Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce

Taylor Swift Went to Travis Kelce’s Football Game, and We’re Just Here for the Memes

Taylor Swift wields quite a bit of power. Recently, Swift influenced 35,000 people to register to vote and has given a substantial economic boost to every city her Eras tour touches down in. So it’s not surprising that she succeeded in breaking the internet by attending a football game on September 24. As someone who doesn’t watch football, I wasn’t even aware that a game was happening until I saw the headlines about Swift being in attendance. Suddenly, the whole nation was attuned to Sunday night football because Swift made an appearance.

If you’re wondering why this is so significant, it’s because Travis Kelce was playing for the Kansas City Chiefs at this particular game. Rumors have been swirling on the internet about Swift and Kelce potentially dating. It’s rare for celebrities to respond to rumors, as most prefer to keep their dating life private. That’s why fans were quite excited when Kelce acknowledged the rumors and revealed that he had actually already made the first move. He invited Swift to his team’s home venue to watch him play at Arrowhead, where he’d seen her perform before. Kelce left the ball in Swift’s court, and the internet has been collectively holding its breath, waiting to see what happens next.

Fortunately, they didn’t have to wait too long, as Swift made her way to Arrowhead to watch Kelce play for the Chiefs last night. Not only that, but she attended the game with his mother. Consider the internet officially broken. Additionally, the Chiefs beat the Bears by a landslide, and, more importantly, Swift and Kelce were spotted leaving Arrowhead together. It’s almost just too perfect, which is why it sparked a plethora of memes.

Bring on the Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce memes

The Swift and Kelce memes and reactions have been hilarious, appealing to an unusual mix of Swifties, football fans, and hopeless romantics. Many of these Swifties (and hopeless romantics) had never watched a football game in their life, but now the Chiefs game is all they can talk about!

It’s also quite hilarious because Swift seemingly fully intended to break the internet. She knew what she was doing strolling into a Chiefs game with Kelce’s mom and absolutely losing it when Kelce scored a touchdown. This whole thing is Taylor-coded. That’s why it doesn’t feel weird to be oddly invested in this relationship; Swift and Kelce chose to give viewers this perfect scenario.

Let’s also remember that it’s not just Swifties on the internet who lost it over Swift showing up at that game. The funniest reactions to Swift probably came from the players and coaches themselves.

As for the internet, well, let’s just say Kelce and Swift may just be the new Roman Empire.

Even for those who aren’t super into celebrity romances or football, the memes are quite entertaining. With all the heavy stuff on the internet, it’s nice to see people coming together to just celebrate Swift and Kelce creating some kind of real-life High School Musical scenario.
