Of the fans celebrating Kansas City Chiefs defeating the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl on Sunday was the legendary father-son duo: Paul Rudd and his 17-year-old son Jack.
Of the notable characters in the crowd at State Farm Stadium in Arizona, the Hollywood star and his son were the more enthusiastic figures there to watch the big game. After the Chiefs proudly took home the championship title, the Rudds were caught in an interview and showcased a remarkably similar amount of excitement.
“I can’t believe it. That was such a great game… Wow. It all just feels so overwhelming. It’s incredible,” the father told FOX Sports. And, like father, like son. “I just want to thank Patrick Mahomes for existing … I’m so lucky that I’m alive to watch this. I cannot believe he is a real person. I don’t know how to explain it,” Jack said with an eager smile on his face.
