Patrick Mahomes found a clever way to avoid a sponsor no-no and still cheer on Texas Tech

Texas Tech is in the Final Four national championship game, and it’s big deal for just about everyone attending or that has attended Texas Tech.

That includes Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and former Red Raider Patrick Mahomes, who was in Minnesota to personally cheer on his alma mater.

Of course, Mahomes probably wanted to wear Texas Tech gear during the game, and that presented a small problem. Texas Tech is an Under Armour school, but Mahomes has an endorsement deal with rival Adidas.

Mahomes had a pretty simple solution for that.

Some masking tape, a marker and no stern calls from his agent about the importance of his endorsement deal. Seems like a solid combination for Mahomes.

We’ll let you know if Mahomes also whips out a ketchup bottle with “Hunt’s” written on it in a similar fashion.

Like Texas Tech’s Final Four game, Mahomes was joined at the game by teammate Travis Kelce, who had no rooting interest in the game as a Cincinnati alum. Judging by the drink in hand, he’s just there to support his friend and have a good time.
