R.I.P. Lamar Hunt
I can't remember a time when the Super Bowl was not a pseudo-National Holiday. For the NFL's status as the premiere sports league in the country, we can thank Lamar Hunt. Mr. Hunt, the driving force behind the AFL, owner of the KC Chiefs and general sports promoter, died earlier this week. He is an icon in Kansas City, and most respected around the world of sports. For a guy that was born the son of an oil tycoon, he could have lived the life of a playboy. However, he put his energy into sports entertainment, and because of his efforts, I believe the world is a better place.
