Tony Romo Mistakenly Refers To Taylor Swift As Travis Kelce’s Wife


NFL announcer Tony Romo made a blunder during the recent Kansas City Chiefs game, mistakenly referring to pop star Taylor Swift as the wife of Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce. The embarrassing mix-up occurred while Romo was providing play-by-play commentary alongside Jim Nantz during the Chiefs’ game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day.

Key Takeaway

Tony Romo mistakenly referred to Taylor Swift as Travis Kelce’s wife during a live NFL broadcast, sparking amusement and highlighting the need for accuracy in sports commentary.

Romo’s Confusion

As the camera panned to Taylor Swift, who was present at the game to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce, Romo misspoke, calling her Travis’ wife instead of his girlfriend. This slip of the tongue was quickly corrected by Romo, who acknowledged his mistake and clarified that he meant to say “girlfriend.”
