Football fans have been making out their shopping lists and menus.
“We need something to make some noise so we’ve got some confetti cannons for the victory and then we’re just looking for some other stuff to decorate the house we’re looking forward to a big win,” Tom Beck said.
“We’re going to have meatballs, cheesy bread and shrimp and all the dips and chips and salsa,” Jeffrey Forbis said.
At the Hy-Vee in Belton shoppers are greeted with tents full of Chiefs merchandise and plenty of football themed food. There are football shaped containers full of appetizers wings and barbecue and of course all kinds of red and gold decorated delights.
