- It’s not the first time this season that Travis Kelce is a star on social media but it had nothing to do with Taylor
The bad blood between Travis Kelce and Andy Reid disappeared as Super Bowl LVIII ended with a Kansas City Chiefs victory as the pair were all smiles as they celebrated their second straight rings following a dramatic 25-22 turnaround in Sin City.
Kelce’s late-game vibe was an emphatic change after he hit Andy Reid on the bench during the second quarter, knocking the 65-year-old Kansas City coach a few steps back after teammate Isiah Pacheco fumbled. the ball inside the red zone.
Kelce ran toward Reid and yelled at him after the fumble.
‘Did you see that?’ Kelce said. ‘I’m going to keep it between us unless my microphone up tells the world. She was just telling him how much she loved him.
Reid said Kelce just wanted to be on the field. “There’s no one better than him,” Reid said. “He’s a competitive kid. He loves to play. He makes me feel young. But my balance is terrible.”
Regardless of the real reasons for the fight, social media reacted with hilarity, comparing the dispute to sandwich orders, anger over a possible remake of the hit ’90s movie Twister, and a debate about the best era of T. Swift.

The memes multiplied after the incident was broadcast live during the big game.
When asked about the incident, Kelce had nothing but praise for his coach.
‘I didn’t care about my catches. I just wanted… I wanted the score to be different. The coach has asked us to say what we think and he just wanted to let him know how much passion I have for this team,’ he told the media amid the celebrations.
He is one of the best male leaders I have ever seen. And he has helped me a lot with that, with channeling that emotion, with channeling that passion. “I owe my whole career to that guy and being able to control how emotional I get and just love him,” he added.
This was the second bench incident involving Kelce and Reid this season.
During a game against the Raiders on Christmas Day, an angry Kelce stabbed Kelce’s helmet into the sideline, and when a staff member tried to give it back to the tight end so he could take the field, Reid grabbed the helmet and refused to give it to him. back.
Kelce finished with nine catches for 93 yards, including a crucial catch in overtime, to help the Chiefs win their second straight Super Bowl.

“I never had any doubts,” Kelce said. “We have the best quarterback in the league, we have the best offensive line in the league and we have the greatest determination of any team in the NFL and you saw all of that tonight.”
‘I guess at this point I take it for granted, but I know that in every game I’ve ever played, no matter what the score is or how much time is left, that guy has magic in his right arm.’
One night after Swift won the fourth Grammy of her career for album of the year last week, Kelce said he told her “I’d have to hold up my end of the deal and bring home some hardware too.”
Swift flew halfway around the world to see her boyfriend, who also said during opening night of Super Bowl week on Monday, “I want this more than I’ve ever wanted a Super Bowl in my life.”
After the game, Kelce said now on to the next feat.
