JJ Watt's Girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki


JJ Watt's girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki is now off of the Ryan Kerrigan Train and looks to be on the Watt Express. We posted back in December about Caroline and Kerrigan being seen together and going out, but now it seems that is over. Kerrigan was apparently saying the two were just friends, but that's a little tough to believe. I think Kerrigan or Woz probably just didn't want to get into a real relationship. It was likely Woz who put the brakes on, feeling like she wasn't ready after her breakup with Rory McIlroy.

We talked about this only a few months ago so I won't harp on it, but McIlroy dumped JJ Watt's girlfriend Caroline Woznicacki in brutal fashion-- breaking off their engagement via a call on the telephone that took less than three minutes. McIlroy then won a bunch of golfing tournaments. Anyway that's deader than dead at this point. I wonder now if Rory showed up at Caroline's door and asked her to give him a second chance, would she take him back? My guess is she would not, and now she could call her rumored boyfriend JJ Watt to smash through a wall and rescue her from such scenes. This dude is an absolute monster-- a 6'5" 290 pound wrecking ball who had 20.5 sacks last year and 20.5 sacks in 2012 (you read that correctly). Rumors started flying when the two showed up at the 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship together, where JJ's alma mater Wisconsin took on Duke. They've since been photographed together, but nothing is officially official yet. I'm just waiting on Caroline or JJ to post a picture of themselves together on their social media accounts to make it, you know, social media-official. I certainly think there's something to that when someone posts a picture of themselves with the person they're dating. It's like saying "this is now a viable chapter in my life."

The Woz has been busy recently. She apparently played Barack Obama in tennis (there was a picture of them hugging at the court with rackets). She also met Justin Bieber, visited the white house, did some modeling shoots, and went to Indonesia. I think she looks a lot like Heidi Klum. She's a super catch.

Milos Raonic's Girlfriend Danielle Knudson


I recently watched a short video posted by TMZ of a paparazzi type guy legitimately holding the attention of Milos Raonic's girlfriend Danielle Knudson for almost two minutes. I'm guessing that is not an easy thing to do as a paparazzi because you're already seen as a kind of scab, even though famous people seem to have a love/hate relationship with this kind of attention. To top it off, Danielle was with a very close girlfriend of hers, which probably made the guy more nervous about asking her questions and talking to her about how she was mentioned by Justin Bieber.

The Justin Bieber thing was apparently big for her. What happened was young Biebs posted a picture Instagram of her that he'd taken outside a store and said "Who is this Guess model? She's stunning." Well, young Biebs, that's Milos Raonic's girlfriend Danielle Knudson, and yes she is stunning. There's a reason she's a top model. It's because she's really nice to look at. I guess if you're a champ like Milos (currently ranked 6th in the world) you are in the same league as ladies like this. Danielle also seems to have a good head on her shoulders. I like her post about "Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them."

Just like Mr. Raonic, Danielle's life is full of travel and cool activities. She gets to do crazy stuff all the time like "ice therapy," in which you are put in a kind of iron lung cylinder, and liquid nitrogen is made to chill your body (or something). I saw a picture of her doing it, and she tagged it as "cryotherapy." See, nobody knows what that is, but hot models who travel around the world get to try it out. Milos and Danielle also got to feed kangaroos at a kangaroo sanctuary.

Ryan Kerrigan's Girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki


Welcome back to the world of World's Best Genetically Engineered Sports Couples! Ryan Kerrigan's girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki is all kinds of awesome. We are talking about a tennis powerhouse now. She spent 67 straight weeks ranked the #1 tennis player in the world. That is amazing. And she's really good looking. Man, imagine dating the best women's tennis player in the world. That'd be pretty intimidating unless you yourself had some substantial sporting skill of your own. Fortunately, Ryan Kerrigan is a pretty decent linebacker. I think he looks sort of like a buffed up version of Seth MacFarlane. Anyway, back to Caroline...

Ryan's girlfriend Caroline was apparently the second highest paid woman athlete in the world in 2011. Bringing home the bacon; she's one of the most marketable female athletes as well. I guess she's pretty big in Europe (you know, where people actually play tennis). I dig the sport myself, and I wish there were a new crop of Americans to challenge the internationals. Well, we can't talk about Caroline without mentioning her intense marriage shutdown by another very famous athlete, Irish golfing wizard Rory McIlroy. Basically what happened is they started dating in 2011, and they got engaged in January of 2014. A few months later, Rory called her on the telephone and called the whole thing off. The phone call reportedly took less than three minutes. McIlroy then proceeded to play out completely of his mind: winning The Open Championship, the Bridgestone Invitational, the PGA Championship, and the Ryder Cup. I'm not sure what the takeaway from this is. Dump your fiance in a jerky fashion and you will dominate in your field or profession?

She doesn't have to worry about nasty old Rory and more now. Ryan and girlfriend Caroline have been spotted all over town, and they most recently attended a charity event where photographers/papa razzi caught a few shots of them at a table, grinning from ear to ear.
