When celebrities run out of other celebrities to date, they go for athletes. The Kardashian women (sans Kourtney) only know how to date sports stars. Hayden Panettiere has been known to hook up with a handful of athletes. Jessica Simpson, Kristin Cavallari, and Hilary Duff are all expecting kids with sportsmen. What I’m trying to say is, Athletes are hot and Hollywood women love them!
Here are the athletes who’ve made the rounds with Hollywood women. They’ve dated too many A-listers or maybe we just really want them to date A-listers, ahem Tim Tebow, ahem.
Alex Rodriguez: When I think of most notorious Hollywood athletes, the first name that comes to mind is NY Yankees Alex Rodriquez. A-Rod is most famous for dating Cameron Diaz, but before that he dated that serial monogamist Kate Hudson and the Queen of Pop Madonna.
Mark Sanchez: Sanchez is the New York Jets hottie quarterback and is currently dating Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton. They make quite a pretty couple. Before Upton, Sanchez was rumored to be dating Hayden Panettiere even htough she pulled the “just friends” card. Sanchez even dated Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
Derek Jeter: Jeter has been in Major League Baseball for 17 years, but someone give this guy a trophy for making the rounds in Hollywood. He’s dated (in no particular order) Scarlett Johansson, Mariah Carey, Jordana Brewster, Vanessa Minnillo, Jessica Alba, Adriana Lima, Jessica Biel, and his lastest GF Minka Kelly.
Brad Penny: This guy isn’t even in Major League Baseball anymore, but he has dated a ton of Hollywood ladies. He was recently engaged to Dancing With The Stars pro Karina Smirnoff. He also dated Eliza Dushku and Alyssa Milano. I don’t see the appeal, really.
Tony Romo: Quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, Romo has made the rounds with the blonde WAGs. He dated Carrie Underwood, Jessica Simpson and is now married and expecting a child with Miss USA Missouri Candice Crawford.
Tom Brady: Tom might be the hottest athlete. I’m serious! A lot of these guys just rely on their muscles and “being an athlete” status, but this NFL MVP (twice!) is like model hot! He's married to supermodel Gisele Bundchen, dated Tara Reid (well, maybe not something to brag about) and also knocked up cougar model Bridget Moynahan.
Tim Tebow: Soon to be NY Jets quarterback Tim Tebow hasn’t actually dated anyone in Hollywood, but he’s been rumored to be dating more women than any other celebrity ever, living or dead. He was rumored to be on a date with Taylor Swift. Katy Perry’s parents were trying to get him to date their daughter. He was recently rumored to be pursuing “Glee” actress Dianna Agron, and he was rumored to be the new The Bachelor.
