“I invited him to dinner. A delicious chicken dinner. He’s never called.”

Winkler joked that he “told him we were going to have chicken with a great reduction sauce. It’s still on the dining room table.”

In 2022 sideline interaction at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, Winkler and Mahomes were captured talking. 

“I’m gonna take you up on that dinner though. Offseason I’m gonna make it happen,” Mahomes was heard telling Winkler. 

“There’s always a seat at my table for you,” Winkler told him. 

While Winkler joked about it, he noted still being in awe of Mahomes’ demeanor when they met.

“He was so approachable, he was so warm,” Winkler told FOX 4. “He talked to me like we were in a living room somewhere. Not like he was about to go and play this ferocious game of football.”

In the moment, Winkler said he “met one of my heroes” in reference to Mahomes. 

“I think that he was so genuine. I think he is exactly the same in life as lives with the intensity on the field. That’s what I think,” Winkler said in the moment. 

Winkler also made an appearance on “The Rich Eisen Show,” where he wore the same No. 15 Chiefs jersey Mahomes ha given him.
