NFL Announcer Calls Taylor Swift Travis ‘Kelce’s Wife’ During Game

Commentator Tony Romo quickly corrected himself and apologized during the Chiefs-Bills game

On Sunday, NFL commentator Tony Romo made a call that hasn’t actually happened (yet) during the Kansas City Chiefs’ game against the Buffalo Bills. Romo referred to Taylor Swift as Travis Kelce‘s wife.

In a video clip of the moment, at first the camera is trained on Kelce on the field at Arrowhead Stadium, and then it cuts to Taylor Swift smiling and clapping. “As you see, Kelce’s wife Taylor Swift in the audience,” Romo is heard saying, before he quickly corrects himself. “Or, uh. I’m sorry, girlfriend.” Another commenter adds, “Not yet.”

Swift, who wore a vintage Chiefs sweatshirt, is seen in a suite, supporting her boyfriend as she has done several times since they started dating earlier this year. Swift sat with Travis’ mom, Donna Kelce, in the suite.


Outside of cheering on her boyfriend’s feats, Swift has plenty to celebrate about herself. Last week, she was named Time’s Person of the Year, where she reflected on some of the difficult moments she had to overcome — including sparring with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in 2016, and her master recordings being sold to Scooter Braun, which ultimately led to her (Taylor’s Version) re-recordings of her albums, and she’s moved on. “I’ve also learned there’s no point in actively trying to quote unquote defeat your enemies,” she told Time. “Trash takes itself out every single time.”

Her Eras Tour also became the highest-grossing concert tour of all time, and the tour also became the first ever to gross at least $1 billion. Swift bests Elton John’s years-long Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour for the top spot.
