Patrick Mahomes’ spouse, Kansas Metropolis mayor reply after Cincinnati mayor hits unprecedented stage of cringe
It is simply not a Cincinnati Bengals playoff sport with out an inordinate quantity of trash discuss beforehand, however then Cincinnati mayor Aftab Pureval determined to take issues a step additional forward of Sunday’s AFC championship sport.
Two days earlier than the Bengals are scheduled to take the sector in opposition to the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs, Pureval posted a video wherein he issued an official proclamation requesting Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow take a paternity take a look at to verify if he’s Patrick Mahomes’ father.
Sure, for real.
The background right here is that the Bengals have a 3-0 file Mahomes and the Chiefs since they drafted Burrow, which has made the Bengals and their followers, already flying excessive from their 27-10 win over the Buffalo Payments final weekend, fairly assured about this matchup.
The Bengals themselves have made it fairly clear they’re keen to get in on this motion, deeming Arrowhead Stadium “Burrowhead.” As a result of Burrow has a 1-0 file there, you see.
After all, it’s not like the Bengals have dominated Mahomes across the three games involving Burrow (which does not embody that point Mahomes beat them 45-10 earlier than they drafted Burrow, after all), and it is positively not like Burrow is forward within the one metric that may undoubtedly be most used to measure their careers when all is claimed and carried out, Tremendous Bowl rings.
However you’ll be able to’t let that cease goobers like Pureval from getting their photographs in now, particularly when it results in Kansas Metropolis partisans getting this mad. That included each Kansas Metropolis mayor Quinton Lucas and Mahomes’ spouse Brittany Mahomes, who responded on Twitter.
You actually having to understand Lucas saying he will not reply, then being mad sufficient to convey up each the Bengals’ lack of rings and their former mayor.
There was additionally “Fashionable Household” actor Eric Stonestreet, a widely known Chiefs fan, taking the excessive street whereas concurrently taking down Pureval.
It goes with out saying the Bengals are signing themselves up for a web based beating in the event that they lose on Sunday, however they’re in all probability nicely conscious of that. With an AFC North title and wins over the Baltimore Ravens (sans Lamar Jackson) and Payments, it is at the very least been a enjoyable journey.
However it needs to be enjoyable in the event that they win. Which, nicely, is normally true if a group reaches the Tremendous Bowl in back-to-back years.
