Our 1st NFL Game ~ Chiefs vs. Broncos!

November 25, 2012 ~ We got a call from Krissy Ellis (I am working with her on a special project that y'all will know about soon enough) and she had a friend that plays for the Denver Broncos and they just happen to be playing the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. She really wanted to go since she had never been before and asked if we would go with her.... well duh! Of course we would since we have never been to a professional football game! We loaded up and headed out the door around 7:30 am!
When we arrived we paid the $27.00 general admission parking fee and went to find a parking spot. It appears that while we were looking all around Mr. Spry took us into a reserved parking lot and the lady felt sorry for us so she waved us on through. Then we get parked and an older guy in a Lexus SUV parks right next to us. Hello Door Dings! 
So after we pick up our tickets at will call we started heading to one of Krissy's friends tailgate!
So as I was getting ready to take a picture of the Chiefs Cheerleaders and a tailgater totally took me out with his cooler! Seriously! He knocked me over and it was like slow motion as I hit the ground. It was actually kind of funny and I didn't get hurt but dang he came out of no where! 
This is Krissy's friend, Zack and his woman Kristy! They were super nice people! Zack had made some excellent smoked chicken that we got to sample! Yummy! (It was about 10 am and game didn't start until 12:00 pm)
The lines were crazy long to get into the stadium but we finally made it in towards the end of the first quarter (I kept calling them innings... it's a baseball thing and I don't understand football ya know)
We had pretty good seats with the Denver Broncos fans... oh and a few wild and crazy Chiefs fans! 
We had a pretty good time! The weather was perfect! 
Once the game was over (Chiefs 9 - Broncos 17) we headed down to the field for some pictures!
They quickly rushed us out the doors after we took a few pictures. We didn't care as we were going to meet up with Krissy's friend who scored us the tickets!
We totally needed this sign! (It wasn't ours)
(Not sure who this is yet)
(Not sure who this is yet)
Joel Dreessen #81
(Not sure who this is yet)
Virgil Green #85
We were very thankful that Virgil scored us tickets for this game. Krissy knew him from working in Nevada before moving to University of Missouri! It was an awesome day to take in a professional football game! The weather was perfect, new people we met where awesome and we got to meet a few of the players!
