Robert Turbin's girlfriend Devin gave some random guy an amazing Christmas present. If you haven't heard this story yet, it really is awesome. There's a video below that documents the entire situation, but in case you'd rather read about it and hear what we have to say about it, please proceed.

Essentially, Turbin's girlfriend Devin has not been captured on camera and has not been completely identified. She's like the yeti or sasquatch of cool and generous NFL girlfriends. She ran into this guy at a Seahawks game who was wearing a Seahawks jacket, and she asked to put on his jacket so she could snap a picture of herself to send to her boyfriend. The guy asked why, and she told him her boyfriend is Robert Turbin. Turbin himself is a solid running back and looks like a bodybuilder. Seriously, have you guys seen the arms on this dude? He's a freak! Anyway, the guy said sure and that it'd be great if he could get something autographed by a player from the game. She agreed, gave him a number to call after the game was over, but his phone died. Long story short, this Devin apparently told Robert what happened, and he had the entire team sign a Seahawks helmet and shipped it to him. Absolutely awesome Christmas present.

Now, I don't know how these types of things work in the Seahawks organization. For all I know, the organization designated a time when the entire team gets together and signs dozens of helmets for gift-giving purposes. If this is the scenario (and I believe it is based on what I know about professional sports organizations) I still find this to be a great story. Think about it-- how many helmets do you think they have the team sign? I'd imagine the upper limit is 200 helmets. Okay, so you've got 200 helmets for anyone in the organization to give as presents, but that's almost nothing when you think about how many actual people work for the Seahawks. That's like 1 helmet per person, and I really don't believe they'd have the players sign 200 helmets anyway. Any way you slice it, this helmet is a freaking amazing gift. And it's all thanks to Robert Turbin and his awesome girlfriend Devin.

There are some of you out there that might have got a crush on Michele Tafoya since she's a great sportscaster, but Michele Tafoya's husband Mark Vandersall has some bad news for ya - as she's been his wife since the year 2000. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. There's plenty of fish in the sea, and you don't need a pro sportscaster as a spouse; they're always gone and they don't want to talk about sports with you like you think they might. They want to veg out after a day at the office. Okay, I'm not entirely certain that's true, but it sounds like it'd be kind of accurate doesn't it?

Michele Tafoya and her husband Mark Vandersall have had two kids after Michele had four miscarriages. She was forty when she got pregnant and had her first kid in 2005. Michele's been quite open about having struggled with anorexia when she was a teenager. She told iVillage that she'd felt a lot of pressure as a teenager growing up in Manhattan Beach, California where "all the cute popular girls wore great bikinis and tight jeans." She said she wound up being 5'5" and weighing 80 pounds. She certainly seems to have a handle on it now, but then again she's 50 years old so I would hope so. She says of anorexia that lack self-esteem and being a type-A personality and being around beautiful people in California was the perfect storm for becoming an anorexic. Beautiful people in California, eh? Well, I've never been there but all this talk of bikinis and tight jeans is making me hungry!

Mark Vandersall keeps a pretty tight Twitter page with plenty of sightings from his wife Michele Tafoya. There's plenty of shots of their children, and they included a picture of putting the star on their Christmas tree. Most of the posts revolve around sports. I sense that Michele and Mark are both raging sports nuts. You kind of have to be to be a sportscaster, right? Are there sportscasters that don't like sports? I'm sure there's financial advisors that don't like sports, but Mark Vandersall is not one of them.

Kyle Arrington's Wife Vashonda Arrington

Kyle Arrington's wife Vashonda Arrington just had a baby a couple weeks ago. It was still 2014 when the child was delivered, but it may have even been the last few hours of the year. There was a picture on Twitter posted by the New England Patriots on December 31 of them in the delivery room. Prior to that, there were plenty of pictures taken of Kyle and his pregnant wife Vashonda. One of them included Vashonda in a bra and Kyle without his shirt on. I don't understand why this is done at all, but it's a timeless photographing tradition to have both parties take their shirts off in order to show an intimate connection between the husband and pregnant wife. Some pregnancy photo shoots (not Kyle and Vashonda's) take it a step further and have the couple get naked. I have no comment on that.

Back to Kyle Arrington's wife Vashonda Arrington! Vashonda went to high school with Kyle but didn't talk to him much at all. They only really started to hang out after they both graduated from college in 2008 and were kicking it with the same group of friends. Kyle asked Vashonda out on a date in 2010 and went to see some movie called "From Paris With Love" and apparently kept their ticket stubs according to the Washington Post. The movie got some pretty bad reviews, but it's cute that they kept the stubs.

When Kyle proposed to Vashonda in October of 2010, Vashonda first asked him if he'd gotten her father's blessing before agreeing. That's kind of a buzzkill isn't it? Picturing this kind of proposal, especially since it was just the two of them hanging out in Kyle's apartment in Boston, is pretty funny to me. They're watching sports, Kyle hits the mute button, finishes up a can of Sprite, puts it on the coaster, clears his throat as he gets up from the couch, kneels down, and says "will you marry me" while the Celtics are still running around on flickering television in the background. I've actually never seen or heard of the "did you get my dad's blessing" response before. It makes perfect sense as a response, but I've just never seen it. Anyway, they got hitched and went on a honeymoon to St. Lucia. Now they've got a couple of kids and a chance at a Super Bowl ring. Life is grand (provided you have clearance from the proper paternal authorities).
