If you're an all-around sports nut like me, you probably grew up watching the iconic show This Week In Baseball. And if you did, you probably wonder why the heck it's no longer around, especially when I'm 99.8 percent sure the show's killer end-credit theme music can transcend generations^.
^Yes, I’m aware Fox did a show like this a few years ago. However, it didn’t have the full theme music/montage and thus it did not count.
So, in the absence of the iconic show, allow me to play Mel Allen for a moment and cue up The Star's Chiefs stories for this week, all rounded up into a neat little blog post. I'll make this a weekly feature if you guys like it, so in the spirit of “Gathering Crowds,” feel free to cue up any piece of NFL Films music — this week's recommendation is “Best of the Best” by David Robidoux — and get caught up on all the latest happenings with the Chiefs.
