As I sit here and watch the preseason game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears, I am torn. I know...I know, its just preseason so it really doesn't matter. BUT! For the past 20+ years I have been a Bears fan starting when I lived in Washington DC and then for 13 of the past 17 years actually living in Chicago. I have loved the Bears when they were great and when they were terrible.
As a boy growing up, I lived in MO and KS for 17 of my first 22 years...and a Chiefs fan I was. And I loved them when they great and when they were terrible. And for most of those years...they were terrible.
Now having moved back to KC, I want to be a hometown boy. I want to be a Royals fan (not easy). I want to be a Chiefs fan (not quite as hard) and I want to be a Kings fan (thats right they moved to Sacramento a bajillion years ago). And for the most part I am becoming such again. But when the Bears play the Chiefs. Its just too difficult. Well I guess I won't have to worry about it until the Super Bowl (yeah right).
