What’s left to say about Jason Kelce that hasn’t already been said?

The Eagles’ center is a future Hall of Famer, a Super Bowl champion, a first-team All-Pro selection, a Pro Bowler, a team captain, a Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee, and an awesome dude. He’s universally beloved in a city that isn’t always quick to dole out unconditional and unwavering support.

But just when you thought Kelce couldn’t further add to his legend, his did exactly that by rocking a national anthem performance ahead of Monday’s night game at the Wells Fargo Center between the Sixers and Denver Nuggets.

Why was Kelce singing, exactly?

Well, why not.

But the explanation you’re looking for is that Kelce promised to do so if $100,000 was raised for Connor Barwin’s Make The World Better Foundation.

Though it pales in comparison to his Super Bowl parade speech, this was still pretty good work by Kelce. I laughed when he really leaned in to “The bombs bursting in air!

The Eagles are very happy to have Kelce, a true treasure, back for 2022. As is everyone in Philly.
