Patrick Mahomes won the NFL MVP award…
…and let’s just say we all knew it was coming.
It was written in the stars…
And who would’ve guessed…
The Chiefs weren’t the only sports organization in Kansas City that was excited, obviously:
Even Mahomes’ fellow teammates have congratulatory words to say to their #MVPat:
I’m honestly proud like almost too proud, feels like I won MVP lol #MVPat

But maybe the whole MVP thing was all just a coincidence…?
George Brett AL MVP 1980.
Patrick Mahomes ll MVP 2018.
George Brett from California.
Patrick Mahomes ll from Texas.
George Brett’s final game was in Texas. Patrick Mahomes ll final game of the season was in Kansas City, MO.
Coincidence? I think not.

Eh, probably not…
Regardless, bettors wasted no time when it came to capitalizing on the opportunity:
Well done to the TAB customer who has collected $33,500 after placing a $500 bet @ $67 on Patrick Mahomes to be crowned the 2018 #NFL’s Most Valuable Player a week before the regular season commenced! pic.twitter.com/yswavcBFaB

And while it had been a conversation all season long, Mahomes (definitely) had the last laugh when it came to the Mahomes vs. Brees debate:
Let’s just say…the future is bright:
Now that Kansas City has an MVP quarterback, we’re going to be insufferable.
