Your heart is pounding and your palms are sweaty. Your adrenaline is pumping. Kickoff is hours away, but you are going through your game-day preparations with a routine that has stood the test of time season after season. You are a pro at this.

It's game day!

But you won't take your place on the line alongside the other big uglies. You aren't the starting quarterback or even the back-up punter. No. You are a Kansas City Chiefs football fan. Your passion is unbridled. Your love of the game knows no boundaries. You've got your face paint and
your lucky jersey. Seconds seem like hours. The hated Raiders are coming to town, or maybe the despised Denver Broncos.

Doesn't really matter. It's Sunday. And you are ready for some football.

A Super Bowl title. Lamar Hunt. Lenny the Cool. Contact. The X-Factor. Marcus and Joe. DT, Tony G., Mr. Music and Warpaint. All have combined to make up the moments, memories and milestones that endeared this team to thousands of fans throughout its history. For 50 years, the Kansas City Chiefs have taken the field to the roar of the crowd, both in Dallas and Kansas City, as part of the American Football League and later the National Football League.

From the days of playing in battered stadiums with no showers to the gorgeous new digs at Arrowhead Stadium, the Kansas City Chiefs have a legacy like few other teams. They appeared in the first Super Bow, became the last AFL team to win a game when they upset Minnesota in Super Bowl IV and produced a list of Hall of Fame greats that roll off the tongues of fans of the Red and Gold.

For Chiefs Fans Only! captures the important moments in team history, the legendaryplayers on the field and the personalities off the field in addition to the ever-present, always-vocal Kansas City Chiefs fans - touted across the league as the NFL's best."
