R.I.P. Lamar Hunt

From the obituary of Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt, who died last night:

Hunt long campaigned to let teams other than Dallas and Detroit play at home on Thanksgiving Day. To honor his effort, the NFL scheduled a third game on the holiday this year -- in Kansas City. Hunt missed it, though, because he was in the hospital and couldn't get the game on TV.

KC-Denver was the first game broadcast on the NFL Network. It's a sad irony that the man who coined the term "Super Bowl" couldn't see - from his deathbed - a game scheduled to honor him.

The Wisdom of Crowds chimes in on tonight's game: SEA -9.5 sf
