Tom Brady’s pregame jog brought him in the vicinity of Travis Kelce. The Patriots quarterback was visibly fired up and let the Gilette Stadium crowd know about it with an aggressive fist pump. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end followed that up with a similar gesture. The two also apparently exchanged words.
Was Kelce mocking the four-time Super Bowl winner or is this simply a case of two football players displaying emotion in routine ways?
The answer seems obvious.
Treating Brady like anything less than the Second Coming is the quickest way to make yourself Public Enemy No. 1 in Boston. Kelce knew exactly what he was doing.
It may shock some of you but many football players rely on stuff like this to motivate them for a big game.
