Travis Kelce Describes How Special It Is to Receive Two Super Bowl Rings

13 February 2023, Monday
Travis Kelce described the past year as "the happiest year of my life," reflecting on winning his second Super Bowl title with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. For Kelce, the first Super Bowl victory was wonderful, but having two is what he considers truly life-altering.

Travis Kelce was overcome with emotion after the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl LVII win. He emotionally expressed his joy at the postgame podium, saying, "There's one thing about getting your first one, and it's a whole other feeling to get two. I wanted this one more than I wanted a game in my life. The guys in this locker room, the teammates that I have felt the same way."

Kelce's family, along with his mother Donna, got to experience his Super Bowl victory and feel his success in the national spotlight over the past couple of weeks. His brother, Jason Kelce, was a huge part of the Eagles' offense in 2022 and had been for the past 12 seasons. Travis himself has gone on to establish himself as the best tight end in the game.

For the past two weeks, the Kelces family have been a major part of the lead-up to Super Bowl LVII. Travis expressed his joy at seeing his loved ones become the focus of attention, with his mom being the focus of a jumbotron before the game. He also expressed his delight at being able to share the highs of the season with his brother, before eventually meeting him at the mountaintop. He went on to say that it was the best feeling in the world.

The Kelce brothers each entered Sunday with one Super Bowl ring. Little brother Travis walked away with a second one after the Chiefs prevailed in a 38-35 thriller. At midfield they embraced while confetti rained down on them. Reflecting on the surreal moment of their joint emotions, Travis said, "You joke around all the time and say that you want to beat your brother on the biggest stage ever, but it's a weird feeling. There's nothing really I could say to him other than I love him and he played an incredible year, an incredible season."

"I'm really happy for him," Jason said of and to Travis. "It's tough to reach this place. I haven't had time to process all the emotions yet. I'm sure we'll have a more emotional talk later. I'm still a bit frustrated.

"But really, really happy for Travis. He worked really hard. I would've loved to win, but that doesn't negate the fact that I'm overjoyed for Trav."

And don't forget, they don't have much time away from each other. Just two days if they stick to their podcast routine.

After a strong start with Travis accumulating 60 yards and scoring the Chiefs' first touchdown in the opening quarter, the Eagles shifted their strategy and denied him any catches until the third quarter. Despite this, Travis managed to clutch a terrific catch during the initial TD drive of the second half and ended the game with six receptions for 81 yards and a TD.  "Gonna be an awkward podcast," Jason jested.

Travis acknowledged following the game that the Chiefs were feeling the pressure to clinch the win for head coach Andy Reid. Patrick Mahomes separately corroborated this. Reid was on the brink of his second Super Bowl ring, going up against his former team, a team that he had not been able to deliver a Super Bowl title to. For Kelce, Mahomes and Reid, the stakes were high.

Kelce remarked, "For him going up against his old team, we really wanted to get this for him. You can call it whatever you want, but it happened here in Kansas City. There is a great deal of pride knowing Reid has been successful in two separate organizations, but this was the better one."

At halftime, with Mahomes struggling to play on an injured ankle, it didn't look good for the Chiefs. That's when Kelce stepped in to deliver his message: Let's go be ourselves. Let's go out there and play with a little more fire, for the guy next to you. The result of this and Reid's coaching style was the remarkable come-from-behind victory the Chiefs pulled off in the second half.

Kelce commented on Reid, expressing admiration for his ability to challenge a group of grown men without disrespect and to bring out the best in them. He stated that Reid was the greatest in accomplishing this task, and that he himself owed much to Reid and looked up to him as a leader.

Kelce seemed aware that his time with the Chiefs may be running out, exclaiming. I don't know how many I got left. But it appears they are determined to go for yet another Super Bowl win, with Reid suggesting post-game that any rumors of him retiring were unfounded. As Mahomes is still three years away from turning 30, they should be just as strong a contender next season. 

When asked if what the Chiefs were doing constituted a dynasty, Kelce responded. You can call it whatever you want. All I know is we're coming back next year with our heart and the right mindset to try and get another one.
