KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) – Kansas City native Paul Rudd will be pumping up the crowds at the Chiefs’ AFC Championship game.
The famous comedian and actor was selected as this Sunday’s Spirit Leader up on the Drum Deck. The Big Slick cohost isn’t shy about his love for all things Kansas City, including its barbecue and the Chiefs.
In February, he was the host of the annual NFL honors show and announced that Patrick Mahomes had won the league’s MVP award.
Rudd will be joined by Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt, who will bang the drum as the Drum Honoree.
Hunt is the son of Lamar Hunt, the founder and original owner of the Chiefs, and if the Chiefs can get the win Sunday, the AFC Championship trophy they’ll be rewarded with is named after the elder Hunt.
