Chiefs shortstop Patrick Mahomes is having a phenomenal season, and with half of the campaign completed, the gunslinger has been receiving requests for collaborations. The most recent was from fellow favorite Travis Kelce; however, he passed on the chance to coach Andy Reid in spectacular fashion.
Travis Kelce and his brother Jason Kelce host a popular podcast, ‘New Heights.’ In the recent episode, the duo sought suggestions from fans for a new guest. Viewers instantly clogged the chat section with Patrick Mahomes chants.
Before the Kelce brothers even thought to plan anything, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid’s name flashed across the screen. As Kelce tweeted asking for suggestions on Twitter, Mahomes stepped in and floated a similar idea to invite Andy Reid instead.
“Oh… That would be a sweep man. He’s a hard**. He’s hard, so I can’t, I don’t know. It’s what I’m like, what am I just asking?” Travis Kelce said on the show in an awkward, nervous tone.
As soon as Jason Kelce noticed his brother’s shyness, he asked if Mahomes would give him a chance and ask Reid for an episode. He apparently recoiled and expressed his fear of doing such a thing.
“I’m not going to lie, I’m terrified too,” Muhammad answered. The quarterback had been through a similar situation during his filming for the State Farm commercial.
“I had State Farm ask him first because I was scared.” Mahomes recalled before mentioning the soft heart that Reid is. “Once he was asked, he came to me and asked if I wanted him to do it. Obviously, I did it because I know how much personality she has. … People don’t see it,” added.
