As the Super Bowl hype reaches a new level, there's one topic that has left many Idahoans less than thrilled – the unnecessary buzz around Taylor Swift's romance with Kansas City Chiefs' tight-end, Travis Kelce.

While some may find the celebrity gossip intriguing, it's safe to say that a significant portion of Idahoans and Boise locals would like to shift the focus back to what truly matters: football.

Here are 6 Reasons Why Idaho Doesn't Want to See Taylor Swift at The Big Game:

Football Over Celebrity Drama: In Idaho, football isn't just a game; it's practically a religion. Our towns are football towns, and we'd rather have headlines that scream touchdowns and epic plays, not the romantic escapades of a pop sensation.

Desire for Authenticity: Idahoans respect authenticity, and they're not buying into the manufactured drama. They want the Super Bowl excitement to be about the real deal – the game itself and the commercials that are supposed to be funny.

Escape from Politics and Everyday Issues: Idahoans see sports, especially football, as a much-needed escape from the chaos of the world. They're not tuning in for political debates or vaccine discussions; they just want to kick back and enjoy the game.

Community: In Idaho, community matters. Super Bowl conversations should revolve around shared experiences, cheering for favorite teams with friends and family, and the camaraderie that comes with watching the game together.

Personal Values Check: Plain and simple, some Idahoans don't like Taylor Swift's beliefs, actions, or public statements — or the media's agenda for Taylor Swift. They'd rather not have these narratives shoved into their Super Bowl experience.

Musical Taste: Whether it's real country, rock, pop, or a mix of genres, Idahoans have a playlist that goes beyond the pop charts.

Overrated Much? Some might argue that Taylor Swift is riding the hype train a bit too hard. Or is it the NFL that's using Taylor Swift? She's got the fanbase and the spotlight — it's almost like having her on board might boost the NFL's ratings or something... Is she the secret weapon in the league's playbook?
