During Monday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made a familiar mistake. He once again referred to Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce's girlfriend, pop star Taylor Swift, as his wife.
Romo made the comment after Kelce caught a screen pass and gained a first down, with the cameras showing Swift cheering in the suite. Romo said, "Wow! You saw the juice. He caught that, he took off. Looking like a young Kelce ... And his wife loves it, I mean girlfriend."
Romo's mistake was quickly pointed out by his co-broadcaster Jim Nantz, who said, "You’ve been down that road before." This is not the first time Romo has made this error. During the Chiefs' game against the Buffalo Bills earlier this month, Romo also mistakenly referred to Swift as Kelce's wife. He said, "... As you see Kelce’s wife, Taylor Swift, in the audience ..." and promptly apologized for the mistake.
Swift has been a prominent fixture at Chiefs games this season, causing headlines in both the entertainment and sports worlds. She was with Kelce for the Christmas Day game and Kelce had previously mentioned plans for a "fun" holiday week with the singer.
However, despite rumors, it appears that wedding bells are not in their immediate future. This is an amusing and lighthearted story that highlights Romo's repeated slip of the tongue when it comes to Kelce's relationship with Swift.
