Chalk this one up to making total sense.
When we first started reading rumors that Aaron Rodgers girlfriend is Olivia Munn, we thought it seemed too good to be true. The guy who is pretty much always the coolest guy in the room in Rodgers should be hooking up with the coolest chick in the room too. Who fits that bill better than Olivia Munn?
Reports from multiple sources (appears to be first reported by US Weekly) allege that the Packers QB and actress have been seeing each other for a little while. They were recently seen in public, dining with a group of friends at Nobu Malibu, where the two were acting the part of a couple with plenty of moments of "coupley" behavior including the occasional kiss. Obviously the details are a little thin, but it;s something to talk about.
The Packers QB and actress were recently seen presenting an award together at the Country Music Awards in April. Rodgers has previously been linked to actress Jessica Szohr, model Julie Henderson and singer Hilary Scott. Munn certainly climbs to the top of the notoriety list.

Julius Peppers' girlfriend Claudia Sampedro broke the internet today.
After a tumultuous offseason seeing himself released from the Chicago Bears, Peppers had to have needed a break. The new Green Bay Packer set off on what is clearly an amazing Mexican vacation made an appearance on Sampedro's well followed Instagram account (510,000 and counting) and the sports blogosphere immediately ran to talk about it.
Sampedro is a self described "glamour model, Actress, Musician, Supermodel," based in Miami. Originally from Havana, Cuba she's made a mark across multiple mediums. Now, despite the four different job titles she labeled on her Facebook page, she missed two. As she was seen in "Don't Stop the Party," by Pitbull, you can include a video vixen in her resume. If you browse through her Instagram account long enough, you'll also notice she's a fitness instructor as a a regular to posting workout videos for her half a million followers.
This isn't Sampedro's first foray into the NFL dating pool. Sampedro is reported to have previously dated Reggie Bush (who clearly has a thing for women who look like Kim Kardashian). With Miami in her blood, this relationship may have short legs,.... winters in Green Bay are hell. Good luck to these craz

American football legend, Vince Lombardi and wife Marie Lombardi will surely be looking down from the heavens to watch this Sunday's 2014 Super Bowl. As head coach of the Green Bay Packers during the 1960s, Lombardi led the team to three straight and five total league championships in seven years, including winning the first two Super Bowls ever. Lombardi, arguably the best and most successful coach in NFL history, never lost a season, compiling a regular season winning percentage of 73.8% (96-34-6), and 90% (9-1) in the postseason for an overall record of 105 wins, 35 losses, and 6 ties in the NFL. But before he was donned "The Pope", Vince met an important key to his success, none other than future wife Marie Planitz.
Apparently, Marie Lombardi served a critical role as an unofficial buffer between her determined and aggressive husband and the players he coached. When players had trouble with the coach, they went to Marie, who would get Lombardi to back off a little. It seems that she was such an essential part of the team's winning dynamic, that when she skipped out on a game in Texas, Vince became so bad-tempered that the players implored her never to do it again. During his reign in Green Bay, Vince was treated like a king, feared and adored by many in and out of football. But, Marie was known to be able to take Lombardi and give it to the coach like no one else, providing him with a release valve and governing his temper. Vince also didn't make life easy for his wife and two children by putting football first in his life. He even left his honeymoon early to get back to coaching.
But, Vince didn't always have it easy with Marie Lombardi either. After losing their first two children, Marie allegedly began drinking heavily. Suffering from chronic depression, multiple reports indicate there were several suicide attempts. As contentious as their relationship could be, it was obvious to anyone that knew them that Vince and Marie always had each others' backs and truly loved each other. Marie wasn't even a sports fan, but she learned enough about football so she could speak with Vince about plays and watch footage with him at home. It was special to Lombardi that she was always there, that she was always involved and knew the players and talked with them and knew their wives.
