With most professional athletes I'd trade places with them in a heartbeat. Don't we all strive to have what professional athletes have - money, fame and hot girls (and yes, Jakub Blaszczykowski's wife Agata Gołaszewska qualifies for sure on the last part). I mean, here I am writing for a gossip blog, what some might call smut, covering the same people I'd trade places with no questions asked. Yet to any rule, there's always an exception, and this time it's Jakub Blaszczykowski, despite being captain of the Polish national team and having a stunning wife Agata Golaszewska. For those not familiar with Jakub's back story I'll get you caught up without dwelling on it too long. When Jakub was young he witnessed something no child should ever witness. At the age of 10 Jakub's father stabbed his wife (Jakub's mother) to death. After this tragic event Jakub was raised by his grandmother. For those who have ever watched Jakub play he'll always look up towards his mom during his goal celebrations.
While Jakub's youth was marred by tragedy he's done well to rebound. As we mentioned Jakub is captain of team Poland and plays for Borussia Dortmund of the German Bundesliga league. Jakub also did well for himself off the pitch by scoring Ms. Agata Golaszewska. Meeting when Agata was still in high school and Jakub a rising star the couple eventually became and item and were engaged in 2007. Three years later the couple married and now have one daughter, Oliwia. Jakub is rumored to be on the transfer market during the summer of 2013 so we could see Jakub and Agata on the move to a big market team for the 2013 season.

Let me get this out of the way now - Boston screwed Carl Crawford. Dude played with an elbow needing Tommy John last year and was their best player, busting his ass for the month they put him out their. Yes, he had a tough 2011 campaign with the Sox, but we all deserved to see what he was capable of doing (which is what he's doing now in Los Angeles). It just always felt dirty to turn a guy busting his ass while fighting injuries into the poster boy for the overpaid, entitled, apathetic players that submarined the Sox 2012 season. Crawford did not deserve that distinction, and his time in Boston was marred with the lowest period of his professional career.
Maybe that's why this new rumor makes so much sense, that Carl Crawford's girlfriend is Evelyn Lozada. Yes, the same Evelyn Lozada who's marriage to former NFL wideout Chad Ochocinco lasted less time than the Kim Kardashian- Kris Humphries marriage. But let's think about it for a second. Both Crawford and Lozada are coming off what was likely the most difficult period of their lives - Crawford professionally, Lozada personally. Both desperately wanted a fresh start and a chance to prove that they could rebound from the lows they had recently experienced. I can imagine that a climb back to the top would be easier to trek through by experiencing it with the person you're dating.
Lozada and Crawford were rumored to have met up and possibly started dating in late April when the Dodgers were in New York to play the Mets. Sites HipHopHollywood, and TerezOwens seemed to have the scoop first, citing unquote, unnamed "close to the source," accounts and "eyewitnesses." There has been no confirmation from either party, or any pictures of them together. As unabashed Carl Crawford fans on this site, we'll keep a close eye on this one as it progresses.

Patrick Sharp is apparently a handsome man. So handsome in fact that he was the cover boy for Chicago magazine's "50 Most Beautiful Chicagoans" issue in 2011. Sharp, who has been in Chicago since 2006, is a popular player in the city, so the world wanted to know, who is Patrick Sharp's wife?
Well, in that same issue of Chicago, we learned more about Patrick Sharp's wife Abby Sharp. Patrick and Abby met while he was playing college hockey at Vermont, and were married in Rhode Island in the summer of 2010. The couple had their first child, daughter Madelyn Grace, in December of 2011. Abby went into labor during a game in which Sharp scored an overtime winner against the Islanders. Sharp described his postgame call to Abby to the Chicago Sun Times,
"I called my wife after the game and was expecting to hear congratulations, nice goal or good game or something. The first thing she said was, 'I think I'm having the baby tonight.' I forgot about hockey pretty quick."
Sharp, who's described as a model father, seems to be one of the good guys. In a behind the scenes article in his 50 Most Beautiful Chicagoans, he explains how Abby help keeps him grounded, After being asked how he's stayed out of trouble, Sharp states:
I certainly had my time in college. I think anyone who’s been to university—or especially the University of Vermont—knows how to have some fun, and I did. But [my wife, Abby, has] been with me for ten years now, and we’ve been through a lot. It was a great weekend getting married, and things have been awesome ever since.
In the same article, when later asked about getting too full of himself being officially declared beautiful, he knows Abby will keep him in check.
She laughs and shakes her head. She says that people don’t know the real Patrick. She always says, “If people actually met you, you wouldn’t be getting all this kind of stuff.” She’s proud of it—I guess.
