Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones Flip The Switch On The Plaza Lights

New, comments

For those of you not in Kansas City, one of the annual traditions around here is the lighting of the Plaza Lights on Thanksgiving night. There's always some sort of celebrity or important person in KC that flips the switch and this year it was Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones.

Flanked by KC Wolf (Santa Claus edition), Charles and Jones flipped the switch on the lights -- they actually almost pulled it too early before the countdown -- and created this....

It was cold -- but not bitterly cold -- and KC clearly liked having a pair of Chiefs on the stage to flip the lights. The night ended with some Christmas Carols and KC Wolf prancing around on stage with the players. The players signed autographs for a bunch of the fans afterward and it looked like they were having a good time.
