Playboy doesn't have to feel silly about being turned down by Katherine Webb before asking, because A.J. McCarron's girlfriend already gave a vehement "no" to posing for the popular magazine.
I remember a buddy back in grade school asked a crush I had what she thought of me, and it seems TMZ is acting as the stand-up bro in this particular case.
A reporter recently caught up with the famed girlfriend of Alabama quarterback, A.J. McCarron. It seems, when you have Webb as your audience for a brief second, you use it wisely.
I'm not sure I would constitute asking her about a possible Playboy spot as wise, but it happened nonetheless.
TMZ has video of the moment when millions of men began weeping into their smart phones and computer keyboards.
Someone coddle Hugh Hefner because past experience tells me the sting of an unrequited crush is fairly painful.
The question is asked bluntly, and Webb returns the volley with a fierce denial, offering, "No. Hello, my, my parents would shoot me. My granddad more importantly."
Some of you may have forgotten Webb, understandable considering all the excitement Beyonce, a blackout and a Ravens Super Bowl victory caused.
Before Go Daddy showed Bar Refaeli making out with a nerd for shock value, there was the enormous rise to fame for one, Katherine Webb.
It was about a month ago when she was standing in the stands at Sun Life Stadium, watching her boyfriend lead his team to a BCS National Championship.
A mere Brent Musburger mention later, and she is the biggest name of 2013, even covering the Super Bowl for Inside Edition.
With fame comes great responsibility—and offers to pose for Playboy, it seems.
Despite your hopes and dreams, Webb is cutting you all off at a bikini shoot, because she will still be featured in Sports Illustrated's upcoming Swimsuit Issue.
So there's that at least.
