TBT: Good Idea!

The countdown to Sunday has begun!

Have you ever had a good idea? You know, the kind of idea that leads to a foolhardy venture like creating a football league to take on the NFL? That's exactly what Lamar Hunt and seven other owners did in creating the American Football League. They called themselves the "foolish club." The AFL and NFL merged in 1966. Four years later, Hunt's Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl. Fifty years later, the team we call "our team" won another championship! Now, they defend their title. How many more are there to come?

Are you a Chiefs fan? Search jocohistory.org for articles about Lamar and the team from back in the day. It's the place to travel through local history. Also, be sure to follow our hashtag on Twitter!
