Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid is once again being fed jokes on his face mask.
This time, however, the coach is being jokingly accused of eating food in his very large face mask.
In December, fans took to social media to make fun of the same mask. The mask in question is a Kansas City Chiefs red mask that stretches pretty far from his face.
Fans were comparing it to a muzzle or a feed bag for a horse or other more lewd suggestions. One Twitter user even said, “Prove to me Andy Reid’s mask doesn’t have oats inside it.”
It seems like Reid failed to do that. Now, a very similar mask was once again in the picture for Super Bowl LV. Since it was one of the largest sporting events of the year, there was no shortage of jabs against the head coach.
This time fans were particularly entertained when they saw him chewing on the sidelines. He was likely just chewing on gum, but given his past with the “feed bag” memes, it was turned into more.
It certainly is entertaining to imagine Andy Reid chomping down on some Goldfish or Doritos, but most fans are imagining him as a horse eating from his feed bag. I personally get a lot of Squidward vibes from the mask. I was half expecting him to pull out a clarinet and perform “Sweet Victory,” (although that would not be fitting).
Despite getting teased before, Reid continues to wear his mask. It looks like there’s a lot of breathing (or snacking) room in there, after all.
Andy Reid’s Son
On a more serious note, Andy Reid also addressed the deadly car crash that involved his son, Britt Reid, which happened last week.
The multi-vehicle crash left a 5-year-old girl in critical condition in the hospital. He addressed the situation at the end of the game.
“My heart goes out to all those that were involved in the accident, in particular the family with the little girl who is fighting for her life. I can’t comment on it any more than what I am here. So the questions you have, I’m going to have to turn those down, but just from a human standpoint, my heart bleeds for everybody involved in that,” Reid said to reporters after the game, according to People.
Britt admitted to drinking before driving and said he had also taken Adderall. He has not yet been charged for the incident, however. One car, a Traverse, was pulled over off the interstate after running out of gas. Another car stopped to help. That’s when Britt struck the left side of the Impala, injuring the two children in the car.
The young girl, Ariel, is suffering from swelling and bleeding around the brain and is in critical condition.
His impairment and the entire situation continues to be under investigation.
