    RIP. NFL had better do something for Lamar Hunt at the Super Bowl this year.

    Also, a good read by the DMN. Obviously, a canned obit. But a good read, nonetheless.

    RIP to a great sportsman.

    Thanks for passing the obit along.

    What, two years after Hank Stram?

    Man.

    RIP, Mr. Hunt.

    And a couple months after Buck O'Neil. Two KC legends. Sad year in Kansas City.

    RIP Lamar.

    Peter Boyle, Lamar Hunt and my grandmother all on the same day. Wonder if they're hanging out.

    RIP Lamar Hunt. An owner any fan could be envious of.

    Let's hope K.C. does better than David Glass this time if Hunt's sons ever sell out.

    I was just wondering a couple days ago how late this would have to break in order for the major papers involved -- KC Star, DM News -- NOT to have a ton of coverage. I bet there's some good writing comes out of this.

    Here's Clayton at ESPN, which I thought was pretty solid:

    And of course, RIP. Great man.
