When talking about all-time NFL Draft busts, unfortunately the Kansas City Chiefs' selection of DT Ryan Sims No. 6 overall in 2002 inevitably comes up in the discussion. Sims ended up making little impact in Kansas City over five seasons. He left Kansas City after the 2006 season, totaling 54 tackles, 5 sacks and 1 interception. He was awesome!

So, needless to say, for Chiefs fans, talking about the No 6 can bring up painful memories. But for Ryan Sims, apparently the number six is reason to party.

Sims is taking over a nightclub in Spartanburg, SC, and he's naming it VI. Yes, VI. As in the Roman numeral six.

"The name of the club is a tribute to Sims being the sixth overall pick in the 2002 draft," Joe Wells, former owner, said. He said Sims will bring in his own staff and will be making changes to the building's interior.

Clearly, Chiefs fans and Ryan Sims differ on what No. 6 means.
