Bill Swerski’s Superfans Reunite to Grill Travis Kelce About Taylor Swift

‘Hey Travis, real talk. It’s just the guys here’
Bill Swerski’s Superfans Reunite to Grill Travis Kelce About Taylor Swift

Bill Swerski’s Superfansor at least a few of those mustachioed Saturday Night Live veterans — reunited in Kansas City over the weekend. But instead of extolling the virtues of Da Bears, Coach Ditka or even new #1 pick Caleb Williams, the rib-devouring guys seemed to be more interested in discussing Da Tay-Tay.

Bob Swerski (George Wendt) and Carl Wollarski (Robert Smigel) were the original Superfans in town for Big Slick Celebrity Weekend, the annual fundraiser where Kansas City-area comics enlist showbiz pals to raise money for Children’s Mercy Hospital. The Superfans have enlisted a rotating cast of Bears enthusiasts over the years, including Todd O’Conner (the late Chris Farley), Pat Arnold (Mike Myers) and the original Bill Swerski, Joe Mantegna. This weekend, Jason Sudeikis leaned on his Second City bona fides and donned a fake Chicago mustache to join the crew along with former SNL host and Super Bowl champ Travis Kelce

Sudeikis took a sideways poke at Ted Lasso after Wendt reminded the group that in the rest of the world, soccer is called football. “Yeah?” sneered Sudeikis in his thick Chicago accent. “Here in America, we call it a goddamn waste of time.” Cue the cheers from Chiefs fans.

Wollarski lamented the Bears’ lack of success in getting a new football stadium built, suggesting to Kelce that perhaps he could ask Taylor Swift to foot the bill. “What’s a few hundred million to Taylor?” reasoned Swerski. Kelce shot the idea down, laughing that the deal “ain’t happening.”

But it was Sudeikis who cut to the heart of the matter. “Hey Travis, real talk. It’s just the guys here,” he said conspiratorially, lowering his dark glasses for effect. “When are you going to make an honest woman out of her?”

Pandemonium. Kelse grinned and scratched his whiskered chin, refusing to answer.

“Taylor doesn’t need to be working anymore,” Sudeikis argued. “I know your kicker agrees with me." (Kansas City kicker Harrison Butker got in hot water recently for a commencement speech in which he argued that the lady grads should stay home and have babies, something Bill Maher didn’t see what all the fuss was about.)

Despite their traditional view of marriage, the Superfans were quick to flash their progressive credentials. After all, said Wollarski, Illinois was one of the first states to give women the right to vote. “And they gave all the women’s dead relatives the right to vote too,” added Swerski. “Da vote,” chanted Sudeikis, with the Superfans raising their beer steins in a toast to equality. “Da vote.”

“Guys, you’re really pushing it,” warned Kelce, unwilling to discuss his intentions toward the world’s biggest pop star. But he’s game for more SNL-adjacent comedy gigs. On a recent edition of his New Heights podcast, his brother Jason asked if it was true Travis had landed a part in Adam Sandler’s Happy Gilmore 2

“'I didn't even know there was a job opening for Happy Gilmore 2,” Travis replied, “but if there is, I’ll be a fucking extra.”
