From Patrick Mahomes addressing the fans with 'We are champions, baby' to head coach Andy Reid predicting another Super Bowl parade for the following year, the massive celebration got fans excited even before the rally began. However, the Chiefs officially reserved a special spot for a speech by Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who is widely known for his flamboyant personality.
Travis Kelce took the microphone and instantly fired up the fans with a passionate speech. Kelce donned the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt around his waist and even yelled Booker-T's signature 'Can You Dig it' to get the fans excited. The 30-year-old paid homage to the veterans of World War I before honouring coach Andy Reid for ending his 21-year wait for a Super Bowl trophy.
“This is the most beautiful scene I ever witnessed in my life. I love this city to death" - Travis Kelce roared before being played out by the team’s anthem
Soon the speeches gave to the massive rally where the Chiefs players boarded an open-top double-decker bus while the fans joined in ecstasy.
