Pat Is a Swiftie!

We went from a nationwide team to a full global worldwide team. – Patrick Mahomes

The iconic Patrick Mahomes is making waves in NFL news by rightfully being recognized as one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People, sandwiched right between Beyonce and Elon Musk.

This isn’t the first time Mahomes has made the list–he has also been featured in the 2020 and 2023 editions. However, this is his first cover shoot for the magazine.

In his interview with TIME, the Chiefs quarterback spoke about growing up in major-league baseball clubhouses, A-Rod’s influence on his craft, and, of course, Taylor Swift.

Specifically, Mahomes credited the publicity around Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce for taking the Kansas City Chiefs from national fame to having a global fanbase. “We went from a nationwide team that was kind of global to a full global worldwide team. That came from Taylor’s fanbase.”


He also went on to say that Swift opened up the NFL in a way where kids will “grow up and play football and show their personality and who they are. This year really magnified that.”

 

Mahomes Might Have Dropped a Clue About TTPD…

Patrick also might have accidentally spilled that Taylor Swift has been working on a new music video. He told TIME, “She’s never not working. Even when she’s taking her downtime, she’s working on something. Shooting a music video or singing a song or writing a song.”


He continued to praise her mindset and interest in learning about NFL games, saying, “You can see it by how she talks. Even when she’s talking about football, when she’s learning it, you can see her business mind putting it together. It’s almost like she’s trying to become a coach. ‘Why can’t you try this, this, and this?’ She’s asking the right questions.”


You heard it from the GOAT himself: Taylor Swift might have a future as an NFL coach. (That would be a more shocking pivot than Kim K’s law degree endeavor).

Now, let’s get back to the topic of Mahomes “unintentionally” revealing Taylor’s upcoming music video plans. It wasn’t much of a slip-up. With her highly anticipated album, The Tortured Poets Department, set to release this Friday, it’s no surprise that a new music video is in the works.


But, imagine if the quarterback made a guest appearance in that music video. It would surely cause the internet to go into overdrive. We can only hope and fantasize about adding “#1 backup dancer for Taylor Swift” to Patrick Mahomes’ stats.
