Chiefs HC Andy Reid Congratulates the Royals on Their World Series Victory

Reid spoke in his first press conference since arriving home from London


After the Chiefs defeated the Detroit Lions, 45-10, Kansas City shifted its attention to game 5 of the World Series Sunday night.

The Kansas City Royals defeated the New York Mets, 7-2, to clinch their first World Series championship since 1985.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid commented on the accomplishment Monday morning.

"Congratulations goes out to the Royals. Phenomenal," Reid said. "You're talking about the world champions. That's an unbelievable feat. They're skipper, Ned Yost, the great job that he did in bringing that thing together, the Glass family for really putting the whole thing together, Dayton Moore for bringing in all those players. What a great tribute.

"They showed great grit. Those last couple of innings there, putting everything together, that was pretty impressive."

Reid said that although he won't attend the Royals parade Tuesday, he watch it on television.

"I'm excited," he said. "I'm fired up for them. I had a chance to get to know Ned [Yost] and and Jeremy Guthrie and a couple of the guys there. I'm proud of what they've done. What a great deal. I mean you just think about it, 'best in the world,' that's something special. That's really something special."

Thus far, a number of school districts in Kansas City have announced closures Tuesday to allow their students to attend the parade.

Reid said if the Chiefs were to win the Super Bowl, he'd hope for the same.

"I think we give everyone a day off and let's go baby."
