Days After Patrick Mahomes’ Massive Personal Loss, Favorite Teammate Travis Kelce Finds a Way to Cheer Up QB Friend

Patrick Mahomes just got a shiny new toy for his receiving corps

Despite having a spectacular end to the Super Bowl 2023 campaign, Patrick Mahomes and his family find themselves with heavy hearts. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback led them to their second Super Bowl ring in the last four years, and while the offseason was meant to be all fun and games, the family is going through a shocking loss. Earlier Mahomes’ mother, Randi Mahomes shared saddening news of one of their key family members being hospitalized.

Patrick Mahomes had to bid farewell to his grandmother, Debbie Bates after she continually struggled with health issues. The news of her death was broken by a close friend of the family, as the Mahomes household appears shaken. However, being a professional athlete, Mahomes is all too familiar with the next-play mindset and is trying hard to look ahead to the future. Fortunately for Mahomes, his teammate, Travis Kelce, found a way to make the Super Bowl MVP smile in these tough times.

Travis Kelce can be occasionally seen spiking the football at the end of a touchdown. Maybe the Pro Bowler carried the same attitude during his ceremonial first pitch of the Cleveland Guardians home opener on Friday. Kelce went on to throw one of the most questionable first pitches ever, replicating Carly Rae Jepsen’s first pitch to some degree. Repping his ‘I’m From Cleveland’ t-shirt, Kelce hurled the ball at Guardians pitcher Shane Bieber, who barely jumped in time to avoid injury.
