    With all the different social media platforms out there today, who has the time and energy to keep up with all of them? Most of us have places to go, people to see, and things to do—which doesn't leave nearly enough time free to troll the web for various goodies. 

    And you know that if you're keeping moderately busy, then the wives and girlfriends of professional athletes are keeping even busier. The hottest WAGs in sports are living the globetrotting lives of the rich and famous, and many of them are documenting it every step of the way on Instagram.
