What does this girl mean to the Kansas City Chiefs? Only a 180° turnaround in fortune. Olathe, Kansas's own Kavya Shivashankar won the 2009 Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday night. She is the first Kansas product to win such an award in the history of the bee, and, more importantly, a precursor to the fate of the 2009 Kansas City Chiefs. The curse is reversed, fellas. Suck on that, Canada.
