Kansas City football fans suffer a moment of doubt following an anti-climactic blowout in the Super Bowl.
The MSM company line is that the young quarterback has plenty of time to return to the big game and compete at the top level.
Maybe . . .
Meanwhile, those of us who aren't willfully naive know that second chances are exceptionally rare in life and conventional wisdom is almost always wrong.
What we admire about Patrick Mahomes is that he didn't give up and sacrificed himself in vain for an unsuccessful effort . . . That's pretty much the circumstance of existence for most Americans. People try as hard as they can most of their lives and never REALLY succeed, ultimately ending their days in defeat. In the end, both superstars and scumbags alike are all rendered equal in death.
On the bright side, without question Patrick Mahomes has already earned "legend" status in Kansas City and could spend the rest of his career making an elite income doing cringe-y local commercials and helping to manufacture other garbage content.
But, that's not exactly a life for THE GOAT.
TKC reader meme perspective that offers a peek at underlying skepticism that offers snark in the face of so much ongoing local sports hype . . .
Fact is . . . Patrick Mahomes confronts an uphill battle and an unlikely return trip to championship glory in the near future despite fan hysteria and given Kansas City pro-sports history of extended famine with only occasional flashes of brilliance.
Inconvenient fact: Kansas City is not a "sports dynasty" town.
Proof: Let's not forget the very quick journey of the Royals from first to worst as local hotties no longer wear their baseball gear.
