KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It’s got a nice ring to it: The Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions.
After the Chiefs’ fourth-quarter rally to top the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in the Super Bowl, giving the team its first championship in 50 years, many took to social media to share in the excitement with Chiefs Kingdom.
LL Cool J gave props to Chiefs rookie wide receiver Mecole Hardman Jr., who rocked an old-school vibe during a recent pregame stroll.
Mayor Quinton Lucas said it sounded like a good time to have a parade. The Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade will be held at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in downtown Kansas City. 41 Action News will be the official broadcast partner for the parade.
LET’S HAVE A PARADE WEDNESDAY!!!!!!
