The Pittsburgh Steelers had a scary incident on Monday morning (Sept. 25), but the team’s defensive end, Cam Heyward, kept the positivity by adding a bit of humor to the situation.
The NFL team was heading back home after winning their game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday (Sept. 24), but according to KDKA News, the plane landed in Kansas City due to an issue with the oil pressure failing in one of the engines. Thankfully, everyone on board is safe and eventually a replacement plane arrived to take the team back to Pittsburgh.
“Yo @taylorswift13 & @tkelce we might need a ride to Pittsburgh,” Heyward joked on X (formerly known as Twitter) after the incident, referring to Taylor Swift‘s headline making appearance at Travis Kelce‘s game with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The tweet comes one day after Swift cheered on the tight end from his suite alongside his mom, Donna, as the team played the Chicago Bears. In a video clip sports reporter Jarrett Payton shared on X, Kelce and the 12-time Grammy winner are seen walking by him shoulder to shoulder. The NFL star nods in greeting to the anchor and asks, “How you doin’” as Tay flashes Payton a smile and says, “Hey!”
After walking out of the stadium, the twosome were spotted riding off together in his convertible, according to photos acquired by TMZ. Neither the singer-songwriter nor pro football player have confirmed whether or not they’re dating.
