Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs have made it to the end game. Following Sunday night’s AFC Championship victory, the Chiefs are officially headed to the 2024 Super Bowl — and for Swifties, it’s the start of something new.
Taylor Swift became a mainstay at Chiefs games back in September, and Sunday night was no exception. After clinching their Super Bowl spot, the tight end and the pop star celebrated on the field with a kiss, much to the delight of people with parasocial relationships everywhere.
Of course, fans had a lot to say.
Fans were quick to point out how packed the next two weeks are for the couple. Swift is set to perform at the Grammys next Sunday, then she kicks off the next leg of her international Eras Tour dates in Tokyo, and the next day is Super Bowl Sunday. Her jam-packed schedule led to much speculation about whether she’d make it from Tokyo to Las Vegas in time to cheer on Kelce.
One Swiftie wrote on X / Twitter, “The fact that Taylor actually has plenty of time to make it to the Super Bowl because her final Tokyo Dome show on The Eras Tour is the previous night AND she’s on the correct side of the international date line to arrive AND be rested is the closest I’ve felt to believing in god.” Another said, “grammys > tokyo shows > superbowl is gonna be wild. my girl better be resting up in that private jet i’ll plant the trees for you queen.”
Others were less concerned about the logistics and more obsessed with what the couple represents.
Fans called the couple “the closest thing to American royalty” and their relationship “the plot of a rom com.” Many likened the pair to High School Musical high school sweethearts Troy and Gabriella. An X user wrote, “Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce having the Grammys, the Eras Tour Tokyo and the SuperBowl all in one week is literally the plot of high school music but if Gabriella had a jet.” Another posted the lyrics to Troy’s most iconic song, “Get’cha Head in the Game.”
High School Musical lyrics weren’t the only verses shared in celebration. Fans pulled from Swift’s extensive catalog to refashion lines to fit the moment.
Images of the pair celebrating the Chief’s win on the field have been steadily circulating on social media with Swift lyrics as captions. There’s “Flash forward and we’re taking on the world together” from Speak Now; “Our secret moments in a crowded room” from Reputation; and Midnights‘ “Do I really have to tell you how he brought me back to life,” to name a few.
Fearless hit “You Belong With Me” got its time in the spotlight as well as the images were reminiscent of the song’s football-centric music video. One user referred to Swift as a “manifestation queen” for going from “on bleachers” to the field.
And what does it mean that the Super Bowl date (Feb. 11) adds up to Swift’s lucky number, 13? Whatever it may be Swifties are…ready for it.
