We traveled down on Sunday morning around 10 and got to the stadium just in time to enjoy some of the smells, mostly, and sights. I would love to go to a Chiefs game and just tailgate like we did so many times for K-State games without even going into the stadium. Oh it smelled so good! It was a beautiful day. Almost a bit hot for a sweatshirt. Our seats were great. You could actually read their jersey numbers or hear what they were saying on the field.
It was also military appreciation day. I cried a lot that day. From the ceremony of bringing the American flag onto the field, to the Airman (lady) signing the national anthem, to a family being reunited right there at Arrowhead. They also paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the Iraq/Afghanistan wars from Kansas and Missouri. I cried again when a man from Holton came on the big screen and his family was sitting right behind us. That hit a little too close to home, and I pray every day my brother stays safe and he comes home safely to us.
The game ended up being a horrible loss for the Chiefs, but it was fun being able to spend time together since we do not get to often and do something we normally would not spend money on. We sure hope the Chiefs become a little better before we decide to go to another game.
