If you think there are rules against cheerleaders dating athletes, think again. The scintillating sight of a pom-pom pumping beauty riling up the crowd doesn't go unnoticed by the legends who grace the field.
The role of a cheerleader is to excite the crowd and motivate the team, but some gals go above and beyond in search of citywide and personal happiness. When it comes to love, spiraling footballs and steaming fastballs can't possibly separate a warrior and his most passionate support.
From tumbling, stumbling and rumbling on the sideline to prancing down the aisle to the pounding of "Here Comes the Bride," these ladies all yearn for that happy ending. Let's see which ladies fell into the crevices of athletic love.
Most will have to settle for the press box.
The ultimate way to improve the golf course is to dilute it with beautiful gridiron cheerleaders who know what support truly is.
Hunter Mahan did what any gentleman would and secured the love of a Dallas cheerleader, one lovely Kandi Harris. From gridiron to graceful green, her road has since become a bit more relaxed.
The puppy love between Matthew Stafford and his college sweetheart Kelly Hall is inspiring to say the least. Georgia quarterback meets Bulldogs cheerleader, as cliched as cliched gets.
But these two aren't as routine as one might expect. Recently, the couple donated $15,000 for tickets to be donated to a family whose daughter is going to have surgery. True heroics.
With this illustrious BYU couple having officially said their "I Dos," Whitney Wonnacott and Jimmer Fredette can begin their procreation of the next March Madness sensation.
Now for the name...Jammer Fredette.
This Texas-based collision was buried deep beneath the sports surface for awhile, until it was announced that 'Boys cheerleader Brooke Sorenson was in fact set to walk down the aisle with MLB utility man Laynce Nix.
It may be late, but word has it they need a "Tonga Wine Cooler" from Crate and Barrel if you still want to send them a gift.
Defamation suits and "How Low" competitions may have clouded this "relationship," but considering Dwight Howard and former Magic dancer Royce Reed had a son together, she's cemented in the WAG world for good.
Rumor has it that this beautiful member of Spain’s Dream Cheer dabbled in some Shannon Brown, possibly ruining a Lakers title run in the process. Boyfriend Pau Gasol was naturally cemented right in the center of the drama.
On the other hand, we never believe much out of Vanessa Bryant's mouth.
This love story started out awkwardly. Laurie and Matt reportedly met at a charity golf tournament that was being hosted by one of Schaub's teammates. But Laurie Flynn somehow thought the 6'5" slinger worked at the club.
After friends unsuccessfully attempted to get them together, the future Schaubs eventually sparked a romance. To this day, not even former teammate and buddy David Anderson knows Schaub better than his elegant wife. Watch their trivial pursuit.
Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, Miss Daytona Beach USA 2008, seasoned vet in the WAG business.
Zack Greinke's wife just keeps adding to that stacked resume.
With the nuptials set for December of '12, Krystle Campbell and Phillies slugger Ryan Howard can begin plans for a magical honeymoon.
As long as he doesn't tear his Achilles while exiting the plane. Just kidding big guy. Bravo on the catch.
This former KK Olimpija cheerleader married Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic in May of '12.
And we expect he's been drooling ever since.
The crosstown rivalry between the Niners and Raiders was put on temporary hold when San Fran quarterback Alex Smith tied the knot with former Raiderette Elizabeth Barry.
He's simply keeping his enemies closer.
As a blossoming legend on the diamond, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria needed the addition of a beautiful woman by his side to complete his quest.
Insert scorching model Jaime Edmondson, who's an avid sports fan. Just check out her array of jersey shots.
The lucky recipient of a post-touchdown hug from Bills boyfriend David Nelson, Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich has dominated the sports scene for some time now.
Let's rewind that back. Instead of giving Reich the ball, while still down two scores to the team she cheers for, perhaps an engagement ring should've been in order from Nelson.
Just over a year since separating from ex-wife Rhonda Worthey, former quarterback Troy Aikman was ready for some fresh fish.
The lovely new victim is former Cowboys cheerleader (didn't see that coming) Abigail Klein. She gives the high-flying Aikman a taste of his rich Dallas past.
Once an unknown spark plug seen dancing on the Charlotte hardwood, Jordan Fish now finds herself starting a family with Nascar's Denny Hamlin.
The two have gone strong for awhile, but now it's time to start with names. Of all the David Newton-provided possibilities (courtesy of ESPN), we're liking Michael Jordan Hamlin the best.
Will Middlebrooks has made a nice carving in his first year with the Red Sox. As their starting third baseman (with Kevin Youkilis gone), he's clonked 15 home runs, driven in 54 runs and hovered around .288.
Oh, and he's secured the love of his life in Dallas cheerleader Ann Lux, who gave up her pom-poms for life as a diamond doozy.
Once a cheergirl for a National Rugby League team, the Canberra Raiders, Chloe Butler is now tearing opponents to shreds on the gridiron. Just ask Lingerie Football League quarterback Minnesota Valkyrie quarterback Jana Skrtic, who received a broken arm on a hit by Butler.
Rugby boyfriend Travis Waddell couldn't be more proud.
