Travis Kelce brings down the house
KANSAS CITY, Mo. It was a replica louis vuitton bags celebration 50 1:1 replica handbags years in the making.
Thousands of fans gathered in downtown Kansas City on Wednesday to cheer on the Chiefs, fresh from their come from behind victory Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Despite temperatures in the 20s and wind chills in the teens, fans began lining the parade route before dawn, turning the public plaza in front of the city’s iconic Union Station into an ocean of red and gold. They high fived. They waved pennants. They danced even though they were wrapped in blankets. They climbed trees to get better views. “Go Chiefs!” echoed through the crowd.
They were cold and wet by the time the parade buses made their way up Grand Boulevard around noon local time, cheerleaders shaking shiny pompoms and red and gold confetti twirling through the air, mixing with the spitting snow.
Patrick Mahomes cheap louis vuitton bags from china and his teammates stood atop a string of red double decker buses, the young quarterback and game MVP wearing a red plaid jacket and holding a Bud Light in one hand. Waving his arms, Mahomes exhorted the fans to cheer as he hoisted the sterling silver Lombardi Trophy into the air, later bringing it close and cradling it like a baby.

The Chiefs had taken replica louis vuitton bags from china a pulse pounding route to the title. Three times they rallied from double digit deficits, including Sunday when they wiped out the 49ers’ 10 point fourth quarter lead before wrapping up a 31 20 victory.
When Mahomes addressed the crowd, his voice hoarse, he acknowledged the team’s replica louis vuitton handbags long journey to the title. Even though he was sidelined for part of the season with a knee injury, Mahomes said, “We still came back and won the Super Bowl!”
Some in the crowd probably shy of the 1 million fans that had been expected because of the frigid weather weren’t even born when the Chiefs captured their only previous Super Bowl victory in 1970.
“We’ve been waiting our whole lives for this, pretty much,” said Dana Tarantino, 37, a teacher from Overland Park, Kan.
Many of the surviving players from that team are well into their 80s; nine attended Wednesday’s parade.
“It’s been quite a journey,” said Greg Rudigier, 55, a salesman from Leawood, Kan., and longtime season ticket holder. “We came up short so many times, when there were such great expectations. To finally get this victory it’s beautiful.”
The 1:1 replica handbags franchise is based in Missouri but has long been a great unifier for residents of the Kansas City metropolitan area, which straddles Kansas and Missouri, two states that have been rivals since the guerrilla skirmishes of the Civil War. Fans said they already had forgiven President Trump’s congratulatory tweet Sunday, in which he wrongly praised the team for representing the “Great State of Kansas so very well” and was derided on social media.
“They’re just trying to divide and conquer us,” said Denise Hood, a lash technician from Liberty, Mo. “This is a time for us to come together, not be spread apart. We need this.”
Much of the fan love Wednesday was reserved for Coach Andy Reid, 61, who was the winningest coach in NFL history without a Super Bowl victory until Sunday dolabuy , and for Mahomes, the 24 year old Texas native known for his humble manner, rocket arm and exuberant head of curls, a haircut that little boys are now lining up at his Overland Park barber to copy. His arrival as a rookie in 2017, as the 10th pick of that spring’s draft, seemed to energize the whole city, fans said.
“He’s heaven sent,” said Marquita Simms, 49, a school bus driver from Kansas City, Kan. “I love it when he said he don’t just pray when times get hard, he prays all the time. We are people of faith, too.”
Franchise owner Clark Hunt replica louis vuitton told fans that his father, Lamar, one of the founders of the American Football League, shared before his death in 2006 that the best day of his life was the parade after Super Bowl IV. The trophy for the AFC champion is named in his honor.
That was a motivating factor, Mahomes said.
“When I became the starter for Kansas City, the first thing I wanted to do was bring the Lamar Hunt Trophy back to Kansas City, back to this organization replica louis vuitton handbags ,” he said. “And the second most important thing I wanted to do was bring the Lombardi Trophy to the best coach in the National Football League.”
Along the parade route at the corner of Pershing Road and Grand Boulevard, the talk of more titles fake louis bag had already begun.
“[Chiefs General Manager] Brett Veach has us set up for a dynasty,” said Mark Hosted, 32, a conveyor belt technician, told his buddies. “But remember Dan Marino? He went to the Super Bowl once at 23 and never made it back there again. That’s all I gotta say.”

Fight for your right to partyChiefs Coach Andy Reid and several players took the rally stage to cheap replica handbags fire up fans and predict that Kansas City will be hosting another parade this time next year to celebrate a Super Bowl LV victory.
“Next year we’re coming right back here,” said Reid, who was greeted with a standing ovation. “One more time, baby. One more time.”
Parade organizers saved the prime speaking spot for tight end Travis Kelce, one of the team’s most flamboyant characters. Wearing a $20,000 Louis Vuitton coat, he stepped to the microphone and shouted, “Can you dig it?”
Kelce’s brother replica designer handbags , Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, was the most memorable speaker at Philadelphia’s Super Bowl parade in 2018, when he took the microphone while wearing a full Mummers outfit. Travis Kelce brought the same intensity, but no costume, at one point apparently letting fly a stream of profanity that was caught and wiped out by television censors.
He did, however, manage to tell fans, “We unleashed a can of whoop ass on everybody.”
After acknowledging he’d had a few alcoholic beverages, he pointed to fans watching across the street on the hill of the World War I Museum and Memorial and shouted, “We represent and honor every single veteran that went to war for us in World War I!” he said. “Right here in the heart of America!”
“This is the most beautiful scene I ever witnessed in my life. I love this city to death,” Kelce later proclaimed before being played out by the team’s anthem, the Beastie Boys’ 1986 hit, “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party).”.
