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)

Out final two come from the NBA, former Clippers, Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves guard Marko Jaric, who married former Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima.

and finally Chicago Bulls back up center Omer Asik, and his woman Lindsay Love Davis, a former Miss Ohio (More pics here)

    Please understand….Brooke Daniels is not a big catch! No one wanted her in her hometown! She is a jock. Her mama sued the school disctrict when she didnt make cheer squad. She was caught passing out adderal. This girl could not even go to her homecoming. Her college sweatheart jilted her. She and her family only want fame. Fame at any cost! She never even graduated. Her mother is a stage mom. This girl is another Casey Anthony. She lies when she is breathing. The Williams guy should thank his lucky Dallas stars that he didnt get in this crazy ass family

    The author is probably one of the very few people who believe that these women are stretches for these guys. I can find better looking women in any big city mall.

  5. I visited multiple sites however the audio quality for audio songs present at this website is really fabulous.
