Todd Haley scores points with Lil Wayne

Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Todd Haley scored major points with his Kansas City Chiefs players after he was spotted at a Lil Wayne concert at the Sprint Center on Monday night.

The 41-year-old head coach promised to attend the rapper's show after the Chiefs used one of his songs as part of a video for their pregame warm-up last season. Haley recalls saying, "If he comes to town, and I get an opportunity to give him a copy of it and thank him, I'll do it."

Haley called it "a great show," and Lil Wayne tweeted at him and Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers afterward: "Props to Tech 9 and the KC Chiefs Coach Haley and #24 B. Flowers for the luv!"

Several players said they appreciated Haley's taste in music, though they weren't told that Haley admitted to listening to Barbara Streisand and Bobby Vinton, too.
