The Thrill of Victory….yes, my dear readers… and the agony of defeat is the sports mantra we have all heard and come to know in one way or another!
I haven’t spoken of sports in quite a few weeks and I am sorry, I just have to give a few cheers!
I know you all are aware of the Kansas City Royals baseball team winning the World Series and I am soooo proud of them and their long overdue accomplishment.
Now, we turn to football and yesterday, the Kansas City Chiefs cinched a play-off birth by winning over the Oakland Raiders.
So, if you don’t mind….I have got to give a shout out to the Coach Andy Reid and to all the players! Our season started out a bit dismal…the Chiefs won one game and then proceeded to lose the next 5 games! Talk about the agony of defeat!
AND then it happened. “It” being the spark of something, because a fire was lit under this long losing team and they came alive and started winning games.
Ten (10) games in a row to be exact!
The Captain and I always put on our Chiefs gear to watch the games on television and support our football team, no matter where we happen to live.
We are die hard fans and we have faith in this team just as we had faith in the Kansas City Royals and look what happened to them! Two years in a row to the World Series and the World Series Championship in 2015!
I probably need to add that our children and grand children are not Chiefs fans…actually, they are Oakland Raiders Fans and twin #1 and only grandson and his wife were at the game yesterday, at Arrowhead. Sorry kids, I know you had to sit in 36 degree temperatures only to see your team lose to the Chiefs! 😉
Heh, Heh, Heh! Is that mean spirited? Nah! all is fair in love and sports!
Ok, enough teasing…..as in all sports, no one can be assured of winning because anything can happen on any given game day….a player may get hurt or perhaps a couple players have the flu or perhaps the team just doesn’t quite get on the same page with all the plays.
But having said that….the team has been winning and now the Kansas City Chiefs are going to play in the play-offs in Houston next Saturday! They will be playing the Houston Texans!
Ironically, the Kansas City Royals baseball team also went to the play-offs in Houston to play the Houston Astros and we know how that ended! Just sayin’ 🙂
So, now we play football and hopefully….yes, I know it is a bit of a stretch…but hopefully,… we can go to the Super Bowl!
There, I have said it out loud!
As I have said before….win or lose, the Captain! and I support our Kansas City Teams right here in Florida! And just like the actors say at award ceremonies….they are thankful to have been nominated…the Kansas City Chiefs are thankful they are able to go to the Play-Offs!
Oh, and just a little footnote….you will also be hearing about our other favorite sport, college basketball,… particularly the Kansas Jayhawks who won their first Conference game on Saturday! Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Let the games begin!
The team this year looks very promising to go to the Final Four….but that is a long way off (March Madness) and we are talking all “red” today, for the Kansas City Chiefs!
Do you my dear readers have a favorite football team?
If so, let me know….and we can cheer together…for the Kansas City Chiefs of course! 😉
Have a great beginning to your week!
Hugs and Blessings!
