So you might have heard by now that Prince Amukamara was a virgin until his wedding night. Well, Prince Amukamara's wife Pilar Davis Amukamara has deflowered the young man. The story that rolled out soon after involved Prince's teammate Antrel Rolle basically saying the team is happy for him and that he has a bit more swagger in his step now. I find the comments on some of these articles pretty funny. One such comment reads "chances that Pilar was a virgin before marrying the Prince= zero." Another one reads, "I lost it a decade ago, still zero swagger."
The swagger patrol is on the loose! So let's talk about Prince Amukamara's lovely wife Pilar. She first met Prince at a nightclub, and Prince told some of his friends he was with that he was into her. He didn't really know what to do, but they eventually got to talking, and Prince told her he was a manager at GAP. Man, this is so weird to me. It's like reverso-world, where he is purposefully trying to avoid using his easy-lay ticket (being an NFL player) and instead trying to appear to be an average schlub. So she gives him her email address (because he thought asking for her number was too forward). Only after that does she learn he plays for the Giants. Incidentally, Prince did not and has never consumed any alcohol.
Flash forward to now, and Prince's wife Pilar got a pretty amazing marriage proposal. The two were at a Jabbawockeez show, which is essentially a really hip dance performance by a bunch of dudes in masks. So Pilar gets picked out of the crowd to go on stage and get danced to or whatever, and after she's up there for awhile, Prince dawns a Jabbawockeez mask (unbeknownst to Pilar) and joins the dancing crew. He then approaches Pilar while she's sitting on stage, takes a knee, pulls out the ring, rips his mask off and proposes to her. That's pretty slick, man.

Abby Manning, the wife of Eli Manning, has married one of the bigger names in the league, but she does seem to keep an air of humility. With the responsibilities of motherhood, women tend to cut out the unnecessary stuff. This is a fairly storied relationship, and Abby is a big name in the world of professional sports wives. Let's delve deeper in a classy and restrained lifestyles-of-the-rich-and-famous style, shall we?
Firstly, the big news for Eli Manning and wife Abby Manning came last year with the arrival of their second daughter, who they've named Lucy. I wonder if Eli was secretly pissed that he missed the train for having a son a second time. Sure, sure-- he acts all fulfilled, but you've gotta' know he wants an heir to the quarterbacking throne of greatness.
Abby has decorated their 3000 square foot condo in Hoboken with all kinds of goodies. By the way, I live a few miles from Hoboken just across the Hudson, and it's turned into one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the NYC area. For starters, the place is one of those Bill Gatesy-type joints. Everything's automated and controlled with a touch of a button. Speakers hidden in bookshelves, thermostats that sense who's in the room and adjust accordingly, courtesans of the night that fall from chutes when the wife and kids are away. No, that last one is untrue.
Apparently Eli's wife, the former Abby McGrew, is a devoted philanthropist whose many gifts have included money for St. Vincent's hospital to build a "holistic birthing center," often referred to as a "dome of pain" by the layperson. Abby and Eli have been together since college, so of course they make sizable contributions to the University of Mississippi. Giving money to any institution of learning in Mississippi automatically makes you a saint. Mississippi native John Grisham needs to include Eli and Abby in a football related courtroom bestseller just for that.

UPDATE 07/14/2014: One gigantic diamond ring later, and Hakeem Nicks girlfriend Ariel Meredith is technically no longer his girlfriend. The new Colts wide receiver dropped to one knee and proposed to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model. In a happy ending, the bombshell said yes.
While no official wedding date has been set, a couple that's never been afraid of the flashbulbs of the paparazzi, we're sure to know more details before things go down. With a stacked team in Indy and hopeful postseason plans, Hak would be wise to wait until the spring to lock things down.. Until then.....
Hakeem Nicks has had a tough couple years on the field. Despite an injury plagued stretch, life off the gridiron is going well for the Giants receiver. For proof, please consult the pictures of Hakeem Nicks' girlfriend Ariel Meredith to the right.
Ariel Meredith is a 28 year old model, who has appeared in four Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues, in 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2014. She began modeling in part time capacity in 1998 while in school before turning to full time in 2005. Ariel and Hakeem were first seen at the 2013 SI Swimsuit 50th Anniversary kick off event in February, and have reportedly been dating since late 2012.
Geographically, the relationship makes sense. Hakeem Nicks has been in New York since the Giants drafted him in 2009, and Meredith moved to the modeling capital of America in 2005. Unfortunately, Nicks is a free agent and the chances he returns to the Giants seem slimmer by the day. With the cross town Jets in need of offensive weapons, Ariel Meredith may be the motivating factor to keep him in New York. Hell, with millions of dollars and being able to come home to her - it would be enough to keep me in town too. Congrats Hak!
