UPDATE: 03/02/2012: Hallelujah! I'm genuinely excited for this news
We got word from a reader named Jessica letting us know that in no way shape or form is Ahmad Bradshaw dating Angelina. Ahmad Bradshaw is currently dating a woman named Jessica Marcus, whom he has apparently dated for the better part of a decade. They both attended Graham High School in Bluefield, VA, though Ahmad was two years ahead of her. The reader also told us that Jessica was at the Super Bowl with Ahmad, and that the couple has two children together.
Best part of the email we got? The reader didn't use any racially ignorant terminology when describing their relationship. Stay classy, and keep inserting yourself in stories you're not a part of, Angelina.
Poor Ahmad Bradshaw.
It's strange to write those words. As a crestfallen Patriots fan, it really seems out of place to feel bad for any player on the Giants, but I think everyone will agree that no Giants player (well, save for maybe Brandon Jacobs), would deserve the fate of this:
It would appear that world champion Ahmad Bradshaw either dated at one time, or is currently dating Angelina from Jersey Shore. Yes, the Staten Island Dump. Yes, the Rob Kardashian of Staten Island, Yes, Angelina Pivarnick,... that Angelina.
Within the last month, a picture surfaced of the two in a New York club that suggested a close friendship at the very least. From TMZ.com (and seriously... that broad gets followed by the paparazzi???):
Angelina was at Saddle Ranch in L.A. yesterday ... when we asked point blank if they were together ... and we were met with an uncomfortable silence ... followed by, "I'm not dating him ... like, no."
Pivarnick explained, "We've hung out together ... we're really close, he's a cool dude."
"I think he's a hot black ... I'm not gonna deny that. I would be lying if I told you he wasn't hot."
So where do we begin here? Do we begin with the lack of media savvy to know that if you want to deny a relationship, you don't start with an awkward pause, or that you hyperfocus on a verb indicating that a verb other than "dating" would explain your relationship? Do we ask how they're so close after "hanging out?" Or, do we look at the fact that she actually uttered the phrase, "I think he's a hot black." I'm not saying she's a racist, but that's a messed up way to end that sentence. Don't feel like tacking the word "guy" on the end of that? It just seems odd and borderline inappropriate,... but then again, I suppose that sums up her 14:59 of fame. It's almost over folks.... Trust us.
For added fun, we included the worst song in the history of songs,... called "I'm Hot," by utterly and continuously awful Angelina.
In a move flat out stolen from a college kid when Ian Johnson of Boise State proposed after a Bowl game, Giants backup linebacker Greg Jones dropped to one knee immediately after the Giants closed out Super Bowl 46. With confetti continuing to rain on the field, Jones found Piechowski who was wearing his number 53 jersey and asked her to marry him. Jones and Piechowski met while attending Michigan State together, becoming friends for a couple years before kindling a romance a little over a year ago. Amanda played basketball at MSU and now reportedly works as a model.
Jones described the scene, "She was bawling,... She definitely knows how I feel. A speech wasn’t even needed,... Just everything we have been through together ... she has been there since day one."
Jones gave the ring to practice squad player, Christian Hopkins to hold during the game, with instructions that he would only need it if the Giants won the game.
Seriously,.. if Gronk had hauls in that hail mary as time expired, are the two engaged yet? How long does he wait if they lose? God I wish we could have found out (and yes, we're all sad and bitter Pats fans here, including Brez, our newest contributor).
Most recently in the news for being the crazy old lady possibly trying to kill accosting Terry Bradshaw on live TV after the Giants defeated the 49ers in the NFC Championship game to advance to the Super Bowl, Ann Mara is the 82 year old widow of Wellington Mara and the mother of current Giants President and CEO, John Mara. As the elder stateswoman of the Giants, Ann Mara has received her share of media attention especially since the passing of her husband, former Giants President and co-owner Wellington Mara, thrust her into the spotlight even more. After seeing Bradshaw pick against the Giants week after week throughout the 2011 season, Ann Mara apparently had enough and approached him during the post-game interviews. After her son John attempted several times to pull her away from the broadcast, Ann Mara finally broke though and poked Bradshaw in the arm to get his attention and said 'You Never Pick the Giants', loud enough that we could all hear it at home. Though Bradshaw immediately apologized to her, there is no word on whether he'll be picking against the Giants again today.
As if the attention she received from her throwdown with Bradshaw wasn't enough, Ann Mara was in the news again just days later when she broke her shoulder. On the way home from church (where she was no doubt simultaneously praying that Tom Brady go easy on the Giants and also for forgiveness for her assault on Bradshaw), Mara fell and broke her shoulder. The Giants, in typical fashion, are reporting her as 'probable' for this weekends game. She's a tough broad and we highly doubt she'll let something like a broken shoulder keep her out.
Wellington and the former Ann Mumm were married in 1954 after they met two years earlier in a fairytale fashion: during church at St. Ignatius Loyola in Manhattan, the two both rushed to the aid of an old lady who had fainted. The rest, including 11 children and a whopping 43 grandchildren (including actresses Rooney and Kate Mara) and an even more impressive 11 great-grand children (with two more coming very soon), was history.
In an homage to Ann Mara's now-famous granddaughter Rooney Mara (recently nominated for her starring role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), we here at PlayerWives.com have taken to referring to Ann Mara as The Girl who took on Terry Bradshaw. We have to think that if it wasn't for that broken shoulder, she may very well have put Bradshaw in a choke hold before today's game and forced him to pick the Giants over the Patriots. Hell, she might do it anyway.
