The Tennessee Titans versus Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship Game has now devolved into airport versus airport.
With some bad weather rolling through Missouri ahead of the AFC Championship Game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans, Kansas City International Airport was forced to close its airfield, halting flights.
And because of that, the President and CEO of Nashville International Airport, Doug Kreulen, thought it would be a good time to troll the airport of the Titans’ upcoming opponent and say it was closed because the Chiefs are afraid of the Titans, who will be landing there.
Obviously this is just a joke, but Chiefs fans lost their minds in the comments of the tweet.
When one Chiefs fan tried to rationalize the closure and throw shade back, the Nashville International Airport’s official Twitter account kept the trolling going.
The Kansas City International Airport then responded, but Kreulen went on to make it clear he was just joking, even though that was abundantly clear already.
As of 11:55 a.m. CST, Kansas City International Airport announced that all flights were resuming, as conditions had improved.
While weather conditions don’t look great now, things are supposed to clear up by game time on Sunday.
According to NFLWeather.com, the temperature at kickoff will be a frigid 21 degrees but feel like around 10 degrees. However, conditions will be clear, with winds at about nine miles per hour and no precipitation expected.
Kansas City and Tennessee will kickoff at 2:05 p.m. CST at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday with a trip to Super Bowl LIV in Miami on the line.
