Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce has been one of the biggest celebrators of the team’s Super Bowl win over the last month.
After debuting his Mummers garb and shouting expletives during an impassioned speech in front of hudreds of thousands at the victory parade, he’s been making cameos throughout Philly, including a sax-playing role with the Mummers during their Mardi Gras parade in Manayunk a couple weeks ago.
Kelce continued his impromptu victory tour of Philly during an appearance at Wednesday night’s Philadelphia Flyers game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Accompanied by Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks, the pair led the stadium in cheering for the Flyers and singing the Eagles fight song.
And, yes, Kelce was wearing a bedazzled Flyers Mummers hat, courtesy of the Avalon String Band.
The Flyers gave Jason Kelce a fancy hat and then he did a Stone Cold impression. pic.twitter.com/k3B6ccBH9W— Dan McQuade (@dhm) March 8, 2018
That’s a tremendous hat, Jason. 😂 pic.twitter.com/X3ggIySh5d— NBC Sports Philadelphia (@NBCSPhilly) March 8, 2018
It was a happy surprise for fans, though the Penguins ended up securing a 5-2 victory.
Best part about the Flyers game tonight was Kendricks and Kelce leading a Fly Eagles Fly chant with us tbh— Michael Berenotto (@MikeBerenotto32) March 8, 2018
Champions like Mychal Kendricks and Jason Kelce don’t deserve to be forced into the same vacinity as the flyers— tori 💚🦅 (@flyerator) March 8, 2018
Jason Kelce in a giant Flyers hat ... can we just make it official and declare him King of Philadelphia?— The Wookie (@NJWookie) March 8, 2018
Kelce is drunk at the Flyers game. Living his best life with Kendricks— José May (@mylekay) March 8, 2018
Only the flyers would let the flyers score after a Jason kelce pump up speech— Courtney Doyle (@courtneydelphia) March 8, 2018
Somebody just gave Jason Kelce a microphone. He's yelling, of course. He's also getting a bit older so maybe he can work as the Flyers' new Big Screen guy sooon? ... Please?— Rob Parent (@ReluctantSE) March 8, 2018
It was certainly a welcome treat for everyone who braved the elements to go to the game. Now the question is: where will Kelce show up next?
