Arrowhead Stadium is a must-visit for sports fans

After GQ got done featuring Chris and his makeover, they moved onto more important things like a list of the 12 sports pilgrimages every man should make (apparently not women).

On the list, as you'd expect, is Arrowhead Stadium. No. 8 in fact (along with Allen Fieldhouse down the road). Football is the biggest sport and Arrowhead has one of the best reputations for their game day atmosphere. Hard to argue with this when the Chiefs are winning.

It's also impressive to see how quickly Arrowhead came back after a miserable two-win season just two years ago whe the seats were routinely empty. One winning season later and all is well again.

The write-up comes from former KC sports writer Joe Posnanski, who offers up the best of Arrowhead with this passage here:

Kansas City has America's best barbecue, and the best part of America's best barbecue pit is that if you bring a six-pack of anything and just wander, you will be invited by total strangers to eat burnt ends of brisket, ribs, and various other meats until you can barely move, making you not unlike the Chiefs' offensive line.

One of the downsides of blogging from the press box is that I never tailgate anymore. One of these days I'm going to have to grab a six pack and do some wandering.

We know Chiefs fans show up and are loud. Many of those people are also Royals fans. Makes me wonder what kind of atmosphere Kauffman Stadium will be like if the Royals are winning late in the year.
