Out & About: What Have Your Favorite Athletes Been Up To?

Updated: Jun 14

With some leagues still in season and others entering or already in the offseason, many athletes are staying busy away from their respective sports. Every week, we’ll be recapping what your favorite athletes have been doing in their free time. So let’s check out this week’s edition!

Quinn & Luke Hughes

Prudential Center was home to the UFC on Saturday, June 1 and there were plenty of stars in the crowd, but the most recognizable to hockey fans across the country was Quinn and Luke Hughes. Two of the three well known hockey brothers were in New Jersey for the highly anticipated fight as their teams' respective seasons have come to an end. Both defensemen are up for notable NHL awards this season (Quinn for the Norris Memorial Trophy and Luke for the Calder Memorial Trophy), but before they head to Las Vegas at the end of the month for the NHL Awards, the brothers got to enjoy quite the UFC fight at The Rock.

Lando Norris

You’re used to seeing Lando Norris in a bright orange car going over 200 miles per hour around various race tracks across the world. But this past weekend, Norris took on a different look at the Champions League Final at Wembley Stadium in London, England. In partnership with PlayStation, Norris not only got to watch the match between Dortmund and Real Madrid and present the Player of the Game trophy, he got to suit up and practice with the athletes as well. Despite how it looked like Norris thoroughly enjoyed the experience, he doesn’t think he’ll be getting called up to play any soccer this summer.

PWHL Toronto

Sticking with the soccer theme, PWHL Toronto visited the Canadian Women’s National Team at their practice before they faced off against Mexico at BMO Field in Toronto on June 4. Sarah Nurse and Carly Jackson were just two of the PWHL players that attended the practice and got to meet the national team on the field afterwards. Of course, there was an exchange of jerseys between the two teams and a big group picture taken together. The support didn’t end there as the PWHL players got to watch the match live as well. Even though Toronto’s inaugural PWHL season came to an end earlier than the team would’ve liked, the players are making the most of the offseason.

Travis Kelce & the Kansas City Chiefs

For the second year in a row, the Kansas City Chiefs visited the White House in Washington D.C. to be honored for their Super Bowl win back in February. But the best moment of the trip last week came from none other than Travis Kelce who finally got to shine. During the team’s visit last year, Kelce jokingly went up to the podium when no one was looking as if he was giving a speech to the crowd before Patrick Mahomes pulled him away with an apology This time, Kelce got his specific moment to address “his fellow Americans” from the President himself and the video certainly made its rounds on social media.
