There was a whirlwind of activity around here yesterday. In fact, nearly a quarter of Arrowhead Stadium's capacity walked through the door (and nearly 50K page views!). For those of you that had a hard time keeping up (stupid day jobs), here's a quick recap of what went down yesterday.
We had 15 (!) front page posts, which other than draft weekend has to be some sort of record. Keep the FanShots and FanPosts coming today.
After the jump is a quick recap of all the Chiefs news you saw here yesterday.
