It's too bad that Dallas Cowboy's tight end Jason Witten is married -- because his tackle yesterday of a unsuspecting cheerleader could have been the start of a beautiful relationship. Maybe even a reality show. Anyone who thinks cheerleaders are not athletes build for endurance needs to check out this video from yesterday's Cowboys/Dolphins game. Pom-pom girl Melissa Kellerman had her back to the play and didn't see the 6-foot-6, 265 pound freight train barrelling down on her. Maybe that was a good thing because he was moving fast, and if she hadn't been able to dodge, she would have likely tensed up and seriously injured herself in the impact.
In case you missed it yesterday, here's the clip:
I can't imagine that Witten's wife is too pleased by all the "romantic comedy" talk that's coming out of this video -- some sites are even lining up actors to play the couple, including Bradley Cooper and Jessica Alba. Or the fact that the 29-year-old Witten's right hand seems to cop a good feel before he rolls off the hot brunette. I must say Mrs. Witten does sound like a cool lady, however, so maybe she laughed just as much as Kellerman did when she got up and realized what had happened. Mrs. Witten husband are very involved in charities together, specifically domestic abuse causes, and they have two little boys together. Sounds like Kellerman couldn't have picked a nicer guy to get pummelled by.
Did you watch football yesterday? By choice?
