For Pete's Sake

Local sports teams, athletes were enraptured by solar eclipse

The Chiefs’ timing was perfect.

Had they been at training camp in St. Joseph, they would have missed Monday’s solar eclipse because of bad weather.* Instead, they practiced at their Arrowhead Stadium training facility and took time to witness it.

*Is it too soon to make that joke?

The eclipse caught the attention of players and teams across the country, and that included around Kansas City. Here is what local teams and players shared on social media:
