According to Yahoo Sports, he was basing his superstition on recent history: He was in attendance for the Chiefs’ home playoff losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2017, to the Tennessee Titans in 2018 and, worst of all, to the New England Patriots in overtime in last year’s AFC championship game.
When the Texans took a 14-0 lead and recovered a fumble by the Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill near his team’s end zone, the fan, Charles Penn, told people sitting near him that if the Texans went up by three touchdowns, he would leave.
Some people on Twitter who already knew of his losing streak at the stadium were also encouraging him to leave, he says.
“People were in my mentions. Like ‘Get ya a– out the stadium! Right now!’ They swear I’m the only jinx.”
