Throw-back Thursday: KC Chiefs Football Edition

Welcome to another week of "Throw-back Thursday"!



Since football season is just getting started, I thought I'd share a few pictures of Jake and I at some of the Chiefs games we've been to in the last few years. 

Let me start by saying, we live in St. Louis, however Jake was born in Kansas City and has family there so he was and always has been a Chiefs fan. He moved to St. Louis when he was 2, so he definitely grew up here and has really only known living in St. Louis, yet he's a Chiefs/Royals fan! Go figure.

For his 18th birthday (2003), I surprised him with a little party at my parent's house and invited some of our friends and family. I also surprised him with his first ever Kansas City Chiefs game tickets. He's been hooked ever since. I so wish we had a picture from that game, but unfortunately we don't.  It was a cold, late December, Sunday game. The last game of regular season. :-)

The next game we went to was in October, 2006 against the 49ers.

We also went to another game in 2006, when the Chiefs came to St. Louis to play the Rams. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from this game.

The following year we went to a pre-season game when the Chiefs came to the Rams stadium here in St. Louis. 

And in November of that same year, (2007) we saw the Chiefs play again, but this game was in KC against the Broncos. BTW, it's a lot more fun to see them play in KC.

In 2010, we went to the Chiefs home opener in September!

In November of that same year, I surprised Jake with tickets to another game. I had some of his family in on the secret too and we tail-gated for the first time!



On top of these games, Jake's been to a few without me, including a play-off game in 2010 and most recently, a game he went to just last year with some of his family!

Next month, we're excited to be heading to Kansas City for another Chiefs home opener with the Stanfields! They are playing the Dallas Cowboys and our good friends Chris and Holly are Cowboys fans! It should be such a fun game since I grew up loving the Cowboys, (back when I had a huge crush on Troy Aikman)!

So now it's your turn. Do you have any fun football memories, or just a fun memory you'd like to share? Be sure and link up your Throw-back Thursday post here. I'd love to read about your fun memories.

We are HUGE Chiefs fans! Have been most of my life.
When I lived in KC I made sure to go to a game at least once a season. The tailgating there is seriously THE best! We've been to a few Chargers games (when they play the Chiefs, naturally), and no stadium compares to Arrowhead!

I love seeing all the photos of you guys through the years! Looks like some fun outings! I'd love to go to a Falcons game here in Atlanta sometime. I've never been, and would like to change that!
