We’ve all been using the wrong Travis Kelce pronunciation, and both Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs fans cannot believe it.
We all owe Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce a massive, massive apology. No one would have guessed it, but everyone has been mispronouncing his name for years. This week, Kelce revealed that the his name is actually pronounced ‘Kelss’ and not ‘Kel-see.’ Who knew?
Even Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill had no idea. As you might have been able to guess, folks are losing it on Twitter, as their minds are actually blown in this case.
Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs fans react to new Travis Kelce pronunciation
Why in the world did Kelce wait so long to say something? In the video above, he said that he kind of just rolled with the punches. With that said, he surely could have spoken up prior to Thursday. Now, it almost feels weird not calling him ‘Kel-See.’ Again, people can’t believe this.
This takes put some respect on his name to a whole new level. Moving forward, Chiefs players, coaches and the team’s broadcast team will have to make the necessary adjustments. For Kelce, he’s getting ready to begin the 2021 season and he’ll no doubt have monster expectations.
He’s without question one of the best tight ends in the game. Last season, the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder posted a mind-blowing 105 receptions for 1,416 yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s a machine for Kansas City and one of Mahomes’ favorite targets.
The two will look to keep the magic going in ’21 and try to get back to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive season. After each big play, though, let’s hope folks get his name right moving forward.
