Through some convergence of a sponsorship opportunity, a group of star tight ends hanging out, a Top Golf outing, and a mammoth drive by Travis Kelce, you should be getting some free beer sometime this fall.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has earned free beer for the team’s fans (who are obviously 21 years of age or older) for National Tight Ends Day, which is clearly the holiday we needed, on October 24. All of this is courtesy of Bud Light.
If you’re still a little confused, don’t worry. We are, too. All we know is that an official press release hit our AA inbox detailing the celebration of National Tight Ends Day with free beer for Kansas City fans due to Kelce’s performance in a recent challenge at a Top Golf location. George Kittle explains the context a bit more here:
Yeah, even that’s a bit of a mystery, but we reached out to Bud Light who confirmed Kelce’s winning shot went over 250 yards (they could not track distances beyond that). For that reason, Kelce won free beer for Chiefs fans, although a Bud Light representative spoke to us saying that details were yet to be worked out or announced in terms of exactly how you claim your free alcohol.
Here’s what we do know: if there was any single NFL player likely to earn you, dear fans, some free beer, I’m pretty sure most of us would have said “Travis Kelce?” in response. His athletic ability, proven production, charisma, and charm are pretty much made for an outing like this.
Kittle, who plays for the San Francisco 49ers, and Kelce recently completed the first ever Tight End University in Nashville this offseason along with Greg Olsen to help come together and share tips for others at the position. Other players who joined them include Zach Ertz, Kyle Pitts, Mark Andrews, Noah Fann, Hunter Henry and dozens of others. The Chiefs were also represented by Blake Bell at the event.
More details from Bud Light likely to come as this fall creeps closer. Remember, as with anything in life, make sure to participate in a responsible manner.
