"Otis" by Kanye West & Jay-Z is Derek Jeter's song of the moment.
Who should they date?
Lindsay Lohan, Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift are all part of hot, young Hollywood. Nothing lights up the blogoshpere like the coupling of an athlete and a celebrity. There are lots of athletes out there, looking for that someone special. Here's a look at a few athlete-celebrity pairings that could be magic in the making.
There’s no doubt about it — Ryan Lochte is one of sport’s hottest stars, both in and out of the pool. He should give this supermodel, also known for her super-toned body and penchant for wearing tiny swimsuits, a call.
The hyped track star (see her in action) has been vocal about her virginity — and her interest in fellow virgin Tim Tebow (watch his moves). But after a disappointing showing at the Olympics (how'd she do?), Lolo needs some time away from the spotlight. This sweet, sensitive man might be just the person she needs.
The Yankees star is back on the market and (most likely) looking for a new girl to take out on the town. Jeter has a known preference for brunettes (who are some of his past loves?), so he might take a liking to this sometimes brown-haired, recently divorced (from whom?) pop star. Hopefully he doesn’t mind if she dyes her hair blue every once in a while.
After winning gold (her medal count) and setting a world record (in what?) in London, Allyson Felix definitely needs someone who can blaze through life as fast as she can. We’re doubtful of any celebrity's ability to set her record speeds, but this comic book superhero (from what series?) just might be the only one who can keep up with the track star.
Tim Tebow’s (see photos) lifestyle choices are no secret (read about them), so it’s easy to wonder how the newly minted QB (what's his team?) can find a girlfriend who will maintain his clean-cut public image. Considering her popularity, this teen actress and singer just might be the classy, all-American lady Tebow seems to be searching for.
While this sweetheart of Team USA isn’t technically single (who's she dating?), we think she’d be a great match for this heartthrob actor who’s so beloved by his female fans, he’s the subject of his own Internet meme (and more recently, what else?).
Despite playing quarterback for the New York Jets, it appears Mark Sanchez has been rather unlucky in love during his time in the Big Apple. This big-name actress, recently relocated to NYC, would certainly appreciate a night out with the football star. But the actress’ equally famous tot (see photos) might have to tag along!
Thanks to her two game-winning goals (watch coverage) that led the women’s soccer team to gold, Carli Lloyd is Team USA’s standout star. Maybe her on-field performance caught the eye of this high-profile Brit while in London. He’s a big soccer — er, football — fan!
Quarterback Matt Barkley (what's his team?) enters his final season poised to bring the team back to its championship-winning glory days. There’s no doubt Barkley will be one of the hottest college quarterbacks this season — so setting him up with one of music’s hottest young female singer-songwriters seems like a match made in tabloid heaven.
With Kim Kardashian involved in a very public relationship (see coverage of their recent drama) with hip-hop artist Kanye West, it’s time for Kris Humphries to find someone new of his own. If he’s feeling up for it, he should check out this top-ranked female MMA fighter who publicly claimed she’d love to go head-to-head against the former Mrs. Humphries in the octagon.
Newly transplanted (from where?), Dwight Howard (read about his trade) will soon find himself in the middle of Hollywood’s celebrity scene. While Howard might want to take some time to see what the ladies of LA have to offer, he might want to ring up this newly single quirky actress-singer (her current show) for a night on the town. At the very least, they could share each other’s glasses.
Andrew Luck seems to be living up to his name. His first NFL appearance (for what team?) in a preseason game displayed the confidence and skill. Perhaps he could rub a little of his “luck” off on this struggling starlet, desperate to revitalize her floundering, scandal-ridden career.
Metta World Peace’s much-publicized name change (what did he go by before?) immediately made the Lakers star one of the wackiest, most beloved figures in the NFL. We think he’d make a great match for this female rapper, also known for her vibrant public persona and numerous alter-egos.
One of the youngest players in the NBA, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has been thrust into the spotlight at a time when most teenagers are deciding where to attend college and what to wear to prom. Before things get too crazy, this Disney actress-singer starlet (her well-known flick) might be able to help him navigate the pressures of experiencing fame at such a young age.
If Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez really wants to live up to his nickname (what's he called?), it’s time he finds a princess of his own. What better place to start than with real-life royalty? This cousin of Princes William and Harry might be a good fit — that is, of course, if Hernandez is willing to travel to London for a few dates!
