Many professional athletes like to dress up for their games in order to make a statement, whether it’s about fame, fortune, a cultural message, or something else. Others may find the message to be cute and/or humorous rather than serious. Prior to the team’s Week 4 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, that was the case for Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce’s outfit.
On Sunday, October 3, the Chiefs’ official website and Twitter page shared photos of players arriving at Lincoln Financial Field. Kelce is wearing a collared long-sleeve shirt with blue stripes, tan corduroys, and black-rimmed glasses in one of the photos.
While it’s unclear what look Kelce was going for — though it appears to be intentional — Twitter chose the All-Pro tight end, claiming he looks like the newest host of Nickelodeon’s “Blue’s Clues.”

Travis Kelce on Playing His Brother, Jason in Week 4
That’s because he’ll be playing against his brother, Jason, who is Philadelphia’s starting center.
During his press conference ahead of Kansas City’s Week 4 game, Kelce reflected on the defending AFC champions’ last meeting with the Eagles on September 17, 2017.
“Just winning and having all of my family and friends come out to see the game at Arrowhead,” Kelce said. “On that day, we had a few people come in from Cleveland, as well as a lot of family and friends.” It was a great feeling to walk out of there with a victory. I’m not sure if Jason shared my sentiments, but it was definitely enjoyable. ”
Kelce also discussed his brother’s Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
“I mean, when he won his, I was in the stands crying,” he reflected. “It was an incredible game between him and the Patriots—back and forth, a lot of emotion, a lot of scoring, which is always entertaining to watch.” I remember being in the stands cheering for him to reach the summit, from being a walk-on linebacker at the University of Cincinnati to becoming an All-Pro and the stardom he’s achieved throughout his career. It’s been interesting to watch him grow into who he is, and people are drawn to him because he’s a fun guy to be around. ”
