Psychic believes Arrowhead cursed.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
KANSAS CITY — “I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.” The Kansas City Chiefs are owners of an NFL record six consecutive home playoff defeats. Now we know why. Arrowhead Stadium was reportedly haunted by the sordid wraith of former head coach Hank Stram who led KC to its lone Super Bowl title in 1970. According to Topeka psychic Vicky Millard and rabid fans Gary McKenzie and Anthony Stratton, paranormal forces played an undermining role in a series of postseason collapses since the arena opened in 1972.
They may have a point.
During a 2018 playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans, the Chiefs blew a 21-3 lead after Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to himself. The year prior, the Chiefs suffered a bogus holding call on Eric Fisher during a late 2-point conversion that would’ve tied the Pittsburgh Steelers.
KC would go on to lose despite giving up a measly 6 field goals and no touchdowns — becoming the first team in NFL history to do so. In January 2004, the Chiefs lost 38-31 to the Indianapolis Colts in a game that featured zero punts, also the first in league antiquity. The list goes on and on.
HANK, YOU SELFISH BASTARD!
Gary and Anthony, by the way, run ArrowheadGuys.com, an online sports forum for Chiefs fans. Vicky operates Kansas Paranormal Investigations in Topeka, Kansas. The troika took a recent tour of Arrowhead Stadium and came away with a pair of shocking revelations.
For starters, Vicky said she came into contact with the apparition of a man donning a suit from the early 70s. She then realized it was the poltergeist of Stram who was fired by Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt in 1974. It was not a popular termination. Many Chiefs fans were pissed at the decision.
Stram was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003.
He died two years later at the age of 82.
Stram apparently harbored rancor against the franchise for putting a pink slip in his Christmas stocking. “[Stram] is ready to let it go,” Vicky said, recalling her confabulation with the disgruntled spirit.
“He’s a Chiefs fan through and through. Where would you spend your time when you’re on the other side if you can have the best seat in the house?”
Later, during the 2nd part of the tour, Vicky suffered a sharp pain in her right leg as the trio approached Section 111. Anthony’s late father, Richard Stratton, was an amputee who sat in that area. He lost his right leg. “We were walking by section 111, 11-1, and [Vicky] said, ‘1-12, no, 1-11,” Anthony explained.
“She said, ’11-1, that means something,’ and I stood there going, ‘That’s the date my dad died.'”
After concluding the tour, Vicky blessed Arrowhead Stadium with an exorcism.
When asked if the venue remains cursed, Vicky replied: “Not anymore.”
