Andy Reid loves to eat. This is no secret.
Reid was asked Thursday how the food was at the White House when the team visited there earlier in the week, and he sounded like a man who could not wait to speak about all the food he encountered.
“They did have some good stuff. They had a, I never had this before, a French toast, grilled cheese, and ham sandwich that they sprinkled a little bit of powdered sugar on. I mean, it was phenomenal. There was an abundance of this. Then they had chicken fingers, exotic chicken fingers to boot. And then maybe the best part was they had, which I hadn’t seen before, little bite-sized squares of the heart of the watermelon. My hat went off to the chef. I went back and talked to him. I just go, ‘You guys are unbelievable. Whoever cut all that out had the patience to do that, hat goes off to them.’”
Over the years, Reid has spoken glowingly of his fondness for cheeseburgers. After Kansas City beat the 49ers in Super Bowl 54, he said he was going to celebrate with “the biggest cheeseburger you’ve ever seen.”
In 2022, His players wrapped a cheeseburger and put it in a shoebox for Christmas.
“May you all get a gift as great as this,” Reid told the players. “Cheeseburgers in paradise, baby.”
This past White House visit was the first for the Chiefs after their earlier Super Bowl celebration was called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The most hilarious moment came after Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce posed alongside President Joe Biden. Kelce could be heard telling him to “stay right there” as he walked over to the microphone.
“So I’ve been waiting for this…” Kelce said into the mics, before Mahomes swiftly swooped in, pulling Kelce aside.
Thankfully for Kelce, this may not have been his final opportunity to grab the mic at the White House, with the Chiefs widely touted as one of the favorites to win Super Bowl LVIII in February 2024.
Should they accomplish this feat, it would mark the franchise’s fourth Super Bowl win, their fourth appearance at the game in five years, and it would be just the ninth time a team has won back-to-back titles.
Reid, a two-time Super Bowl winner, is hoping to add yet another trophy to the list and go back-to-back.
