If you only really follow sports, it will be surprising to hear, but the biggest story involving the NFL right now is the rumored relationship between Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and pop megastar Taylor Swift. And, after Travis Kelce scored his first touchdown of the 2023 season, CBS play-by-play announcer Ian Eagle broke out a hilarious Taylor Swift reference that he surely had rehearsed all week.

The play came with 11:30 left in the 3rd quarter, and you just know that Eagle had this one locked and loaded in case Patrick Mahomes found Travis Kelce for a touchdown.

“Touchdown, Travis Kelce! Kelce finds a blank space for the score!” Eagle remarked.

That’s a reference to Taylor Swift’s eight-times platinum 2014 smash-hit ‘Blank Space’.

Fans went nuts for the reference.

An official relationship between Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift hasn’t been confirmed yet, but sources say the two have been ‘hanging out’. Since those reports, the NFL world has been talking about it nonstop, and even Adam Schefter was telling jokes.
