Nick Wright is a happy man.

Not only did the “First Things First” co-host watch his beloved Kansas City Chiefs win another Super Bowl on Sunday after defending them at every turn during a difficult regular season, but he got even more confirmation when Quarterback Patrick Mahomes posted a message. Social media after the win: “Never a doubt.”

It’s the same phrase Wright often uses about the Chiefs and even has it tattooed on his left arm.

Wright sat on a throne and brought balloons and banners, but that was only the beginning. Here are the top moments from his victory march on Monday.

A subtle message on travel

Is the Tyreek Hill trade the next Herschel Walker trade?

A message for Mahomes
