FRANKLIN COUNTY, Kan. - When Steve Graham told his Facebook friends he was keeping his "eye" on Romeo Crennel he meant it.
Graham posted a picture of himself wearing his Chiefs arrowhead glass eye, with the picture and the comment going up the day of the team's first preseason game.
Since then, Graham has become something of an Internet sensation. The picture has been posted on hundreds of websites, and Graham was even interviewed on the NFL Network.
The eye itself isn't new - Graham says he got it 12 years ago from the man who makes new prosthetic eyes for him every four or five years. Since then, he's been showing it off to tailgaters every time he comes to Arrowhead Stadium for a game.
Graham lost his right eye when he was 13 years old after he was hit in the face with a dart. He says he wants his next glass eye to have a Kansas Jayhawk logo.
