As Chiefs open season, KC's tailgating tradition resumes
A breeze blows through the Truman Sports Complex parking lot. It's quiet here, the asphalt around Arrowhead Stadium mostly empty.
This morning, though, this expanse of roughly 56 paved acres will come to life, taking its seasonal place as a one-day-a-week commune for early risers, grill masters and Chiefs lifers. Kansas City might not be known for outstanding football, but it is hallowed ground for another weekly spectacle: tailgating. It's part of what makes this region unique, an overall sensory overload that brings thousands here early on fall Sundays.
