Good morning, Chiefs fans! Half-day Friday at work for me (and I'm happy). Add to that some beautiful weather here in Jersey, and I'm almost distracted from today's NFL labor mess. Have a great day and enjoy today's Kansas City Chiefs news.
The pro football world lands on the eastern edge of the state of Missouri on Friday.
More specifically, it falls in the Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse on South 10th Street in downtown St. Louis.
Even more specifically it lands in the En Banc Courtroom on the 28th Floor of the Eagleton Courthouse. The building has 29 floors, so while it’s not quite the Penthouse, but it’s pretty darn close.
Unappealing Matters... Morning Cup O'Chiefs from Bob Gretz
It seems most Kansas City Chiefs fans are pleased with the team’s decision to take Pittsburgh receiver Jon Baldwin with the No. 26 overall pick in the April draft. Nearly every response to our sound-off question this week was in favor of the move. Here’s what some of you had to say:

Calling All Musicians! from The Mothership
Atallah spoke in front of the Renaissance Hotel, where a number of players were seen coming and going Thursday evening. Among them, Kansas City Chiefs Linebacker Andy Studebaker, who came over from K.C. to be part of a group of players expected to be about thirty strong.
"Any time the process is moving and people are talking, it’s a good thing," Studebaker said. "I don’t know too much about what happened and what went on, but I think it’s a positive thing."
NFL Lockout Talks Head to St Louis Appeals Court from FOX2Now
Casey Wiegmann, center, Kansas City: Wiegmann is still deciding whether he wants to play in 2011 or not. The general consensus is that Wiegmann, who’ll turn 38 in July, will decide to play in 2011 because he may be refreshed by an extended offseason. The Chiefs want him back. Yet, a lost season could keep Wiegmann at home for good.

Siranni Skills Camp Set for June 30, July 1 at Southwestern from The Jamestown Post-Journal
I insisted on leaving Bowe out of my top 20 fantasy receivers last year, after putting him at No. 10 for 2009. I wasn't getting burned again, darn it, and I wasn't buying the puff pieces coming out of Kansas City about how Bowe finally was acting like a professional. After all, this is a player who reported to training camp overweight in '09, led the NFL in drops, didn't catch a TD after Week 7, and earned a four-week suspension for using a banned substance.
