Patrick Mahomes famously puts ketchup on everything. His preference for putting ketchup on steaks even led to an endorsement deal. So it shouldn’t come as a massive surprise that this ketchup eccentricity extends to Thanksgiving.
Mahomes did his weekly spot on KCSP 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City on Monday, and when he was asked around the 8-minute mark of the clip above about Thanksgiving turkey, he answered matter-of-factly:
“You gotta put ketchup on that, come on. Turkey and ham.”
He affirmed that he was not joking. He would not joke about such a serious matter: “Come on man, you know me better than that.”
Some people who hear this clip will inevitably act like Mahomes has committed war crimes by violating the sanctity of Thanksgiving dinner with improper condiments. Here’s my whole philosophy on life: If something makes you happy and doesn’t infringe on others’ pursuit of happiness, then go wild.
Mahomes has such a benign Zen about him, on and off the field, and we should all appreciate his transcendent talent while it’s in our lives.

Mahomes and I have the same ketchup obsession. I can’t wait to put it on my Turkey.
I appreciate Patrick Mahomes every day of my life. This is what happens when you grow up with Bono, Deberg, Krieg, GrBac, Gannon, Green, Huard, Croyle, Palko, Thigpen, Cassel and Smith.
As a former Chargers fan (followed Rivers there) I experienced a game at Arrowhead during the Cassel era. You guys have the best fans and best gameday experince in the NFL. Its the closest the NFL comes to capturing the magic of big time college football.
I am very happy that you guys landed Mahomes, you deserve him for sure. And I’m glad Philip no longer has to travel to Arrowhead every year with the Chargers, though I suspect Philip and Patrick are going to meet in January, sure hope so.
Oh, sorry. And Kyle Orton, Brady Quinn and a few heaves from the corpse of Joe Montana.
Amen, anyone who experiences distress over the condiment choices of others needs help.
That’s gross, but to each his own. As long as its not Hunt’s. That’s the Natural Light of ketchup.
