Chris Harris' wife Leah Harris is the model housewife. She's also expecting a child, as she was sporting a small bump in an August interview with her and her player wife friends. The three wives of Chris Harris, Steve Johnson, and Chris Clark sat around the kitchen and talked about their extremely busy days taking care of kids and running errands. They said the players devote all and any time to the game of football-- upwards of 12 hours. It sounds like a pretty raw deal for the wives, but they've got each other to hang out with, and Leah is definitely tight with a few of them. The three of the Broncos wives were all hanging out and making desserts around the kitchen, laughing and telling jokes.
Chris and wife Leah were apparently college sweethearts. They have a son, but Leah says they both get up before him in order to pray and get the day going. The two of them both went to Kansas University, and Leah describes herself as "aggressive" when it comes to watching Chris play. Unlike her friends, she gets amped up and competitive, telling him to go get'em and whatnot. I suppose that's sort of ideal for what you'd want from your wife if you were a pro footballer. A lot of them would certainly not be into football if their husbands weren't in the sport, and Leah's friends are certainly not as aggressive as she is.
"He watches the First Take, that's the first thing he does - well, he gives me a hug and a kiss, and he sits down and I leave him alone." That's Leah's description of their time together. Hey, that's what they signed up for, I guess. Still, sounds pretty rugged. I guess Leah looks forward to the offseason?

Is Demaryius Thomas' girlfriend Brittany Lohberg?
I mean, the woman looks about fifteen years old, but she is in fact a junior in college. This whole rumor began when TerezOwens.com got a tip and ran with it. Whether or not they're together (or if he even knows her, since he doesn't follow her on Twitter), Brittany is "quite smitten" over Demaryius. Something tells me this "relationship" won't last long, but that's just the little devil on my shoulder, and he's been wrong more than once. Brittany is now playing in the big girl league and maybe she's ready for pro level boyfriend-seeking.
Brittany is a Denver girl but she goes to the University of South Florida, and that's where the source that tapped TerezOwens.com. I wonder if Brittany will be able to figure out who it was? Got to be careful who you tell your secrets to unless, of course, she wanted to be known as Demaryius Thomas' girlfriend. In that case, she is doing a great job. Brittany is into things on Pinterest, but her one of her main interests is all things weddings. Alarm bells sounding for freewheeling professional athletes! She's pinned over 100 different pages having to do with weddings, and yet she's only a junior in college. Could Brittany have some big plans in the works? I wonder what Demaryius thinks of her interests?
There was something pretty cool that Demaryius' girlfriend Brittany pinned up on her account. It's the $5 bill saving plan, and she said of it:
"Every time you find yourself with a five-dollar bill in your possession, you set it aside instead of spending it. At the end of the year, you use the money you've saved for either a big purchase or to do something you wouldn't normally spend the money to do. Love this. I'm doing this 2013."
I like it too, though I am definitely not doing it because I'd go broke, but I wonder if she pulled it off last year. What was she doing for work as a sophomore at USF? How was she affording to keep every five-dollar bill that came into her possession? I'll bet you five bucks she wasn't able to keep it up for the whole year.

Champ Bailey's wife Jessica Herrera Bailey just married the Pro-Bowling guy a few days ago. The wedding was reported on by TMZ and featured cool little Patron lemonade drink thingys. The ceremony looked pretty classy. There was a beach and some kind of domed structure with the customary miles of garish white cloth strung up all over it. In America, wedding day aesthetics vaguely resemble ancient Greek aesthetics.
The thing that amazes me most about Champ Bailey are insane pre-draft measurables. Pre-draft measurables are the athletic tests they give athletes upon entering the NFL draft process. It's like the SAT's for athletic ability. They measure a variety of running speeds and jumping ability. Champ Bailey ran 40 meters in 4.28 seconds, and his vertical leap was measured at 45 inches. That's almost four feet, people. He's like an Olympic caliber athlete. There's only been seven people in the history of measuring the 40m that have run it faster, and there's only been one guy to jump higher than Champ (some dude who only lasted a season named Gerald Sensabaugh). So basically what I'm telling you is that Champ Bailey is one of the top 5 most gifted athletes the NFL has ever seen. All things being equal, I think if Jim Brown and Bo Jackson had come up in the same time and context as Champ, they'd probably beat him in overall athletic godliness, but upon entering the NFL draft, scouts were freaking out about his potential.
And match their expectations he did. Champ was was 12-time Pro Bowler. I think his most impressive year was the 2005-2006 season when he grabbed 10 interceptions, didn't give up one touchdown all year, and had 73 tackles. He was a unanimous choice for the Pro-Bowl that year along with two other players. The year before that, Champ had 8 interceptions and 59 tackles, and the year after only 3 but with 71 tackles. I've always wondered if having a lot of tackles was a good thing because it meant someone had received the ball, but no- it's a good thing. Why did the Redskins trade the guy back in 2003?
