Chiefs and Royals fans will have TV decisions to make when football season begins

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

What a time to be alive in Kansas City. The Royals are the American League's best team as we head down the stretch of the baseball season. Meanwhile across the parking lot there is plenty of optimism about the Chiefs heading into their third season under Andy Reid.

Those who are fans of both the Royals and Chiefs (raises hand) will have some decisions to make when football season starts. The Royals will be playing at the same time as the Chiefs in all four of their preseason games, and the first four regular season games.

That's a problem for those of us who love Kansas City sports! It's a good problem to have, and not one Kansas Citians have had very often over the past few decades.

So how do you plan on handling the days when both the Royals and Chiefs play? Will you watch the Royals in August considering those games count? Or are you all Chiefs once the season gets here? Go back to the college days of two TVs in the living room?

*Note that I didn't include the Royals postseason schedule because it's not available but you can count on them playing deep into October!
