Travis Kelce’s Quotes About Taylor Swift Going To The Chiefs Game Are Honestly Sweet

The world hasn’t been able to recover since Taylor Swift attended the Kansas City Chiefs game on Sept. 24 to support Travis Kelce, and TBH, I don’t blame anyone. For the past couple of weeks, these two have been the topic of discussion across all social media platforms, and their meetup only fueled the romance rumors. Now, fans are finally hearing from the source. On Sept. 27, Kelce addressed the game night with Swift on his podcast New Heights with his brother, Philadelphia Eagles corner Jason Kelce, and gave Swifties all his thoughts. Kelce’s quotes about Swift going to the Chiefs game are seriously sweet.

If you’re thinking that this romance kind of appeared through thin air, know there is a bit of history between the two dating back to July. Over the summer, Kelce made his way to Swift’s Eras Tour concert at Arrowhead Stadium in the hopes of meeting the singer and giving her a bracelet with his phone number on it. Although he didn’t get the chance, on an episode of the New Heights show, he jokingly explained why meeting her was so important. “I wanted to give Taylor a friendship bracelet with my number on it … She didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personally.”

Even though he wasn’t able to meet Swift then, Kelce still had hopes of meeting her and even extended an invitation to Swift to attend a Kansas City Chiefs game the week of Sept. 18. Fast forward just days later and Swift could be seen cheering Kelce on (alongside his mom, no less) as he scored a touchdown in the Sept. 24 game against the Chicago Bears. Once the game was over, the pair was spotted leaving the stadium together. 

After not directly speaking about the rumored romance for a while, Kelce opened up on the Sept. 27 podcast episode with some fun details about the game night, stating he “sure as hell enjoyed it.” Kelce expressed gratitude to Swift for her showing up and cheering him on. “Shout out to Taylor for pulling up, that was pretty ballsy,” he said. “Everyone in the suite had nothing but great things to say about her.”

Kelce also said watching Swift enjoy the game was a highlight. “To see the slow-motion chest bumps, to see the high-fives with mom, and to see the Chiefs kingdom was all excited that she was there, that sh*t was absolutely hysterical,” he said. “It was definitely a game I’ll remember. That’s for damn sure. And then we just slid off in the getaway car at the end.”

Kelce also shared that moving forward, he wanted to respect both his and Swift’s lives by keeping the conversation about football. “I know I brought all this attention to me. I did the whole friendship bracelet thing and told everybody how butt-hurt I was that I didn’t get to meet Taylor. What’s real is that it’s my personal life, and I want to respect both our lives,” he said. “I’m enjoying life, and I sure as hell enjoyed this weekend, so everything moving forward, I think me talking about sports … will have to be where I keep it.”

So there you have it. At the moment, Swift and Kelce seem to be having fun and hanging out with no pressure. Swifties (and the NFL, TBH) can only hope they get a glimpse of the pop star at another Chiefs game in the near future.
