Kansas City Chiefs player James Winchester said his teammate Travis Kelce was “smiling and blushing” when Taylor Swift attended her first game.

On Wednesday’s episode of the “Like a Farmer Podcast,” the long snapper talked to Pat Spinosa about the moment he found out the “Bad Blood” singer was in Kelce’s family suite during their game against the Chicago Bears last September.

After initially believing that Swift’s appearance at the game was “made up,” Winchester said the Chiefs’ equipment manager pointed the pop star out to him from the sidelines.

Winchester, 34, then detailed walking over to Kelce while they were on the sidelines during the game to show him Swift.

“I’m like, ‘Hey man, that’s cool she’s here,’ and he’s like, ‘What do you mean? Did they put her up on the Jumbotron or something?’ and I’m like, ‘No, no, Jay just told me,'” he recalled.

Winchester said his teammate began “smiling and blushing” about her being there to support him.
