The Kansas City Chiefs have made zero references to planning a parade to celebrate a second straight Super Bowl victory. That didn’t stop the local government, though.

On Sunday, the Chiefs will host the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game. Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas evidently does not believe in jinxes – or he’s overlooking the Bills, and to an extent, the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Bucs.

On Tuesday during a daily briefly, Lucas discussed an upcoming Super Bowl parade not going down in the traditional sense because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Doing so is a smart decision.

Saying that despite the Chiefs being two games two wins away from having to plan a parade? Uh, that’s bold.

“A Chiefs parade, in the classic sense as we knew it, is highly unlikely, indeed won’t happen,” Lucas said via the Kansas City Star. “There will be different ways that we come up with to try to celebrate.”

“Don’t get me wrong, I am so excited about the Chiefs playoff run,” he added. “House parties, a lot of the things that we actually thought could be concerns during the holiday season, come in this sort of holiday season part two.”

A smart gesture in terms of health and safety, yes.

But again, maybe a little soon for that, Quinton?

Don’t be surprised if this is some bulletin board material at One Bills Drive this week.
