Chiefs Parade: Sports Spotlight

Catie McArthur

On Sunday, February 2, 2020, the Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV, making it the first time the team has brought the Lombardi trophy back to Kansas City in 50 years. Schools all across the metro were cancelled on Wednesday the 5th so that Chiefs fans would be able to attend the parade welcoming the champs home. 

Despite the temperature never reaching above freezing, around 800,000 people came out to support and celebrate with the team, some even arriving as early as 5:30 in the morning. 

Personally, I did not attend the parade because I am not a big fan of the cold, but I did feel some regrets as I watched it on T.V for deciding not to go. Everyone looked like they were having the time of their lives. Luckily, for me and any other Chiefs fans out there who chose to not go this year, it looks like this will not just be a one time thing.

Head Coach Andy Reid assured everyone during his speech at the parade that the Chiefs will win the Super Bowl again next year, and there will be yet another exciting parade for everyone to look forward to. The parade was not only celebrating the fact of winning this year, but also the future of winning as well. This is a new age of Kansas City football, and this is just the beginning.
