Stuart Scott's Girlfriend Kristin Spodobalski

Stuart Scott is the face of ESPN, and Stuart Scott's girlfriend Kristin Spodobalski is fully appreciative of his tremendous talent for words and getting across a feeling. Never has this been more apparent than during his speech at the 2014 ESPY awards show where Scott was awarded the Jimmy V Perseverance Award.

During Scott's five minute speech, he goes out of his way to thank his girlfriend, Kristin Spodobalski. As so many people affected in some way by cancer have seen, those brave and dedicated family members are the will of the patient. They drive the fight against the disease. As Scott so vividly paints, the sight of Kristin sleeping on a miserable cot next to his bed reminded him what he was fighting for. He thought of the fear that so many parents have, seeing his daughters and "the best thing [he's] ever done Taylor and Sydni," grow up without a father. Stuart Scott is blessed with a professional drive that few can rival, yet his professional success seems to have little motivation in comparison to taking care of his family and girlfriend.

Stuart Scott was previously married to Kimberley Scott, the mother to his two daughters, though the marriage ended in 2010. Shortly after their marriage ended, Scott was linked to Sandi Williams, though that appears to have ended later that year. Scott and Spoodobalski have been dating since 2013, shortly after she obtained a Master's degree from St. Joseph's University.

Part of what makes Stuart Scott having cancer so poignant is that a very large population of the United States feels a kind of connection to him through familiarity. We have all become familiar with not only him but his style. When it comes to sports, Stuart will talks forever. Players like him, and they're not pretending or being nice because they think they have to be. I have seen countless interviews and segments where he's interacting with a player and goofing around, and they pick up on that; it puts them at ease.

We wish Stuart Scott all the best in his continued fight against cancer. If his determination and drive are any indication, we fully expect to be reading about his second victory over the disease in the months to come.

Alright, let's take ourselves a little break from the mayhem of self-obsessed models who can't stop taking the same picture of themselves and their finely tuned body parts for a second. It's time for a little session of under-par golf chicks. That's right, folks, let's rev up those curious peepers and get ready to leer at Brian Harman's girlfriend Kelly Van Slyke.

This is exactly the type of chick who you guys should be digging because she, you know, does something. She has a job and contributes stuff to the world. She's a.....radiation therapist. So yeah: she blasts people with radiation. Now, I admit, that doesn't sound so nice, but I assure you radiation has its uses-- such as mass destruction. But no, wait, she's not hurting anybody. She's just a fan of blasting radiation at people in order to assuage their troubles. Okay, so I have no idea what radiation therapy is. I looked it up and it's a form of oncology like I thought. Brutal. Well, she's a beautiful woman, and that always helps male patients. She should lie about being engaged to Brian and let the patients dream a little dream.

Brian Harman irradiates the golf lynx. Two days ago he took the top spot at the John Deere Classic and netting himself some cash and a spot at the British Open. I watched some of the highlights of his performance, including his birdie shot on the 9th hole. I'll tell you what I think is oddly therapeutic-- the ambient background noise you hear during a player's putt. The silence in golf is soothing because it gets slowly replaced with excitement and whoops as the golfball nears its mark. In the case of the 9th hole, he indeed hit the shot. Spend another few thousand on the upcoming wedding, Brian. Kelly is pumped.

Grab your Miller Lites and throw on some Kid Rock! It's NASCAR time! The sounds of the engines stir something deep within....No, it's not a hidden wish that the Union and Southern States had split apart into two separate nations, and it's not the hidden wish to see at least one crash on the track. It's the desire to see Brad Keselowski's girlfriend Paige White on this website! Got a little meta there for ya'.

Even though Formula 1 is superior to NASCAR in every way, they're having an off-year right now since Team Mercedes exploited an engineering innovation and left every other team in the dust, so I'll indulge the NASCAR folks. Brad's been having a pretty hot year. He won the Quaker State 400, and everybody likes talking about how his champagne bottle opening technique need improvement. He shook his bottle, and it exploded into glass fragments and cut his pinky finger. That's some real news right there, folks! He's been dating Paige for about a year, and Paige herself is the daughter of a racecar driver named Louis White, although the internet doesn't seem to be able to tell me who he raced for. He may have just been a pitman. You know what a pitman is, right? You got it-- it's a person who studies armpits. Self-explanatory.

Jokes aside, Brad's currently ranked fourth in points behind Earnhardt Jr., Johnson, and Gordon, and he's already got two wins. The Pocono 400 was an interesting race because Brad got a trashbag stuck to his grill, and Earnhardt Jr. caught up to him and took the win away. Brad's also got a truck racing team that has yet to get a win. I wonder if there was one guy who actually pitched the idea of truck racing. "Listen, I think we could have a league of our own. Picture the exact same thing as the cars going around a circle, but now swap out those cars with trucks." Racing perfection achieved.
