Taylor Swift on a trip to Vegas: true love or total destroyer of the Earth?
The Sports Seriously team asked fans at Super Bowl LVIII if they thought Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s romance was bad for the planet.
LAS VEGAS — The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl 58 in 13 overtime games.
And we’re all wondering, “Were the Swifties right?” »
The game, which ended 25-22, could have gotten off to an unlucky start as neither team scored in the first quarter and each team committed a turnover. But when the Kansas City Chiefs scored a field goal late in the second quarter, putting them behind the San Francisco 49ers 10-3, the conspiracy theories surrounding Taylor Swift and her lucky No. 13 charm seemed real. .

After entering halftime with a total score of 13, the Chiefs kept the mystery alive by scoring another field goal followed by a touchdown in the third quarter, giving Kansas City 13 points and its first lead of the game. Patrick Mahomes’ TD throw was intended for wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Mahomes wears No. 15. Valdes-Scantling wears No. 11. The average ? 13.
The pop superstar, who is dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, visited Allegiant Stadium after flying her private jet 13 hours to Los Angeles from Tokyo, then flew to Las Vegas for the match. The Super Bowl is the 13th Chiefs game she has attended this season to cheer on her man. The numbers 5 and 8 in the Super Bowl edition, the date – February 11 (2+11) – and the 49ers numbers all add up to 13.
Fans said it was Swift’s “lucky Super Bowl,” even though San Francisco’s star quarterback Brock Purdy wears number 13. The popstar was born on Dec. 13 and used to to write the number on his hand as a nod to the number.
Speculation spread so much that actor O’Shea Jackson Jr., who is Ice Cube’s son, even commented on the oddity.
“This Taylor Swift 13 conspiracy is wiiiiild,” he said in a series of messages on formerly Twitter. “I’m sorry but it’s (expletive) amazing and I really appreciate it.”
