The power of Chiefs

So I'm at this past weekend's NASCAR race in Kansas City.  Weird...it was almost 90 on Friday afternoon for practice, by race time on Sunday it was mostly cloudy, windy and 54.

Then, half way through the race, a fire breaks out in turn one at the track.  Not on the track itself but up about 40 yards above the track where a grill in the hospitality area started some bushes on fire!  Caution comes out...KC BBQ is outstanding, but I'll pass on the BBQ'd hydrangea.   

About 75 laps to go in the race and I notice a group of people get up and they're going nuts, doing the tomahawk chop and thrusting their hand up in the air!!  Then I get it--they are Kansas City Chiefs fans, the boys just completed a comeback in their game, and the Chefs are now 5-0.  After winning just 2 games last year, I can understand their glee....but, sit the hell down!
