KSHB A 65-year-old Lee’s Summit man is charged with shooting a man after an insult-filled afternoon of watching the Chiefs football game. Ronald L. Hall is charged in Jackson County Court with assault and armed criminal action. Court documents state Hall, his son and several other men gathered at a Lee’s Summit house on Sunday to watch the football game. Hall’s son told police everyone at the gathering had been drinking and trading insults as they watched the game. He also told police his father was ill-tempered and mean and his disposition had gotten worse in the last year, according to court documents. Hall often became angry during the banter and that was the case Sunday. His son told police his father threatened to shoot people in the past, but had never done so, court documents state. Hall’s son and the victim were outside the house when a loud noise rang out. The victim fell to the ground with a shotgun wound to his face. Hall refused to come out of the house when police arrived. Officers evacuated houses in the neighborhood and were able to remove a two-month-old baby in the house with him. Police arrested Hall, who later told nurses he had shot someone, court records state. The victim suffered critical injuries, including a stroke.
The good news is, if the guy who was shot in the face survives, you won’t be able to distinguish him from the other Chiefs fans because they’ll all have bags over their heads. BA-ZING!
It’s been that kind of season for Kansas City Chiefs fans, they have only held the lead on two occasions this entire season, and are a horrific (1-9) despite having plenty of talent.
Worse, there is not a draft eligible quarterback in College Football worth picking with the first overall pick in next April’s NFL Draft, and quarterback is clearly the Chiefs biggest position of need.
Kansas City sports has had a rough go the last couple of years, and the city is quickly climbing the list of most tortured fanbases, it has been a long time since they have had a winner.
I still give the nod to Seattle as the most tortured fanbase in the country though, I mean Kevin Durant falls into their laps, and they get the Sonics ripped away from them and relocated to Oklahoma City. Then they have to watch as Durant blossoms into the best scorer to enter the NBA in a decade.
I know this has been a rough season, Kansas City, but at least your not Seattle. Put the gun down.
