It says a lot about your conditioning as a fan when you see your team is 5-0 in the regular season, and the only team in the entire league with an undefeated record, and the only thought in your head is “Boy I sure can’t wait to see how we fuck this one up.” It’s a terrible thought, but man, that’s what it’s like being a Chiefs fan.
This team, right here, always has me guessing. It’s always dependent on what kind of year we have. Which I suppose is better than knowing right out the gate your team is going to suck elephant balls (cough Cleveland cough), but man, it’s a rollercoaster.
Literally the only thing you can predict about The Chiefs is that they’re either going to suck this year, or they’re going to have a really good regular season, and fuck up when it actually matters. Though to be fair, we lost to The Patriots two years ago, and the only shame in that is if you lose with a score of 57 to 14 or something particularly humiliating like that. Then there’s games like last year, where one specific player got a holding penalty that cost us a two point conversion that would’ve tied the game. Which reminds me, how the fuck is it we get rid of Jeremy MacLyn for some reason, but Eric fucking Fisher got to keep HIS job? That’s seriously the kind of boneheaded mistake that gets football fans angry, and talk of sacrificing you to their vengeful football god starts circulating.
Six weeks into the 2017 season, The Chiefs were undefeated… Until week 6, when they took on The Steelers. To put it bluntly: death, taxes, and Steelers beat The Chiefs. Enough said.
I knew it wasn’t going to last forever. If not because nobody’s been able to replicate the legendary Miami Dolphins undefeated streak (and don’t even start with 2007 Patriots, because losing the superbowl counts as a loss, and therefore, you’re not undefeated), but because it’s the fucking Chiefs. This is a team that’s great at building up so they can knock you down. And we fall for it every year. It’d be embarrassing if it wasn’t something trivial like a sports team.
If you want my prediction, I’ll say that, for sure, we’re making it to the playoffs. Then we choke against the first team we play, and then sit back and watch as The Patriots win another fucking superbowl.
