Good things for Kansas City Chiefs in 2020 – Super Bowl victory

If I were ranking these things, this would obviously be No. 1. Chiefs Kingdom waited five decades to see their team hoist the Lombardi Trophy and it was certainly a sight to behold when it finally happened. It didn’t seem real for the longest time after it did happen just because of how tortured this fan base had been for so long.

The Super Bowl itself was exciting, especially because none of us had experienced that before. It was fun in the weeks leading up to the big game and wondering what the end result would be. It was fun not only looking forward to the commercials and the halftime show. The whole experience was a blast.

Like their other two playoff games, the Chiefs had to play catch up once again, trailing the 49ers by 10 points with seven minutes left to go in the biggest game in sports. Mahomes hadn’t been playing well up to that point, but he didn’t let the phase him and threw to a wide open Tyreek Hill on 3rd and 15 for 44 yards that set the Chiefs up in the red zone, which they took advantage of.

I can’t tell you the number of emotions flowing through my body when Damien Williams broke off that 38-yard touchdown run with just 1:12 remaining in the game. I also can’t tell you the huge sigh of relief I gave when Jimmy Garoppolo overthrew Emmanuel Sanders just minutes before that. Had Jimmy G connected with Sanders on that throw, the 49ers would have taken the lead with 1:40 remaining.

When the final whistle sounded and the confetti fell from the sky, it was official. The Kansas City Chiefs were Super Bowl champions and it felt great.
