Have to say, I dig Chimpy getting torn a new one every time he posts. Kind of like seeing Democracy in action. He thought he was so fudging clever but now he's getting his ass kicked in the comments. Weird.

7:54 KCTV didn't cut the game short CBS did. I recorded the Chiefs games on 5.1 and 13.1 from Topeka and both stations lost the game at the same time.
