Correction: screaming!

Jason's speech was extremely lengthy, but fans are convinced he managed to slip a Taylor Swift reference into the mix when he said “It’s only too poetic I found my career being fulfilled in the city of brotherly love, I knew that relationship all too well." Oh, and at another point he used the phrase "wildest dreams," so yes, everyone is reading into things.

Anyway, the sweetest part of Jason's speech was 1,000,000 percent what he said about meeting his wife Kylie Kelce and experiencing love at first sight. “I still remember the moment she walked through the door,” he said while holding back tears. “The first instance is burned in my retina. It was like she glided through the opening, an aura around her.” He added, "Then she started talking and I thought, man, is this what love feels like? She was beautiful, and smart, serious, yet playful. I knew it right away. I think it’s no coincidence I enjoyed my best years of my career with Kylie by my side.”

If you're wondering how Kylie reacted to hearing Jason say all that about her, she was crying in the audience much like you will be crying when you watch this video:
