TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! DOWNTOWN TOY TRAIN STREETCAR CURSES KANSAS CITY CHIEFS WITH PLAYOFF BANDWAGON!!!
Just announced this morning, the streetcar jeopardizes playoff destiny by way of literally turning local transit into a hype machine.
To wit . . .
THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR TRANSFORMED INTO KANSAS CITY CHIEFS BANDWAGON BRINGS BAD VIBES TO THE TEAM WITH A SORDID PLAYOFF HISTORY!!!
While the Chiefs earned their spot in the playoffs, the toy train has only advanced by way of rigged votes.
Overconfidence is dangerous given sketchy history and opposition that is formidable.
To be fair, the wrap is neat but possibly just a bit premature . . . The marketing move would have been more appropriate for a Super Bowl trip. Instead, it comes off as far to eager.
Here are more deets:
KC Streetcar to ‘Roll on with the Chiefs’ beginning Friday
Beginning Friday, all of Kansas City is invited to Roll with the Chiefs on a specially branded Chiefs KC Streetcar. The Kansas City Chiefs and the KC Streetcar Authority (KCSA), together with Hy-Vee and Sprint, wrapped one streetcar in Chiefs branding to kick off Red Friday and the Chiefs playoff run, which begins Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts.
In addition to the Chiefs Streetcar, the Chiefs and the KCSA are throwing a Red Friday celebration.
Rolling with the Chiefs will include Chiefs representatives, KC Wolf, Chiefs Cheerleaders, Chiefs Ambassadors and the Chiefs Rumble for Kansas City’s first-ever Rolling with the Chiefs party. The celebration will start on board the Chiefs Streetcar at 5 p.m. Friday and continue for one loop around Downtown.
