Christian Ponder, and the whole Vikings team, have been on a bit of a slide the last few weeks. So of course local radio station KFAN asked the tough questions about his performance:
On how his attractive girlfriend – ESPN personality Samantha Steele – isn’t affecting his performance:
“She has nothing to do with it. We’ve been dating since the beginning of the season, so she had also to do with the five wins. So it has really nothing to do with anything on the football field.”
So can a girlfriend be so hot that she makes a athlete perform worse? Well I would hope not since they are supposed to be professional athletes and this is their job. And why is the opposite question is never asked? Maybe athletes struggle because their girlfriends aren’t hot enough, hmmmm ever think of that one?
