    Default Remembering Chirstian Okoye!

    Guys...I'm a KC Chiefs fan on FB & someone posted about Christian Okoye. My beloved #35! I'm 48, so many of your younger guys might not completely understand. When Marty came to town, I was hopeful. The mid 70's & really most of the 80's was a complete joke. Then, we had Marty, Steve DeBerg, Christian Okoye & the BEST offensive line (of all-time IMHO) Our defensive was loaded as well. That 1990 playoff game against Miami was when I simply brokedown. I was 25 years old & I cried like a baby outside my parents home. Dave Szott (his rookie season) was called for holding, as Christian brought the ball to the 8 yard-line. Nick Lowey lined-up for a 45+ yard field goal & was "dead-on" & was short by less then a foot. I'll never forget that game. Please do me a favor & watch this Okoye video that will take 5 minutes of you life. He was a raw football player & made the best of what was given to him. Top 10 power running-backs of all-time IMHO. He only lasted 6 years.

    DAMN! And I never even heard of Tecmo Superbowl!!!! I became a Chiefs fan MANY years ago. When I was a young pup my Dad was concerned about my masculinity because I had no interest in football, so along about when I was 9 years old he took me on a business trip to KC and bought tickets to a game. It was against the RAIDERS! Chiefs won 16-13 IIRC and I was HOOKED!!!! Chiefs fan and Raider hater ever since. The closest I have ever come to suicide was Christmas Day of '71. Jan Stenerud broke my heart that day. So now I hate the damned fish from Miami every bit as much as I do the Raiders.

    YW....When jap & yourself brought that up, remembered the game. First one I ever seen with full rosters, injuries & constantly changing health statuses of players.
