​Before ​Patrick Mahomes plays under the spotlight tonight, he had to show some love to his old man first. The Kansas City Chiefs QB rocked his dad's No. 23 New York Mets jersey, a team that the elder Mahomes pitched for from 1999 to 2000, going 8-0 before heading to the playoffs. 

​​Talk about respect. 

Like any former baseball player, Pat Mahomes is very superstitious and rocks the same outfit to any Chiefs' games that he attends. Father Mahomes wears his son's ​Chiefs jersey, white shorts and Adidas shoes. 

Patrick Mahomes was drafted by the 37th round by the Detroit Tigers in 2014, but ultimately decided that football was his path in life. So far, it was the right choice.
