In these times, Twitter and Instagram are highly effective dating hubs for famous people. The sheer convenience of looking someone up whom you know is already interested in you is hard to beat. It can sometimes come back to bite you, though. James Franco’s snafu with a Scottish 17 year-old (who was about to turn 18) is a good example. On the one hand, social media is an efficient and direct way to make contact, and on the other hand it potentially airs one’s private life to the public. That’s why Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend Jen Selter is an interesting case and perhaps a mixed blessing.

Jen is known for having “the most instagrammed butt in the world,” a fact she publicizes on, you guessed it, her Twitter and Instagram pages. Posting pictures of herself on Instagram is essentially her job. So while she’s not at all a random person plucked from a cornucopia of fans and followers, she’s like a logical step up for Colin Kaepernick in the world of public internet dating. If internet hookups were a video game, Jen Selter would be the Big Boss of a level. According to TerezOwens.com, Kaepernick and Selter have entered the early stages of a relationship and Mr. Kaepernick has promptly unfollowed all of his internet groupies now that he’s involved with Jen. Folks, these are the gossipy details that come with having a documented public life.

Let’s get to what makes Colin’s life documented in the first place: he throws a damn fine football. In 2012, Colin was number one in adjusted yards per pass attempt (with 8.62), and in 2013 he was second in yards per pass completion with the 10th overall passer rating in the league. Colin’s rookie contract expires after 2014, and he’ll be paid a little under $1,000,000 this year. That is 2,000,000 less than the number of followers Colin’s girlfriend Jen Selter has on Instagram. However, according to CBS Sports, he’s expected to ask for $20,000,000 per year starting in 2015. Level up!

When we saw the headline of "Nnamdi Asomugha's wife Kerry Washington," we were taken aback. We consider ourselves fairly well versed on rumored relationships between athletes and Hollywood stars, but this one never crossed our radar.

However, sports gossip site TerezOwens.com (who knew about Aaron Hernandez's penchant for shooting people before Odin Lloyd did) is reporting that new 49ers Cornerback Asomugha has married Kerry Washington. Washington, of ABC's Scandal fame, has been linked to other actors in the past, but never concretely to the NFL star. TerezOwens source tells the site:

“We just received word that actress Kerry Washington has married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha. Kerry and Nnamdi have been dating since Summer 2012″

Further research from our part showed some whispers about Asomugha and Washington being previously rumored to have dated one another, though certainly no one went so far as to claim a marriage had happened, or was imminent. Asomugha has always been one to have more spoken about his on field performance than anything off the field, so it's not entirely shocking that there's no news about this. We'll keep things posted and see if Kerry Washington, or maybe Kerry Asomugha, becomes a regular with the San Francisco 49ers Wives, but till then, we'll have to survive on the scraps of these rumors to date.

Justin Smith has never been a man to garner much recognition. In a feature covering the recently-voted most underrated player in the NFL, ESPN chronicled the man who loves to shy away from the spotlight discussing life on and off the field. The dominant defensive tackle for the stout San Francisco 49er defense has come a long way in his twelve seasons in the NFL, but has always had a constant with him. Justin Smith's wife Kerri Smith has been a steady presence in his life, both during the season, and tending to their off the gridiron pursuits.

Justin and Kerri Smith own a golf course in Holts Summit, MO, near his hometown of Jefferson City. The couple keep rates reasonable to keep the course accessible to the average working stiff. Though the couple now resides in San Jose, they used to return to their course every summer, helping to tend to the facilities. Justin proudly bought Kerri a chainsaw to maintain the bushes, while he's frequently keep the greens mowed short and fast.

Justin Smith and the former Kerri Hils have been together since attending Missouri. The couple met in a gym on campus, while Kerri was a long-distance runner on the track and field team. When Justin was drafted by the Bengals, in an effort to remain close to her boyfriend, Kerri transferred to Xavier, where she ran the 800-meters, 1,500-meters and an event called the steeple chase (it's named for exactly what it sounds like). The pair were married not long after and now have two sons together, Wyatt and Rigg, and two dogs, Bear and Red. Hils remains at Xavier where, this spring, she hopes to compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association track championships - which is all the more impressive considering that Xavier doesn't even have enough runners to form a track team.
