3. He's the most accessible Chief
Travis and Jason Kelce's podcast, New Heights, is just one example of how Kelce has made himself accessible over the years. Expressing your personality humanizes athletes and Kelce's outlandish, fun-loving vibes make him the perfect fit for the Chiefs.
It wasn't always Saturday Night Live appearances and touchdown dances. We saw Kelce labeled as as a bad teammate and immature after a series of unsportsmanlike penalities early in his career and we witnessed a young man grow as we grew as fans.
Who could forget Catching Kelce with the heartthrob attempting to find love on a reality show? Or the infamous "Foot Locker" postgame interview?
For better or worse, Kelce has always been the truest form of himself. Patrick Mahomes' perfect image can sometimes feel manufactured, as he's the ultimate example of a teammate and leader, but Kelce's flaws add a layer of authenticity we don't always see.
When Kelce eventually retires, I'll remember him as the greatest Chief of my life and my all-time favorite player. Until then, I can't wait to see how much more he accomplishes. Thank you for the joy and effort with which you play, Travis.
