Some are already aware, but for those who aren't...I was blessed today with being able to attend Chiefs Training Camp at Missouri Western in St. Joseph, Missouri! My closest friend of 25 yrs., Cindy, her grand-daughter, and her daughter Stacy, whose also my friend...invited me to ride along with them. Stacy is a Chiefs fan too, and we're working on her mom, Cindy...who isn't a football fan at all, she's getting there though, lol.

Our Chiefs looked AWESOME in the 1 1/2 hours we watched them practice! Cassel is throwing the ball GREAT!! I didn't see any WR drop even one ball! YEEHAW! Berry jumped high & quick, batting away a ball in the air preventing a catch, saving a TD near the goal line! I think he may have done the same a second time, but people were blocking my view, couldn't see the jersey number for sure.

Our boy's are looking GREAT y'all!! :yahoo:

I had an awesome time overall, the only downside was having to walk a VERY long way from the free parking to the training camp area...in VERY HOT temps, much of it uphill! Even the youngin's were wore out, lol. I think the Chiefs should provide shuttles like they do on Draft Day from the parking lot to the indoor training facility at Arrowhead, which isn't nearly as far a walk compared to that we had today!

Okay...here's some pic's for ya! :D

To get to the training camp area you MUST walk through the merchandise tent, haha. Four Chiefs Cheerleaders were signing autographs. This is a pic below I took after they signed a Chiefs training camp hand fan for me, which is laying on the corner of the table end nearest looking at the pic. The fan personally autographed to Aussie!

I had hoped to acquire more auto's to replace the ones lost in the mail to Aussie from Draft Day, but there were many fans at camp, and the players only sign for 10 minutes at the end of that days camp. :(

Here we are below! From left to right...Stacy, my friend Cindy's daughter, whom went to school with & grew up with my kids. We're like family! Next to Stacy is her daughter, Cindy's grand-daughter Shailey. Shailey is Cindy's first grandchild, & was born on my birthday! My first grandchild was just a couple hours shy of being born on Cindy's birthday. Next is 'me', with fresh pop stains on my shirt, lol...then Cindy. :)

Near the field is a pretend Chiefs player for fan photo taking, haha. The first one of me is normal, but then I decided if I was gonna be a Chiefs player even pretend...I needed a tough poker face, so the second photo I'm trying to appear 'tough', lol.

Great pictures! If you get the chance to go again to training camp, try taking a ball while they're not looking! :lol:

Ryfo...I've not even told my friend Kelly I went yet, haha. He's not happy either with the Chiefs not having training camp in River Falls. He lives just on the other side of Minnepolis/St.Paul...Wisconsin side, only about 15 minutes from River Falls.

Clint...one of the balls Cassell threw went to the fans standing behind the fence. A fan made a great catch actually, haha...but the on field assistant went to him asking for it, & took it! I thought that was unfair, they should've let the guy keep it in my opinion.

TS...you're welcome! I enjoy sharing photos, especially when I know that's the only way others can enjoy some of the Chiefs events they're not able to attend themselves. Shoot, I'd be there everyday if it was possible, but am grateful for being there Sunday.

Yeah I hate it they won't let you keep them. When I've been to Chiefs games as well as Texans games, if they kickers or punters are warming up early and a ball happens to go into the stands a person will normally go up into the stands and get it back. They probably do that because footballs are expensive, at Academy here in town they sell the Authentic NFL balls and they're about 80 bucks. I guess it's not like baseball where they are only a buck or two..

Well yeah, $80 is alot to you and me. Shoot though, rarely does an NFL fan get the opportunity to catch a ball, and considering the billions we NFL fans spend supporting the NFL umbrella & our team...I think they should let a fan keep an $80 ball when the opportunity arises once in a great while.

If I ever catch one...they ain't getting it back! I'll run & hide!
:lol:

If I ever get one, and they force me to give it back I'm gonna see if I can get a receiver to run a post pattern and throw it to them. :lol:
