It’s always fun when old friends get together to rehash the glory days, especially when those guys are Jason Kelce and Chris Long. The two fan-favorite Super Bowl champions linked up last week on the “Green Light” podcast and went head-to-head in a malt liquor blind taste test.
Wait, what? Yes, Kelce and Long busted open the boozy 40-ouncers in a no-holds-barred competition to see who could identify some iconic beer brands like Olde English 800, Colt 45, Icehouse, Hurricane, Bud Ice, Steel Reserve “211” — plus a few wild-card brews. The contest was as awesome as it sounds — eight cups of malt liquor, divided by rounds — dwarfed only by the open and honest dialogue from the former Eagles teammates who clearly cherished their time together in Philly.
Perhaps the most telling moment came toward the end when Long was quizzing Kelce in a “hurricane round” of random questions. One of the questions to Kelce was: “What are you currently worried about?” To which the All-Pro center replied: “Retirement.”

Kelce didn’t elaborate on it, but Long surely tried to sell him on retirement. He joked that the only thing he had to worry about tomorrow was the hangover from drinking too many 40-ouncers, while Kelce would wake up to “existential crises” stemming from football.
Long: I’m just thinking about how this 40 is going to make me feel, which is a lens into my life. Which is much simpler than yours and you should retire at some point soon because it’s amazing. When you get here, it’s awesome! This 40, that’s all I’m worried about. You? Existential crises, contracts, football …
Kelce: What’s going to happen …
Long: I’m just thinking about this 40, bro.
Kelce: That’s nice.
Who won the malt liquor challenge? It went to Long who correctly identified a Mickey’s 40 in the final frame. However, the two friends stayed on the podcast and drank another full beer while swapping their favorite Nick Foles stories, which bars they’ve been banned from, and that time Kelce almost died after being tied to a boat.
