The Kansas City Chiefs
beat the San Diego Chargers
in overtime (after a Philip Rivers
fumbled snap) on Monday Night Football and it was a glorious night. Imagine going from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows and back to the highest of highs. That's what we went through in the fourth quarter tonight (err, last night).
We'll have some stuff from the locker room coming tomorrow morning (since I'm really tired). To finish off the night, here are a few pictures we took on the way into and during the game today. Click on the image above to see more pictures.
There she is...
Not a bad parking spot, right? I got there around 5:30 and there was a healthy amount of tailgating going on. The thing about this place is, you can smell the different food (well, mostly barbecue) from tailgate to tailgate.
That's your ESPN Monday Night Football setup.
This is Arrowhead without anyone in it, except for a few guys on the field warming up. This is around 5:30 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) Monday night.
The lights are on, people are getting to their seats and the field looks terrific. I mean...isn't that just an outstanding looking field? This is about 20 minutes before the game.
Right before 7:30 p.m., the Chiefs came out onto the field and the fireworks were going off. That smoke lined the top of the stadium for most of the night it seemed.
The crowd at Arrowhead was very good. Over 72,000 in paid attendance which is a high number for the Chiefs compared to the last few years.
And then, just like that, the stadium is empty and everyone's gone. This was about an hour after the game.
