Jason Kelce loses only Super Bowl ring in pool full of chilli


It’s all fun and games until Super Bowl bling gets lost in a pool full of chilli.

That’s apparently what happened to newly retired Eagles centre Jason Kelce, who lost his Super Bowl ring during the live “New Heights” show in Cincinnati last week, as the New York post reports.

One of the events involved students securing a sock with championship-esque accessories — along with the actual ring — in two vats filled with chilli, spaghetti and cheese.

“There was an unfortunateness, as you guys know, this game existed because I continuously lose my Super Bowl ring, and I don’t even know if Travis still knows this, but I legitimately lost my Super Bowl ring in this event,” Jason said on Wednesday’s instalment (Thursday AEST) of the “New Heights” podcast he co-hosts with his brother, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

“They could not find it … all of this stuff has been thrown away so I think we can safely assume my Super Bowl ring is now in a landfill someplace in the Cincinnati-tristate area. I didn’t think that would happen.”

Jason, 36, won his lone Super Bowl with the Eagles in 2018 after defeating the Patriots, 41-33.

Travis, who is coming off his third championship with the Chiefs, didn’t mince words about his big brother.

“You’re such a f**king imbecile,” the 34-year-old tight end said.

Though attempts to find the ring went unfounded — a metal detector was brought in at one point — Jason theorised how the Super Bowl ring was lost.

“The only thing I can think of is at some point, the sock got kicked out of the three-way and it made its way out of the pool and that it was thrown away in some shape or form,” the seven-time Pro Bowler said.

“But yes, the Super Bowl ring is officially gone.”

The messy shenanigans took place during the Lombaby Games, an Olympic-style event in which students faced off against one another.

Jason explained earlier on Wednesday’s show that within the chilli concoction “were socks with some make-believe rings and then there was actually only one real ring”.

According to Jason, an insurance claim has since been put in.

“I think the insurance company might have some things to say about whether they’re going to cover that,” Jason said.

“Yeah, 100 per cent,” Travis replied, “especially if you’re telling the entire world how you lost it.”

Though Jason appears to have come to terms with the loss, he pondered if a new one could be made.

“Somebody at some point messed with my Super Bowl ring, which I’m fine with, I mean, it’s just a hunk of metal and I’ll just have another one made, I think? They can do that right?” he asked Travis, to which the tight end replied, “I don’t know, Jason.”

“Guess we’re going to find out,” Jason said.

Before moving on to a different segment of the podcast, Travis offered sound advice to listeners at home.

“Do not do what Jason’s doing,” the All-Pro tight end said.

Jason had previously lost his ring from the Eagles’ Super Bowl LII victory, with wife Kylie recovering the piece from the glove compartment of one of their cars, according to Talk Sports.
