The liquor store at the Kansas City liquor store brought news of Patrick Mahomes’ record expansion of $ 503 million
REVEALED: The Kansas City liquor broke the news of Patrick Mahomes ‘record $ 503 million’ with the Chiefs for ESPN’s NFL insider
While most fans heard about the record setting of Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes, ESPN reporter Adam Schefter’s $ 503 million contract extension, it was actually a liquor store employee in Kansas City who first broke the news on Monday.
In a tweet since then deleted, Plaza Bierbrouwer Katie Camlin told the story of her boss, who sold six bottles of champagne to a group of Chiefs employees earlier today.
“A Chiefs front office worker came in and bought six bottles of Dom Perignon,” she wrote. “Said there is a big signing today. He said no [defensive tackle] Chris Jones, so I think it’s a Mahomes deal. ‘
To talk with USA Today, Camlin admitted that “it’s quite fun to have a scoop.”
Two hours later, or better said, Schefter confirmed the news that Mahomes signed a ten-year extension that could turn out to be the richest contract in sports history.
“Holy s ***,” Camlin wrote on Twitter. “I beat Schefter hahaha.”
Afraid her tweet was a violation of store policies, Camlin quickly removed it, but only after her fellow chefs heard the exciting news.
“I didn’t want to lose their business,” she told USA Today. “I was afraid they would be crazy. So I removed it. But of course screenshots are forever. ‘
And it’s those screenshots that made her a national celebrity on Monday. Twitter users even started tagging her in posts, demanding that the scoop be attributed to her. She told USA Today that she was even recognized by some customers who said, “I saw your tweet.”
She also spoke to the Chiefs front office worker to make sure that person didn’t get in trouble.
“I wanted to make sure he was okay,” she said. “We just wanted to make it clear that he didn’t spill any beans.
“I just gambled it!”
Mahomes agreed to a 10-year contract extension, potentially worth $ 503 million, including bonuses, according to his agency, Steinberg Sports. The deal includes a no-trade clause and opt-out clauses.
It is believed to be the richest contract in sports history, surpassing Los Angeles midfielder Mike Trout’s $ 426.5 million deal
However, Trout’s contract is guaranteed, while Mahomes would receive a $ 140 million payout if he were cut due to an injury, ESPN said.
