Jason Kelce's house has been an alternate universe in Philly sports these past couple of weeks.
Through the New Heights podcast with his brother Travis, the NBA's Larry O'Brien Trophy paid a visit last week.
And this week?
Lord Stanley showed up at his door.
Check it out:
Our most glorious guest yet paid a visit to Jason and Trav is officially jealous 😂@JasonKelce @tkelce @NHL @StanleyCup pic.twitter.com/MZ5CEx5L3c— New Heights (@newheightshow) May 25, 2023
Decked out in Flyers gear, the Eagles center – and former hockey player himself – gave the Cup a hug and a kiss on each of the Flyers' engravings from '74 and 75.
The only thing he couldn't do, Keeper of the Cup Mike Bolt said after wheeling it in, was pick it up.
"The rule is, Jason, you can put your arms around it, you can hug it, you can kiss it, if you feel the need to lift it, you have to go win it."
The Flyers, of course, are nowhere near lifting the Cup right now while the Sixers fell a couple of rounds short of the O'Brien Trophy once again.
So the podcasts' past two guests are incredibly cool, though maybe just a tinge painful right now.
But still overall cool.
All these trophies keep coming to my house for some reason instead of Trav’s…. Great memory for dad, and a traumatizing event for my children. pic.twitter.com/zgdch6k31j— Jason Kelce (@JasonKelce) May 25, 2023
The full "New Heights" episode with the Cup below, which includes a story about Claude Giroux trying to arm wrestle Kelce, which sounds exactly like Claude Giroux:
