'Somebody is going to go home a loser, and neither one of them lose very well,' she said. However, both players will not be facing off directly.
Super Bowl LVII will have the Kansas City Chiefs playing against the Philadelphia Eagles on February 12, Sunday. But the Kelce family will be in a dilemma on which team to support as brothers, Jason Kelce, 35, and Travis Kelce, 33, will be on the opposing teams. Both parents, Ed and Donna Kelce, are said to have juggled games all season. Moreover, their mother was in Tampa Bay and Kansas City on the same day for catching games. After she got to know that her sons will be in the Super Bowl, she tweeted, "#HeightsHighandUCBearcatSuperBowl" referring to Travis and Jason attending the Cleveland Heights High School and then the University of Cincinnati.
In an interview with Fox8, Donna spoke about how she feels about her sons competing against each other. "It’s your hopes and dreams coming true, but it’s your worst fears," she said. "Somebody is going to go home a loser, and neither one of them lose very well," as reported by CBS8. Donna will be the first mother whose two sons are playing each other in the Super Bowl, as reported by kcby. However, both players will not be facing off directly as they both play offense. Jason is an All-Pro center for the Eagles and Travis Kelce is an All-Pro right end for the Chiefs.
Both players are seen as important cogs of their respective teams. Jason's "blocking dominance" helped his team to have a first-half lead against the San Fransico 49ers in the NFC Championship matchup. Travis after their team's win against Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship had seven catches for 78 yards and a touchdown. When Travis was asked about the match against her brother in the Super Bowl, he said that "my mom can't lose. I'll just leave it at that."
The Kelce brothers are not the only ones who are creating history at the Super Bowl. This will also be the first time that two Black starting quarterbacks will be competing at the game. Patrick Mahomes will be leading the Chiefs and Jalen Hurts is leading the Eagles. If the Chiefs win against the Eagles, Mahome will become the first Black quarterback with multiple Super Bowl winds. If it's the other way around, Hurts will be the fourth quarterback to win a Superbowl. Others who have won in the past are Mahomes, Doug Williams, and Rusell Wilson.
I'm so proud to see Jalen and Patrick as the first 2 African American QBs to face each other in the Super Bowl!— Warren Moon (@WMoon1) January 30, 2023
We have come a long way. 🙌🏽
This has become an ongoing conversation on Twitter. Warren Moon, a Hall of Fame NFL quarterback, tweeted, "I'm so proud to see Jalen and Patrick as the first 2 African American QBs to face each other in the Super Bowl! We have come a long way. 🙌🏽" Magic Johnson also pointed out that both quarterbacks are also in the running for the NFL's MVP title. "What a historic moment, this will be the first time two Black starting quarterbacks will face each other in the Super Bowl, and they both are leading candidates for NFL MVP! I can’t wait to watch!" he wrote.
