Kansas City Chiefs

"Hail to the Chiefs"

Joe JonesCorrespondent IJanuary 20, 2009

Ok,,think back: Jan. 11, 1970, Tulane Stadium, for those of you old enough to remember. It was a day to remember. Hank Stram was miked up, because Bud Grant had refused.

That day will go down in Chiefs history as the most vocal day to date. As a mere 10-year-old kid, you only remember the big plays, the ones that stand out the most was seeing Otis Taylor gallop down the sidelines, high-stepping into the endzone,and the voice of Hank Stram yelling, "Hey boys just keep matriculating the ball down the field." That will be a day that I will never forget.

The Chiefs man handled the highly favored "Purple People Eaters," as they flew back to Minnesota having nightmares about the"65 toss power trap" which was the Chiefs bread and butter play that worked to perfection all day.

Maybe, just maybe, after the Chiefs get all their pieces to the puzzle together, we might just once again relive the glory days, that has haunted us for 39 years, without a return trip to the "Big Dance."

But until then,,with the help of Scott Pioli and a "Few good men", maybe the Chiefs will paint another "WAR DANCE."
