Chiefs fans responding after the tragedy at Arrowhead

Time to stand strong.


It can be said that this is the darkest hour for the Kansas City Chiefs. After the death of 22-year old Kasandra Perkins and Jovan Belcher, and a child who now doesn't have any parents, Chiefs nation is in a dark place.

Because we are a great fan base, I knew we would respond the right way. I started to see some Chiefs fans rallying around each other. Mayor Sly James wrote on Twitter that now is the time to wear your Chiefs red. I asked on Twitter if anyone who wasn't planning on going to the game is now going.

The response...

So that's like 30-something tickets accounted for. (And I stopped pasting all the tweets in here.)

Then I started to see others, like these fine folks, who offered up their tickets!

There are gonna be a lot of eyes on us today. It's not going to be an easy day for anyone, especially those in the Chiefs organization, and the Belcher and Perkins families.
