So today's news that Christian is officially dating ESPN college football sideline reporter Samantha Steele isn't really that surprising. And we'll bet Christian is happy to put the football back in the closet at nighttime.
Ponder confirmed rumors about his budding relationship with the lovely Samantha yesterday on Twitter:
Here's what the Bleacher Report had to say in naming Samantha the 34th-hottest female sports broadcaster in the world last month:
|Wrote Steele: "I think I just lost my job..." Aww.|
Sports Cred: The hopelessly adorable Samantha Steele got her start working for Fox Sports net after graduating college. She moved on to a hosting gig with ESPN's Longhorn Network in 2011, and her role on the network covering college football has been substantially increased since the departure of Erin Andrews.A Liberty U grad, eh? Apparently Christian really is looking for a wife, as he suggests in these tweets:
Fun Fact(s): Samantha graduated from the extremely conservative Liberty University, so she isn't likely to ever engage in any entertaining hijinks. But she does love beef jerky.

In any event, congratulations to the happy young couple. Now just don't let her distract you from studying game film, Ponder.
