The 35 Hottest Daughters in Sports
If your father is the architect of powerhouse collegiate football program, a Hall of Fame legend, or holds any other title that makes him either a common sports trivia answer, coveted ESPN SportsCenter "exclusive" interview—or both—then you are going to get attention.
If the above is true and you're a lady who is easy on the eyes, you're going to get lots of attention.
These ladies are welcome on the red carpet and sometimes grace the pages of A-List magazines like Esquire or GQ, courtesy of iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz.
For most of us the phrase "When it rains, it pours" resonates in the most painful way. However, for these girls, it takes on a whole knew meaning.
Already born into wealth, prestige and a rare, intimate link to a team or sport, the universe "piled on" by giving them sultry eyes, smokin' bods and sexy charisma.
Oh the humanity!
Since we bear the burden of not being in line to inherit a historic NFL franchise, we might as well make the best of it...and enjoy the view.
These are the 35 hottest daughters in sports.
