Just Football…

Oh man…nothing in football (and I mean nothing) compares to Arrowhead Stadium during a night game – and nothing much is better than Philip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers fumbling a snap and giving my Chiefs one more chance – and they won it!

We also don’t like Philip (the mouth) Rivers, so we were all smiles last night when no matter how loud Rivers yelled or how much he complained his mouth was drowned out by the Chiefs fans at Arrowhead – and most of it was done during heavy rain.

I thought the Chiefs would win this game. In fact, I had predicted a Chiefs victory way back on August 12 and again on September 8:

By the way, the Chargers will lose the Monday Night opener (September 13) at the new and improved Arrowhead Stadium in front of 80,000 Chiefs fans. The sea of red will be too much for Phillip Rivers, his mouth, and the Chargers.
