I've often thought of the oddness that the AFC championship trophy is named after Lamar Hunt, the patriarch of the Kansas City Chiefs, when it should have been named for Art Rooney - nicknamed "The Chief."
Perhaps the Chief's ghost can exact some revenge with a thrilling preseason win over Hunt's Chiefs tonight.
That's a tad dramatic, I apologize. Lamar Hunt and Art Rooney were both pioneers and while Hunt has his trophy, Rooney's legacy is owning the team with the most of the first place trophies.

Outside of that, we'll put up a second half thread soon after the first half is over, and we'll have a game write-up immediately following the action, along with Winners and Losers and other news regarding events during the game.
Enjoy, and in the words of Charlestown Chiefs general manager Joe McGrath, "Big crowd out there tonight, boys, let's really try to win this one."
