And of course, NBA / NFL players have their own appeal.
Jason Campbell was supposed to marry Jenny Montes last weekend according to the couple’s wedding website.
The website VIBE Vixen is reporting that Campbell called it off hours before the ceremony.
Who could forget Boise State running back Ian Johnson getting on bended knee to propose to his cheerleader girlfriend, Chrissy Popadics, after beating Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl?
Chris Myers, the reporter who ruined the proposal, surely remembers.
One of the best young players in the NBA, Dwight Howard, quietly knocked up NBA cheerleader Lyndsay Reed.
Former Arizona QB Jake Plummer – who unbelievably left his fiancee at the altar in Hawaii – married former Broncos cheerleader Kollette Klassen in 2007.
Campbell denied ditching Montes, so it might have been a mutual decision to delay the wedding.
So we thought we’d take a comprehensive look at slightly more prominent athletes who have gotten together with cheerleaders: NBA journeyman Dan Dickau – who was spectacular at Gonzaga – married his high school sweetheart, Heather, who was a Portland Trailblazers cheerleader (and also prom queen and a basketball player herself).Redskins tight end Chris Cooley married Redskins cheerleader Christy Oglevee last year.We're going to limit our discussion here to cheerleaders in professional sports, and we'll limit the professional sports to the NBA and the NFL, the only sports with cheerleaders.As we all know, NBA and NFL cheerleaders are quite attractive.Not sure if anyone was as surprised as we were to learn that noodle-armed Friday Night Lights’ QB Zack Guilford (aka Matt Saracen) was dating former Seattle Seahawks cheerleader Amber Lancaster.
They were even featured in the most recent ESPN the Magazine with Landry (who tonight’s storyline revolves around).
