Commentator makes Taylor Swift reference during Travis Kelce match

During the game on Sunday, September 17, announcer Ian Eagle said, "Kelce finds a blank space for the score," when the player caught a pass in the end zone. This comes after a source told The Messenger, "Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out. She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago." Meanwhile, during the August 31 episode of the New Heights podcast with his brother Jason Kelce, the two siblings slyly mentioned Swift. 

It was when the two were talking about Kelce's mustache when his brother asked if he "found out what Taylor Swift thinks" of his facial hair. "Um, yeah we are not going to bring up Taylor Swift in this episode. But something tells me she is going to like it," he replied. Kelce previously mentioned Swift in another episode of the podcast in July earlier this year.

He attended her Eras Tour stop in Kansas City but was disappointed when he could not give the Cruel Summer hitmaker a friendship bracelet with his number. "I was disappointed that she doesn't talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings. She doesn't meet anybody — or at least she didn't want to meet me. So, I took it personal," he said. Reports of them hanging out came out after this.
