Chiefs superfan “ChiefsAholic” arrested for robbing banks to fund Chiefs tickets in deadline entry for story of the yearThere’s just over a week remaining in 2022. We’re down to the wire. In all categories across the internet—music, movies, knitting, sports—the best-of-year nominees have been filed, the votes tabulated. Various “Wrapped” recaps have arrived and been hung from the chimney Instagram with care. But it’s never over till it’s really truly over, and on Monday evening a new contender for Most Unhinged Sports Story of the Year kicked down the door like Ol’ Saint Nick on a bender. It goes something like this:
“ChiefsAholic,” a beloved Chiefs superfan known for attending each and every game at Arrowhead in a wolf mask, was a no-show at Sunday’s game versus the Texans. He had also gone dark on his usually active social media accounts. Chiefs fans on reddit began to worry—maybe his car had flown off the road and down an embankment and he was now being held captive by even more deranged Chiefs fan like poor Jimmy Caan in ‘Misery.’ So they began their search.
They looked high and low, near and far. They scoured hospital records and shook down informants. Eventually, they found ChiefsAholic alive and well … in prison.
