Mahomes and Matthews endure a frigid Super Bowl parade
A few days after winning Super Bowl LIV, Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs celebrated the victory with a massive parade in Kansas City, Missouri. Although it was only 27 degrees outside, Matthews braved the weather and joined her boyfriend for the festivities.
Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews appeared together on the main float that made its way through Kansas City. Thousands of fans gathered to see Mahomes and his teammates, and Matthews later shared a slew of photos from the event on social media.
Several players mingled with the crowd along the parade route, but Mahomes and Matthews stayed on the double-decker bus.
In light of the weather, Mahomes and Matthews bundled up for the occasion. Matthews donned an adorable white beanie for the event while Mahomes rocked some ski goggles and a red flannel coat.
According to The Blast, the parade wrapped up with Mahomes giving a short speech to fans. The Chiefs star revealed that winning the Super Bowl has always been a major goal and that he was thrilled to have won it for a great coach like Andy Reid.
“When I became the start for Kansas City, the first thing I wanted to do is bring the Lamar Hunt trophy back to this city and organization,” Mahomes shared. “And the second most important thing was to get the Lombardi Trophy for the greatest coach of all time!”
