Scott Swift, father of Taylor Swift and fervent follower of the Philadelphia Eagles, surprised social networks by appearing with a badge from the Kansas City Chiefs during his daughter’s concert in Buenos Aires this weekend. This gesture seems to indicate a change in her sports preferences, taking into account Taylor Swift’s recent relationship with the Chiefs player, Travis Kelce. This fact has caused a stir among the faithful followers of the Eaglessince both Scott Swift and his family are recognized for their support of the Philadelphia team.
In addition to Scott Swift, Taylor Swift also has a well-known fandom for the Eagles. However, this season, the singer has attended four Chiefs games to cheer on Travis Kelce wearing the team’s colors.. This situation has unleashed ridicule among Taylor Swift’s followers and the players of both teams, who eagerly await comments from Jason Kelce (Travis’ older brother and Eagles player) on the next episode of his podcast New Heights.
Immediately, memes began to flood social networks. Among those that caused the most stir was a photograph of a sign posted on the facade of a house that said “welcome home traitor”, alluding to the welcome that Scott will have when he returns from Argentina.
The situation becomes even more interesting when you remember that the Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes, defeated the Eagles in the Super Bowl this year. Some Eagles fans on social media have commented: “The Chiefs took the Super Bowl and Taylor Swift from the Eagles. “Philadelphia is very angry.” In addition, they highlight Scott Swift’s apparent fondness for Travis Kelce, as Taylor’s father has shown his support on several occasions, even applauding his performance on the field in a restaurant.
As mentioned above, Taylor Swift is also (or was) a Philadelphia Eagles fan. Proof of this is his song Gold Rushwhich refers to the team that today is the strongest in the NFL with a record of eight games won and one lost.
“What must it be like?/Growing up this beautiful/With your hair falling into place like dominoes/I see myself walking across your hardwood floors/With my Eagles jersey hanging on the door”Swift sings in this piece from her album Evermore. The singer even had to come out to explain that the shirt she refers to in the song was not about the band Eagles (responsible for Hotel California), but to the team from his native Philadelphia.
“I love the band the Eagles, but guys, come on, I’m from Philadelphia, of course (Golden Rush) is about the team”Taylor declared at the time. However, love seems to be transforming her sports loyalty.
The Swifts’ loyalty will be tested again on November 20 when Travis and the Chiefs take on the Eagles at Arrowhead Stadium. This might seem like a predicament, but Donna, Travis and Jason’s mother, might have the answer. To avoid conflicts with her children, “Mama Kelce” went to the last Superbowl wearing a Chiefs and Eagles t-shirt, showing her support equally for both teams, before the Chiefs beat the Eagles 38-35.
