How Travis Kelce's Attempt to Give Taylor Swift His "Number" Was Intercepted

Travis Kelce had his game plan ready when attending a recent Taylor Swift concert, but he revealed to his brother Jason Kelce that he wasn't able to complete the pass.

Travis Kelce recently shared his failed attempt to shoot his shot and talk to Taylor Swift at her Kansas City stop on her Eras Tour July 7. As it turns out, he had a special gift for her. In keeping with Swiftie tradition, he showed up to the concert with friendship bracelets bearing his "number" that he'd hoped to pass off to the pop singer. But apparently, the Kansas City Chiefs star couldn't get past the line of scrimmage that is Taylor's pre-show rituals.

"I was disappointed that she doesn't talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings," Travis shared on the July 26 episode of his New Heights podcast with brother Jason Kelce. "So I was a little butt-hurt I didn't get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her."

And after explaining the friendship bracelet concept to the Philadelphia Eagles center, the 33-year-old added, "I received a bunch of them being there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it."

But whether the bracelet was a Hail Mary to get the "Anti-Hero" singer his phone number or whether it just bore his jersey number? Travis kept it coy...

"Oooo," Jason teased his brother, before asking, "Your number as in 87 or your phone number?"

But apparently Travis doesn't kiss and tell—even if he muffed the play. He simply told Jason, "You know which one."

And the NFL tight end isn't the only celebrity to be sure to attend one of the Grammy winner's tour stops. In fact, at the very same show Travis attended, Taylor brought out special guests Taylor Lautner, Joey King and Presley Cash who all starred in her "I Can See You" music video off her Speak Now (Taylor's Version) album.

Keep reading for a list of all the stars who have jammed out to Taylor's many eras at one of her concerts.
