For those of us going a bit insane staying inside due to measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus, Patrick Mahomes is here to help.

If you’re anything like me, you have no idea what day it is or how long it’s been since you’ve assumed anything close to a “normal” schedule. Quarantine has us going a little crazy lately. The kids are ruling the roost. Schedules are nowhere to be found. We’re eating whatever was left on the grocery store shelves by the cast of The Walking Dead. We measure screen time in days.

It’s in moments like these that you need some help from someone on the outside, a person to reach in and offer a boost in some way. This time, that man—that wonderful man—is Patrick Mahomes.

We’re used to the Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback being the player who thrills us each and every game day when watching our favorite team, but even when football is not happening, Mahomes knows we still need some new footage. Enter the following.

Mahomes recently released a workout video via his own Instagram account and it was the medicine our family needed. The highlights made me pump my fist and cheer. The workout clips made me want to get up and get moving myself. The music had me amped for more football. By the end, I’d showered and shaved, cooked stir fry for the family, went on a 5-mile run, and re-painted the staircase.

In these COVID covered days, Patrick Mahomes is the man we need. Even without shining his initials brightly into the night sky, like a beacon summoning his presence, the Chiefs QB was still aware we could use a boost. And just like always, he delivered.
