Jason Kelce is the MVP of the Eagles’ Super Bowl Parade.
It wasn’t long into the celebration at the Art Museum when bearded, sparkly, fired-up King Kelce took the mic. He had us when in his scratching bellow he roared, “Philadelphia!” and the crowd went wild.

He wore Mummers garb. Threw out stray expletives. “Borrowed” a police bike. Sang that “We’re from Philly, F***in’ Philly” song with fans. Downed a beer on the parade route.
It’s like he was reading the minds of thousands of Philadelphians. He did exactly what every Philadelphian would do, had they been in his place. It was all too good.

And then he gave The Speech.
“We’re a bunch of underdogs,” he shouted. “And you know what underdogs is? It’s a hungry dog … Hungry dogs run faster! Everybody who said we can’t get it done? F*** you!”
He went on to name all the people who counted the Eagles out this season — Jason Peters was way too old, Carson Wentz didn’t go to a Division I school, Nick Foles doesn’t have what it takes and the list went on.

“No one wanted us, no one liked this team,” he screeched through his fast-fading voice. “No analysts liked this team to win the Super Bowl, and no one likes our fans.”
Kelce was the highlight of the day, and you’d better know that we (and the rest of the city) are here for it.
Here are some of his best moments, and some of the best reactions:
