I don't know how familiar most people here are with American football, but I gotta post this . . .

Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs is the NFL's newest darling superstar, and rightfully so. The Chiefs aren't even my team but I have to admit Mahomes is fascinating to watch. The man truly has an amazing arm. It's crazy the kind of passes he can throw. I could go on gushing, but anyway . . . He hurt his ankle in the first game of the season, which was really scary, but the Chiefs still won their first 4 games but lost the next two in a row.

So here's the funny part, a church in Kansas City decided to hold a prayer service to pray for him and his team:
Desperately seeking a win following consecutive losses, a Kansas church is hoping the power of prayer will get Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs back on track.

Per Heidi Schmidt of Fox 4 Kansas City, Asbury United Methodist Church in Prairie Village plans to pray for Mahomes' ankle to heal as part of its Sunday services.

"With the last two games, we kind of thought that they may need some type of help," Dave Burton, facilities director at the church, said. "We knew that his ankle was injured so we decided to possibly have a healing service to help him heal that ankle quicker."

Well, the Chiefs actually played their Week 7 game on Thursday night (last night) and Mahomes dislocated his knee during the first quarter and may be out for at least three weeks. (That part's not funny, actually, I don't want to see him injured.) But now I wish I could see the looks on the church members' faces! I'm picturing them running down the church aisle shouting "Stop praying, everyone! STOP! PRAYING!!!" :rofl:
