My name is Mark, I live just south of Topeka, and after 32 years in Information Technology, today I am a stay at home dad to four little girls (read future Chiefs fans) that my wife and I have adopted. Until today I had no idea this site even existed and from what I have seen so far I am certainly glad that it does.
When people ask me how long I have been a Chiefs fan I tell them that I still remember the Marv Levy Wing-T offense days (although I try to forget). I guess I have been a fan for about 38 years. Seems like it was about '71 when I really started getting into the Chiefs.
Although I was born in Wichita I grew up in Southern California and was a big time Rams fan for most of my childhood. My family relocated to Kansas just before I started my sophomore year in high school. It only took one season of following the Chiefs to be hooked for life.
A little story I would like to share ... in the summer of 2003 my wife and I relocated our family to Keller, TX. While we were in the move in process I signed us up for Direct TV (we had always had cable). My wife asked why all of a sudden I was switching us to Direct TV? I explained that I made the switch so that I could order NFL Ticket, that way I wouldn't miss any Chiefs games. She asked what that was going to cost us and I told her it was something like $200 a year. To which she said isn't that a little expensive just to watch Chiefs games? I replied with ... "it's either that or I will be spending every Sunday during football season at one of the local sports bars." She looked at me and said "You know, $200 doesn't sound to bad." True story!
Anyway ... I am happy that I found you and I am glad to be apart of this site.
Thanks for having me.
