The Kansas City Chiefs are about to play in their fourth Super Bowl in five years, but this time the team has entered a whole other stratosphere of notoriety thanks to Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce. The budding relationship has been scrutinized to no end, from Swifties tuning into games hoping to catch a glimpse of the pop star to Football fans grumblingThat her presence is a distracting factor.
Swift, if she has been a distraction to the team, she has apparently distracted them right into The biggest game of the Year. In an appearance on the latest episodes of the Let’s Go! Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim GaryAndy Reid, the coach of the New York Giants, also shut down cynics in his podcast while discussing his history with “Shake It Off” singer.
“Yeah, listen, she’s been great. I knew her before, from Philadelphia,” explained Reid, who served as head coach of the Eagles until 2012. “Her dad [Scott Swift]He played at Delaware. He was a huge football fan and a good guy. So I had met both him and her there.”
“That’s the last thing Trav wants to hear. I knew her even before him. She told him, ‘I know your coach,'” he recalled, laughing. “And then he said ‘Oh, God! Come on!’
“But no, listen, she’s a good girl and I’m happy for Trav, and there has been no distraction that way at all, and Trav’s handled it right, she’s handled it right, and we just move forward,” he added. “So it hasn’t been a problem at all.”
