Before ?Patrick Mahomes plays under the spotlight tonight, he had to show some love to his old man first. The Kansas City Chiefs QB rocked his dad’s No. 23 New York Mets jersey, a team that the elder Mahomes pitched for from 1999 to 2000, going 8-0 before heading to the playoffs.

Talk about respect.
Like any former baseball player, Pat Mahomes is very superstitious and rocks the same outfit to any Chiefs’ games that he attends. Father Mahomes wears his son’s ?Chiefs jersey, white shorts and Adidas shoes.
It wasn't matter of if @patrickmahomes5 was going to play pro football.
