Super Bowl 2024: One ‘West Wing’ episode shows it’s possible for Taylor Swift to get from Tokyo to Vegas

Now that the Kansas City Chiefs are back in the Super Bowl, the biggest question still unanswered between now and the big game is whether Taylor Swift is going to be able to make to Las Vegas in time for kickoff to watch Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce. 

The Grammy-award winning singer has a concert on Feb. 10 in Tokyo, which means she’s going to have to hustle if she wants to get to the Super Bowl, which kicks off Feb. 11 at 3:30 p.m. PT in Las Vegas.

“It’s 14 hours ahead. We’re sure it’s ahead and not behind?” Lyman asks. “So it’s almost 11 o’clock in Tokyo. … I’m sorry, 11 in the morning, 11 in the afternoon?”

As you can see, everyone is confused. After Lyman’s comments, Seaborn seems to get a handle on things. “He’s going to travel eastward from Tokyo at 7 p.m., so when he crosses the international dateline, it’ll be 3 a.m.”

You know what, let’s just go ahead and watch the clip. 

If that sounds confusing, now you know what Taylor’s team is dealing with right now.
