To take their minds off cut-down day, Kansas City Chiefs rookie safety Daniel Sorensen and his wife, Whitney, decided to go to temple on Saturday afternoon. They stowed their cellphones in the car and spent the next two hours worshiping at a service off Interstate 435. Whitney was more nervous and eager than her husband -- "She likes to know," Sorensen said -- and they planned it perfectly when the service ended around 3 p.m. CT, the deadline for cuts. By then, Sorensen, a rookie safety from BYU, would know.
What they didn't anticipate was what a hot summer day in Kansas City weather does to an iPhone in a car. Sorensen's phone overheated, so they spent the next 10 minutes holding it next to the air-conditioner vents while driving on the freeway.
