The fans on here are passionate as I found out with my post last night.
As many of you know I posted the below in early December. Some of you had responded to me and informed me about how I may get a copy of the game which I have not been able to do as of yet. Still, your assistance meant a lot to me.
I also contacted the Chiefs on three different occasions between between Dec 2 and Dec 10 asking for their assistance in getting a copy of the game and received no response. This had me very frustrated as a Chiefs fan.
Today I received a very nice email from the Chiefs telling me they were sorry to hear of my loss and saying they would do all they could to get me a copy of the Chiefs/Steelers game for me to have as a memoir for my dad. I hope they are able to come through as it would mean a lot.
Sometimes the little things make the biggest difference to people. I was angry at the Chiefs for their on-field play and disappointed I had not heard from them regarding my request. Today, a simple email from the Chiefs made a big difference to me.
AP ers, I do appreciate the passion the fans on here have. We may not always agree but the passion is great to see.
********************** my post in early December*****
I recently shared a very memorable experience with my dad. I snuck up to visit him at a nursing home North of Omaha to watch the Chiefs/Steelers game. He had just been released from the hospital and had no idea
I was coming. I had sold my tickets to this game as I was going to watch Nebraska vs KState and to see him. It was one of the best decisions I have made.
We watched the game in his room and he was as sharp mentally as he had been in quite some time. We enjoyed the game immensely and it was the first game we had watched together since 2005.
The day after I left my dad took a dramatic turn for the worse and we laid him to rest yesterday. I will always cherish the fact we spent a great afternoon together watching the Chiefs and him sitting on the edge of his seat as OT started.
My dad and I immensely enjoyed watching the Chiefs together on TV or via the phone during the 90s after seeing them be so poor in the late 70's and all through the 80's. We both felt our loyalty had finally paid off.
I sincerely hope the Chiefs make the moves to become a relevant franchise again so many other father/sons will enjoy watching them together.
I am hoping one of you may be able to assist me. I have contacted the Chiefs to ask them if I could get a copy of the Steelers/Chiefs game over a week ago and have not heard from them. Do any of you have a contact that may be able to assist me?
