Before we talk about the new NESN Sideline reporter Sarah Davis' boyfriend, we have to get something out of the way. Replacing Jenny Dell is going to be hard.
When NESN lost Heidi Watney to national network deals, Boston native Jenny Dell stepped right in and immediately hit with the fans. Whether it was the looks, the ease of rapport with Don Orsillo & Jerry Remy, the quality of her reports, or,.. let's face it, the looks, fans fell in love. In the wake of Dell's relationship with Will Middlebrooks that eventually caused a split between NESN to ultimately replace Dell, fans have wondered who would take the role.
Enter Toronto reporter Sarah Davis. Sarah Davis was most recently working for Rogerst Sportsnet, a national network, where she hosted Soccer Central and Fox Soccer News, as well as UFC Pre-Fight shows. In a lineage of Tina Cervasio to Heidi Watney to Jenny Dell, NESN has a certain look they want from their sideline reporters and Sarah Davis fits right in. The other three proved to be excellent field reporters as well, which only time can tell with Davis. From her first day on NESN today at spring training, she should do just fine.
Back to why you're here. Who is Sarah Davis' boyfriend? We've done our research and found very, very little. We've heard that Davis is engaged, but in even the most current photos we found show nothing on the left ring finger. After extended research, we found that Sarah Davis' boyfriend may by Timothy Paton, a real estate broker in Toronto, though the evidence is speculative at best (running a 10K together in the same time, attending an event as one another's "date," following/retweeting/tweeing one another). In the town that loves their baseball team, and almost as much their sideline reporter, if a boyfriend makes the trip to Boston, the papers will let us know soon enough.

Sara Walsh is an up and coming talent with ESPN. As one of the ESPN's options to replace the recently departed female anchors including Erin Andrews, Charissa Thompson and Michelle Beadle among others, Sara Walsh has seen a nice push in recent months. With the recent push in public visibility, we figured it was time to learn more about Sara Walsh's husband Matt Buschmann.
Matt Buschmann is currently pitching in the Oakland farm system, but was a pitcher at Vanderbilt with Rays ace, David Price. While Price and Buschmann were at Vandy, Sara Walsh was working for WKRN in Nashville. Walsh would often interview the teammates, making a lasting impression on both pitchers. During the 2012 season, Walsh interviewed the soon-to-be Cy Young Price on SportsCenter. Price told her that Buschmann said hello, causing Walsh to immediately reply, "Oh I love Matt Buschmann."
Price insisted that Buschmann contact her via Twitter, the things took off from there. The couple began dating shortly after the 2012 season, and have been together since. In January, 2014, the two tied the knot in Sarasota, Florida in a ceremony presided over by Walsh's former WKRN Co-Worker and Anchor, John Dwyer. David Price also stood up for Buschmann, serving as one of his groomsmen.
Besides anchoring SportsCenter, Sara Walsh can also be seen during plenty of broadcasts during the NFL season. She is the most watchable element of Fantasy Football Now. Walsh is originally from Tampa Bay, before going on to play soccer for the University of North Florida (where she still holds the school record for goals in one game).

In the evolution of the professional athlete wife and girlfriend, Curt Schilling's wife Shonda Schilling has played a pivotal role in advancing their status. From arm candy and simple groupies, Schilling helped evolve the WAG into independent women who wield their influence to help make a difference.
In 2001, Shonda was diagnosed with Stage 2 Malignant Melanoma. After multiple surgeries and dozens of scars, Shonda survived, but realized she could help to promote the dangers of the disease. After going on a media spree including national TV and print interview, Shonda invited Good Morning America into the OR during her final surgery. Shortly after beating the disease, Shonda became a spokeswoman for the American Academy of Dermatology.
After overwhelming positive responses from others having survived, Shonda launched the Shade Foundation of America. Children's Skin Care Education & Prevention. Shonda has traveled the country promoting skin care protection, and efforts to prevent sun related diseases. As part of her awareness, Shonda has run in every Boston Marathon since 2005, promoting the Shade Foundation.
In addition to Shade, Shonda Schilling has helped to raise awareness for the ALS Foundation, as well as Aspergers Syndrome. One of Curt and Shonda's sons, Grants, has this condition, causing Shonda to dive into the effort. The Schillings were married in 1992 and have four children, Grant, Gehrig, Gabriella, and Garrison. While Schilling joined the Red Sox late in his career, the family is happy in the greater Boston area, residing there today.
Shonda's experience with battling cancer, as well as her dedication to helping others is sure to come in handy. Through an ESPN statement on February 5, 2014, Schilling announced he has been diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer. Ever the warrior on the field, the Schilling family will no doubt give the disease one hell of a fight. While saying thoughts and prayers is often overused, given everything the Schillings have already been through and everything they've already given back, our thoughts and prayers are with them.
