This is my annual calling to all Kansas City Chiefs fans out there, it’s time to wake the sleeping beast.
By sleeping beast I of course mean Arrowhead Stadium. Since that brutal afternoon in which the Chiefs amazing 2013 season ended, Arrowhead Stadium has been hibernating, waiting for it’s return.
It’s time to pack all 73,000 seats to the brim, put the smell of delicious barbecue in the air, and reach decibel levels that set world records.
It’s time to enjoy the seasons changing from the rigorous heat of the summer, to the beautiful leaves of the fall and the brutal snow storms of the winter.
It’s time to drink endless amounts of beer and hate the Raiders and Broncos again for the next 20 weeks of our lives (though we still hate them every week of the year).
It’s time to give the Chiefs one of the best home field advantages in the NFL and make sure that any team that enters that stadium feels the hostility of middle earth and it’s people.
I may be biased but, Kansas City is home to the greatest, most passionate fan base in the NFL (forget what Forbes had to say) and it’s time to flex that yet again with the start of the 2014 season this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Like last year, the Chiefs need you, us, more than ever as they enter year two of the Andy Reid, John Dorsey, and Alex Smith era. They need us to scream when the PA announcer states “It’s third dooooooown.” They need us banging on the seats with our hands to the point where you could swear the rumble would measure on the rector scale as an earthquake.
They need us on every first down – “That’s good for a Kansas City Chiiiiiieeeefs…” FIRST DOWN!
It’s football season Chiefs fans and it’s time to wake the most sacred grounds in the NFL.
It’s time to wake the beast.
It’s time to wake… Arrowhead Stadium.
