Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs are focused on winning Super Bowl LVIII. This means that they’re ready to do whatever it takes to bring home a victory. Of course, superstitions and lucky charms may also be part of the deal. Recently, the tight end admitted that he believes he knows why he’s been playing at a higher level as of late. However, he claims his lucky charm isn’t his girlfriend Taylor Swift.
Instead of praising Swift for her support and love as he’s done in the past, Kelce shared his real lucky charm. Hilariously, the athlete credited his grown-out facial hair as the reason for his improved play over the past few weeks. Kelce says his beard helped Kansas City get to the Super Bowl, and it’s clear he’s hoping they take home the championship as well.
Travis Kelce Credits His Beard, Not Taylor Swift for Super Bowl Success
According to Page Six, Travis Kelce opened up about the power of his beard during his New Heights podcast with brother, Jason Kelce. He didn’t mention Taylor Swift as a reason for his team’s luck. Although he did say that he believes the beard is working in his favor.
“We’re growing it. Putting in that work,” Kelce said when his brother questioned his facial hair. “Like I’ve been working for something, like I’ve been focused on something. Like I’ve been working towards getting s—t done,” he continued. “I’ve been playing way better since I’ve been growing it,” he added.
Kelce praised his beard for helping him make it to Super Bowl LVIII. However, he has also shouted out Swift in the process. Previously, the NFL star admitted that having the singer’s love and support has been a driving force helping him to play harder to reach his goal of another championship.
All eyes will be on Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift during the Super Bowl. Of course, fans are hoping for yet another sweet on-field moment between the couple after the game as well.
