Kansas City on vic­tory pa­rade

The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport - Wash­ing­ton

– Kansas City Chiefs play­ers and coaches cel­e­brated their Super Bowl vic­tory over San Fran­cisco with sup­port­ers on Wed­nes­day with a two-mile down­town pa­rade and pep rally.

“This is the most beau­ti­ful scene I’ve ever wit­nessed in my life,” Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said. “I love this city to death. I prom­ise you from here to the end, I cher­ish every mo­ment with you all and I prom­ise you ev­ery­body here feels the ex­act same way.”

The Chiefs won their first Super Bowl ti­tle in 50 years on Sun­day by ral­ly­ing in the fourth quar­ter to de­feat the San Fran­cisco 49ers 31-20.

Kelce, whose older brother Ja­son gave a pop­u­lar speech two years ago when the Philadel­phia Ea­gles won the Super Bowl, drew huge cheers. Coach Andy Reid told the crowd that they should pre­pare for a sim­i­lar bash in 2021. – AFP
