etiquette for this week's game
by CK Rairden
Fans want to knowwhat is the proper
etiquette for this weekends games? How do I behave
at the game, if I even go this weekend? Should I cheer?
Is it OK to high-five on a great play? Can I still boo?
All legitimate questions, and although each person must
do only what they are comfortable with, I will provide
my guide to the answers to the questions that are running
through everyones minds, and through my e-mail.
Should I go?
This is a personal decision that one must makebut
if you are not going to go and you already have tickets,
give your tickets to someone who wants to. Freedom to
assemble is very important and should not be squelched.
Should I tailgate?
Unless it is being banned, then hell yes. Bring your
grill throw some dead animal over the coals and grill
it. Share your bounty with your parking lot neighbors.
That is a big part of the American way, dont allow
anyone to take it from you.
Should I have a beer before or during the game?
If you have a designated driver enjoy a fine American
brew. Drink a toast to the dedicated men and women who
are fighting the good fight in our military. Tip a cold
one for the rescue workers, firemen and police officers
that have worked so hard.
What should I do during the National Anthem?
**Remove your hat, put your hand on your chest over your
heart, sing the Anthem and thank God that you live in
the greatest country ever.
Can I high-five, stand and cheer wildly?
Of course. Enjoy the game without putting shackles on
Can I boo?
If you feel the need to, absolutely. As always, never
get too belligerent, but let your emotions loose.
Should I bring a flag and wave it?
Three foot by five foot maximum is allowed. If your love
of Country drives you to this type of Patriotismyes.
Always care for the American flag properly. See http://www.heritage-flag.com/etiquett.htm
It may be a little slow getting into the stadium with
increased security. Have some patience; chat with your
fellow fans. No lousy security jokes, no complaining.
Use this game as you did in week one. Being a fan of your
**Arrowhead Stadium crowd: At the end of the National
Anthem, forgo the familiar the home of the Chiefs
and use the original line from our Anthem that means so
much to so many right now.
The home of the brave.
