Wow. What a difference a week can make. After looking absolutely HORRIBLE in an 0-3 start, my Chiefs actually looked like an NFL team today, taking their previously undefeated division rival behind the woodshed for a 33-19 whipping.
And my family and I were able to see it all from Row 26 of section 119…
Turns out the advice my buddy Tom and I gave the team in week 2 finally paid off!
Hard to believe, isn’t it? The 0-3 Chiefs beat the 3-0 Broncos, and somewhat soundly?
I won’t bother with analysis of any sort… after a 12 game regular season losing streak, it’s nice to just be able to enjoy a win for a change.
Hopefully this is a momentum builder. We’ll see next week.
Anyway, photos from the game will be forthcoming later. My 6 year old, Jeffrey, was behind the camera most of the day, and it will be VERY interesting to see what he found worth shooting! There’s no small selection to choose from, he’s a prolific photographer… 344 photos!

Yesterday, we attended our first geocaching event… the “Jesse James Cache Bash”!
Talk about a great time… loads of good food, fun caching games, some neat people, and yes… a TON of prizes.
While we didn’t do a great job documenting the event with photos (others have, so check that out here), we did get a few new ones of our kids.
Sure made for a fun day! We’re looking forward to next year’s event already!

After seeing last week’s debacle versus the Raiders, I didn’t think it could get much worse.
Then I watched the first half of this weeks’ game against the Falcons. The Chiefs were almost totally inept offensively, and our defense couldn’t seem to tackle or stop big plays. Ugly football, no matter how you look at it.
Thankfully, the second half wasn’t quite so bad. We moved the ball a bit… LJ got into a bit of a groove, and Thigpen figured out how to throw to the white jersies (I’m guessing he still thought we were in red). Even the defense improved… well, maybe a bit.
Notable from the game? Tony Gonzalez. What can you say, but the guy is awesome. Today, he hit 10,000 yards for the career… he’ll surely break the TE yardage record next week at home versus the Broncos. And how about LJ? A 100 yard game… running with emotion and power. Where’d that come from?
I’m still not sure what to think of this team though. Yeah, they’re young… I expect the offense to be bad with a very green offensive line and a third string starting QB. And the defense? Sure… you’d expect problems at times, but giving up so many big plays?
I’m just not so sure youth can really explain how bad this team looks at times.
Anyway, after a second horrific performance, I’m wondering how in the world we’ll find a win this year. We couldn’t beat the Raiders at home, and the Dolphins? Well, they just beat the snot out of the Patriots… IN FOXBORO.
It’s gonna be a LONG year.

Today, my beloved Kansas City Chiefs played the Raiders. Well, I say they played them, but I’m not entirely sure that it was the Kansas City Chiefs (or any other NFL team, for that matter) that actually showed up to play.
Bottom line… it was ugly. VERY ugly.
Since I was at the game today (BIG TIME props to my sister and brother-in-law… 6th row seats, baby!), I’ll summarize it with a few captioned photos.
Yes… Herm knows what I think. My friend Tom knows what I think (thanks for coming man, it was a blast even though the game stunk!). And a bunch of other Chiefs fans in section 116 know what I think.
We took a BIG step backwards today. If we play like this every week, we’ll be the first 0-16 team in NFL history.
Yes, it was THAT bad. Here’s hoping the Chiefs team that played in Foxboro last week shows up in Atlanta next Sunday.

You know, I’ve always wondered why there has been such opposition to “contemporary” worship, and yes, dancing, in Baptist churches.
These videos finally make it clear why.
