It's a Beeeeeyou-tiful Day in Heaven
As a life long Chiefs fan today is a sad day. The long time broadcaster Bill Grigsby made heaven a brighter place today with his passing. I can still hear his voice in my head. He had that kind of voice, one that just sticks with you. Even something simple said by him stuck with you because of his voice. He just had one of those voices. His phrase "It's a beeeautiful day at Arrowhead!" regardless of whether or not it really was a beautiful day made you believe it was just that. His voice was also behind the Price Chopper ads in the Kansas City area, which I would imagine is going through many peoples heads today as they hear about the passing of Bill. I think it's a safe bet that Tony DiPardo, long time bandleader for the Chiefs who passed away less than a month ago was the first to greet Bill at the pearly gates. Bill, you will be missed by Chiefs fans all over. I know it's a beautiful day in heaven with you there. Give Derrick a hug for all of us fans.
