No one thought it could get any worse for the Chiefs and their fans this year, until we woke up this morning to the news of this tragedy both at the stadium and away. Today is as low as it can get. I cannot imagine anything worse happening now to this franchise. All sorts of emotions are being displayed and felt as would be expected. Joel pretty much summed it up for me with the latest article on the front page.
But let me remind everyone of one thing, although it is not promised to anyone, most of us will God willing wake up tomorrow, to a brand new day. WE and only WE (YOU and only YOU) decide how you are going to feel that day and react to things that happen.
First I really believe if this game is going to be played, every fan that can, should be at that stadium to support this team and franchise in one of its lowest moments as part of a National Sports team. Win, lose or draw it is just a game, but these are human beings playing that game and they deserve our best now. Although they haven't had a very good season, I still believe most of these men have given there very best most of this season. And for this day, whether it was just a handful or more that cheered Matt Cassel being injured, we have a chance to right that wrong in the National spotlight on Sunday with overwhelming support of this team.
If I were able to be there, they would hear me cheer for anything and everything good or bad (except injury) because I am a Chiefs fan! My new emphasis on the future of this franchise begins tomorrow and forever again for all I know is Chiefs and that's a good thing.
Today I will remain mourning the loss of two lives and pray for the future of an innocent child.
