    KANSAS CITY - Seen on the scene: Miss USA, Shandi Finnessey of Florissant,
    chatting it up with Rams director of football administration Samir Suleiman on
    the sideline before kickoff; former Cardinals head coach and Rams assistant Jim
    Hanifan, looking very "Magnum P.I." in a vibrant Hawaiian shirt

    Harris the hammer: Although he was giving up about 30 pounds in the matchup,
    Arlen Harris crushed Chiefs linebacker Gary Stills with a blind-side block on a
    Rams kickoff return in the second quarter. Stills was still for a few seconds
    before wobbling to the sideline.

    Weather or not: Chiefs officials kept a nervous watch on the weather radar,

    were in the stands at kickoff. By the time the fourth quarter rolled around,

    Score down: The Chiefs had clubbed the Rams for an average of 52.5 points per
    game the last two times the G-Cup was contested in KC.
