"Sports are a big part of Missouri's heritage, and we're proud to have the Kansas City Chiefs represent our great state in the Super Bowl this year," he said in a KMBC news story. "I think it's about time we had another big win," Parson said. "Let's bring it home. Go Chiefs!"
Around the nation, Kansas City Chiefs fans will be rooting for the team to take home its second Super Bowl trophy in franchise history on Sunday. The last time the team played for the win was in 1970, when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings in a surprising upset. So how ready is the state of Missouri to return to the Super Bowl after 50 years? In true "Show Me State" fashion, the Missouri State Capitol will show support for the team by glowing red this Friday evening. Governor Parson, who is a longtime Chiefs fan, says this is a fitting tribute to the state's favorite and only NFL team.
