Feels like we've been through this one before.
The last time we met Lance Moore's girlfriend Kasey Trione, we were operating on a hometown tip that she was dating Patriots breakout running back star Stevan Ridley. We learned pretty early after the post went up that while the two may have casually dated, they were in no way together. This time, however, we seem to be inundated with comments and information pointing the other way that Trione and Moore are actually together.
Kasey Trione seems to be a Lousiana girl through and through. Between her dabbling with Ridley from LSU, to moving on to Moore who plays in New Orleans, despite originally hailing from Northern California. In a shocking turn of events, Trione is a model. Trione has more Facebook friends than we've ever seen before (approaching 6,000), and is not afraid to post pictures of herself and her beau Moore for the world to see.
With the New Orleans finally out of the NFL's doghouse for the bounty scandal of 2012, the Saints are poised for a monster season. With more Moore in the spotlight, we're sure to see Trione around this season. And for that, Lance Moore, we all thank you.

With Eli Manning leading the Giants into the Super Bowl being hosted in Peyton Manning's hometown team's city, we know that the Manning family will be prominently featured during all the various game coverage. With that in mind, let's meet the Olivia Williams Manning, aka the matriarch of the Manning family; the wife of Archie Manning and the mother to Peyton, Eli and Cooper.
Archie Manning met the former Olivia Williams while attending Ole Miss together. Archie, obviously leading the Ole Miss football team followed every stereotype in the book, when he began dating Olivia, who also wound up being the homecoming queen her senior year. The two were married in May, 1971, shortly after Archie was drafted by the Saints with the 2nd pick in that year's draft.
Archie and Olivia had their first son Cooper in 1974, with Peyton and Eli born in 1976 and 1981 respectively.
Aside from being the only female in an entirely male and entirely football crazy household, Olivia has developed a name for herself as an incredibly devoted charitable figure. Olivia has worked tirelessly in the family's hometown of New Orleans, especially following Hurricane Katrina. Though the Manning's home in the Garden District escaped significant damage, Olivia joined a foundation, "Women of the Storm," which aided in the efforts to help rebuild the city.
Women of the Storm is a charity which states it's mission as, "to educate leaders and gain attention to the scale and breadth of devastation caused in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita by inviting all members of Congress and others who set the national agenda to visit New Orleans and coastal Louisiana to see first-hand the unprecedented damage, the challenges of rebuilding, the signs of progress, and how Louisiana’s recovery has a direct impact on every state in the nation."

The 2010 offseason was a big period of time for Darren Sproles. Not only did he sign a monster contract with the New Orleans Saints, but he also married the former Michel Hunt.
Michel is an accomplished athlete unto herself, competing at the national level in track events as a child and teen. Her track and field accomplishments paid off, leading to a full boat scholarship to UNLV.
Darren and Michel now run a non-profit organization, Sproles Empowered Youth , whose mission statement is:
SEY's mission is to empower teen boys and girls with essential life-skills that will encourage them to become responsible and successful adults. Michel and Darren's goal is to inspire these future leaders to face life's challenges with hope and dignity.
Darren and Michel have one child, daughter Devyn. That kid's gonna has one hell of an athletic gene pool to swim in...
