So, to review, the Chiefs have won when - Playing the NFL’s version of FCS competition. - Limiting the league’s second-highest scoring team to 16 points. - Going on the road, with a short week, holding a dynamic offense to what is still its lowest point total of the season. - Sparking a blowout win with Dexter McCluster going all Dante Hall with a punt return. - Winning sloppy on the road against a team that has a good chance at the playoffs. It is more than fair for folks to want to see more from the counterculture Chiefs, but it’s not a bad resume so far. This week’s reading recommendation is Tim Keown’s incredible piece about professional sports in Oakland, and the eating recommendation is the guac at Frida’s, my favorite restaurant in south Johnson County, which sort of makes me think of Chuy’s opening on the Plaza which DEFINITELY makes me wonder if I’m the only one who wants Annie’s Santa Fe to come back^. ^ But the REAL Annie’s. Not the Annie’s of the last few years, before it closed, when it got terrible for some reason. As always, thanks for reading and for your help.
