Travis Kelce completely struck out with Taylor Swift! That’s football, right? LOLz!
The Kansas City Chiefs tight end wanted nothing more than to shoot his shot with the music superstar when he attended her acclaimed The Eras Tour — but his playbook didn’t pan out! Guess she’s not a big fan!
On Wednesday, during a new episode of the New Heights podcast, Travis’ brother Jason Kelce asked him how the show he attended went. Travis, however, didn’t respond with the enthusiasm that was expected:
“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. So, I was a little butthurt that I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
Swifties know that making and trading friendship bracelets at The Eras Tour is a huge thing, and it seems like the 33-year-old got the memo and made one to give to Tay Tay herself!
His bracelet was personalized, too — and extra special, as he explained:
“I received a bunch of [friendship bracelets], but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it.”
Ooh La La!
Jason asked for clarification about which number was on the bracelet, asking:
“Your [jersey] number, as in 87, or phone number?”
To which the NFL athlete admitted, with a cheeky smile on his face:
“You know which one.”
Damn! Talk about going for a touchdown! Sadly, no points were scored, as the Super Bowl winner said through a laugh:
“She doesn’t meet anybody, or at least she didn’t want to meet me. So I took it personal.”
His brother then joked:
“She probably just hasn’t gotten over the Super Bowl, yet. Maybe she’s a big [Philadelphia] Eagles fan and just didn’t want to talk to you.”
Ch-ch-check out the clip (below):
