Hmm . . . Where Have I Seen That Arm Before??”

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”


Where does Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes get his rocket right arm?

Minnesota Twins fans of a certain age (I qualify) know the answer: “from his old man.”

Mahomes senior was a journeyman major league pitcher who ultimately played for six teams over a decade, including 4 years for the Twins in the ’90’s.

I remember exactly two things about the Dad: 1) he was tall and whippet-thin (by contrast, his son is tall and a burly 235 lbs.); and 2) he had a wicked fastball.

I’d root for the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 55 against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but I can still remember Chiefs Coach Hank Stram taunting Vikings fans in their upset win in Super Bowl IV (I’m also an old Vikings fan).
