Kansas City Final Round/Game Notes

January 26, 2020

The Chiefs’ appearance in next week’s 54th Super Bowl will be the seventh final round/game appearance by a Kansas City team, in a major North American Sports league.

K.C. teams are (3-3) in the six previous such entities.

Football’s Chiefs are (1-1), losing to the Green Bay Packers in the first Super Bowl (called the NFL/AFL Championship Game, in those, better in my opinion, pre hype days) and winning vs the Minnesota Vikings, 50 years ago, in the 4th Supe and last one matching the AFL and NFL.

The baseball Royals are (2-2), winning World Series 30 years apart in 1985 and 2015, while losing in 1980 and 2014.

In 2014, the only previous San Francisco vs Kansas City post-season action took place, with the Madison Bumgarner led San Francisco Giants, winning the final round/World Series in 7 games, vs the Royals.

After 5 more seasons with the Giants, Bumgarner is now with Arizona (Diamondbacks) and it is S.F. vs K.C. for the ’19 football crown next week.

Madison Bumgarner started and won 2 games and then pitched brilliantly in relief, in the decisive 7th game, leading the Giants to the ’14 title vs the Royals.
