TKC OPEN THREAD: WILL KANSAS CITY CHIEFS WIN OR DID FANBOYS JINX IT?!?



This week was dominated by a lot of media preoccupation with superstition, propaganda and seemingly endless football hype. Most locals have not only been talking about an inevitable Super Bowl victory but also the potential for a Patrick Mahomes Dynasty.

Everybody is aboard the Kansas City Chiefs bandwagon that will either result in one of the proudest moments in local history or the kind of disappointment that's usually only reserved for the death of a loved one.

Sure, most broke-ass locals are probably thinking about work or (more likely) working today but there's no doubting this moment belongs to middle-class sports fans and their obsession powered by consumerism, willful distraction and ignorance in their adherence to a trivial sports score and just a touch of military industrial complex flexing for good measure.

And so we ask . . .

HAVE FANBOYS AND SPORTS NEWSIES JINXED THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS?!?!

To be fair, the Chiefs have been favored to win the Super Bowl and even an objective observer could hardly deny they have the most dynamic offense in the NFL.

And so we wait for answers and the final score whilst sharing some of our favorite news links on today's big game . . .

This moment is all Mahomes.

With $200 million on the line. I'm sure we're going to see a performance like never before.

Pats kept him off the field. That trick won't work this time. If their defense keeps pressure on him than MAYBE they'll have a chance but NOBODY else has managed to do that this season.

BREAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TMZ reports Mahomes was injured last night when he slipped on a puddle of ketchup while admiring his shoe collection.

He was life-flighted to St. Luke's where trauma surgeons removed a pair of Yeezy's which had become lodged in his colon.

If he takes the field Sunday, he's not expected to run much, which means he'll likely be intercepted a few times.

Look for retards to pack the stands, bankrupting themselves for a chance to get frostbite while watching a bunch of low IQ jocks battle on the tundra.

Local fake news TV bobbleheads will be wearing their red coats and genuflecting at the feet of a Dallas billionaire who receives welfare from Jackson County residents.

I hope they fucking lose. The town has collectively had Mahomes' dick in their mouths for the past two seasons. But they won't because it's all scripted and rigged. Packers and Chiefs for a SB I rematch.
