Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce have quite the bromance going on, one so thick that Mahomes’ wife is even jealous of it.

But how did this bromance first come about? Mahomes told the story of how they first bonded in his rookie season when they showed up late to a walkthrough after a night out in Kansas City.
“It’s a bad look on me,” Mahomes said. “I get here at the beginning of the year, I’m still a rookie just going through the motions trying to figure out the best way to fit in. I think the first time that I thought, Travis and I are going to be connected throughout our entire career was, when we had the fourth preseason game we used to have a little off time. You played on Thursday and you had like a little weekend. Well, Coach Reid always gave you the walkthrough the day before the actual walkthrough. Me being a kid fresh out of college, I had a couple of buddies, a couple of rookies with me and we were like, ‘Let’s go out, it’s Saturday.’ So, we go out. Coach Reid had told us the next day at like 8:00 we were going to have a 15-minute walkthrough and be done. So I set like eight alarms on my phone. I have them all, I go out with the rookies. Of course, I get out there and I see old Travis Kelce out at the same spot that I’m at. Trav is like, ‘Come on, y’all come over here to my table. Let’s have a great time.’
“I had a great night, I get home, and make sure I have all my alarms set. I go to sleep and I wake up, not to an alarm. I wake up and I look at the TV and I see 8:15 on my TV screen. I didn’t put my phone in the charger and so my phone died. Rookie mistake.”
Well, it wasn’t just the fact that Kelce was out partying at the same spot as Mahomes and the rookies that bonded them together at this moment.
“They call me up to the office, I get like the max fine and all this other stuff,” Mahomes said. “I feel like an idiot. But I thought it was so weird that the first question they ask me was, ‘Were you with Travis?’ I was like, ‘No, not at all why would you even ask that?’ Long story short, Travis was also late. He got there like five minutes before me.”
The two claim they’ve never been late again since.
