The Chiefs weren’t the only sports organization in Kansas City that was excited, obviously:

But maybe the whole MVP thing was all just a coincidence...?
George Brett AL MVP 1980.— Jason Trabue (@jasontrabue) February 3, 2019
Patrick Mahomes ll MVP 2018.
George Brett from California.
Patrick Mahomes ll from Texas.
George Brett’s final game was in Texas. Patrick Mahomes ll final game of the season was in Kansas City, MO.
Coincidence? I think not.
Eh, probably not...
I have worked 26 seasons in the @NFL and have been honored to work with many great ones including six @ProFootballHOF inductees but @PatrickMahomes5 is the first MVP! Congrats Patrick!— Rick Burkholder (@proatc) February 3, 2019
Regardless, bettors wasted no time when it came to capitalizing on the opportunity:
Well done to the TAB customer who has collected $33,500 after placing a $500 bet @ $67 on Patrick Mahomes to be crowned the 2018 #NFL’s Most Valuable Player a week before the regular season commenced! pic.twitter.com/yswavcBFaB— TAB (@tabcomau) February 3, 2019
And while it had been a conversation all season long, Mahomes (definitely) had the last laugh when it came to the Mahomes vs. Brees debate:
It was a landslide, too. Mahomes had 41 votes. Brees had nine. https://t.co/0gb3NEaPUJ— Rob Zerwekh (@zerwekh) February 3, 2019
Let’s just say...the future is bright:
Now that Kansas City has an MVP quarterback, we're going to be insufferable.— Kent Swanson (@kent_swanson) February 3, 2019
