Neighbor Kids Gather With Homemade Signs To Send Chiefs Rookie Off To Super Bowl In Style!

View from behind of three little kids holding up signs as they stand on the road in their neighborhood. They're giving Rashee Rice a sweet send-off to the Super Bowl.

Last night’s Super Bowl was neck and neck, sending the two teams into overtime before the Kansas City Chiefs took the coveted title. In order to prepare for the biggest sporting event in the United States, players on both teams worked hard to prepare for game day. To help, fans and loved ones showed their support in the sweetest ways. For Rashee Rice, this includes his neighbors.

Rice is a wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs. He joined the team during the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft, making him a rookie. Needless to say, making it to the Super Bowl was a massive deal for the young player. His neighbors understood this as well, taking the time to hold up signs for him as he left for Vegas.

This adorable moment was captured and shared on TikTok. In the video, multiple kids can be seen holding up hand-made signs. As Rice starts to drive away, they cheer him on, as do the adults who are with them.

In turn, Rice rolls down his car window. He gives them a wave as he makes his way to help the Chiefs secure their back-to-back championship! To show his appreciation for their support, he shared a clip of their send-off on his Instagram stories.
