Dave Portnoy has some thoughts on Taylor Swift’s new rumored romance with Travis Kelce — and he thinks the singer can do better.
The “Cruel Summer” hitmaker, 33, has reportedly been hanging out with the NFL star for a few weeks after Kelce tried — and failed — to give Swift his phone number at one of her recent Eras Tour concerts.
Taking to his Instagram Story Tuesday night, the self-confessed Swiftie posted a poll asking fans if they “ship” the rumored pairing.
“Wouldn’t be my 1st choice but Mother works hard to provide for us,” he wrote. “She is allowed to have fun too.”
Portnoy later took to the Barstool Sports blog to share his thoughts on the match-up, saying approves of the rumored relationship between Kelce and the 12-time Grammy winner.
Admitting that he’s “come a long way” from “despising” the Kansas City Chiefs star, Portnoy still believes the athlete is “a huge spotlight guy.”
“So I bet he likes the idea of dating Taylor more than actually dating her,” Portnoy wrote. “But that’s okay. Taylor loves dating big-name celebs who are sure to break her heart so why not a football player over some DJ or musician?”
“Granted if she went the athlete route I’d picture her more of a Daniel Jones type guy but the heart wants what the heart wants,” he added. “Also I’m a firm believer that the athlete should get the girl not the band geek. That’s just Darwinism 101.”
“So even though I think there is no shot in hell this relationship works or ever gets serious I do support it,” Portnoy added. “At the very least we should get a few good songs out of the break up.”
Elsewhere, Portnoy praised Kelce and admitted to not liking him in the past.
“Over the years he’s sort of won me over by the fact that he keeps dominating and you can talk the talk if you can walk the walk,” he wrote.
“Plus I’ve met him a few times and he’s a nice guy in person. Way more down to earth and normal than I would have guessed by his onfield theatrics.”
