Good morning, Chiefs fans. We have another off-season day of Kansas City Chiefs news, and while there aren't many storeies, I'd like to think of this as a "very special episode" of Arrowheadlines. Today's lesson? Pay for your beer. Enjoy, friends. Oh, and this pic begs for some captions.
If and when players and teams are allowed to speak to each other again, Vrabel's explanations to Clark Hunt, Scott Pioli and Haley about what happened won't phase him. Talking with Tyler and Carter and explaining why their Dad now has football cards with his face on them and a mug shot, will be much, much harder...
...It's easy to see this incident disappearing rather quickly from the public eye. In Indiana, any theft of an object no matter its value is considered a Class D felony and carries with it a sentence of between six months and three years in jail. But, Vrabel isn't going to be spending time in the Gray Bar Hotel, not for a handful of beers.
Mike Vrabel will have to deal with the ramifications of his poor timing and given his previous penchant for doing the right thing that will likely be punishment enough.
Timing Gone Bad... Tuesday Cup O'Chiefs from Bob Gretz
Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel was arrested Monday morning in Florence, Ind...
"...It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication. I'm sorry and I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter."

Perhaps UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers will stay out west in the NFL.
Three AFC West teams are among the clubs seriously considering the pass-rusher. Ayers has visited the San Diego Chargers and will meet with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs before this month's draft (April 28-30), according to a source close to UCLA.

One of ALA's responses to the 1990s recession was to organize a "Rally for America's Libraries / Caravan on Wheels," that traveled from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., after the 1991 ALA Annual Conference. Designed to capture media attention, its objective was to encourage librarians to tell their stories to local news outlets...
...The Atlanta Rally proved to be an amazing success. Outside, under a wilting southern summer sun but energized by the enthusiasm of the crowd, Patricia and I shared the podium with Jesse Jackson, Newt Gingrich, author Judy Blume, Kansas City Chiefs football star Derrick Thomas, and Dances with Wolves author Michael Blake. Stealing the show was Diane Francis, a student at the Adult Learning Center of the Queens Library in Jamaica, New York, who sang an original composition, "Bluffin' It," about how the library changed her life by teaching her how to read.
