Super Bowl week did not start well for NFL fans triggered by the sight of Kansas City star Travis Kelce’s girlfriend.

Taylor Swift’s night at the Grammy Awards on Sunday — including a record-setting fourth win for Album of the Year and the surprise announcement of a new album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” set for release on April 19 — was a reminder that she does not need to use the NFL to boost her brand.

One of the many public watch parties scheduled in South Florida when the Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Sunday is at Thrōw Social in downtown Delray Beach, which will lean into the sideshow of the game during an event called Here for the Commercials, which includes Swifty themes and is open to anyone age 15 and older.
