The Kansas City Chiefs throttled the Denver Broncos, 33-10, on Sunday night to earn a playoff berth. Andy Reid’s guys dominated from the opening whistle and put an exclamation point on the rout by having a 346-pound man throw a touchdown pass. The atmosphere in the victorious post-game locker room was festive and, according to ESPN’s Michele Steele, also smelly.
Now, to be fair, an NFL locker room after a game is not a setting prone to pleasant odor. Large, sweaty men tend to carry a certain aroma after doing battle. But, Steele, an accomplished reporter, obviously found the smell newsworthy and followed through on her duty to share the tidbit with a curious public. She should be commended by using all five senses to paint a vivid picture.
