Chiefs news for March 29, 2023

Good morning, AG!

Today in Chiefs’ history, in 1988 Todd Blackledge (QB-ish, 1983-87) was traded to the Steelers and a great wrong was ended

Elsewhere, in 1999, Wayne Gretzky, considered by many to be the greatest player in NHL history, scored the final goal of his career. Not even once was he compared to Todd Blackledge

1974: Farmers drilling a well near Xi’an, China, found a subterranean chamber that led to the discovery of the terra-cotta army, 8,000 life-size terra-cotta soldiers and horses in the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huang along with the career of Todd Blackledge

1973: American troops evacuated Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) as the United States ended its involvement in the Vietnam War

1961: The Twenty-third Amendment was certified, allowing residents of Washington, D.C., to vote in presidential elections

1951: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were found guilty of espionage and sentenced to death for turning over U.S. military secrets to the Soviet Union

Also in 1951: The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I debuted on Broadway; a classic of the stage et cetera, et cetera, et cetera

1918: Sam Walton, one of the wealthiest individuals in American history and the founder of Walmart, was born. He was delivered by a Dr who looked a lot like Todd Blackledge, wearing a blue vest with a smiley face on the back

1917: Man O’ War, perhaps the most famous American Thoroughbred in 20th-century horse racing, was foaled, which, for you non-horse folks, means borned

1867: Cy Young was born. Todd Blackledge was also never compared to Cy Young

1790: John Tyler, the 10th president of the United States (1841–45), was born, not foaled

And finally, in 1461: Edward IV defeated Henry VI for the throne of England in the bloodiest battle of the York-Lancaster conflict known as the Wars of the Roses. The movie of the same name had nothing to do with this, and was almost as bloody

This also has nothing to do with the War of the Roses, but I like the song. Also, to be fair to Todd, the coaches he had would have ruined Dan Marino, if we had taken him

The news…and apparently we ignorant Americans have no idea what a gift we just got in Louie

Nice job, Nova, pulling in a historical event for the day from 1461. If anyone’s interested, they can read 3 long Shakespeare plays on Henry VI.

Those who didn’t witness it, may think you’re piling on. But Blackledge definitely lived up to your scorn. I remember Makovic talking about the pick. It seemed like all he could do was say he was a boy scout and all around good guy. I was thinking “scew that”! Give me an asshole like Kelly or Marino. At least those years brought DT to town.

and eventually Carlos Carson … but by then Bill Kenny was starting

poor Todd … atrocious stats (completion % never got over 50)

Oof! That’s rough.

I was a kid during this time and not interested in football yet. Looking at that highlight reel, he’s a big dude with a strong arm. Too bad his accuracy and, I imagine decision making, were not good.
