When examining historic speeches, I think any top five has to include Mel Gibson, John F. Kennedy, and Jason Kelce. It’s Braveheart, presidential politics, and Eagles football, in no particular order.
“Kelce for mayor!” shouted the crowds after their football champion’s impassioned address, one hoarsely extolling the virtue of proving others wrong.
With his popularity immediately skyrocketing, SportsRadio 94 WIP then ran a poll: who would you vote for in a Jim Kenney vs. Jason Kelce election?
Who would you vote for in a Jim Kenney vs. Jason Kelce election?
— Jon Marks & Ike Reese on 94WIP (@MarksReeseWIP) February 8, 2018
As of Thursday night, Kelce was leading 98% to 2%.
Kenney happened to be listening in the car when the poll was mentioned on-air, so he dialed up Jon Marks and Ike Reese and dropped an accidental expletive that WIP safely dumped out of.
Audio after the jump:
One thing both candidates have going for them is that they both dislike the Cowboys, so that’s a win/win. Just gotta check with Kelce to get his stance on the Soda Tax, and then I’ll sit down with the Inquirer’s editorial board to write up a formal endorsement.
