In case you haven’t heard, Taylor Swift is in town this weekend, doing sold out shows at US Bank Stadium in what can only be described as the biggest event to hit the Twin Cities since the 1991 World Series.

Chris Long weaves Taylor Swift song titles into broadcast

Avid “Swiftie” and Ch. 5 (KSTP) sports anchor, Chris Long, wanted to commemorate the weekend by weaving as many Taylor Swift song titles into his broadcast as humanly possible on Saturday night. The result was almost as historic as the two-night event, itself.

4 minutes, 7 topics — Twins, ARCA Racing, Caleb Truax, Loons, Aurora, Gopher MBB — 47 song titles and 1 epic segment. I’ve transcribed some of it below, along with all of the T-Swift song titles he weaved in.

“Wanna commemorate Taylor Swift’s weekend takeover of Minneapolis? If so, You Belong With Me. If not, You’re On Your Own Kid, Ready For It? Twins fans knew All Too Well a Cruel Summer might develop if they didn’t find some Daylight this week, but they got Out of The Woods with three-straight wins.

Hoping the Goldrush continues seeking a fourth-straight win in Detroit, Pablo Lopez started, but Death By a Thousand Cuts, a Treacherous second inning – a failed double play, a walk and two bloop singles had the Twins seeing Red, down 3-0.”

“In the sixth, the Fearless Carlos Correa trying to Shake It Off and oh, I Think He Knows – deep into the Lavender Haze for a Clean solo homer. It was 3-2 when the Twins loaded the bases in the 8th, but Alex Lang pulled the Invisible String on a Mean hook to say Peace to Royce Lewis.”

“The state of Minnesota is looking like The Last Great American Dynasty in shotput at track and field’s New York Grand Pris,” Long said. “That’s St. Francis-native Maggie Ewen winning the women’s event – she also took fourth in the hammer throw – and with a throw Bigger Than The Whole Sky, Rosemont native Payton Otterdahl was The 1 in the men’s shot put. Oh, Welcome to New York, Minnesotans. Champagne Problems for our local shot-putters.”
