I have already started looking to 2012 with one of my last articles, The 25 Sexiest Female Athletes to Watch for in 2012.
And why stop there?
Now that we have glanced into the future to see what female athletes we can expect to break out, it is now time to avert our attention to the WAGs of sports.
The women on this list are set to explode in the upcoming year. Some of them are with honey badgers, future MVPs, first round draft picks and Olympic gold medal hopefuls.
This is not your ordinary WAG list. Enjoy.
DeMarco Murray was born to play in the NFL. The dude is built like a rock climbing wall and has tons of speed.
He could outrun time if he needed to.
Okay, no one can outrun time but you get my point. His girlfriend, Karolyne Long, a junior softball player from the University of Oklahoma, could probably come close to beating him in a race.
But only because he lets her win.
There are only 8,321 websites proclaiming Matt Barkley as a top five NFL draft pick next year, so the safe bet would be to assume he is taken before the Green Bay Packers are on the board.
Being the girlfriend of an NFL rookie QB has its benefits, too. Brittany Langdon is currently playing soccer at Seattle Pacific University but should graduate after her man's first full season.
If they stay together, get ready. These two have the potential of being the next Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush of the NFL.
At what point in time does cute become annoying? Where is that imaginary line that some women walk along between the two?
Jordana Lenz, at first glance, is as cute as a box of puppies in a field of cotton during Christmas.
But then she begins to speak and, well, you suddenly remember you have to fix the broken toilet seat in your bathroom.
Was there anyone who did not consider Andrew Luck the Heisman winner for 2011? Or is there anyone left that still does not think this guy will be the top draft pick in the NFL draft next year?
I do. I apologize for this outburst, but Andrew Luck is not as good as people say he is, especially now that he lost the Heisman—again.
He will go high in the draft, probably No. 1, but chances are he will not be as successful as Matt Barkley.
This is coming from a non-USC fan.
It is not because we hate Kristin Cavallari, but we are done hearing about her life. I mean, enough is enough, Kristin.
But now that she is engaged to Jay Cutler, we will be talking about her more and more over the next year.
Lane Kiffin is finally out of the probationary period. It is now time for USC to compete for a national championship.
He can now go back to his old ways of running his mouth before and after the games, just like he did in Tennessee.
Welcome back to competition, Lane.
Did you really expect to see a list of WAGs and not see Kim Kardashian?
She gets on my nerves worse than someone who talks on the phone at the movies. The only difference is that her looks keep most of us intrigued longer than we should be.
Bianca Kajlich and Landon Donovan are no longer a married couple, but that does not change the fact she will be back in 2012.
After her amazing appearance in 30 Minutes or Less this year, we saw what she looks like topless.
Now we hope to see her back in the arms of another athlete in 2012.
Eric Decker was as unknown to NFL fans outside of Denver as floss is to Great Britain.
The dude was a flat-out nobody before the season began. But after a few big games and some amazing catches, he has become the No. 1 wideout in Denver playing alongside Tim Tebow.
Jessie James will one day be a star. She is a country singer but also a piece of the Denver Broncos family, as of now.
And we all know what a media frenzy it is in Tebow's Denver right now.
By the way, who is this Tim Tebow guy?
There are not too many people in this world that can say they are dating a Honey Badger. In fact, there is only one person that can claim that—Sydni Paige Russell.
Sydni is currently in a relationship with the meanest, baddest, hardest-hitting LSU Tiger of the past 10 years—Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu.
In case you missed it, this dude is going to be in the Heisman hunt for 2012 and 2013.
Saeko Darvish, meet the people of America. People of America, meet Saeko Darvish, Yu Darvish's ex-wife.
Yu Darvish might be heading to America to pitch for a major league team. We should find out in the next few weeks which one, but we already know who will end up with him.
Cough, cough, Yankees.
Saeko might chase him down here, or at least that is what we hope happens. This Japanese beauty could make a killing modeling in America.
I started to watch Baseball Wives on VH1. There is this one tall, beautiful woman that usually stands in the background, usually while Anna Benson runs her mouth, and does not say too much—Brooke Villone.
She is the most out-of-place WAG on the show. Maybe the next time they do a show like this, they will not include women that belong on a runway, not a WAG house.
We rarely get to include female athletes on a list of WAGs, but in Maria Kirilenko's case, she deserves it.
She has been openly dating Alexander Ovechkin of the NHL.
This could be the couple of 2012 now that they are both successful stars in their sports. When is the wedding already?
Should Kelsi Reich and David Nelson get their own reality show? I would vote yes, only because it gives us more reasons to look at Kelsi.
The rumors for a reality show between the two of them is not far off.
David Nelson plays for the Buffalo Bills, but Kelsi Reich cheers for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and is a fan of her Cowboys.
Following through on a promise he made to her, he ran over to her and handed the football to her during a game after he scored a touchdown.
I am ready for the show.
In 2011, Claudine Keane's husband, Robbie Keane, made a move to L.A. to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS.
When WAGs move to L.A., it usually turns into a breakout year for them.
She has already been featured in several WAG posts this past year, so 2012 should wind up being the year of the Keanes.
Shannon James once posed for Playboy. She was Miss May 2007, and she is now dating Philadelphia Phillies star Hunter Pence.
The life of a MLB player has to be great when you can pull former Playmates only moments after being traded to a city.
That is pure awesome-ness.
How does a Taoist become involved with a supermodel?
For those of you playing at home, C.J. Wilson is a Taoist and lives his life completely by the rules of the religion.
Dominique Piek, well, she is a major hot trophy wife that is just looking for a future husband.
And you thought your old lady was crazy.
This is what happens when strippers become WAGs. Can they change who they are? Not so much.
So the relationship between Brad Richards and Olivia Munn may or may not have existed, ever. But it does give us a glimpse of what she would look like as a WAG.
We would love to have her and by the end of 2012, we probably will.
