Breaking the story of Patrick Mahomes’ historic contract extension was probably not part of the job description when an employee from a liquor store in Missouri applied for the job.
But when the time came, Katie Camlin did just that.
PATRICK MAHOMES, CHIEFS AGREE TO EXTEND 10 YEARS OF VALUE UP TO $ 503M TO: REPORT
Camlin, who works at Plaza Liquors in Kansas City, tweeted that a chief employee had come into her shop to buy a load of champagne for an obvious celebration.
“A Chiefs front office worker came in and bought six bottles of Dom Perignon. Said there’s a big signature today. He said it wasn’t Chris Jones, so my guess is a Mahomes deal, ”Camlin tweeted before finally deleting it, according to the Kansas City Star.
More than an hour later, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter had spread the news that Mahomes signed a 10-year contract extension with the Chiefs.

Camlin’s reaction: “Holy, I hit Schefter, hahaha.”
She later explained why she had tweeted about buying champagne at all.
“I tweeted it because I’m a Chiefs fan and was extremely excited,” Camlin told USA Today. “It’s fun to have a ball.”
Camlin said she was concerned that the team could be upset and stop doing liquor business after her tweet. So she deleted it.

“I didn’t want to lose your business,” she said. “I was afraid that they would go crazy. So I deleted it. But of course, screenshots are forever. “
Camlin also assured the Chiefs employee that he hadn’t disclosed any secrets and that according to USA Today, she had only guessed. A team spokesman declined to comment to the point of sale whether an employee wanted to pick up Dom Perignon.
According to his agency Steinberg Sports, Mahomes signed a 10-year $ 503 million extension.
