We’ve seen fans demonstrate their affection for their beloved sports teams in some odd ways, but this has to be the most truly unique expression of fanaticism ever. 58-year-old Steve Graham, who lost his eye in a dart accident when he was 13-years-old, is the proud owner of this Kansas City Chiefs inspired glass eye that is just about halfway between cool and creepy. It sucks to lose an eye at any age, let alone when you’re a teenager, but props to Graham for making the best of a bad situation in his later years.
Arrowhead Addict has more info on Graham and his one-of-a-kind glass eye…
Meet Pomona, Kansas native Steve Graham. Steve is 58 and was born in Kansas City, Kansas. He lost his right eye in a dart accident back in 1967, at the age of 13. Two years later, Steve and his good eye watched the Chiefs win their first and only Super Bowl. He’s been a die-hard fan ever since.
Steve had the eye made ten years ago when he went in to have some replacement artificial eyes made. His Dr. suggested he have a Chiefs eye mad so he could show his spirit like nobody else when attending games. Steve took him up on it.
Steve doesn’t want to freak people out so he wears a regular glass eye that matches his remaining good eye when the Chiefs aren’t playing. But come game time Graham’s right eye socket is all about the Kansas City Chiefs, which complements his Derrick Thomas tribute tattoo surprisingly well.
A tattoo and a Chiefs glass eye? Without hyperbole Steve Graham is the greatest Kansas City Chiefs fan alive.
