“Travis Kelce Shoots for the Stars: Chiefs TE Approached by SpaceX for Potential Spaceflight Adventure”
Taylor Swift may have put Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce on the map, but he’s about to go intergalactic with his stardom. While we’ve marveled at Kelce’s on-field accomplishments, he’s now set to break new ground in franchise history, quite literally. Kelce dropped a cosmic bombshell on the latest episode of his “New Heights Show” podcast, revealing an official approach from Elon Musk’s SpaceX for a potential spaceflight.
“This is one of the craziest things we’ve spoken into existence,” proclaimed Travis Kelce in disbelief. His brother and co-host, Jason Kelce, chimed in with equal amazement. “I hope it doesn’t implode,” Travis responded, adding a touch of humor, “Because it sounds like I’m about to go to space.”
The banter continued, with Travis expressing his curiosity about the shape of the Earth. “I want to see once and for all whether the world is flat or round,” he joked. The conversation took a playful turn as Travis pondered the possibility of encountering aliens during his space journey.
Jason, however, preferred to keep his feet on the ground. “I’m not going to space. I like being on the ground with my Cybertruck,” he declared.
If this spaceflight comes to fruition, Kelce won’t be the first NFL player to venture beyond our atmosphere. Leland Melvin, a former Detroit Lions draft pick, embarked on two NASA Space Shuttle missions in 2008 and 2009. Additionally, former Giants DE Michael Strahan experienced space travel on a Blue Origin mission in 2021.
As Kelce contemplates this astronomical opportunity, questions linger about its feasibility during his playing career. Given the caution around Mahomes playing pickup basketball, approval for a space adventure might necessitate some contract adjustments. The NFL might witness its first active player reaching for the stars with Travis Kelce leading the charge.”
