We as casual fans aren’t the only ones who miss NFL football, apparently.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost nearly found himself in a pretty sticky situation as he approached a Kansas City Chiefs minicamp. Yost had merely wanted to say hi to his neighbor at the Truman Sports Complex in Chiefs coach Andy Reid when he was surrounded by team security.

“I almost got arrested,” he told the Kansas City Star, “for taking a peek at the Chiefs doing their minicamp. They surrounded me with security. I’m not going to sell any secrets. They were fine once they figured out who I was.

Of course, they could not have known it at the time, especially considering what Yost was getting up to. Just taking a morning jog, he had figured he would stop by Reid’s office when he saw the helmets cracking against one another.

“I stopped to see what was going on,” Yost said, “and, boom, here came the security.”

We are pretty sure no one is heading to Kansas City to steal Reid’s and the Chiefs’ secrets.

On a side note, you have to love the fact that Yost uses the term “boom.”
