UPDATE 03/10/2014: Pretend you’re Blake Bortles girlfriend Lindsey Duke for a moment.
You’re life has been flipped upside down. NFL GM’s are asking your boyfriend if you’ll be coming to dinner during the scouting combine, the internet has fallen in love with you, and you’re two months away from being the girlfriend of a guy getting an 8-figure guaranteed payday. Kind of a lot to digest.
Fortunately for Lindsey Duke, fate was on her side during a recent family vacation where she met someone who’s been through it: Matthew Stafford’s girlfriend Kelly Hall. The two spent time together, posting pictures, and looking pretty much like you’d expect NFL quarterback girlfriends to look like. Hall tweeted good luck to Bortles and Duke after the trip, and with that, the internet pretty much collapsed on itself.
Thank you to Kelly Hall and Lindsey Duke. Just thank you.
Imagine if Brent Musberger happened to see Blake Bortles’ girlfriend Lindsey Duke instead of Katherine Webb.
After a stellar season at UCF, Bortles is very much in contention to be drafted at #1 overall, and already has the arm candy that an NFL quarterback may typically get. Blake Bortles girlfriend Lindsey Duke will look just fine in the green room this spring, waiting for Roger Goodell to call his name. Duke, a model who has graced the cover of aXis Magazine, is a huge and avid supporter of her boyfriends career with frequent tweets of support and nerve racking angst.
Duke has done an amazing job in promoting her brand, and may have the ability to leapfrog Bortles in terms of popularity. In a recent New York Daily News article, Bortles college coach understands it:
When ESPN reporter Gene Wojciechowski told UCF coach George O’Leary that a Google search of his quarterback resulted in about 224,000 hits and a search of the QB’s girlfriend led to over six million, the coach responded by saying, “I would hope as a head coach that the numbers would be reversed, but obviously you haven’t seen his girlfriend. She deserves six million Googles.”
While her Google results aren’t much a surprise to O’Leary, they’re not much a surprise to anyone who happens to follow her on Twitter and Instagram. Duke is never shy to post pictures, including the frequent bikini shot. With the very distinct possibility of replacing Matt Schaub in Houston, we’ll officially have a QB wife battle with Matt Schaub’s wife Laurie Schaub.
