Chiefs Embrace the Spectacle of Super Bowl Media Night in Miami

Super Bowl Media Night has become an event of its own over the years, bringing players from both teams face-to-face with thousands of reporters and cameras. It's an Opening Ceremonies of sorts that kicks off Super Bowl week in style, and this year – the first Super Bowl media session attended by the Kansas City Chiefs in 50 years - was no different.

Here are some of the best moments from Media Night.

1. Chiefs Chairman & CEO Clark Hunt explained when the reality of Kansas City playing in the Super Bowl really sunk in for him.

Hunt hoisted the Lamar Hunt Trophy, which bears the name of his father, for the very first time a little over a week ago at Arrowhead Stadium. Now, Hunt and the rest of the organization have their sights set on securing the Chiefs' first Lombardi Trophy in a half-century.

2. This kid wants to be just like Patrick Mahomes.

Among the thousands of media members partaking in Monday night's festivities were several "kid reporters" keen on asking their favorite players about how they reached the pinnacle of professional sports.

The interaction between Mahomes and this young fan is what it's all about.

3. Mahomes also caught up with Michael Irvin to preview Super Bowl LIV.

Irvin caught up with Mahomes to discuss a variety of topics, from drawing motivation from last year's loss in the AFC Championship Game to the Chiefs' journey to the Super Bowl this season.

4. Head Coach Andy Reid told Irvin that he knew Mahomes was going to be great after getting to know him.

Reid – sporting one of his trademark outfits – had some high praise for Mahomes.

5. Tyrann Mathieu seems pretty excited to play in his first career Super Bowl.

Mathieu signed with the Chiefs last offseason with this very goal in mind. All these months later, the man they call "The Landlord" is a major reason why Kansas City is in the Super Bowl.

6. Media Night is just as much about fun as it is anything else. We helped create some of that on Monday by presenting Travis Kelce with the "Presser Challenge."

This is hilarious.

7. Speaking of ridiculousness, Chiefs' center Austin Reiter had some hard-hitting questions for fellow lineman Mitchell Schwartz.

8. Elsewhere, Offensive Line Coach Andy Heck handed out some superlatives to the big guys up front.

9. Frank Clark was asked about his new sunglasses and his answer did not disappoint.

On a more serious note, Clark caught up with BJ Kissel to discuss the importance of the late Kobe Bryant in his life.

10. Terrell Suggs explained what the last several weeks have been like since he joined the Chiefs.
