For the last 20 years or so, Chiefs players have spent part of their Thanksgiving holidays personally delivering meals to needy residents in the Kansas City area. It goes without saying that it's a noble gesture—the players get to give something to the community, members of the community get to spend a few minutes and receive some swag from a pro athlete, and the local television stations get to kill some time with a ready-made, easily palatable feature story. Everybody wins.
But when you're 1-9, even your generosity has a price. Those needy fans might be grateful, but deep-down, they're still fans, and fans don't like losers, even magnanimous losers like the Kansas City Chiefs. Dexter McCluster found this out yesterday when he brought dinner and autographed a hat for this kindly old lady, who couldn't resist the opportunity to sass him with zingers like, "Ya'll better start winning some games."
