Good morning. Today's Kansas City Chiefs news has the Chiefs' Cheerleaders headed overseas, Ryan Succop getting hitched, and a look back at Star-Spangled Fails. Enjoy.
While overseas, the cheerleaders will visit hospitals, MWR Centers and multiple locations on bases for meet and greets during the day. The squad will perform a variety show for troops each evening and military personnel will get a chance to meet the women after each show.
In addition, the Chiefs have donated team t-shirts and hats for the cheerleaders to distribute to the men and women of our armed forces throughout the tour.
