First they were dating... then they got engaged... now they're married. The most talked about couple in the blogosphere, ESPN's Samantha Steele and Vikings QB Christian Ponder, got hitched this week in Wisconsin the day after Ponder's Vikings beat the Rams in St. Louis. Via TwinCities.com...
"Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and ESPN reporter Samantha Steele were married late afternoon Monday, Dec. 17, in St. Croix County Court in Hudson, Wis., according to court officials.
Ponder, 24, and Steele, who turned 27 last week, were married by Court Commissioner Stephen Dunlap.
According to county records, Steele listed an Arizona address, while Ponder listed his residence as Excelsior, Minn. It is the first marriage for both."
Kids move so fast these days, don't they? As the news was made public, Steele had this to say to haters on Twitter...
Twitter is so tricky. Who knew that "she's pregnant" & "they'll be divorced soon" are just the 2012 version of "congrats"! Thx guys! :)— Samantha Steele (@Samantha_Steele) December 19, 2012
Why would you tweet someone just to tell them their marriage will fail? That seems even stranger and more pointless than trying to recruit high schoolers to your favorite college team. Yeesh. I remember the days Twitter was used for forces of good, like making fun of Craig James.
