The Kansas City Chiefs, one of the original AFL teams, died at their home on Sunday. The autopsy proved to be inconclusive as to whether it was self-inflicted or initiated by an outside source. The Chiefs were born the Dallas Texans in 1960 before being adopted by the Kansas City family in 1963. The Chiefs are best known for appearing in Super Bowl I against the Green Bay Packers and winning Super Bowl IV over the Minnesota Vikings.
The Chiefs, despite being over 50 years old, began showing signs of a recovery last year with a division title after a long bout with Carl Peterson disease. Friends and family were optimistic that they would fully recover, but sadly it was not to be. The Buffalo Bills, thought to be a safe partner for Sunday’s dance, proved to be too much and exposed how much was really wrong with the Chiefs.
The Chiefs are survived by tens of thousands of tearful, jaded fans and a great tailgating and football stadium.
