Legendary baseball manager Sparky Anderson has passed away at age 83 due to complications of demetia. Anderson was the first manager to win a World Series in both leagues (Detroit Tigers 1984, Cincinnati Reds 1975 & 1976). As a Detroit girl and Tigers fan this was very sad. As I was looking through YouTube, I found this PSA announcement from the 80s that sums up Sparky’s persona.
Samantha Steele- December 2012
ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Steele is engaged to Minnesota Viking QB Christian Ponder earning her the honor of December 2012 Jersey Chaser of the Month.Steele and Ponder began dating at the begining of the NFL season and both had breakout years. Ponder claimed the starting job for the Vikings, while Steele was crowned ESPN’s new darling with the departure of Erin Andrews. The couple met on the College Game Day set. When asked about the relationship, Ponder said: “The cool thing is that obviously, we’re both at the same time, so we don’t get to see each other that much. But at least one person isn’t feeling guilty about not making the effort to do it or whatever. Then we kind of have the same schedule in the off season, so that’ll be good.” Share It
