Kansas City Chiefs fans weren’t too happy when Los Angeles Chargers safety Derwin James powerbombed their star tight end in Week 2, but for Travis Kelce, the monster tackle brought back childhood memories.

The hilarious Kelce reaction was elicited from him by his older brother Jason on the latest episode of their new podcast New Heights — and honestly, it’s the kind of reaction we’ve come to expect from the fan-favorite in his famed NFL career.

“Well, it’s not the first time I’ve been powerbombed,” Travis Kelce began after the inevitable question was asked about seven minutes into the game.

Jason Kelce chimed in — “That’s right, I used to powerbomb you the whole time you were growing up” — as if he were waiting to recall old memories.

A good sport, Travis was a very willing participant. “You actually put me through the hardwood floor in our living room,” he remarked as his older brother burst out laughing. “I forgot,” Jason claimed between chuckles when Travis quickly replied that he remembered it well.

“The feeling of knowing that Dad and Mom are going to come home to a hole in the ground wasn’t the best feeling in the world,” Travis continued, “never fulfilled [the hole]just put the couch over it.”

At this point, the two brothers were close to tears. Sorry mom and dad Kelce, we just have to note that up to boys will be boys.

Travis Kelce’s narration of Thursday night’s actual tackle was just as humorous as the memory he uncovered.

“We talked about this last week,” the Chiefs TE began, “Durwin’s an OG in the game, man. He’s one of the best security guys – I think he’s the best security guy ever.”

Travis continued, “I catch the ball and I think he missed me when in reality I could have just surfaced [field] and ran to the pylon and got into the end zone. It’s the worst thing when you watch it on film and get yourself in your head – I kinda deserved to be powerbombed in this situation for not getting to the end zone.”

Here is the true comedy began by Travis.

“I turned around, I did a cutback, and then he’s all over me like a bolt of lightning,” Travis said. “I mean he totally surprised me, the bottom man always wins in football. When I felt his arms wrap around my legs, I honestly had to laugh in my head. I’m like, ‘This isn’t going to end well for me.’ I’m going up What goes up must come down!”

For those wondering, there were no hard feelings between Kelce and James after the goal.

He explained, “The body slam was fun, but what was even funnier was the fact that he asked me about the play or about that ride — he was like, ‘Bro, are you good?’ What a great guy man. What a great guy.”

“Yeah solid guy,” concluded Jason Kelce after hearing the story.

Travis Kelce’s humility is refreshing as always, but he admitted he felt like a “WWE dummy” and a “Jabroni” for not scoring a touchdown in that game and another that followed. “You’ve got to find a way to get the ball into the end zone, man,” concluded the KC star, “that’s the bottom line” — he needs to hold himself accountable like all legendary athletes do.
