Christian Ponder is walking a little taller and whistling a little louder today, and it has nothing to do with the solid season he is having. It has to do with ESPN's Samantha Steele.
The Minnesota Vikings quarterback confirmed he is indeed dating the lovely reporter on Twitter. While we can't see anyone's facial expressions when they send out a tweet, we imagine he was giggling when he posted the confirmation.
Perhaps Busted Coverage's sleuthing softened the 24-year-old quarterback into finally divulging a secret he no doubt wanted to unleash on the world. I mean, when you are dating Steele, you tell anyone who will listen and shout at those who won't.
Boom. That's when you drop the mic and walk off the stage called life.
If that weren't enough, Ponder answered another question from a fan, confirming that he has no problems reaching behind himself and patting his own back.
@mollyedesign haha I'm not gonna lie I am kind of impressed with myself too— Christian Ponder (@cponder7) October 18, 2012
Millions of bros are quite jelly face right now, because the envy is indeed massive.
The 26-year-old reporter is a rising star at ESPN, while Ponder continues to elevate his form and reputation in the league.
He has his team at 4-2 and has a solid 92.4 quarterback rating while passing for 1,434 yards.
If you see Ponder out there, send him a high-five from me.
