Down Under Rules

When the Kansas City Chiefs’ front office told fans this year would be a rebuilding season, the message sounded like: Take a year off from watching what looks to be a mostly poor team. Could that be why billboards advertising Chiefs season tickets are blanketing the town? Fortunately, another football avenue exists for local fans, though they’ll have to get used to the version of the sport played with Australian rules. The Kansas City Power, which plays a version of football that vaguely resembles rugby, takes on the St. Louis Blues this afternoon at 3 at Gillham Park (39th Street and Gillham Road). Fresh from a victory against a Minnesota team, the Power shows off here in its last regular season game. See kcpower.com for more information.
