. :D

I've driven to KC for lesser things. Still undecided, but definitely leaning towards going. It's a road trip, and it's something to do for free. Of course, the cost of gas makes up for that.

Mainly just checking to see who all I might have the opportunity to bump into while I'm there.

I kept my eyes on secondary drills because I was so hyped on Ty Law.

It's amazing how fast they are when you're up there in person watching them work out.

It worth a drive unless you have something better to do. I enjoyed the ones I've gone to though I did get burned to a crisp at one...
