1 of 22

    Don't you wish Christina Hendricks star of AMC's Mad Men would find her way into the world of sports?  Perhaps she'll get divorced and turn into WAG or even become a player in the Lingerie Football League. 

    That way people on Bleacher Report would find more reasons to talk about her. 

    She's definitely one of the hottest redheads around. But her being a WAG or an athlete is just a pipe dream. 

    Although Christina's not involved in sports, there are plenty of other good-looking redheads that are.

    Here are 20 of the hottest redheads in sports.

20. Rachel Nichols—ESPN Reporter

    Nichols has been with ESPN since 2004. 

    During that time she's covered the NBA and has been a part of Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown.

    She's the sexy redhead.  Don't say that you haven't noticed her. 

19. Emily Samuelson—Ice Dancer

    I swear folks, she looks just like Rachel Nichols on ice skates.

    Lisicki has been out of major tennis competitions because of injury.  But she's now recovered and trying to get back in the swing of things.

    At this weeks U.S. Open, she lost to Zvondoreva in straight sets.  It was the third-straight second round exit for Lisicki.

    Not to worry, She's only 22, we'll definitely be seeing more of this strawberry blonde-haired tennis player in the future.

    Duff's changed her hair color so many times that she's been a redhead on at least one occassion.

14. Jeannie Buss—Executive

    Don't forget Jeanie.  One of the most beloved redheads in Los Angeles sports history.

    People in LA love Jeanie because she's a beautiful woman that is passionate about the Lakers. 

    Plus, it wasn't for her who knows if Phil Jackson would still be around.

    No one really cares for her brother Jimmy or Johnny, whatever his name is.

13. Meredith Oden—Cheerleader

9 of 22

    Here's one Dallas Cowboys cheerleader with fiery locks.

    But Meredith admits that she needs to provide her hair with quite a bit of maintenance, so her hair can maintain that redness.

12. Erica Jenkins—Cheerleader

10 of 22

    Erica over here, is a natural redhead.

    Now, that doesn't happen very often.

11. Brittney Stephens—Cheerleader

11 of 22

    What's a discussion about cheerleaders, if there's no mention about the Laker Girls.

    Here's Brittney.

    As the lone redhead on the Laker Girls last season, she definitely stands out.  Brittney and the rest of the girls helped cheer the Lakers to a second consecutive NBA title.

    Good news, she'll be returning to the squad for the 2010-2011 season.

10. Christy Hemme—Wrestler

    Oh ya, she also rides a Harley.

9. Jennifer—Cheerleader

13 of 22

    And last of the cheerleader is Jennifer.  She's definitely a head-turner.

    I know.  It's hard to focus.  Or, actually it's hard to figure out where to focus.

8. Fabiana Semprebom—WAG

14 of 22

    Fabiana is a Brazilian model engaged to retired tennis player Guillermo Cañas.

17 of 22

    Tanith a silver medalist in the 2006 Olympics, as you may know, was already hot as a natural blonde. 

    Yet, she decided to go darker with her locks.

    With this hair color, her hair is almost auburn.  And she still looks great, don't you think?

    Here's my take: There's really not much she can do wrong.  Her hair looks good, red, brown or blonde.
