Patrick Mahomes Confirms He Wears The Same Pair Of Underwear For Every NFL Game: ‘As Long As I’m Winning Football Games, I’ll Keep The Superstition Going’
Patrick Mahomes has no plans to part ways with his lucky underwear!
During an appearance on ESPN’s ManningCast for Monday Night Football, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback confessed to the Manning brothers that he sports the same pair of red underwear for every game, which he first received back in 2017 as a gift from his high school sweetheart-turned-wife.
Patrick Mahomes said,
“First, my wife Brittany got them for me, so I’m not throwin’ y’all down, but I have to wear ’em, ya know.”
“At the same time, I threw ’em on that first season [and] we had a pretty good season that season.”
Patrick Mahomes made it clear that he only wears the underwear on game days — and, according to the professional athlete, they aren’t overly soiled or nasty. He said,
“I clean ’em. I wash ’em. Every once in a while, at least. I mean, if we’re on a hot streak, I can’t wash ’em, you know? I’ve gotta just keep it rolling.”
The Super Bowl 2023 champion added,
“As long as I’m winning football games, I’ll keep the superstition going.”
Chad Henne, the Chiefs’ former backup quarterback, disclosed Mahomes‘ superstitious ritual back in February during a podcast interview.
“This definitely has to be a superstition and a good-luck charm, for sure.”
