GREEN BAY – It’s happening.
Or if you’re a Swiftie, “IT’S HAPPENING!”
After a week that has run the gamut from mild curiosity for some to all-out giddy speculation for others, the wondering is over and seeing is believing. Taylor Swift is indeed in the house at Lambeau Field for the Kansas City Chiefs-Green Bay Packers game on “Sunday Night Football.”
The pop superstar touched down at Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport at 5:31 p.m. Sunday in her 2009 Dassault Falcon 7X, after a 66-minute flight from Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport in Kansas City, Missouri, according to Instagram account @taylorswiftjets, which tracks her two private jets.
She arrived at Lambeau a short time later as cameras captured her, in a stunning red coat over an all-black outfit and thigh-high boots, on her way up to her suite. NBC’s “Football Night in America” had the first images of her in the suite with snowflakes flying by 6:15 p.m.
Swift, as you might have heard, is in attendance to support her boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. She made the trip with Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Daily Mail shared exclusive photos that showed Brittany Mahomes boarding Swift’s jet at the airport in Kansas City.
The two have been spotted together at previous Chiefs games.
There’s anticipation that Swift might also meet up with champion gymnast Simone Biles, who will be in attendance to support her husband, Packers safety Jonathan Owens? The two women have expressed admiration and support for one another in social media exchanges in the last couple of years.
Local businesses have had fun with all the excitement over the possibility of Swift swooping in, with sports bars near the stadium breaking out her music, friendship bracelets and photo booths for themed nights over the weekend. At Anduzzi’s on Holmgren Way, Swifties could order the “Lover,” a cocktail made with Absolut Vodka, Malibu Rum, lime juice, cranberry juice and lemonade. On Saturday night at Burkel’s One Block Over, Swelce look-alike couples had a shot at winning a bar tab by entering a costume contest.
