Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about his thoughts on pop star Taylor Swift and had an interesting revelation.
It became evident that Reid is indeed a fan of Swift and that he even knows her from way back
“Like you, I know her from Philadelphia,” Reid said, when speaking with his former quarterback Donovan McNabb on his podcast, called The Five Spot.
“Her dad is a big NFL fan, so I had met her and her dad when she was real young.
“I joked about setting [Travis] Kelce up, I’m just saying.
“She’s a good girl. She’s into it and we’re glad she’s here.”
The Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift phenomenon
The discussion revolved around Swift’s blossoming romance with the Chiefs’ star tight end, Travis Kelce, which has garnered considerable attention in both the sports and pop culture worlds.
This relationship has brought a new audience to the NFL, and the league has welcomed the increased publicity, as has coach Reid.
When did Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift start dating?
The rumors of Swift and Kelce “hanging out” started in September, and Swift later attended a Chiefs home game to support Kelce.
Recently, they were seen together in public in New York, and made surprise appearances on ‘Saturday Night Live’, and had their first public display of affection captured by cameras while in Manhattan.
Kelce had some free time over the weekend as the Chiefs had already beaten the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football, with Swift in attendance.
Their next game will be against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, though it’s not clear if Taylor Swift will attend this one.
