  •  In this stave, Marty is mean spirited to the children of the neighborhood because he doesn't believe in the hype of the Chiefs. His nephew even invited Marty to a Chiefs party and he Marty laughed in his face. His old pal, Luke, came to him in a dream and told him that three players were going to visit him and take him through the stages of his loyalty to sports teams.   
  • Stave 4
  • In this stave, Marty is visited by the spirit of the past, Derrick Graham. Derrick transports him to a Chiefs party thrown by his boss, Chris. Chris was a kind and let them his employees into his home to celebrate the joyous season. Marty is seen having a ball and being cordial with this coworkers. Then, the ghost takes him to a football stadium where there are a myriad of sports teams he can choose from. Graham shows him where he went wrong by cheering on the Raiders.

  •  Scrooge is still shaken up over his last experience so he wants this next spirit to have mercy on him. In this stave, Tyreek Hill takes him to see one of the other Chiefs players visiting children in the hospital and being genuinely good people.

Later that night he is taken to a gigantic Chiefs gathering and lives it up, but no one can see him.
  • In this stave, Patrick Mahomes' spirit shows him his fate if he doesn't open up to the Chiefs winning streak and the celebration of those around him.

  • “Am I that man who lay upon the bed?”
  • *points silently*
  • In this stave, Marty's fellow Raider fans show up to his house for a Raiders party. At first Marty plays along in his Raiders jersey, but then shows his new Chiefs cheer by ripping the jersey off to expose his red underneath. He then proceeds to leave his own party and head to the biggest Chiefs celebration of the season!
