The Chiefs have upset Greek Mythology fans with this tweet

Fans of Greek mythology are not happy with the Kansas City Chiefs over this tweet. The Chiefs are out painting the town red and putting up Chiefs flags around town as well as placing Travis Kelce’s jersey on this statue on the Plaza.

If you know your Greek mythology, you know that’s not Zeus. That’s Poseidon, or at least that’s what the dozens of replies to this tweet were quick to point out.

OK, OK, OK ... what the Chiefs were going for here is that Kelce’s nickname is ZEUS. I don’t think they were calling Poseidon Zeus (although they were brothers). Mythology much, Chiefs?

Poseidon was the god of the sea, which is convenient because the Chiefs will be swimming in a sea of Philip Rivers’ tears this weekend.
