Kelce's epic parade rant immortalized in legendary tattoo

Kelce's epic parade rant immortalized in legendary tattoo

Jason Kelce’s legendary speech on the steps of the Museum of Art will live on in the memories of Philadelphians forever.

Sports fans like to throw hyperbole around pretty frequently, but Kelce’s impassioned rant will go down as the greatest celebration speech in this city’s history.

And Kelce’s majestic Mummer’s attire and expletive-laced speech will live on one fan’s leg for the rest of his life.

Jordan Clarius shared an image of Kelce’s beautiful mug rocking his Mummer’s hat with the simple words “F*CK EM” underneath. The Internet loved it.

We spoke with Clarius on Friday about his new ink that was done on Thursday night by one of his best friends, Keith Reed, at Xtreme Ink Tattoo in West Chester, PA.

Clarius, a 37-year-old West Chester resident who has been a Birds' fan since he was nine, is "completely covered from his hands to neck" in tattoos so the new Kelce jawn was a logical addition.

"It wasn't a huge deal to me," he said. "I was planning to get an Eagles championship tattoo for a while. I was thinking maybe a talon holding the Lombardi trophy but then we were sitting at dinner last night after attending the parade on Broad and I was scrolling through Twitter and I saw the image of Kelce in the Mummer's gear."

Clarius took a screen shot from his phone and sent it to the artist.

"I texted it to my buddy Keith and asked him if he could do something with it. He said the shop was a little slow and that I should go over tonight. I showed up an hour later, he had the image of Kelce's head sketched out, with the 'F*CK EM' under it. I was like, 'I'll totally get a tattoo of that.'"

"If I didn’t think you would, I wouldn’t have drawn it,” Keith replied.

So how did Clarius feel this morning waking up with Jason Kelce on his body?

"Pretty awesome to wake up to. I got it super high on my thigh. One of the best parts is that Kelce is right next to a portrait of Ol' Dirty Bastard I got done about 15 years ago."

But the tattoo hasn't been without its repurcusioins.

"It was hysterical. Getting ready for work this morning, my phone just kept blowing up, I've been extremely unproductive at work today."

Haven't we all.

Here's Clarius with his daughter on Broad Street at the parade and a shot of his ODB tat from when he first got it 15 years ago:

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies. 

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
