Game day is here. The grass is green. Paint is dry. And the cameras are set. But before it's "lights camera action," seven grounds keepers who tend to Arrowhead Stadium go into overdrive. 

Between 85 and 100 gallons of paint are used to frame the nearly 2 acres of Northbridge Bermuda Grass before each game. A Clegg device is used to test how compact the soil is before kickoff. It has to be just right.

New this season: AFL logos are emblazoned in the end zones marking 50 years since Super Bowl I. The game and concept were developed by the late Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt. His initials are part of the new logo.
