The Kansas City Chiefs are world champions of professional football. That’s a sentence many Kansas Citians thought they’d never see again.

But it’s true, and it’s amazing. The Chiefs powered past the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s Super Bowl, bringing home a shiny trophy to swell the hearts of a million people.

In itself, this is not unusual. All communities love their local teams. Sports unite people in strange and wonderful ways, and in this polarized era, that kind of unity feels special.
