Turns out Patrick Mahomes hasn’t actually worn the same pair of nasty red drawers DURING nearly every NFL game of his career, just before kickoff … according to his mother, Randi Mahomes.
Randi recently joined the “Got It From My Momma” podcast … when the conversation turned to the infamous underwear Patrick recently revealed he wore for almost all of his career. Mom straightened the record.
“I asked Brittany, it’s not that he wears them in the game. He wears them from point A — like leaves the house, gets to the game. I don’t think he actually wears them in the game,” Randi explained.
Of course, Patrick made the admission to a stunned Peyton and Eli on the Manningcast earlier this season, saying he’d worn the present from his wife Brittany Mahomes since his great rookie season.
“I love a good superstition, but couldn’t you just do something like eat the same pregame meal? Did it have to be the red underwear?” Eli asked Patrick at the time.
Randi, like Manning, wasn’t a fan of the tradition when she first heard about it, saying, “I was at work, I went into my co-worker’s office like I can’t handle this.”
Mahomes and his Chiefs squad are slight underdogs against the 49ers … we’ll see if Patrick breaks tradition and wears them for the game on Super Sunday.
