"Five things to watch as the Chiefs play the Raiders"

- the usual suspects i.e., half a dirty dozen (give or take), exhibiting their usual acting up/acting out, win or lose

#87 channeling his inner minstrel, spastic gyrations afield

#10 doing the same - born and bred, no channeling necessary

Ditto #95, #15 and another couple random shuckin' and jivin'

Contrary to the oft-quoted 'winning isn't everything, it's the only thing', in KC it's the 'show' that takes precedence, always, winning but an aside, and of secondary importance... since 1970 and counting, mounting.

Is what they do, without fail, affirming that which is most important them: preening, prancing, dancing and showboating. Make a play and do your dance - get beat the next play for a td, no problem: "just can't wait for the next chance to do my dance", demonstrate their collective prima donna backsides.

It's 'the show' that must go on, the 'I'ndividual before 'team'. Any wonder 'has been' (double entendre) half a century since they were last relevant a football sense, NFL?

While I'm all for small businesses succeeding, they aren't exactly your go-to store when shopping for necessities. After all, how many crocheted lamp pulls do you need? Or, a pottery piece in red and blue streaks, even though your living room is green and brown? It's fun if you're in the market for a collectible to put on your what-not shelf.
