Just how much Patrick Mahomes likes the Blues, or even hockey, is up for debate. Mahomes grew up in Texas and attended Texas Tech University, so conventional thinking would not lend one to think hockey was readily available to Mahomes, unless he happened to see the Blues playing the Dallas Stars.
However, that doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. Lots of people, whether they be celebrities or regular people, had never seen a puck, much less a game and then became fans because someone brought them.
Maybe that’s the case with Mahomes. Maybe he was just looking for something fun to do and came to a Blues game.
Whatever the case, both he and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs attended a Blues game back in the 2019 Stanley Cup Final.
Kelce might actually be more of a fan since he broke out an old-school Wayne Gretzky jersey that likely wasn’t just on sale somewhere.
Mahomes endeared himself to local fans. When spotted on the EVE board (don’t call it a jumbotron), Mahomes decides to chug an adult beverage most popular in St. Louis.
Mahomes and the Chiefs congratulated the Blues when they won the Cup. The Blues repaid the favor when the Chiefs won the Super Bowl and Ryan O’Reilly doubled-down on the support by wearing a Chiefs helmet during the All-Star Game skills competition in St. Louis.
