TKC BLOG COMMUNITY CELEBRATES CHIEFS STAR TRAVIS 'GREAT VALUE GRONK' KELCE AS KANSAS CITY ATHLETE OF 2017!!!
More than any other pro-sports dude . . . Travis Kelce epitomizes the role of pro-athlete in Kansas City culture.
It doesn't really matter if the Chiefs win or lose in the playoffs, he's gonna be fine either way and his quest for fame and continued fortune has very little to do with his play - Which has been brilliant at times and then mostly forgettable.
While Kelce took a knee in protest (mostly against Prez Trump) during the Star Spangled Banner . . . He didn't catch any hate from fans who have obsessed over the national anthem issue.
Kelce's post-touchdown dance moves have provided feel-good moments for Kansas City Chiefs fans who continue to have a moment of doubt regarding the playoff future for the team throughout 2017.
Nevertheless, Mr. Kelce serves as an important reminder that pro-athletes in Kansas City earn millions of dollars, their dating life is the stuff of tabloid legend and their careers are played out in the media like Shakespearean drama - And all of this is great but has very little impact or anything at all in common with the lives of their fans.
