Seventeen years ago, Bill Clinton was halfway through his first term in the White House, Boyz II Men were on top of the pop charts, 'Forrest Gump' and 'Pulp Fiction' were the big movies at the box office and Beanie Babies were on the cusp of becoming a phenomenon.
That year, 1994, was also the last time the Kansas City Chiefs won a playoff game.
A week after defeating the Pittsburg Steelers 27-24 at Arrowhead in overtime in the AFC Wild Card game, the Chiefs, led by QB Joe Montana and RB Marcus Allen along with LB Derrick Thomas and DE Neil Smith, beat the Houston Oilers in Houston 28-20 on January 16, 1994, to advance to the AFC Championship Game against the Buffalo Bills.
The game was so long ago, the Houston Oilers don't even exist anymore. The team moved to Tennessee in 1997 to become the Titans.
For many Chiefs fans, the memories of 1994 are fuzzy at best.
"I don't even remember where I was at in '94," said Chiefs fan Bob Ingram.
The Chiefs are currently riding a six-game playoff losing streak, dating back to that AFC Championship Game against the Bills, which they lost on a bitterly-cold day in Buffalo 30-13. The streak is so long that one more loss would set an NFL record for post-season futility - the team is currently tied with six other teams for the dubious mark.
But many Chiefs fans have at least some faint memories about that last win in the Houston Astrodome against Warren Moon and the Houston Oilers.
"I remember we tore them apart," said Chiefs fan John Jacobs. "And we probably had a few sacks by Dan Saleaumua, Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith. I remember the defense honestly. That's all I remember was the defense."
For the record, Albert Lewis, Joe Phillips, Bennie Thompson and Derrick Thomas each recorded two sacks in the game against the Oilers, while Neil Smith had one.
But while the names, music, movies and president may make some people feel old, for many Chiefs fans it's just a reminder that the team may be due for some post-season success. One Chiefs fan, when asked of his memories, summed up the year 1994 succinctly.
"Only that we won," he said.
