Two-time Super Bowl winner Patrick Mahomes is one of the stars of the Netflix series «Quarterback.» The show documents Mahomes’ recent football season, but also highlights his role as the proud father of his son.
When Mahomes refused to sign an autograph for a young fan at the American Century Championship, an awkward exchange ensued with another father on the golf course. Mahomes, who has appeared at the celebrity golf event several times, was apparently asked to stop signing so many autographs during one of his rounds.
«They told me I couldn’t do any more… I was signing things and they said I was taking too long,» Mahomes told a group of fans.

Despite the autograph signings seemingly disrupting the flow of the game, Mahomes seemed more than happy to keep signing as much as he could. «I thought we were having a good time,» the Kansas City Chiefs star said.

However, Mahomes’ situation did not stop a father from taking issue with his son not getting the coveted signature. «Mr. Mahomes, will you sign my jersey when you’re done?» the young fan was heard asking Mahomes.
The quarterback seemed to respond by saying, «I can’t sign for everyone… I can’t make everyone happy.» The father responded by saying, «Yes, you can… you can make one child in a hundred happy.»
Mahomes then responded with «I’ll make 99 sad.»
«Okay… one out of 99, at least it’s not zero percent,» the father said.
After the trade, Mahomes appeared to get back into the flow of his golf game.
Now that the golf event and awkward situation are over, Mahomes’ focus is likely to be trying to repeat as Super Bowl champion. The Chiefs have reached the title game three times in the last four seasons and are expected to be one of the AFC’s top teams again this coming season.
«Everybody’s motivated by that,» Mahomes said earlier this week when he reported to training camp.
«You should be motivated to do it again. When you have that show, when you get through the offseason that I’ve been through, you’ll want to do it again.»
The Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in February in a thrilling Super Bowl LVII. Three years ago, Kansas City dominated the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl LIV. They advanced to Super Bowl LV the following year, but suffered a 31-9 loss to tom brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Despite experiencing a significant amount of success in recent season, Mahomes said he plans to do everything he can to keep the team motivated.

«This time, I think I’m going to try to push and motivate the guys to keep trying to get better, even though we’re winning football games,» Mahomes said. «We are not satisfied with winning [but also] find ways to improve each week.
