WATCH: Minnesota Sportscaster Works 47 Taylor Swift Song Titles Into Broadcast
Taylor Swift took over Minneapolis this weekend, entertaining well over 100,000 Swifties during two sold out shows at U.S. Bank Stadium. Everywhere she goes, excitement follows.
I'm sure your Facebook, Instagram and other social media feeds were loaded with Taylor Swift pictures and videos from those who were lucky enough to get ahold of a ticket. I know that I saw my fair share and I think it's great that everyone seemed to be having such a great time.
While I didn't get to a show this weekend, I did have the opportunity in 2009 to not only see Taylor Swift on her Fearless tour, but I got to bring my wife, my niece, and her friend backstage to meet her at Target Center. She was extremely sweet and genuine, making sure to give my niece and her friend big hugs. I knew she was a talented artist, but once I witnessed the personal bond she was developing with her fans, I knew superstardom wasn't far away.
The reviews on her current tour have also been great. The StarTribune, for example, called her Friday show "the most fan-fulfilling concert of all time in Minneapolis." Music critics weren't the only media members taking advantage of Tay Tay Mania in Minneapolis. KSTP-TV sportscaster Chris Long brought it to a whole new level.
On his Saturday night sportscast, he creatively managed to work in a whopping 47 Taylor Swift song titles. This was all done in about 4 minutes. You can see below that even Chris lost track of how many Taylor Swift songs he'd rattled off.
Well done, Chris Long! Something tells me he has Swifties at home who inspired him to dig deep to come up with all of those song titles!
