Chiefs news for Jan 19, 2023
Good morning, AG!
Today in Chiefs history, all we have at the moment is a Steve DeBerg birthday. Born in 1946. Edit: how quickly we forget. 2019, Titans @ Arrowhead. Come from behind, and we punch our ticket to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years.
Elsewhere, we start with a couple of deaths. 2013, Stan “The Man” Musial dies at 92. 2000, Austrian-born actress Hedy Lamarr, who was often typecast as a provocative femme fatale and later achieved recognition as a noted inventor of a radio communications device, dies in Florida.
1977: U.S. President Gerald Ford pardoned Iva Toguri D’Aquino (Tokyo Rose), a Japanese-American broadcaster from Japan to U.S. troops during World War II, who, after the war, was convicted of treason and served six years in a U.S. prison; mitigating information later raised questions about her guilt.
1955: U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower held the first-ever televised presidential press conference.
And let’s end with a couple of birthdays. Dolly Parton in 1946, and Janice Joplin in 1943. That’s right. Janice was older than Dolly. See what dying young will do for you?
