Enrique’s Video Vault: Honoring Marty

Marty Schottenheimer getting inducted into the Chiefs Hall of fame undoubtedly makes me very happy. And the sight of him being honored in a game vs. the Raiders only motivates me to contribute to the celebration. That’s why, as a tribute to the man of the hour, I’m unveiling arguably the sweetest of all the memories that I have at my disposal (as well as one that I’m pretty positive the man from Pennsylvania cherishes fondly): The ’95 Chiefs-Raiders game that marked the first KC-Oakland game in 13 years, and that James Hasty ended with a pick-six of Jeff Hostetler in OT.

As you’re about to remember, Marty wanted this September 17th game badly for a trio of ex-Raiders (Art Shell, Marcus Allen and Gunther Cunningham), and a little help from the zebras helped him fulfill that wish – much to the chagrin of Tim Brown, and in spite of Lin Elliot. So good is the reminiscence that I couldn’t resist going all out in presenting the various angles that I captured on that day, and for that reason is that I bring you an special triple feature in which you will not only savor – not once but twice – one of the greatest moments in Chiefs’ history (while being guided by Chris Berman and Dan Patrick), but you’ll also understand why I developed such a huge crush on Lesley Visser (just listen to her saying “Take that back to Oakland, you’re still the Raiders” in quoting Neil Smith) that very afternoon.

Please enjoy it. Especially, because I know Marty would.
