WATCH: Jason Kelce talks being best friends with the Phillie Phanatic after chugging beer together during the NLCS
Jason Kelce loves his beer. Just one look at the man and it’s pretty clear he’s a beer guy.
Kelce, like all of us, has been in a state of pandemonium since the Phillies have began this miraculous playoff run that they’re on. The Eagles center has been spotted at numerous playoff games at Citizens Bank Park this year. Before Game 3 of the NLCS commenced, Kelce was invited to the field by none other than the Phillie Phanatic.
The occasion? To chug beer and get the Philly crowd going. Based on how the Phillie fans reacted, I think Kelce and his new bestie succeeded.
Jason Kelce on chugging beer with the Phanatic
“Here’s what it is,” Kelce said. “We don’t get to be fans that often. Being at the game and truly being able to be a fan. I mean, the Phanatic is like, an iconic mascot. Kylie, my wife, cries sometimes when she sees the Phanatic… She is all in on the Phanatic and to be honest, I get it.”
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – the Philly fandom is contagious. It’s hard to put into words what it’s like to be a fan of this city’s sports teams. But once someone experiences it, they’re addicted. Jason Kelce has been here long enough to know that.
“I chugged that beer, saw that big green AYIAHHHH!”
Hopefully Jason Kelce and his new best friend have an encore performance once the Phils come home for Game 3 of the World Series next week.
