In the ongoing coverage of Taylor Swift’s connection to the NFL, ESPN’s Joe Buck has shared insights into how the network plans to handle the storyline during Week 11’s Super Bowl rematch between the Chiefs and Eagles.
When asked if he’s preparing by studying Swift’s catalog for Monday night’s broadcast, the MNF sportscaster responded:
I have daughters in their 20s. I’ve been surrounded by that for more than this year. Got to meet her when I took my youngest years ago. She couldn’t have been nicer. You can just tell she’s a good person. So I’m a fan of that. And Travis is a great guy. That said- we will do the game. And if she is there we will document that. It’s a story. As much as some tire of it. We will find the right balance.
Social media users reacted to Buck’s statement:
“Well said,” one user tweeted. “Have a good broadcast. Say hi to Troy and tell him to smile.”
“Truly happy for both and wish them well!!” another commented.
“Joe knows broadcasting and what the people want. Balance! Because it’s not just a story. It’s a LOVE story,” a Chiefs Swiftie said.
The approach reflects an acknowledgment of the Swift-Kelce narrative’s significance while aiming for a balanced broadcast, keeping fans engaged without overshadowing the game itself. The outcome will be revealed come next Monday, with the potential for Swift’s presence to add an extra layer of excitement to the matchup.
