Music superstar’s relationship with Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce has brought a wealth of new fans to the Chiefs and the NFL in general, and there have even been conspiracy theories about the team’s playoff run to maintain that new interest and help. get US President Joe Biden re-elected.
This week NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called those statements “nonsense”, while many in the media speculated whether she would be able to attend the Super Bowl during when she was playing in Tokyo on Saturday.
She did, joining dozens of stars in the crowd at Allegiant Stadium, even though she and Kelce seemed embarrassed at halftime. He only had one catch for one yard in the first half and showed his frustration by punching coach Reid and yelling at the 65-year-old.
But Kelce, 34, finished the game with 93 receiving yards, with Mahomes passing for 333 yards and two touchdowns.
