When it comes to experiencing a Super Bowl, the closest most of us get is a seat in front of the television with a bowl of chips. For the mother of a Ouray woman, the thrill of cheerleading for the Kansas City Chiefs in the first ever Super Bowl game in 1967 gave her an up-close experience most can only dream about.
Cindy Rose, whose daughter Kendra Manley is a stylist at Salon Envy, got to experience the sights and sounds from the sideline, as the Kansas City Chiefs took on the the Green Bay Packers in 1967.
And though Rose didn't get to experience a Chiefs' victory, she still cherishes the memories of her experience in the big game. As it turned out, she passed her passion along to Manley, who became a Chiefs cheerleader as well. Yes, like mother, like daughter. Except only one got to the big game.
