Andy Reid’s fogged-up face shield wins meme game as NFL returns

Everyone who’s ever worn eyeglasses with a face mask can relate to the Kansas City Chiefs coach.

The National Football League returned Thursday night as the Kansas City Chiefs took on the Houston Texans for perhaps the NFL’s oddest season opener ever. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, fan attendance at Arrowhead Stadium was limited to 22 percent of stadium capacity, and fans were supposed to wear masks when not eating and drinking. Coaches and other team personnel near the players’ bench were also supposed to don masks, ESPN reported.

But leave it to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid to go above and beyond. Reid wore a Chiefs hat with an attached face shield, and the shield fogged up noticeably. Any eyeglasses wearer who’s been trying to get used to a face mask in these strange times can relate, but Reid’s fuzzy look was displayed for hours on national TV.

Social media quickly filled up with commentary on Reid’s steamy shield. Some attacked Reid for wearing the shield at all. But others found the goofy look a rare bright spot in year without many of those.

“Andy Reid should have stopped by Autozone and got some RainX,” said one Twitter user. Tweeted another, “Andy Reid’s mask has been the best part of COVID-19.”
