Hey, Louis Riddick: It’s Patrick Mahomes — not Pat.

Mahomes’ mother, Randi, made that abundantly clear Monday night when she griped at the ESPN “Monday Night Football” color commentator on Twitter as he called the Chiefs-Ravens game.

Mahomes’ father went by Pat during his professional baseball career, which included 11 seasons in MLB.

Apparently someone on the “MNF” production crew saw Randi Mahomes’ tweet and brought it to the attention of the booth. ESPN posted it to the broadcast in the second half and Riddick, in good humor, owned up to it while getting some light ribbing from Steve Levy and Brian Griese.

Let that be a lesson to all future broadcasters: Get Randi Mahomes’ son’s name right.
