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?
