Think you’re a Kansas City Chiefs fan? This Manhattan man has you beat, with the world record to prove it. – The Topeka Capital-Journal02.04.21

Tim Hrenchir|Topeka Capital-Journal

A tattoo of a Kansas CityChiefs arrowhead adorns one of Curt Herrman's biceps.

The original logo the team used from 1963 to 1971 istattooed on the other.

"I'm just a little obsessed, I guess," the Manhattan man said with a smile as he talked Monday abouthow his hobby of collecting Chiefs' memorabilia for the past 50 years recently gained him recognitionas aworld record holder.

The Spain-basedOfficial World Record organizationon Jan. 25 certifiedthe 59-year-old Herrman ashaving the world's largest collection of Kansas City Chiefs-related memorabilia.

"The fruit of his passion for Curt Herrman has led him to collect these pieces for 50 years," says the award certificate. "At present his collection amounts to 642 pieces."

Herrman is also seeking recognition from London-based Guinness World Records but hasn't heard back about a decision onhis application.

The information technologydirector and a vice president atManhattan's Community First National Bank, Herrman has collectedChiefs memorabiliasince 1970, the year KC got its first Super Bowl win.

Hesaid that while he's not absolutely sure his collection is the world's largest, no one has challenged that claim.

Herrmann keeps his memorabiliain a lovinglymaintained "Chiefseum" in the basement of his home. He watches most Chiefs games at home, though he tries to attend in person at least once a year.

As Herrmangavea Capital-Journal reporter a tour of his display, herecalled watching on TV as KCwon Super Bowl IV in January1970 while being coached by Hank Stram and quarterbacked by Len Dawson.

Herrman got his first piece of Chiefs' memorabilia for Christmas later that year. It wasan NFL-sized Franklin football emblazonedwith the team's logo, which remainspart ofhis collection.

The decades that followed brought seasons that ended in disappointment for Hermann and other devoted fans. The Chiefs were "not terrible" in most seasons but tended to losewhenever theymadethe playoffs, hesaid. The team'splayoff record was5-17betweenDecember 1971 and January 2019.

Meanwhile, Herrman wasbuildinghis memorabilia collection, which he saidhas a totalinsurance value of about $30,000.

That collection includes player figurines, game programs and tickets, autographed photos, helmets and jerseys,cardboard cutouts of players,replica championship rings, pieces of game-worn jerseys and Kansas City Star articles published when the Chiefs won the Super Bowl in January 1970 and when Stram died in July 2005.

Many of the items, including the newspaperarticles, are enclosed in frames Herrman made himself.

The collection also includesseven Chiefs clocks,a Chiefs bowling ball andChiefs-themed stuffed animals, fishing lures, bottle openers and cookie jars.

Herrman said he gotprobably more than 100 of the items as gifts from his wife, Becky Herrman, with whom hehastwo adult sons, Brodie Herrman and Mason Herrman.

"Every Christmas I always get one or two Chiefs things, and a lot of them are from her," he said.

About a year ago, Herrman said, he first soughtworld record recognition for his collection by applying on the website ofLondon-based Guinness World Records.

As far as Herrmanknows, that organization doesn't maintain any records categories regarding sports memorabilia collections, though it could always create one.

Guinness suggested it would "help things along" for Herrman to pay itan "expedite fee" of $5,000, though that would not guarantee he would getthe record, hesaid. Herrmanchose not to pay that feeand continues to await a decision from Guinness.

Meanwhile, media coverage of Herrman's bid for recognition fromGuinness got the attention of theOfficial World Record organization, which encouraged Herrman to apply.

"They were very good to work with," Herrman said. "They asked a lot of questions. They didn't just rubber stamp it."

Herrmansaid he provided OWRa large, detailed, itemized inventory ofhis collection, including photos and value estimates.

Healso complied with the organization's request that he arrange for three well-known people to verify his statements by filling out and submitting a form.

Those were Manhattan City Commissioner Aaron Estabrook, State Sen. Tom Hawk, D-Manhattan, andDave Lewis, Kansas State University's public address announcer for football and men's basketball games.

Herrman knew Estabrook from having servedwith him on the Manhattan school board, where Herrman said he isserving his 15th year.

Each of the three paid a visit toHerrman's Chiefseum, for which he maintains a Facebook site. He encouraged anyone who wishes to contact him to do so through that site.

While OWRdidn't ask Herrmanfor money,he said itoffered for a price ofabout $200 to provide him a framed, sealed copy of his certificate. He declined.

With the Chiefs preparing to play Sunday for their second consecutive Super Bowl victory, Herrman's collection has garneredincreased media attention.

He said a Louisiana TV station plans Sunday to conduct Zoom interviews at the same time withHerrman and with a fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the teamthe Chiefs will play.

Meanwhile, Herrman said hisdream continues to be forhis collection to be viewedby any current or former Chiefs player.

"Really, having it seen by anybody from the Chiefs organization would make my day," he said.

Dustin Poirier’s 27 tattoos and what each one means ahead of Conor McGregor rematch – Daily Star01.22.21

Dustin Poirier has revealed the stories behind his tattoos ahead of his fight with Conor McGregor at UFC 257 this weekend.

Poirier's ripped physique is covered in body art - and much of it has deep, personal meaning.

The 32-year-old has four women's names inked onto his body - those of his mum, wife and daughter and grandmother.

He also has a tattoo of the date he married his wife Jolie, a Japanese tattoo meaning 'the way of warriors', and numerous inks reflecting his religious faith.

The UFC star was inked for the first time aged 14, and all his tattoos have been done in his home town of Lafayette, Lousiana - with the exception of his daughter's name, which he had done in Florida.

In an interview with GQ, Poirier said: "My grandfather was in the Navy, he was a rougher gentleman and his chest and his legs were covered in tattoos.

"The first tattoo I got was when I was 14 years old. And it was a D on my shoulder with some flames on it and some dice.

"I'm not even sure why the dice and flames - maybe just being 14 years old.

"There came a point where I kept getting these street tattoos done over a few years and my mum told me to stop.

"She said she'd sign a consent to go to a real tattoo shop and do it legally with a real artist and you won't get a blood disease."

He insist he never planned to be covered in body art, saying: "It was just in the moment. That week it just came to me 'I'm going to get another tattoo' and just did it.

"Every tattoo, I can remember what was going on in my life at the time."

Here, Daily Star Sport looks at all 27 of Poirier's tattoos and what they mean, as described by Body Art Guru.

1. Parker Noelle

Pride of place on Poirier's right pec is the name of his daughter, Parker Noelle - who was born in August 2016.

Poirier said: "I have four women's names tattooed on me because I was raised by women so that's very powerful."

2. Tiger stripes

Covering Poirier's left pec is a tiger-stripe pattern, overlaid with Japanese writing saying 'bushido' - 'the way of warriors'.

He said: "I think i have always been a fighter and a warrior. I did not choose this, it kind of just happened, and I love this life.

3. Rose and falling petals

On the shoulder of his right arm, Poirier has a tattoo of a huge red rose with coloured rose petals falling from it.

4. Black bands on right upper arm

Black bands around Poirier's right bicep are a cover-up to a previous tattoo which read '337'.

Poirier said: "It was my area code and I thought it was done very bad.

5. Stars and fire

Covering most of Poirier's right arm are stars highlighted by orange-red fire - representing the fighter's relationship with God.

6. Phoenix

A phoenix on Poirier's inner right bicep represents rebirth - as a reminder to come back stronger from setbacks.

7. Jesus

Poirier has the name of Jesus inked on his right forearm to reflect his dedication to Christianity.

8. Portrait of Jesus

A portrait of Jesus Christ on the cross is another sign of his religious beliefs.

9. Glenda

Inked on his right wrist, Glenda is the name of his grandmother, who brought Poirier up.

10. Deann

This is Poirier's mum's name, and is inked on the centre of his right arm.

11. Japanese mask

On the inner side of Poirier's right arm is a large Japanese mask which again appears to refer to a warrior spirit.

12 and 13. Diamonds

Diamonds on both Poirier's wrists represent beauty and wealth - as well as the commitment between husband and wife.

14. Louisiana tiger

The tiger surrounded by flowers on Poirier's left shoulder is a symbol of strength and independence.

15. Magnolia Flower

The Magnolia Flower on his left bicep is a symbol of peace and harmony and is also the state flower of Louisiana, where Poirier was raised.

16. Mary's portrait

On Poirier's left forearm, the portrait of Mary with sun rays behind her is another symbol of his religious devotion.

17. 'Blood Bought Paid in full'

This is inscribed on Poirier's left forearm, and is again a nod to his Christian faith, referring to the crucifixion.

18. Chinese letters

Poirier has Chinese letters inked on his left forearm - but he has kept the significance of them to himself.

19. Tribal design

A tribal design on Poirier's left bicep forms part of the background for his tiger tattoo.

20. Red flowers

Red flowers also adorn his left arm, again forming part of the overall image of the tiger.

21. Spiderweb

A spiderweb on Poirier's left elbow is a symbol of being trapped or imprisoned - or maybe it just looks cool.

22. Inspire

The word 'Inspire' on Poirier's right hand is a continuous reminder for him to be an inspiration for himself as well as others.

23. Crown

A crown on Poirier's right hand could represent power - but Poirier says: "I dunno why, I thought it was cool.

24. Fleur-de-lis

The fleur-de-lis covering most of Poirier's left hand is the symbol of the French Royal Arms in Louisiana. It is also considered the symbol of peace and purification, and can represent a persons conversion into Christianity.

25. Roman Numerals

On Poirier's left hand, the Roman Numerals 'IX IV MMIX' represent September 4, 2009, the date of his marriage to wife Jolie - who has the same tattoo on her neck.

26. Faith

The word 'Faith', next to Poirier's fleur-de-lis, is another religious reference.

27. Cross

A huge cross on Poirier's right thigh covers up a street tattoo that went wronger when Poirier was younger - although it could be interpreted as another religious reference.

A lot of his art is deeply meaningful and personal - while there are some that just make good decoration.

He revealed in an interview with GQ that he got his first tattoo at just 14 years old.

Poirier, who fights Conor McGregor this weekend, said: "Where I'm from in Lafayette, Louisiana, a lot of guys had tattoos before they were 14.

"They were horribly done by tattoo guns, they were made at the house from guys who learned the art.

"She said she'd sign a consent to go to a real tattoo shop and do it legally with a real artist and you won't get a blood disease."

On his right hand Poirier has the word 'inspire' and a crown 'because it looks cool'.

And on his left hand is the word 'faith' and a fleur-de-lis - which is a symbol for French royalty.

The symbol is also close to his roots and features on the flag of his region, and also the nearby New Orleans Saints NFL side.

He also has four women's names inked onto his skin - his mum, grandma, wife and daughter.

Poirier explained: "I was raised by my mother and grandmother.

"I only have one tattoo that was done outside Lafayette and that's my daughter's name - I got that done in Florida.

"I have four women's names tattooed on me because I was raised by women so that's very powerful."

The 32-year-old MMA fighter also has the date he married wife Jolie in Roman numerals on the back of his left hand.

There's also a message paying homage to his Christian faith on his left forearm 'blood bought, paid in full'.

Poirier also has a dove on his right arm, along with a rose and rose petals falling.

7

His elaborate arm ink also includes Jesus, a star scene, a fire and a phoenix to represent overcoming things and rising up.

He has a Japanese mask on the inside of his right bicep and covered up the 337 area code tattoo because it was 'silly and done bad'.

The UFC star's left arm features a tiger on his shoulder, an outline of the state of Louisiana and a magnolia.

Poirier has a tiger stripe print across his chest over his heart, and in the middle of it is the Bushido code.

That means 'way of the warrior' in Japanese to represent his fighter's heart.

Kevin Gates Gets Threats From NBA Youngboy Stans, Heres How He Respond – Urban Islandz12.10.20

Kevin Gates is not worried about threats from NBA YoungBoy fans.

Instagram Lives sessions can be unpredictable, especially when artists let in random people who are free to say whatever they want during their momentary brush with fame. Thats what happened when Kevin Gates hosted an IG Live over the weekend and let in an anonymous user who immediately began trolling him. The follower who refused to show his face was immediately hostile, saying, Shut up, Kevin. Ill punch you in your jaw. Gates replied mockingly with, Aye, please dont hurt me. The mysterious troll added, YoungBoy is going to beat you up.

At this point Kevin really leaned into the sarcastic fear, saying, Oh, God no! Im hanging up. Im scared. Please, no.

No, God, no! He then erupted in laughter and set the IG user straight, adding, B*tch, this me, man. You better leave me alone before I take your b*tch shopping and give her some long, long, d*ck. It appears that this NBA YoungBoy superfan and troll was attempting to reignite some old beef between the two rappers, but Kevin wasnt taking the bait and decide to roast the camera-shy IG user instead.

Kevin Gates and NBA Youngboy have a complex history with a mix of a tattoo-worthy friendship and a tense falling-out. Back in 2018, the two collaborated on the 4 Respect EP and a few other tracks. Both artists are from Baton Rouge and their bond was once so close that Kevin had a tattoo of NBAs face permanently inked on his body.

Commenting on the decision on a different IG Live session, Gates explained, You can say what you want to, but in Louisiana wen we love somebody, we appreciate them while they alive and we get their faces its monumental. Since then, the two have drifted apart, possibly due to Gates hanging out with another artist NBA was beefing with.
