The Kansas City Chiefs were on hand at the White House to honor their Super Bowl LVII victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, and star tight end Travis Kelce had another hilarious moment in him when the spotlight was at its brightest.
Kelce and MVP-winning quarterback Patrick Mahomes presented President Biden with a custom Chiefs jersey after the speeches, and Kelce decided it was his turn to speak at the podium.

«So I’ve been waiting for this,» Kelce said.
But he wasn’t exactly able to finish that thought.

Of course, Kelce is never afraid to say something into a microphone or camera lens. Hers «You have to fight for your right to party!» as she celebrated the Chiefs’ AFC Championship victory three years ago before winning Super Bowl LIV has become a rallying cry for the rabid fan base in the Midwest.
But Mahomes may have thought Kelce’s famous speeches would not be appropriate for the White House setting, considering he has been known to swear a few swear words on the spur of the moment. Winning Super Bowls and being in championship parades can do that to a person.
Instead, President Biden and Chiefs coach Andy Reid were the only ones to speak during the ceremony, with Biden taking first place.
He made sure to mention his wife, First Lady Jill Biden,’s loyalty to her Eagles, as she is a «Philadelphia girl.»
“Fortunately, she is abroad at the moment in the Middle East. She is a rabid Eagles fan and the way she finished the game, she could be in for a rough night,” Biden said jokingly.

Biden added that his wife doesn’t believe cornerback James Bradberry’s admission that he held Chiefs receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, leading to a game-changing penalty and setting up Kansas City perfectly for a game-winning field goal. of the game. The first lady didn’t think she should have called herself a holding, and other Eagles fans are likely to back her there.
«If the Kelce family can make it work with Travis and Jason, the first two brothers to play each other in the Super Bowl, there’s hope for the rest of us.»
The Chiefs were unable to visit the White House when they won Super LIV over the San Francisco 49ers due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
