10:09 AM ET 08.25 | ESPN sideline reporter and studio co-host Samantha Ponder used to be known as ESPN sideline reporter and studio co-host Samantha Steele. By marrying the Vikings' Christian Ponder, she also became known as a quarterback's wife. How did you and Christian meet? "He started sending me messages on Twitter. I'm like, "Why is this old Florida State quarterback messaging me? This is weird." He was always asking me random questions about living in Austin. Nothing creepy, but that was our original connection. Our version of Christian Mingle was on Twitter."

He must have game if he can get away with that shirt and bow tie.

I wonder if the NFL allowed an espen employee to have a picture like this available for viewing?


Greg Aiello is already preparing a statement.

Ponder made a "pass" and it was completed (finally). In addition, as you can see from the picture, Ponder way "out kicked" the coverage.

No, Weiner's texts were intercepted.

Christian Ponder the fashion connoisseur. He should have taken the time to ponder the choice of clothing.

August 25, 2013  12:34 PM ET

Weak.

That's nothing. Manti Te'o used it to find, oh yeah that's right. He didn't find anyone except a dude.

There isn't much "coverage" in that picture. Just the way I like it.

I would like to thank you for posting that.

BFD. Find an open receiver more than 15 yds downfield and then I'll be impressed.

Christian:

Bad news is that your ex-girlfriend Chelsea Manning is really mad.

Good news is, you are safe, He/She is doing time in Levenworth Penitentiary.
