If Jason Kelce seemed a little sad during the most recent episode of his podcast New Heights, it'd be hard to blame him. While he hasn't officially announced his retirement yet, it seems pretty certain that the news is coming, and listening to Jason struggle to get through his thoughts about playing in the NFL without choking up was telling. His next public appearance was ... not so somber.
That's the Kelce we all know and love. Shirtless, screaming, and getting literally every crowd he's in fired up. Maybe some beers were involved, who knows. Temperatures in Buffalo are hovering in the low 20's which is nothing for a (maybe former?) NFL lineman. And those celebrations didn't just stay in the suite, either:
Kinda bold of Kelce to jump into a section full of Bills fans, who maybe boo him a little harder than he originally expected. It wasn't even the first time on Sunday night that he hung out drinking with people at the game:
Is that a bowling ball? Why is everyone treating this like it's a very normal thing that happens all the time? Is this some sort of Bills tradition that no one else is even remotely brave enough to try. If he truly is done playing in the NFL, Kelce could have a second career doing a NFL-tailgate version of Divers, Drive-Ins, and Dives. He truly is a man of the people, and hopefully just because he's not suiting up for the Eagles every Sunday doesn't mean he'll disappear entirely. Because the NFL needs grainy, vertically-shot videos of Jason Kelce doing weird drinking games. We all deserve that. If the Chiefs manage to make it to the AFC Championship game, surely there's an Old Bay-themed stunt in Kelce's future.
