Chiefs news for Jan 27, 2023
Good morning, AG!
Today in Chiefs history, in 1993, the LA TIMES, looking for something to write about Super Bowl XXVII, ran this article about Jerrel Wilson and SB IV – https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1993-01-27-ss-2008-story.html Yeah, I got nothing right now.
Elsewhere, in 1973, the Vietnam War ended.
1967: During a simulation of a launch, U.S. astronauts Virgil I. Grissom, Edward H. White, and Roger B. Chaffee perished in a fire aboard Apollo 1.
1945: The Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz, Poland, was liberated by Soviet troops.
1880: American inventor Thomas Edison patented the incandescent lamp.
And in 1832: Mathematician and novelist Lewis Carroll, best remembered for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass (1871), was born in Daresbury, Cheshire, England. And so was one particular cat. (SWIDT?)

And it’s the part we can’t be certain we’ll see Sunday.
