Calling all eye witnesses...

Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel was among a number of Kansas City folks participating in a celebrity softball game at Kauffman Stadium over the weekend. Cassel, Kansas basketball head coach Bill Self and others played in the softball game on Sunday.

Self was understandably booed during the game, which is what you'd expect with a healthy amount of Mizzou fans in attendance. What was a slight surprise is hearing Cassel was booed by the fans. The Lawrence Journal-World reports:

"I always kind of thought Mizzou people liked me for some reason. I guess I was off base on that a little bit," said Self, who wasn't the only local player booed. Fans booed K.C. Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel during introductions, but gave him polite applause during his at-bats.

Was anyone there? I'd like to know the difference between a "polite applause" and a rude applause. Let's hear another first-hand account of what went down.
