Just saw that KC traded Gonzalez to the Falcons for a 2nd round pick in the 2010 draft.

No doubt. Even though TG is getting towards the end of his career, he will still be a very viable target for Atlanta and something the other defenses will have to consider. I think it made the Falcons a much better team than they already were.

good deal for both teams...kc isn't going anywhere special for a few years and are in a rebuilding phase and got a 2nd round pick for a player soon to retire before they are any good and got to dump his salary.

falcons got a heck of a good tight end for ryan...the best tight end to ever play the game imo...if ryan continues where he left off and burner turner stays healthy they are contenders.

...might end up being the biggest offseason acquisition of any squad making their team better for next season.

you might be right. He is going to help them out alot, and help out the wideouts, and blocking on the line!

Atlanta could be miserable to get off the field this year on 3rd down.

Nope they will be back. I guess they are on a year to year contract system right now. Missouri wants them back home. I quess if they move home they will get some pretty big taxs breaks.

I know when I lived in St Joseph Mo (45 miles N of KC) there was talk of the Chiefs either training there at MoWest University or in Maryville at NW Mo. Personally, I don't know how they could, it is VERY warm there in the summertime. Especially after the Korey Stringer incident.

Strangely- I looked up MoWest on Wiki and the Chiefs are getting a new facility built there and will make that their new summer home in 2010.

Well that sucks that they wont be back after this year. I is real fun wactching them practice. Its only a 15 min walk from my front door. Zamboni you are right on the heat thing. The last few years has been just horrid here during there first week. At there family fun night one year I asked this huge d-lineman what he thought of the heat. It was in the mid 90's that week and humid. He said it was still better than at home????

Kids wont be happy as we have takin them every year to the family fun night and a 1/2 dozen or so practices. They look forward to it every year.

Kind of fun to look at the autographs over the years they have collected.

Got in a bar underage just out of high school 15 min later realized we were next to Joe Montana one year. Herm Edwards used to run past our house every morning on the college walking trails. Very Nice guy, would stop and chat for a little every now and then, especially if the kids were out side. Kids always wanted to be football players after talking to him. The kicker got in a bar fight and messed up a local one night. I was about 10 min to late from seeing that happen. The rookie WR's are always little punks at the family fun night autograph sessions. The d line, oline, Qbs, kickers and punters are the best with the kids, they always pick them out first before any adults got autos. Going to miss them.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
