KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Like a lot of locals, Steve Price went into fall Sundays wearing red and came out of them raking leaves and muttering obscenities. Before Week 1, hed even purchased the ultimate dude vanity item, a flat-screen TV explicitly for the man-cave. Hed branded himself an NFL lifer, having embraced 49ers games when he lived out west.
Then he met the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs. Oh, doctor.
This past Sunday (a 28-6 loss to Cincinnati), I didnt even watch the game, screw it, grumbled Price, director of operations at Painted Hills Golf Club in Kansas City, Kan., one of the metros more popular public courses. And Ive got a friend of mine down the street that has tickets in the 12th row, on the 40-yard line, and he called me and he wanted me to go. I said, Ive got a million things I feel like doing I dont really want to go.
I like to watch them, but (expletive), when they get their (expletive) kicked, I know theyre going to lose, whats the point? Its really sad. Its really sad...
