I have to admit this: I know zilch about One Direction, except that they are hugely popular and someone quit the band or is going to quit.

Will that preface, I present this note about One Direction’s concert at Arrowhead Stadium on Tuesday night.

The concert was well-received by almost everyone, save for a coworker who left the office at the wrong time and was stuck on I-70 trying to get home.

USA Today reported that during the show Harry Styles catered to Kansas City fans by saying: “I support the Raiders — said no one ever!”

That’s red meat to KC fans. But the Raiders took exception.

That’s another member of the band in the ugly hat. As another coworker likes to say: Oh snap!

Hat tip to USA Today's For The Win.
