I thought Sunday’s performance looked fishy.

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was cooked heading into his Week 8 matchup against the New York Giants. His team was winless and he was already turning into an after-thought in a Matt Moore led offense.

103 rushing yards later and Bush was looking like the player that was drafted second overall in 2006.

Now word has come out that Bush had a secret lunch with reality starlet Kim Kardashian over the weekend. has the story:

According to a person close to Reggie Bush, the NFL star and Kim Kardashian met up on Saturday afternoon.

The insider, who spoke to on the condition of anonymity, tells us that Kim and Reggie met up at BAR MASA – a high priced sushi restaurant in NYC. According to the source, “[Kim] knew that Reggie was in town to play [the New York] Giants, so she asked him to meet for lunch.”

The sources goes on to say that Kim was very excited about the meeting.

Ah hah!

The couple had dated on-and-off throughout Bush’s stint with the New Orleans Saints, but eventually had broken things off for good—or so we thought.

Bush has been linked to a Kim K. look-alike since their relationship…but obviously she just doesn’t compare to the real thing.

So does some Kim time make everything better for Reggie? Is that all it takes to get him back on track? Does that also mean her ex-husband Kris Humphries will now promptly stink up the joint for the New Jersey Nets?

Make sure to keep an eye on Bush in his next game against the Chiefs. If he has another great game…maybe there is more to Kim than we all thought.

Maybe she is the secret to an athlete’s success. Maybe she should have gotten a Super Bowl ring from the Saints for her efforts. Maybe this girl really does deserve to constantly be in the spotlight.

Or maybe the Giants run defense just isn’t very good.
