The Kansas City Chiefs met the Commander in Chief at the White House on Monday while pausing to remember the matriarch of the organization Norma Hunt.
Monday’s trip was planned months ago to celebrate the Chiefs Super Bowl LVII win over the Philadelphia Eagles in February.
Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt did not make the trip to the White House after announcing his mother, Norma Hunt, died Sunday at the age of 85.
The wife of team founder Lamar Hunt, Norma is the only woman to have attended all 57 Super Bowls, the event her husband helped create.
At Monday’s ceremony, Biden held a moment of silence to honor Norma Hunt.
“We also are missing one of the most loyal Chiefs fans there ever was, Norma Hunt, who passed away this weekend. I’d like to suggest a moment of silence,” Biden said.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and Team President Mark Donovan echoed the president’s thoughts along with Mahomes.
“The Hunt family, we’re thinking about you. Doggone, we’re thinking about you,” Reid said.
“Norma was a joyful soul,” Donovan said. “She loved her Chiefs. She was really proud of this team and really proud that they had the opportunity to be here today.”
