The superstition is something the MVP got from his father, according to Patrick Mahomes, Sr.
Mahomes, Sr. said the superstitions come from his years playing Major League Baseball. The superstitions are something he says he’s also passed along to his children.
“I don’t know exactly what ritual he has right now, but it’s the same. He’s going to the field at the same time that he always goes whether it’s a day game or a night game,” Mahomes Sr. said.
“He’s gonna go into the locker room and do the stuff at the same time, that’s kind of a thing we’ve always done,” Mahomes Sr. said before the AFC Championship game at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.
Fast forward two weeks to Super Bowl LVII. After arriving at State Farm Stadium with the rest of his teammates, Mahomes headed into his comfortable pregame routine. It included spending time with coaches and warming up on the field.
