“To be honest, a lot of things had to fall into place,” Kelce said. “I’m good with faces, not so good with names,” he said, laughing.
“I’ve always been interested in the TV aspect of things,” he said. I’m the big bad football player on a network (with) a fan base that has no (idea) really what sports is. It’s like, I’m doing this for the right reasons, so I need that out of you guys if I’m going to (do this).” But some of these girls have to be train wrecks, right? “You’re definitely going to see the train wrecks.” You’re also going to see Kelce struggle with names – or just avoid saying them altogether.
Never mind that they were like my brothers and weren’t my type; I just wanted nothing more than to rinse off the turf and sweat and get some Gatorade and grub. I don’t think your remarks about gays not being accepted in the NFL, and being nervous about being the shower with a gay teammate come from a place of hate. Look back to when the first woman tried to run the Boston Marathon, when Jackie Robinson entered Major League Baseball, or when female reporters finally gained access to professional male athlete locker rooms.
Let’s take a look at what a locker room and shower look like with 100 football guys in it. I loved my teammates, but let’s be honest, not every football player looks like they can be on the cover of "Men’s Health." Imagine a big room that has sweaty, nasty workout clothes hanging everywhere, tape and other garbage lurking in corners, and a toilet area that doesn’t exactly smell like roses. And when you get in the shower, all you think about is avoiding icy cold water, pee in the drains (don’t lie, you do it too), and the backside of some offensive lineman that desperately needs bathing. I think they come from a place of fear, lack of experience and insecurity. Having openly gay teammates will be a first for many players in the upcoming years.
Since 2014 he has been signed by the San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, Chargers again and Oakland Raiders practice squads, but then released.
For all of the people coming to my page thinking I wrote those comments🙄Reread!
After hours of hard practice in 105-degree August heat, I was hot, sweaty, sore, bruised, tired and hungry.
Hitting on my teammates was the last thing on my mind.
Travis Kelce dropped by CBS Sports Radio’s The Doug Gottlieb Show on Tuesday to discuss his new dating series, “Catching Kelce,” which premiers October 5 on E! “It doesn’t make sense,” said Kelce, who had 72 catches for 875 yards and five touchdowns last season. That ripped the heart out of all of us, but it put accountability even more so on everybody else.
They lost Jamaal Charles to a torn ACL in Week 5 and started 1-5 – only to win their final 10 games of the regular season and make the playoffs.
