Good luck going anywhere these days without hearing or seeing something that has to do with Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce or his younger brother, Travis Kelce, the star tight end of the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The former was recently dubbed one of the “Sexiest Men Alive” by “People” magazine. The latter is dating Grammy-winning superstar Taylor Swift.
Together they host one of the hottest podcasts in America, lent their voices to a Philly-centric Christmas album, and have transcended the NFL to become pop culture icons in their own right.
“It’s been a whirlwind,” admitted Jason Kelce, who will try once more to beat Travis and the Chiefs for the first time when the Eagles visit Arrowhead Stadium on Monday night for a rematch of the Super Bowl.
“It kind of started last year with the podcast and everything, and I think it continued to grow more and more,” he said.
It’s been on hyperdrive since the Chiefs rallied to beat the Eagles for the Lombardi Trophy in February.
That is when many football fans began to latch onto their podcast, “New Heights, with Jason and Travis Kelce,” where the duo provided a glimpse of their lives behind their facemasks. The Kelces rap on everything from what happened that week in the NFL to what happened in the worlds of TV and entertainment, all with a stunningly disarming sense of humor.
