While we're on the subject of football:

Chiefs-Titans: Not the most intriguing Monday Night Football matchup of the year. I thought ABC was supposed to rig it where it could switch the games around in case the scheduled matchup turns out to be not so hot. Still, it's 21-14 Titans at halftime, and both teams have pulled off some long pass plays.

Al Michaels and John Madden have done a good job highlighting the two owners, Lamar Hunt and Bud Adams, who, along with the Bills' Ralph Wilson, are the lone charter members of the AFL.

Here's a piece of trivia offered up by Al: the Bills were originally slated to be a Miami fanchise, but Wilson couldn't work out a deal so he took his team to Buffalo. Miami, of course, would go on to become an AFL expansion franchise in 1966.
