Coach Todd Haley has added a game called “Bags” to the Chiefs locker room to build morale and create a fun atmosphere according to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star. The game is similar to one that many tailgators play on parking lots. It consists of two plywood boards on an angle with a hole at the top.
The objective is to throw each of the four beanbags into the hole for three points or on the board for one. First to 21 points wins.
Quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn suggested the activity because it was successful at one of his previous coaching stops. Haley and his family play the game when on vacation in Ocean City, Md., and his wife, Chrissy, contacted someone they know who builds the games and asked for him to send a couple of boards to Kansas City.
“Three days later, he had them out here,” Haley said. “We’re going to get two more because the line to play gets too long. … We’re trying to create an atmosphere that’s fun to hang out in. … Had we not won the last two weeks, they might be being used as firewood.”
“It’s a good ay to (get to know) some of your teammates and get the camaraderie going,” said safety Sabby Piscitelli, a newcomer to the Chiefs this season. “It was a great idea and hopefully keeps the momentum going.”
