KC Superfan X-Factor, aka Ty Rowton, messaged me at Facebook asking for my phone number, saying he had something important to discuss with me. I didn't have a clue what he wanted to talk to me about. Well, he called me this past Monday morning I think it was.
All NFL teams are represented by so called "Superfans". The NFL has a Hall of Fame for fans, just as they do for players. Arrowman was the original KC Chief Superfan, & first Chiefs fan inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame for fans. X-Factor has been inducted as well, and I think Weirdwolf may be also.
Arrowman & Weirdwolf have somewhat retired from their obligations as Superfans...including scheduling & attending events, taking photos & signing autographs as recognized Superfan characters to help raise money for kids' charities, & so on. There are a few fans who work behind the scenes within the KC Superfans organization, they're Superfans too, but not recognized characters. Ty founded the KC Superfans charity in 2003. As I said, the priority of the KC Superfans charity is to raise money to benefit kids within the KC metro area.
Well, I sure wasn't expecting such, but Ty's call was to ask me if I would become a part of the KC Superfans organization, and his saying he thought I'd be an asset to their organization. He considered me to be a Superfan in my own right, and said my name had been brought up to him by others during discussions related to bringing in new Superfans, needed to fill the shoes of those retiring.
He said I could participate, even make appearances as a Superfan, but without dressing in a character costume. He also said if I did decide to be a Superfan character in costume...that I would be their first female KC Superfan character. Becoming the first female KC Superfan character has some intriguing appeal, hahaha. I would make Superfan history, in some aspect Chiefs related history! HA! Most important however, I could be of benefit helping to raise money for kids who need such, bring smiles to their faces, maybe even make a lasting positive difference in one or two childs lives.
I'm honored Ty called xtending an invitation to become a part of the KC Superfans organization. I'm also honored Ty & others believe I qualify as a Superfan, I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all too. We have our first KC Superfan meeting the week after Super Bowl, which Ty invited me to & I accepted.
