Let me start this post by saying my true colors are Black and Silver.
I have been part of the Raider Nation since the 70's
Anyone who knows anything about AFC football knows that Raiders and Chiefs just don't mix. They're like oil and water.
Scott and I loved to talk football, for we had a natural rivalry.
We talked of going to a game or two, especially after he learned I flew into KC one Christmas Eve to watch the Raiders/Chiefs game on the TV in the bar of the KC airport terminal, then turned around and flew home all in the same day, because it was going to be blacked out here in Chicago.
So I guess my point is, as a Raider, the Chiefs are my ultimate enemy.
That was up until September.
When e passed away, I found myself drawn to the TV whenever the Chiefs were on.
I watched each and every game that was televised.
I was rooting for them, right up until the end when they lost a wild card playoff to the Colts this past Saturday. Now I was glad the Colts won (for a different reason that involves my daughter) but was saddened by the Chiefs being knocked out.
I was holding on to e through the Chiefs, but now it is just one more leaf in e's tree of life I need to let go.
Miss you e
