If you are like me, and few are, the spectre of another Chiefs outing this weekend holds more trepidation than excitement. Now there are other ways to spend a nice Sunday in the fall.

I suggest "Shooting Anvils". This is a country thing. I have seen it done in Seward Nebraska (The 4th of July City) as they start the annual 4th of July celebration that is world famous. And it occurs in various places in Missouri.

So, for your viewing pleasure and as an alternative to seeing the Chiefs this Sunday....http://gizmodo.com/5386637/shooting-anvils-200-feet-in-the-air-is-as-bloody-crazy-as-it-sounds

Shooting anvils is as old as our country (and older). It's widespread wherever anvils were found.....everywhere. And they're glorious.

A lot of the blacksmith gatherings have had to eliminate the honorable event because the bean counter insurance people have no souls.

You sir are an educated well traveled and experienced hand if you know of such events. You will enjoy this I am sure.
