If Patrick Mahomes keeps piling up TD passes, he’ll be swimming in ketchup

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes popped up on Thursday’s injury report, but it doesn’t appear to be anything that puts him at risk of missing the team’s much-anticipated Monday night matchup with the Rams.

Mahomes is listed with a foot injury and was a full participant in the session. The Chiefs will practice twice more before issuing injury designations for Monday, but it seems likely Mahomes will avoid any listing if he remains a full participant.

Assuming Mahomes does play, he’ll be trying to add to his total of 31 touchdown passes and padding that number will push him closer to winning free ketchup for life. In a recent feature by Seth Wickersham of ESPN, it was revealed that Mahomes is a ketchup fanatic who enjoys the condiment on steak.

Mahomes’ love of ketchup may extend to stadiums carrying the name of prominent purveyors as he threw six touchdowns in a win over the Steelers at Heinz Field earlier this season. Heinz doesn’t seem too preturbed, however. They offered Mahomes all the ketchup he can use if he throws 57 touchdowns this season.

“I’m not opposed to it and I get ketchup for life,” Mahomes said, via the Kansas City Star. “I’ll be sure to share it with some of the offensive linemen. … I don’t think it’s that weird, but I put it on my macaroni and cheese. People seem to think that’s a weird thing, some people think that’s disgusting, but it’s good to me.”

If Mahomes keeps throwing touchdowns and the Chiefs keep winning games, those in Kansas City who find it disgusting will likely be fine with Mahomes using ketchup anywhere he wants.

  1. “… I don’t think it’s that weird, but I put it on my macaroni and cheese. People seem to think that’s a weird thing, some people think that’s disgusting, but it’s good to me.”

    I make my mac-n-cheese with tomatoes in it (long time family recipe) for moisture and flavor … so no, ketchup isn’t that weird.

    No rules … if it tastes good to you, it’s fine.

  2. little kids put ketchup on everything, he’s just being nostalgic by doing that, because that truly is disgusting

  3. Let’s pump the breaks on KC. Way to many times a Rookie or 2nd year guy catches teams off guard for a season before defenses figure them out.

  4. He has money(plenty more soon) and dines in places that are 4 and 5 stars. I can not imagine the look on the Chefs or servers face when he ask for ketchup to put on their steak. These types of restaurants get mad when you ask for salt and pepper.

  5. Heinz made a similar offer to Joe DiMaggio during his consecutive games hitting streak in the Summer of 1941 and he failed to get a hit in the 57th game. I read that always bothered him because it cost him something like $10,000 which was absolutely huge in those days.

  6. Not a ketchup fan or a chiefs guy, and not a big fan of the pass crazy state of the league. But I’m starting to like this kid. That’s brilliant marketing too. No kidding, million dollar idea by Heinz.

  7. Heintz catsup has sold it’s soul and Steeler’s fan’s out. I’ll never buy it again. I’ll buy the store-brand Every-Day Essential’s instead.

  8. I wouldn’t put ketchup on steak. A good steak shouldn’t need any sauce. But, if you have a cheaper cut, I will sometimes use A1 or Heinz 57. If others choose to use ketchup in that spot, that is their choice and I won’t mock them for it.

  9. Chiefs fans. If you havent, check out the lengthy, well written and glowing article on Mahomes which is on ExPN.com. Yikes, he is so impressive and man, what a arm. Congrats. You just may have the next NFL legend. Major kudos to Andy for moving up to grab him.

  10. Ketchup on steak? Better be ONE HORRIBLE STEAK!
    Reminds me of a time, years ago. Family outing at a restaurant that is pretty famed for its prime rib. Grandmother orders hers – well done – and then slathers 57 sauce ALL over it. My Dad and I, well, we ordered some drinks….

  11. Lol. I thought I was the only one that had ketchup on mac and cheese! Ketchup on steak… maybe cube steak.

    Outside of week 1 and 2, the Kansas City Football Team has had a very weak schedule.
    ——————————
    Same could be said for the Chargers, Pats & Steelers.

    BTW the Jags & Bengals looked like playoff teams until the Chiefs broke them.

  13. I really hope this kid is as wholesome and fun loving as he seems. Even as a Steeler fan, I can not help but love him. It is very refreshing to see someone truly having fun in the NFL. Even though the league trys to take the fun of of it, some guys still manage to smile and enjoy it.

    Mahomes has only seen success, wondering if he will still be the same when the team sees defeat. Cam Newton wears his heart on his sleeve and is mocked and teased for it. Let see if Mahomes gets the same treatment.
