I’m really looking forward to the lightshow at halftime on Sunday. Should be awesome considering it will be 3:30 in the afternoon and bright and sunny. The donkeys right now are so utterly pathetic its amazing.

To be fair, I’ll bet it would have been really cool if they didn’t stink so bad that they got flexed. MC is probably right and we better not give them a ray of sunshine

Well, with Von Miller’s injury putting him out for the season, I’m not unhappy.

That’s why you don’t pay a 30+ year old that kind of money. 2nd major injury for him in the last 3 years. Cap hit next year is 19 mill from 5mill this year. Joshua Allen’s cap hit goes from 16 mill this year to 40 mill next year. So nearly an extra 40 mill next year between the two of them.

Just world news, not getting into to it this morning, but if you haven’t heard, Germany arrested 25 people in a plot to violently overthrow the Gov there.
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/germany-arrests-plot-far-right-extremist-coup-military-rcna60481

Suspects from the so-far unnamed group include a nobleman with a historic royal title and various armed forces veterans. It is centered on the so-called Reichsbürger, or Reich Citizens, movement which is motivated by conspiracy theories about the role and legitimacy of the modern German state.”

Today is also Pearl Harbor Day: the United States declared war on Japan on this date in 1941, after the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The following day, the United States declared war on Germany, cementing the American entry into World War II.

Actually, we did not declare war until the 8th. And Germany declared war on the US first on 11th December. We then followed suit declaring war on them.

But yes the remembrance of this date is significant and should always be observed.

Oops, my mistake. I suppose that on the 7th we were still reeling from what happened – much like 9/11.

Thank you for correcting me.

No worries. There are alot of folks who believe we declared war on Germany, but it was after Hitler declared on us. As part of the Axis pact with Germany, Japan and Italy, they (Germany and Italy) followed suit. Japan attacked us before they were to deliver their declaration of war.. and thus as they say, the rest is history..

Alot more to the history obviously prior to all this, but would take some time.. ; > )

Len Dawson played his last game, a loss to the Chargers, in 1975

I’m not sure if it’s just for this year, or if it’s going to be a semi-permanent staple for years to come, but I’ve noticed that in the fourth quarter (usually the first commercial break after “Put the hammer down!”), the Chiefs radio team does this “Remembering Len Dawson” segment and it will be his voice talking about some game or another that he played in; they set up the context and then he’ll talk about the game, or the team, or a specific play that stands out. I hope that somewhere someone is archiving those, because it would be cool to have them for posterity’s sake.

Agreed. I’d love to find all of them, since I can’t get the broadcasts here. Maybe suggest it to the station? They could provide links after the game? Or to the Chiefs themselves?

I think that Clay Wendler gets the radio broadcasts from some website that archives them (probably with the Chiefs’ permission), and one day I went down that rabbit hole to try to find the site but I believe it’s paywalled. I suppose I could email the station or the Chiefs themselves and see where that leads.

Also, Google “Audacy 106.5 The Wolf” (and/or click here and bookmark the site) on game days and it should play anywhere in the US. It doesn’t exactly sync up with the TV – the radio stream can be anywhere from a play and a half ahead to two plays behind (thanks, Janet Jackson) – but I’d rather listen to a radio delay than Cris Collinsworth’s fawning over Tom Brady or Tony Romo’s knuckleheaded, self-important prattle.
