NFL announcer Ian Eagle hilariously poked fun at Travis Kelce after the Chiefs tight end scored a touchdown against the Jaguars on Sunday, as he made a reference to Taylor Swift to highlight the occasion amid dating rumors between the popstar and two-time Super Bowl champion.
Kelce, 33, caught a pass from Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes to increase Kansas City’s 7-6 lead over Jacksonville with 11:31 left in the third quarter.
And while Kelce celebrated his first touchdown of the season with teammates after having missed Kansas City’s season-opening 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 1, Eagle said: ‘Kelce finds a blank space for the score!’
The broadcaster was alluding to Swift’s hit single ‘Blank Space’, which topped charts upon its release in 2014.
Kelce and Swift, who were born the same year (1989), have been linked romantically in recent weeks after it’s been believed that they hung out in New York City over the summer.
What’s more, is that Kelce said on the latest episode of his podcast with his older brother, Jason, that he previously tried to give the ‘You Belong with Me’ singer his number.
The eight-time Pro Bowler attended Swift’s concert at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City earlier this month, ready with a masterplan to ask her out after the live gig.
Kelce cleverly wrote down his phone number on his wristband, hoping that he could give it to Swift when they both met backstage once she was done performing.
However, Swift didn’t want to meet anyone after her show, preferring to rest her vocals following her 44-song performance, thus rejecting Kelce in the process.
