THE CHIEFS ARE NO. 1

The Kansas City Chiefs enter today’s game in a four-way tie for first place. They’ve avoided injuries, Brodie Croyle hasn’t lost us a game and Larry Johnson hasn’t been accused of any inappropriate touching. Yeah, OK, some might say these things are true because the Chiefs haven’t played a regular-season game yet. But go to tonight’s game at Arrowhead Stadium, when the Chiefs take on the Rams in the last preseason contest, with the knowledge that the team will still be first after tonight. Sure, Vegas oddsmakers say only four teams are less likely to win the Super Bowl than the Chiefs (a $100 bet will get you $10,000 if they pull it out), but for now, anything is possible — even beating the Rams. Call 816-920-9400 for tickets, which cost $41 to $115. The game starts at 6.
