Truman Sports Complex, Kansas City
Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium is a unique experience around the NFL The Chiefs fans are fanatical supporters of their team, with almost the entire stadium dressing in Chiefs Red.
The game itself is best described as a clash of gladiators trying to move into possession of the others territory. Only the team in control of the football may score.
Since this event is tailgating, Kansas City's NFL team, the Chiefs, must be playing at home. This will only be certain weekends from September thru January. If you are lucky enough to catch a nationally broadcast game (Sunday or Monday Night Football, the playoffs) or any Raider game, and the experience will be unforgettable.
The day is as much about the tail-gate party before as it is the game. The Arrowhead parking lot fills early with cars, trucks, and vans. The air fills soon after, with footballs, frisbees, and the smoke of bar-b-que. TVs and radios hype the game until kickoff. Drink some cold beer, eat some KC style BBQ, and saok in the atmosphere.
The game itself is you and 80,000 friends all dressed in Chiefs regalia. The team usually wins, especially at home, and the fans really make a difference. Get good seats and the line for the restrooms isnt too bad.
Kauffman Stadium ranks as one of the game's most beautiful ballparks. The Stadium's unique features include a 12-story high scoreboard, a 322-foot wide water spectacular and the Sony JumboTron color video display board. The water spectacular is the largest privately funded fountain in the world. It extends from the right field to left field bullpens and is shaped in the form of the number one. The JumboTron, measuring 30 by 40 feet, ranks as one of the largest video boards in the U.S. and features the Royals logo at the top of the board.
Even though I'm not a Royals fan, anytime you have the chance to visit Kauffman Stadium for a game, do so. Its a very nice stadium.
Kansas City Chiefs NFL Football team. The Chiefs have been a K.C. institution for over 35 years. Regular season is Sept. to Dec. All games are sellouts so tickets can be hard to get.
On November 25th Becky got a free ticket to see a KC chiefs game with her boss. I've never been to a professional football game but my wife has.
My father took us to see the Kansas City Royals play when I was a boy. Fond memory for me. If you get a chance you should see a game.
