There’s an imposter on the loose, Chiefs Kingdom!

Kansas City Chiefs HC Andy Reid is a popular imitation among fans, with many adopting his signature look and style. You’ll spot many impersonators on gameday in the stands at Arrowhead Stadium, but it’s pretty rare to find one during the offseason, at least until now.

During the Kansas City Royals game against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, a dashing-looking gentleman was spotted in the stands. To the naked eye, it appears to be Reid. After closer inspection, fans will find that this is one of Reid’s many impersonators.

He goes by @AlmostAndyReid on social media and claims to be “Chiefs Super Fan and head coach doppelgänger.” He’s got a bit of work to do as far as mastering Reid’s voice and verbal ticks, but he certainly brings some of the coach’s signature energy.

A number of media outlets were fooled by the fake Reid, believing that this was actually the Chiefs’ coach taking some selfies in the stands at Kauffman Stadium.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes couldn’t help but laugh at the imposter.

Media outlets might not be the only ones fooled by the imposter. Chiefs rookie WR Cornell Powell seems to have fallen into the trap. Reid might have to give him a good ribbing about this one come training camp.

I expect Reid to have a good sense of humor about it all in the end, just as he has with his previous impersonators. He even let one start off his a training camp press conference for him back in 2016.
