The Minnesota Vikings wanted to sign Vincent Jackson to help stop the bleeding from losing Sidney Rice for most of the season. The Chargers played hard ball and the Vikings didn't get their man.
So since they couldn't have Jackson they shrugged and signed Hank Baskett who had been recently cut by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Baskett didn't catch any passes for the Eagles but with Rice out and Harvin still suffering from migraines he might be useful to Minnesota.
As of right now Baskett for two things:
For letting Saints PK Garrett Hartley’s onside kick hit off his facemask in the Super Bowl.
And for being married to our WAG of the Week.
Let's celebrate the second one.
For those of you who don't know Kendra, here are some background notes about her.
She is from San Diego and loves the Chargers...
As you can see.
The rumor is that she was at a Playboy Mansion party dressed in body paint and Hugh Hefner discovered her.
Discovered her for what you ask? To be one of his women, of course.
How did she get in there? No one knows. But if you are hot and you have body paint on as wardrobe, you can get into anywhere.
So once he picked her to be one of his main three...
Hef not only let her move into the house to stay with his other two "girlfriends," but he let E! Network film their day to day lives and make it into a titillating reality show.
From there, Kendra became a household name as the young, ditzy one of the three. Hef let her go out with the girls, but she had a strict curfew to be home before it was too late.
Hef needs his sleep.
Soon Kendra was on other reality shows, proving that she had, umm, talent.
She was also allowed to do photo shoots...
And go to Movie and TV premieres.
Sometimes even by herself!
But after living with the other girls and the Great Hef for a while Kendra announced that she had actually fallen in love with a football player named Hank Baskett and was getting married.
This would mean that she would have to leave the Mansion, or things would get kind of awkward.
Never missing an opportunity, E! decided to give Kendra her own show, but couldn't come up with what it would be about or a name for it.
So they settled on Kendra as a name and well, first comes love then comes...
I have no idea what comes next.
Since then, Kendra has had a ten-year-old sex tape released, that made dinner at the Baskett house tense for a while I imagine.
But it seems as if the couple has weathered the storm. Either that or Kendra convinced Hank that she is a completely different person now.
And even after dropping off a little Hank, she still seems pretty hot.
And it seems like she had no problems dropping the baby weight. Must be good genes.
I'm sure she is happy her husband has a job and more than happy to move with him to Minnesota.
I leave you with my favorite pic of hers.
This sealed her Wag-of-the-Week Status for me.
Then again, this next one is pretty hot too...
I think she is playing football. Maybe.
Okay, this is really the final one coming up.
There, now you can leave her, posing seductively for you.
