We always struggle with how to title posts like this one. Is it about Jay Williams' girlfriend Charissa Thompson, or is this Charissa Thompson's boyfriend Jay Williams? Either way, the love birds would seem to compete head to head in the sports broadcasting arts, and while all of Charissa Thompson's career aspirations may have com true, this definitely isn't what Mr. Williams planned. As you may or may not know, Jay suffered some pretty jarring injuries back in 2003 when he crashed a motorcycle into a streetlight and cried out for mercy from the gods of career-ending injuries. They did not heed his calls, and he was dropped from every team that he tried to play on afterwards.

Charissa Thompson's boyfriend's once promising career lasted just 75 games. He was drafted second overall at the age of 21, and he averaged close to 10 points per game his rookie season. The injuries he sustained were just the right combination to put him on the screwed-for-life list of professional basketball players. He and Greg Oden have some things in common. Anyway, Jay Williams is now kicking it with his new girlfriend Charissa Thompson, who is known for looking good in front of a camera and being into sports. Fox Sports knows what people like. She graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2004 and became the hot chick who the broadcasters on NFL On Fox check in with on the field. I'm pretty sure she's most known for reporting on what was going on during the game on the sidelines and in the huddle etc. There's actually a Youtube compilation of her "check-ins" from games. I guess some obsessive fan has way too much time on their hands. It has basically no value unless you just really like watching Charissa Thompson talk about sideline activity. Maybe it was Jay Williams who put the Youtube clip together.

Now Jay Williams girlfriend has probably been hit on by dozens of NFL players, and lucky for Jay, it may be part of her contract that she can't date any of them. I've always wondered how often pro players hit on the hot women who interview them. My estimation is that it is very, very frequent. I'm going to assume dating Jay is a pretty solid fit since they both have pretty much the same job. Currently, Williams' girlfriend Charissa has been recruited to talk about celebrity gossip with the beautiful-woman-engulfing Mario Lopez. So are they going to keep the same "checking in" format and have her report live from the streets of Beverly Hills and update people with injuries to actors and famous people?

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.

My wife rarely watches sports.

However, one fateful evening, I managed to slip an NBA on TNT game by her without much complaint. After another game where Greg Popovich made fun of Craig Sager, my wife chimed up: "Look at that guy's outfit. Does Craig Sager have a wife?"

Oh, Mrs. PlayerWives.com, Craig Sager certainly does have a wife. And Craig Sager, crazy wardrobes and all has done quite well for himself

Meet Craig Sager's wife Stacy Sager. Stacy Sager is a former Luvabulls Chicago Bulls dancer, that the boldly dressed sideline reported clearly wooed in one of his many games. Both Craig and Stacy Sager have been quick to point out that Craig's crazy suits are nothing more than his "game uniforms." Craig enjoys letting his young daughter pick out his ties, although she has a proclivity towards pink and purples.

Craig and Stacy Sager own and operate Jocks and Jills Sports Grill in Atlanta. Craig proposed to Stacy at the 2000 World Series, where she obviously accepted. The couple, including their two children, Riley and Ryan Sager, live in Braselton, Georgia together. Craig has three children from his first marriage, most notably, Craig Sager Jr was a wide receiver at the University of Georgia.
