A Motivational Message

Kansas City at Denver -- 2013

Few of us here on AP would doubt the significance of the Chief's approaching challenge. Sure, this is just one game in a series of sixteen, but it represents so much more. Andy Reid has already made this team relevant, but relevance does not win championships. We are not just playing for a win next Sunday night, we are playing for the motivation that win can foster within us, the respect that win can forge, and the path that such a win would set us on. After all, if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.

Will one game make or break a season? Of course not. But this one feels different...special. It is a perfectly timed trial by fire within a season that seems to radiate an air of destiny. The national spotlight. The division rivalry. The "irresistible force" against the "immovable object." The unconvinced outsiders. All of these things are converging in a single game--sixty minutes to make a statement to the world.

I hope you will forgive the relatively short nature of this FanPost. My original intention was to write out a motivational piece about our upcoming contest with the loathsome Doncos and their illustrious five-headed signal caller. When I finished, I just felt like the speech could use some music, and who wants to listen to music without a few pictures? One thing led to another and I suddenly had a video on my hands. The music comes courtesy of Hans Zimmer, and the pictures were pilfered from various sources across the Internet. I considered waiting until later in the week to post this, but I thought I would get ahead of the flurry of posts that are sure to accompany this game. With the formalities thus out of the way, I humbly submit my best crack at motivation for our boys:

Go Chiefs!
