Rob McElhenney’s Hilariously Savage Jab At Ryan Reynolds After The Chiefs Game
Basic refresher just in case you need it: Rob McElhenney co-owns Wrexham AFC with Ryan Reynolds. Ryan is married to Blake Lively. Blake is close friends with Taylor Swift. Blake and Ryan attended the Kansas City Chiefs v New York Jets game in New Jersey with Taylor on Sunday.
Now that we reminded you of those details, we can add a few more that you may or may not already know. Taylor Swift’s 2020 song, Betty, has characters named James, Inez, and Betty. James, Inez, and Betty are the names of Blake and Ryan’s oldest daughters. That’s the kind of friendship they have. Blake and her daughters were spotted at Lincoln Financial Field for Taylor’s concert this past summer. The Philadelphia Eagles play their home games at Lincoln Financial Field.
There’s more. Rob is a die hard Eagles fan. In 2018, Jason Kelce was cast to play “Fat Mac” in a flashback of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Taylor Swift may be dating Travis Kelce. Or Taylor and the Kelce family are pulling off a marketing campaign of epic-Kardashian size proportions.
Rob and Ryan are known for sharing jabs back and forth. When the Philadelphia native saw that his friend and business partner in the East Rutherford, NJ suite last night, the criticism was eminent.
There’s no context around this photo. We don’t know at what point in the Chiefs 23-20 win over the Jets that it was taken. We’re not sure what was going on on the field at that moment. We do know that the cameras were on that suite a lot.
Rob snagged this photo from the game where Ryan was looking less than enthused. Next to Ryan, Blake, Taylor and a suite full of people from Taylor’s payroll were excitedly cheering. The caption simply says: That moment when you realize she meant “American” football.

Rob isn’t the only one making American football jokes. Men in Blazers took footage of Ryan walking through security with Blake and Taylor. They added the joke: “Taylor Swift arrives at Jets game with fourth tier football club owner (mind blown emoji).
