It all started with a friendship bracelet (which are apparently a big thing with Swifties) that Kansas City’s NFL Hall of Fame bound tight end Travis Kelce fashioned — with his phone number incorporated- when he learned that his pop-music crush, four time Grammy Album of The Year winner Taylor Swift, was going to make a stop at the Chief’s Arrow Head stadium this past summer during her Eras tour.
Travis failed to secure a meeting with her after that show, but as any Defensive Back or Linebacker in the league can tell you, Travis is hard to bring down anywhere near the goal line. Taylor eventually got the bracelet and Travis got the girl… once he made his feelings about her known.
Taylor began showing out at Chief’s games in September, hanging out with his mom and dad and cheering on her BF and his team.
The NFL even leaned into the swirling sensation attending the new power couple, hyping Taylor’s attendance at the games and making an unabashed play for the perhaps heretofore underserved community of “Swifties”… which numbers more than 200 million strong on Instagram.
And last night, while at a tour stop in Buenos Aries, Taylor made the romance very public changing the lyrics of some of her songs – to acknowledge their relationship- and then rushing off the stage to jump into his arms and plant a big smooch on her lucky man.
“Forget Instagram official — Taylor Swift just made her romance onstage official.
The singer gave fans everything they wanted at her Buenos Aires concert on Saturday by acknowledging her relationship with Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce through the power of song. The football pro was in attendance when Swift concluded her three-hour show with a “Karma” lyric change directed at him.
“Karma is the guy on the Chiefs, coming straight home to me,” Swift sang with a laugh.
Fan-captured videos show the audience reacting with predictable cheers, with one lucky onlooker filming Kelce’s awestruck reaction as he stood in the VIP section with the pop star’s father, Scott Swift (an Eagles fan), who was inexplicably sporting a Chiefs lanyard as he applauded Kelce after catching the reference.”
Travis’ reaction to the lyric change was documented on Swiftie Twitter:

As President Joe might say this is a big f-ing deal folks.
Taylor Swift is a blue dyed in the wool liberal and has vowed to activate her legions of fans to get out the vote against the mango miscreant next year.
If she pulls this lever, her fans will more than counteract any support bled off by Manchin and Stein:

Now, if ya’ll will excuse me, I’m gonna go download Taylor’s latest 1989 (Taylor’s Version).
Being more of a classic rock, Motown and Blues fan, I may be a little late to her game.
But one good spin deserves another!
