Remember a drinking game when you were a teenager and had to take a sip every time a word was said in a movie?
Stopping at nothing to get things done, we decided to create our own version while watching the Super Bowl.
The goal? I take a sip every time Taylor Swift came on screen.
Let's say we took a sip of ginger ale because we are on duty and it was supposed to be a strenuous exercise after all.
It's going strong
Things got off to a flying start when we saw Taylor during Post Malone's very sensitive rendition of “America the Beautiful.” It is very pretty in our opinion.
The young singer was then seen again during the national anthem sung by Reba McEntire. At this point we thought it would be a good choice to go for the ginger ale as it heralded an evening of many sips.
Ultimately, there were few goals in the first half as Taylor was used once in the first quarter and twice in the second quarter. We could see that she was in a dressing room with some familiar faces, including singer Lana Del Rey and actress Blake Lively, as well as Travis' mother Kelce and his brother Jason, who were wearing a Chiefs swimsuit and cap, although he is a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.
We lost count toward the end of the fourth quarter as the deadline approached, but we saw the singer a good half dozen times, often after important Chiefs games.
But she wasn't the only one attracting the cameras as we also spotted Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, LeBron James, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, chef Gordon Ramsay and Jimmy Kimmel.
Games are made
If drinking ginger ale isn't really your thing, you may have decided to make a bet. Because in such an important game you can bet on almost anything.
Take the national anthem, for example. You could bet on how long Reba McEntire's performance would last. Book reviewers preferred a short hymn of less than 91 seconds. It took 102.
This means that if you had bet for longer than 91 seconds, the odds would have been set at 102. In other words, you would have pocketed $102 for every $100 bet.
In short, you would have had to pay $1,000 to use the winnings from the bet to buy a beer with a tip at the stadium.
