Congrats, KCJ

I'm reasonably sure you haven't been to a KC game at Arrowhead but is this your first game?

Leave plenty early for the game - driving in DC is a nightmare any day of the week, much less on a game day...

Congrats and enjoy yourself. ;)

Congratulations John

Unfortunately I am sure you will be torn as it appears your love of Marty and your predictions of eminent Redskins victory will tear at your desire to see your Chiefs.

In a way I would not want to be in your position, no matter who the opponent or what year it was, when I attended a Chiefs game I always believed my Chiefs would win. You obviously will not be in that position and that is just sad.

Enjoy the game, hopefully you will have to suffer for Marty and the loss of face over your predictions.

I'm assuming your friend is a season ticket holder at Fed-Ex stadium. Last time I'd checked general tickets for the Redskins don't go on sale until July.

Have fun cheering for Marty.

06-09-2001, 03:27 PM
NO, I'm cheering for Marty...I'm cheering for Donnell Bennett! :p :D

I'm cheering for the Chiefs all the way but it will be an emotional day, seeing the coach I loved all those years with another team and the Chiefs I love populated by a bunch of Ra..., er, new personnel.

I will provide in depth on the spot analysis ( wish!).

Yes, this is my first Chiefs game. I have visited Arrowhead twice during the off season while moving across I-70 relocating my family.

How did you feel when the Chiefs played the Browns in the 90s?

I'll be that was an emotional time for you also, eh?

Congratulations, Chaplain.

Have a great time.

Will watch for the parachute drop at halftime.

Who cares?

Thanks for the well wishes, guys.
All you guys who made cracks about Marty...

My congratulations were real, and no where in my post did I suggest you would not be rooting for the Chiefs. I was just suggesting it would lower my enjoyment if I had a personal stake in the Chiefs losing and in having such a strong positive feeling about the opposition.

I really do hope you enjoy the game, and I really hope you are wrong in your faith in Marty, Donnell, and the Redskins victory.

Assuming that the crowd there is <B>NOT</B> like Oakland, maybe you can get on TV with a big sign...something like:


with a paratrooper (wearing a Chiefs helmet) next to it saying "Death From Above!"

I think CBS is televising it?

I'll tape the game, and if you show up, I'll send you a copy.

He'll be easy to spot.

A pullover sweater (with the initials RBBC on it), square framed glasses, short strawberry blonde hair, and a book of Martyisms in his back pocket to recite during television commercials.

When the Chiefs have the ball, look for the crowd shot of Proctor holding up a Dick Vermeil voodoo doll with multiple needles sticking in it.

If and when I get my tickets, I'll certainly be bringing stuff to annoy the Deadskin fans around here. I'll be the guy with the Derrick Thomas jersey who's probably either pummelling or getting pummelled by the guy wearing the half Chiefs/half Redskin jersey....:D

Sorry, John, just pickin' on you. ;)

06-12-2001, 09:12 AM

I'm going to that game too. Maybe we could share in a suds before the game.

I'll promise not to bring up the stooges if you don't throw any Marty or RBBC stats at me. ;)

06-13-2001, 03:25 PM
LOL< Cal Injun and W5!

That might be a good idea to make the CBS sign. Gotta think about that one. I guess I'll be safe as long as I don't have a sign that says GOPAC or Go GOP (Washington the land of democrats).

In all honesty, I want the Chiefs to win. But man, it sure would shut up a lot of my critics if Marty's Skins were good this year. What I can't figure out is how so many writers are picking the Skins to improve while condemning the Chiefs as bottom feeders. Not that I put any stock in their predictions.

I have no love for Jeff George. That helps me to see this game logically (Hi, Jim!) and root for a Chiefs victory.
