Charles Penn wasn’t planning on going to the Kansas City Chiefs’ divisional-round playoff game against the Houston Texans this past Sunday.
Dating to the Chiefs’ collapse to the Indianapolis Colts in the 2013 wild-card game, the superfan didn’t have a great track record watching Chiefs games in public.
He didn’t want to tempt fate this time around.
But by the end of the week, his desire to see a Chiefs playoff win in person was too much.
He spent $258 on StubHub for a seat at Arrowhead Stadium. But he didn’t stay to see the Chiefs’ historic comeback. Hoping to reverse the course of his favorite team’s fortunes, Penn left when the Chiefs trailed by three scores in the first half.
Penn isn’t taking any chances this weekend. After the win, Mahomes was asked what he would say to Penn: “Watch the next game at home,” Mahomes said, drawing laughs.
Penn laughed when he saw Mahomes’ response and jokingly tweeted “just rude” at the QB. Mahomes responded, thanking him for leaving: “Appreciate you doing what was best for the Kingdom!”
