Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes leaves trophy with fan after chugging beers at parade

NFL star Patrick Mahomes appeared to accidentally leave the Lombardi Trophy with a fan during the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade.

On Sunday night in Arizona, the Chiefs secured a dramatic 38-35 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in an all-time classic. Chiefs quarterback Mahomes threw for 182 yards and three touchdowns to lead Kansas City to a sensational win, which was secured by a late field goal from kicker Harrison Butker with just eight seconds remaining.

On Wednesday, the Chiefs enjoyed their Super Bowl victory parade with their buses frequently stopping on Grand Boulevard as players greeted fans who lined both sides of the street. Travis Kelce and Mahomes - who donned the WWE championship belt - signed autographs and gave out high-fives while fans threw beers and other alcohols into the players’ arms.

During the parade, Mahomes - beer in hand - greeted fans throughout the parade and he let a fan hold the Lombardi Trophy. However, the 27-year-old turned away and forgot to take it back, leaving the Super Bowl prize in the possession of the fan.

Of course, the Chiefs were able to retrieve the Lombardi Trophy before it went missing, but the scene was amusing. Mahomes’ hilarious error was all captured on video as the quarterback partied with Chiefs supporters at the celebration.

While on the bus, Mahomes danced and showed off his Super Bowl MVP award - even jokingly pretending to throw his individual accolade, which is a silver American football. He appeared to be somewhat drunk as cameras captured the two-time MVP downed a beer with quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy giving him a helping hand to stop the superstar from falling from the bus.

Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones also nearly fell off the top level of a double-decker bus, but was able to catch himself to avoid any injury or concerning scene. Meanwhile, the team had a guest of honour in Donna Kelce, the mother of Chiefs tight end Travis and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason - who became the first two brothers in NFL history to square off in a Super Bowl last week.

The bus parade ultimately finished at a rally at Union Station, the 109-year-old Beaux-Arts style facility in downtown Kansas City. At the event, Mahomes declared: “They said we were rebuilding. I’ll be honest with you, I don't know what rebuilding means. In our rebuilding year, we're world champs!”

At one point, Mahomes even poured a beer into Kelce's mouth from atop a double-decker bus as the All-Pro tight stood on the ground below. At the rally, the tight end added: “The haters were saying the Chiefs would never make the playoffs. Let's run this s*** back!”
