The Cincinnati Bengals are in search of a second consecutive journey to the Tremendous Bowl this weekend, and of their approach lies a well-recognized foe. For the final 5 years, the highway to the Tremendous Bowl has run by way of the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs. Happily for the Bengals, they’ve bought expertise beating the Chiefs. They even beat the Chiefs in final yr’s AFC Championship Sport. The truth is, quarterback Joe Burrow has by no means misplaced to the Chiefs — he’s 3-0 towards Patrick Mahomes and co. — and he doesn’t plan on beginning this weekend.

Town of Cincinnati is buzzing with confidence, and that extends to its highest workplace. On Thursday, Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval launched this video urging Joe Burrow to take a paternity check to determine whether or not or not he’s the truth is Patrick Mahomes’ father.

Cringey, I do know, however the thought was there. Branching off from “Who Dey” to “Who’s Your Daddy?” is sensible. That’s simply evolving the mantra. Nonetheless, it was nothing greater than a innocent joke that shouldn’t carry any monumental penalties, proper?

Uh oh.

Nobody wants to hear from Jackson or Brittany Mahomes

Brittany Mahomes, Patrick’s beloved, and the bane of every Chiefs fan’s existence, returned from a year-long slumber just to poke her head out right before the team’s biggest game of the season. This can only mean despair for the people of Kansas City. Any time Brittany Mahomes makes headlines, bad things happen. She and brother-in-law Jackson Mahomes had been each outstanding figures on social media in the course of the Chiefs’ postseason run final season, and what occurred, hm? They misplaced! This yr, with each Brittany and Jackson taking a again seat, Mahomes re-asserted himself as the most effective quarterback within the league — he’s in all probability going to win the MVP award — and, after falling to the dreaded 2-seed within the AFC in 2021, the group earned their convention’s prime seed in 2022. Coincidence? I feel NOT!

Whether or not it’s pouring champagne throughout chilly followers following an enormous win, or complaining that referees by no means “favor” the Chiefs, any Brittany Mahomes sighting means dangerous information for the Chiefs each in status and on the sector.

Maybe this was Mayor Pureval’s plan all alongside, to make a lighthearted and cringey jab at Patrick Mahomes simply to make his spouse flip up and destroy any hope the Chiefs had of profitable. I do know his identify is Pureval, however that plan is PURE-genius…see what I did there? I’m so intelligent. I’m certain nobody has ever made an analogous joke of their lifetime.

That stated, I don’t disagree with all of Mrs. Mahomes’ sentiments. Was it embarrassing? Sure. I imply, the Mayor even issued an apology to town of Cincinnati, tweeting “Bengals nation, Lol. I hear you. My aggressive juices and love for cincy [sic] bought the most effective of me. My dangerous. Staying hungry and humble. See you Sunday. Who Dey child!”

Was it weak although? In no way. It’s regular for individuals to acknowledge a dominance hierarchy when one is introduced, and the Bengals have introduced such a posh to the Chiefs ever since Burrow took over because the group’s beginning quarterback. It’s not weak to handle a development. Moderately, it will be weak to bend to a group that you simply’ve had no drawback taking down. So, on that finish, Mayor Pureval has the higher hand.

With regard to soccer although, I’ve to present the sting to Cincinnati as properly. As I stated, the return of Brittany Mahomes can solely imply one factor: Misfortune for the whole thing of Kansas Metropolis. I wouldn’t be shocked anymore if the clock strikes zero at Arrowhead and town of Cincinnati will be heard within the stands.
