In an unexpected turn of events at the Super Bowl press conferences on Thursda
Kansas City Chiefs players found themselves facing an unusual challenge
completing the lyrics to popular Taylor Swift songs.
While the focus of the event is typically on Sunday’s big game, one journalist decided to switch things up by testing the pop knowledge of some of the team’s biggest stars.
The spotlight was on Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, especially given his relationship with Taylor Swift. When asked to complete the lyrics to Swift’s hit song “Karma,” the reporter began singing, “Karma is the guy on…” Kelce quickly responded with a grin, “Chiefs of course,” drawing laughter from the audience.
However, the challenge didn’t end there. The reporter continued with the next line, “coming straight,” leaving Kelce momentarily stumped. Instead of attempting to finish the lyrics, Kelce humorously deflected by asking, “What’s the second question?” The song “Karma” holds special significance for Kelce, as Swift once changed the lyrics during a concert to reference him after he attended one of her shows in Argentina.
Even Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes wasn’t spared from the pop quiz. When confronted with the lyrics, “It’s me,” Mahomes promptly responded, “Hi, I’m the problem, it’s me,” earning applause from the crowd.
Despite the light-hearted atmosphere during the press conferences, the Chiefs players are well aware that their attention must soon shift back to the serious business of Sunday night’s Super Bowl matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Despite being reigning champions, the Chiefs find themselves as slight underdogs in the quest for the Lombardi Trophy.
As the excitement builds for the highly anticipated game, it’s clear that the Chiefs are prepared for whatever challenges come their way – whether it’s on the football field or in a spontaneous Taylor Swift lyric quiz.
