It's been a rough year for the Kansas City Chiefs. Their last win was on Sept. 23, and their fans have taken to covering their faces in decorated paper bags. A fan's death was blamed on disappointment from their season. Even when they were out delivering turkeys to fans on Thanksgiving, they heard from fans about their poor play.
Wide receiver Dexter McCluster joined in on the team's annual Thanksgiving Food Distribution, where they helped 2,000 local families with their Thanksgiving dinner. He made a special delivery to a family that included food for their pantry and Thanksgiving dinner as well as Chiefs gear. While signing a football, he heard from a fan about her disappointment in the team.
"Y'all better start winning some games. I be praying for you all, but you've been coming up short," the fan told McCluster.
He said she needed to pray harder, and she responded in kind.
"Y'all got to work a little bit harder."
McCluster graciously agreed with her.
The Chiefs have tried benching players who turn the ball over, removing the head coach from playcalling duties, and changing quarterbacks. Perhaps they need to listen to wise words of this fan and work a little bit harder.
