You’ve heard of the expression “out-kicking your coverage,” or perhaps “punching above your weight class?” That’s what this post is all about, five guys in the sports world who are WAY overachieving in terms of their GFs, wives etc. Some of these men have fame, big money and are in tremendous physical shape, but some of them don’t.
And even the guys in this group that do have those qualities…when you see them next to the gorgeous beings they’ve landed, the extreme physical disparity is still outrageous and sometimes laughable.
We begin with a couple which made big news last week, or at least one half of them did. 2009 Miss Texas Brooke Daniels finally returned the $76,000 engagement ring Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams sent her in the mail alng with a video proposal. What a shock she said no. What’s more insane, spending long dough like that on a little rock? Or sending it snail mail? Or proposing in any manner that isn’t in person?
Anyways, Daniels turned down a mediocre, underachieving NFL wide receiver for a University of Houston infielder named David Murphy who hit .241 in 29 at bats last season. I’d make fun of him more, but when I found out that Murphy is a leukemia survivor, and that the disease developed in him at almost the same age that I developed Hodgkin’s Disease, I realized this guy is one of my bros and I can’t rip him anymore. I’m a two-time cancer survivor, so fellow cancer survivors (other than Lance Armstrong of course, who used that status as an excuse to become the BIGGEST IMMORAL DOUCHE IN HISTORY) are essentially off limits.
But yes, your girlfriend is (physically anyway) way out of your league. And I say kudos to for that!
Another athlete who’s made news recently is Hope Solo, who dominated in the U.S. Women’s soccer triumph over Brazil yesterday. Again the guy was overachieving, which means she was under-kicking her coverage. But she figured things out and cut her douchey, slimy looking ex-boyfriend loose. You can find out more about Hope Solo’s ex-bf here.
Philadelphia Phillies slugger Ryan Howard is a mega-superstar, MLB MVP and could probably crush me into 100 little pieces with just his forearms. However, his Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Krystle Campbell is such a ludicrously hot specimen of the human race that he looks kind of well see the pic below. (And yes, it is required by law that every single NFL cheer squad has at least one member named Krystal, Crystal or some altered spelling of that stripper name)
and finally Chicago Bulls back up center Omer Asik, and his woman Lindsay Love Davis, a former Miss Ohio (More pics here)
