Super Bowl: Five issues to find out about Jason and Travis Kelce
Throughout the summer season of 2021 — when the Kelce brothers have been 10 Professional Bowl alternatives, three Super Bowl appearances and two Super Bowl wins into their NFL careers — Travis dropped a bombshell throughout a podcast interview.
“My real name is ‘Kelss,’” he stated on an episode of “Bussin’ With the Boys,” inflicting a minor uproar with NFL followers anxious we had been mispronouncing the identify for a decade.
Technically talking, that’s precisely what we had been doing (and proceed to do) — as a result of that’s how they pronounce it.
Each brothers ended up elaborating on the matter. Seems, the right pronunciation is “Kelss,” however Jason and Travis at all times have passed by “Kel-see” due to a change their father made earlier in his life.
“My dad, at some point when he was working in the steel mills in Cleveland, Ohio, got tired of correcting everybody who was calling him ‘Kel-see,’” Jason instructed SportsRadio 94WIP in Philadelphia. “Apparently, the correct pronunciation, the standard pronunciation is ‘Kelss.’ That’s what the rest of the family goes by. So, my dad, out of pure laziness completely changed his last name. And now, I think we’re at the point where we’re both riding with ‘Ed Kel-see.’ He’s, for some reason, decided to change it and that’s what we’ve gone by our whole lives.”
