Donna Kelce brought cookies to Super Bowl opening night. The mother of Travis and Jason Kelce surprised her sons during an interview with NFL Network’s Michael Irvin with two batches of cookies. The Kelces are the first brothers to face each other in the Super Bowl, Travis as a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jason as a center for the Philadelphia Eagles. Donna and her husband, Ed, have mostly kept private over the years, but she’s become a minor celebrity as she crisscrosses the country to watch her boys, often in a jersey with Travis’ front stitched to Jason’s back. More than 150,000 fans signed a petition for the NFL to have her do the Super Bowl coin toss, but she said in a social media post that the NFL already had someone in place.

Ishbia agreed on Dec. 20 to the deal, one that put the total value of the Suns and Mercury at $4 billion.

For the first time in Super Bowl history, a pair of siblings will square off on the NFL’s biggest stage. Kelce helped the Chiefs return to their third championship game in four seasons on Sunday night when they beat the Bengals for the AFC title. Jason has the Eagles back for the second time in six years after their NFC title win over the 49ers.

The Cleveland Guardians have announced finalized plans for a $200 million renovation at Progressive Field. While the ballpark has aged well since opening in 1994, it is now the 11th oldest in Major League Baseball and in need of improvements. The team’s three-year renovation will focus on redoing the upper deck, the ballpark’s Terrace Club restaurant and remodeling the clubhouses, which haven’t been upgraded in 28 years. The renovation is coinciding with the team being back among the contenders in the American League after winning a division title last season while having baseball’s youngest team.
