The Kansas City Chiefs must be feeling pretty good right now.
After a liquor store manager manages to break news of a big contract signing when a team employee comes in to buy bottles of champagne, some teams might be disciplining their employee — or complaining to the store for the actions of their employee.
Not the Chiefs.
On Thursday, they released a video featuring Katie Camlin, the Chiefs fan who manages Plaza Liquor, which is located west of Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza. It was Camlin who took to Twitter a week ago Monday, revealing that the Patrick Mahomes signing was imminent after Chiefs employee Kunal Tanna had purchased six bottle of bubbly.

Camlin immediately became famous among Chiefs fans around the world — and her fame will likely increase with this video.
Last week, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter — the reporter who first broke the Mahomes story through traditional means — was gracious in giving Camlin credit for breaking the story. The reactions to the Thursday’s new video are priceless.
Come on, Katie. Leave some scoops (and champagne) for the rest of us https://t.co/5AR2CCLHA3— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 16, 2020

The Chiefs employee collecting the champagne from @katie_cammm is Kunal Tanna, the support liaison in the player engagement department. Patrick Mahomes’ nickname for Kunal is K-Dog.https://t.co/qXWiSRmm4R https://t.co/c90Wd3VWfx— Nate Taylor (@ByNateTaylor) July 16, 2020
THIS is how Twitter should be done.— Conrad McGorkin (@ConradMcGorkin) July 16, 2020
Embracing the fans. They build the brand.
And Schefter was back, too.
Insider @katie_cammm on it again...: https://t.co/POfadSHYl2— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 16, 2020
It may be a while before the Chiefs have any more big contract signings to break. But you can bet Katie will always be there... with her phone close at hand.
