This week, we took a look at the three Olympians competing in Sochi who have ties to Kansas or Missouri. Emily Scott is from Springfield, Missouri, Pete Yemm is right down the street, a native of Overland Park, Kansas and Lt. Dan Cnossen is from Topeka, Kansas. Read their stories here.
Also, the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine begins this week and Chiefs insider, Reid Ferrin, showed us the 13 players with local ties that are scheduled to participate at the event.
And in case you missed it, I started a new series, Employee Spotlight. This past week, I interviewed Chiefs Team Photographer Steve Sanders to hear about his daily responsibilities, shooting the Super Bowl, the Chiefs Cheerleader Calendar and the games at Arrowhead.
Now, let's check out what's happening on social media in this week's edition of Chiefs Weekly.

Geoff Schwartz also posted a photo of his Valentine’s Day meal…it wasn’t as classy as Chase’s but looks delicious! The caption read, “When you treat your significant other right everyday of the year, you get pizza on Valentine’s Day!”
Jeff Allen is finding his artistic side. Allen posted this photo with the caption that read, “My first piece of art #Picasso #Jicasso.”
The Chiefs posted a photo in remembrance of Derrick Thomas. “Derrick Thomas after recording his 100th sack on November 16, 1997 | #tbt #ChiefsKingdom.”
