If I could name a Backstreet Boys song, I’d probably make a reference to it.

Alas, I’m not a fan. However, a member of the Backstreet Boys visited the Chiefs on Sunday and was in the locker room with quarterback Alex Smith and owner Clark Hunt. Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys shared this photo on Twitter (he’s second from left):

If you’re wondering why the guy on the right looks familiar, it’s because he “Captain Awesome” on the TV show “Chuck.” His name is Ryan McPartlin.

Not sure if he’s a Chiefs fan, but Richardson is. He hails from Kentucky but is married to Kristin Willits, a Shawnee Mission Northwest graduate.

That would explain why Richardson is a Chiefs fans. He seemed happy to meet running back Kareem Hunt as well:

Richardson got the chance to throw a ball on the field, too:
