The only people who give a flying fig for anything Kansas City are Kansas Citians.
El wrongo, Capitan! And a sad statement besides.
I meet people all the time (foooootball fans and non-fans alike) who are familiar with the Chiefs personalities including people like Stram. It's actually sort of strange, but Lenny Dawson is a pretty well-recognized name as are people like Buck Buchanan and Willie Lanier and Priest Holmes.
The problem is that we have sucked so long that we aren't on anyone's radar ... generally speaking.
But, KC has a song, a steak, and a jazz style. It isn't a complete freaking wasteland akin to someplace like Cleveland which is known solely for its Cleves, for crying out loud.
