Swifties’ Playbook: Navigating Super Bowl LVIII

The Super Bowl is getting closer and one of the big storylines is Taylor Swift and her presence at the games. Some hate seeing her there, especially conservatives, and think she is ruining football, while others are watching football for the first time just to see her. Here’s a guide for Swifties to enjoy the game. It’s ok to watch the game because of Taylor and fall in love with football, a sport with a rich history and exciting players. The album folklore has characters James, Betty, and Augustine in a love triangle. The Chiefs are like James, the 49ers like Augustine, and the Lombardi Trophy like Betty. The 49ers are in their Reputation era, on the hunt for redemption, while the Chiefs could be in their 1989, Speak Now, or Midnights era. Players and their Taylor Swift songs include Travis Kelce with “You Belong With Me,” George Kittle with “I Knew You Were Trouble,” Patrick Mahomes with “Anti-Hero,” Brock Purdy with “You Need To Calm Down,” Isiah Pacheco and Christian McCaffery with “Getaway Car,” and Deebo Samuel with “Shake It Off.” This guide will help Swifties and football enthusiasts understand the game and what’s at stake in the Super Bowl.
