The Actual Amount Of Time Taylor Swift Was Shown On TV During The AFC Championship Game Is STUNNING

That's...it? All the takes, tweets, and conversations around the water cooler about how often Taylor Swift was shown during the AFC Championship Game amounted to less time than it took for me to conceive my children? For shame!

Look, I love internet pig piles as much of the next guy. Why do you think I started blogging at Barstool? To shake my fist at a popular trend I don't like knowing my coworkers and commenters feel the same way. But for the life of me, I don't understand how people don't understand that the biggest superstar in the WORLD dating a superstar from America's biggest sport is a big story, especially once he had a chance to make it to the Super Bowl™ Big Game.

I know, I know. There is going to be a lottttttttttttttt of Taylor Swift chatter over the next 10+ days that will drive people mad. But it's not like people are going to forget a football game is going to be played. If you want to hear someone's opinion on if Brock Purdy is a good quarterback, a game manager, or both, I'm sure you can find a talking head to give it to you. If you want a current or ex-NFL player to weigh in on what it will take for Patrick Mahomes to be the GOAT, I can guarantee there will be no shortage of them on Radio Row in Vegas pitching some sort of product. And if you want to hear about the person who owned pop culture for the entire summer, you can do that too (even though she has also had enough of the cameras despite the perfect corporate tie-in and having about as much screen time on Sunday as marine life, Brittany Mahomes, and the Harbaugh fellas).
