How 3-time Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs enjoyed 1st White House visit | Podcast

The Chiefs went where their previous Super Bowl championship teams had not gone before ... to the White House. Meeting the President wasn’t a thing when they won Super Bowl IV, and the pandemic prevented the visit four years ago.

The team made the most of their moment on stage and backstage, touring the White House, then heard words of praise from President Joe Biden. On today’s SportsBeat KC, The Star’s daily sports podcast, we’ll hear his comments and those of Andy Reid and team president Mark Donovan, along with the other person who spoke at the podium, Travis Kelce, if only for a few seconds.

Also, Star columnist Sam McDowell, who covered the event, tells us what he saw — and how he felt — on his first trip to the White House.
