It was the day… The day to head to Kansas City to watch the Chiefs in the Playoffs. They were divisional Champions and now it’s time to claim victory… I’d like to say the day went as planned, but sadly, it didn’t…
If you follow baseball at all (which sadly I don’t) you’ll remember that about the time of the World Series in 2015, Kansas City was painted up blue to support their team. Well this year as the Chiefs made the playoffs it was time to swap out the blue for Red.
Our noon thirty game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was pushed back to a 7:35 game so we had plenty of time to make it to Kansas City. Other than the fact, you know… they opened gates like 4 or 5 hours before the game where normal game its like 2 hours or something like that. Don’t quote me on times, I’m just usually where I’m supposed to be when I’m told to be there.
After all the health issues around Christmas time in our group of friends, we decided not to tailgate. Too much hassle and work that didn’t need to be done. So our truck stopped at Jose Peppers on the way up for lunch.
Deb and Drake got a Taco salad. Look at that thing, seriously! Grady had a Coconut Chicken Salad (which the chicken, out of this world), and Mark got some kind of seafood enchilada.
Mark and I stumbled across this place a year ago January and that time we had these. Stuffed Jalapeño peppers. These particular peppers are stuffed with chicken, jalapeño cream cheese, wrapped in Monterey Jack cheese, breaded, then deep fried and served with Tomatillo Ranch. I decided to make them my meal. I could only eat 2. The other 2 I took home and when we got home around 2am that night, Mark and I warmed them up and ate them.
Our Chiefs were division title holders so we had a bye-week last week. That left us to play the Pittsburgh Steelers.
While it was a good game, the results didn’t turn out like we hoped. The Steelers won the game with nothing but field goals (3 points a piece). And while I thought that was stupid they won that way, Mark made an excellent point that, they never got a touch down. We held them off. Okay, okay… The score was 18 to 16 Steelers. They go on to play the Patriots which means we have to root for the Steelers… blech!
Let’s get them next year Chiefs. Chiefs fan for life!
