Pat Mahomes Sr. is in awe of his son, just like the rest of us.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II stole the show in Super Bowl 57 and was named Super Bowl MVP for the second time in his career. Despite nursing an injured ankle, he led Kansas City to a second half comeback in an eventual 38-35 win over Philadelphia.
After the game, the superstar shared an emotional moment on the sideline with his father.
This moment with @PatrickMahomes and his dad after #SBLVII is incredible. 🥲

The elder Mahomes was a successful athlete in his own right, spending more than a decade as an MLB pitcher for the Twins, Red Sox, Mets, Rangers, Cubs and Pirates. But his achievements as an athlete have already been eclipsed by his 27-year-old son, who is already well on his way to a legendary career in the NFL.
Mahomes Sr. also made waves during Kansas City’s playoff run this year for his postgame trash talk. After the Chiefs’ win against the Bengals in the AFC Championship, he declared he was “smoking on that Joe Burrow” as he puffed on a cigar.

“My baby boy did what he always do,” Patrick Sr. said after the Bengals game. “He gonna show up and show out, and I’m just glad he did it.”

Super Bowl 57 was a family affair for more reasons than one. For the first time in history, two brothers faced off in the NFL’s biggest game as Travis and Jason Kelce went head-to-head. Their mom, Donna, was also in the stands wearing a unique split jersey to support both of her sons.
Travis caught a touchdown and ultimately earned the bragging rights as his Chiefs emerged victorious.
“There’s nothing you can really say to a loved one in any situation like that,” Travis told reporters while wiping away tears. “There’s nothing I could really say to him other than I love him and he played a hell of a year, a hell of a season.”
