MIAMI, Florida (AP) – Kansas City waited 50 years to get back to a Super Bowl and now their chance is here.
It took workers at Miami International Airport about three attempts to get one of the rolling staircases lined up properly to the Chiefs’ plane that they would use to exit.
A handful of local politicians and officials were at the airport to greet the teams, as loud hip-hop music blared through the maintenance hangar that was being used for the arrivals.
Super Bowl 54 is next Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
A handful of volunteers greeted players, coaches and staff as they made their way down the stairs. Everyone was handed a floral baseball cap, and many players held their phones out to shoot video of the moment they arrived at the Super Bowl.
Even the flight attendants on the Chiefs’ flight were celebrating the moment as they gathered at the top of the stairs for a group photo once their passengers deplaned, and then a few of them pulled out their phones for some pictures of players as well.
