Memories of Games Gone By

I have always been and will always be a Kansas City Chiefs fan.

But my favorite Chiefs teams were the ones of the ’90s.  Playoff season after playoff season after playoff season.  The Carl Peterson years.  Joe Montana.  Marcus Allen.  Nick the Kick.

And Neil Smith and Derrick Thomas.  The best of friends and the best defensive duo ever.

I’d already moved from Kansas City by early 2000.  The news that Derrick Thomas had passed away from the injuries he suffered in a car accident hit me like a gut punch.  It was the end of an era.

But I’ll always have those memories of games gone by.  Thank you Derrick.
