Andy Reid isn't willing to say that he's feeling relaxed or rejuvenated these days, but those who are close to the new Kansas City Chiefs coach will say it for him.
The longtime Eagles coach is in the midst of his first training camp with a different franchise in 15 years. One minute he's barking at quarterback Alex Smith, the next minute he's yelling at a defensive player out of position.
Chiefs GM John Dorsey, who has known Reid for two decades, said ''he's having more fun'' than he has in years. Longtime friend Dick Vermeil said ''there's a reason you win, and Andy knows all the reasons.''
The Chiefs are counting on it after going 2-14 last season.

Pretty Expensive Concert
When I was a kid, I grew up with pretty consistent contact with racist relatives. Slurs were routinely dropped, gross generalizations handed out like mints, and if you wanted to argue that all of that was a bad idea, you were an arrogant little kid that didn't know much about the world. You'd learn how Those People were in time, and that was that...
