Who cares if Tony Romo and Tom Brady actually excel on the football field?
Matt Leinart is intent on following in their celebrity gossip footsteps!
The former USC star was in Vegas partying over the weekend with old flame Kristin Cavallari, who was celebrating her 21st birthday.You might know Matt Leinart as a Heisman-winning football star from USC.Matt was the tenth pick of the 2005 NFL Draft, where he was selected by the Arizona Cardinals.His rookie year was filled with a lot of up and downs.Or the guy who knocked up ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron and has been in a public war of words with her over parenting habits and custody of their son, Cole.
The broken collarbone he suffered this year might make it difficult to hold Cole, but Matt Leinart insists he wants to spend more time with his kind, not less.
1 pick in 2005 draft * Returns for senior season and doesn’t win second Heisman Trophy * Loses National Title game to Texas * Slides to No.
10 pick in the draft * “Dates” Paris Hilton * Holds out with Cardinals, and is the last first-round pick signed * Gets college girlfriend pregnant Now it’s already been pointed out by the math majors over at Deadspin that if Leinart is expecting in September, October, or November, it’s (bad pun alert) conceivable that Leinart was doing double duty between USC basketball player Brynn Cameron (she’ll miss the upcoming season, by the way) and Paris Hilton.
The NFL preseason has seen some off-the-field incidents shake several teams to their core – Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s terrifying motorcycle accident; Vikings top receiver Koren Robinson getting cut following a DUI; Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor attempting to make nice with teammate Zach Thomas following a divorce from Thomas’s sister – just to name a few.
But they all pale in comparison to last night’s stunning news that Matt Leinart has knocked up his college girlfriend, and he’s set to be a Baby Daddy .
If pro athletes are the rock stars of today, then it follows that they're getting rock star-quality action. The wives-and-girlfriends phenomenon—they're called WAGs in Europe—used to be sporadic at best in the States.
