A number of casual sports fans previously mistook the Chiefs for a team that plays their games in Kansas City, Kansas — not Missouri, where Arrowhead Stadium is located — and the team’s quarterback made sure to correct them at the championship parade on Wednesday.
Patrick Mahomes and his teammates rolled through downtown Kansas City on buses, celebrating the 31-20 victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. It was the Chiefs’ first Super Bowl win in 50 years, so the players and fans celebrated accordingly.
Mahomes rocked a clever shirt to throw shade at those who believed the Chiefs were based out of Kansas, such as President Donald Trump, who was roasted for a (since-deleted) tweet congratulating the team after their big win. Trump stated that they represented the “Great State of Kansas,” even though they clearly do not.
The graphic on Mahomes’ shirt poked fun at Trump’s deleted tweet, with “The Great State of Kansas” being displayed on it inside a picture of the state of Missouri.
