A few days before the NFL Super Bowl LVII edition is held in Arizona, Jason Kelce and his great personality paid tribute to Mexico during Opening Night last Monday. The player accepted the request to put on a charro hat and shout the typical “Long live Mexico!”
At the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, home of the Phoenix Suns, it was where the Philadelphia Eagles performed before the Super Bowl on February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale (Arizona). The video of the moment was shared on social networks by the official NFL account. “Leave your for this Jason Kelce with a hat and shouting” Viva México! “, they wrote.
This Super Bowl is unprecedented for several aspects and Kelce was questioned about one of them during the event. The five-time first-team NFL All-Pro pick will face his brother Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
His opinion on this situation was disclosed with a bit of humor. “Whoever wins this one is going to have the ultimate bragging rights,” he said as he boasted that when they fought as kids, he almost always won.
The leader of the Eagles’ offensive line also wanted to act as a leader and sent a message to his teammates to stay focused before a top-level game like they will have.
“I think the best thing, for the last time I played with a number of veterans who have been here before, Chris Long, Torrey Smith, LeGarrette Blount, Malcolm Jenkins who have won a Super Bowl before. The key is to stay away from distractions, do your best, be careful. We have a great team, which is here because of the talent, the coaching we have, ”he explained.
Kelce is one of the veterans who made the champions’ roster at Super Bowl LII in 2018, five years ago.
