The Kansas City Chiefs sent a gift to local news breaker Katie Camlin after she broke one of the biggest stories of the year.
A few months back, when Patrick Mahomes signed his record-breaking contract extension with the Chiefs, it wasn’t Adam Schefter or Ian Rapoport or Terez Paylor who broke the news. Instead, it was Plaza Liquor employee Katie Camlin, who pointed out that a Chiefs employee had come into the store and purchased a large amount of Dom Pérignon. She took to Twitter to share her findings.
Sure enough, the Mahomes deal would be announced shortly after. Camlin had scooped all the big-time reporters and the Chiefs were really cool about all of it. Later, they even made a little fun of the situation in a video that included Camlin when Chris Jones signed a long-term deal with the team.
Once the dust settled, Brett Veach did something really classy. He sent a bottle of Dom Pérignon to Camlin, but this one was a bit special.

I let @AdamSchefter break the news on this one, but here it is! The @Chiefs and Brett Veach are way too generous, and gave me this bottle signed by @PatrickMahomes and @StoneColdJones . I cried. I will treasure this absolutely forever pic.twitter.com/RCOTRoWo2e
