Four Couples

With Wrestlemania 24 this Sunday, Sports Illustrated brought up a very interesting idea asking who would win in an intergender tag team match between four athlete-celebrity couples:

New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush and...uh, actress Kim Kardashian

They would probably win the wrestling match due to their uh, sheer athletic ability. Reggie Bush is freakishly fast and well built. And as for know.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo
and singer Jessica Simpson

Although she is from Texas, Dallas sports fans are no longer fans of Simpson, as she showed up to a couple games in which Romo played terrible and the Cowboys lost. When they sat courtside at a Dallas Mavericks game pictured below, they lost a heartbreaker to the Lakers. Talk about a girlfriend curse.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady
and Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen

Tom Brady went to New York undefeated to visit Gisele during the week off before the Super Bowl. Then Brady played a relatively lousy game and choked, losing the biggest game of the year. Still though, they do get the award for being the best at their respective careers at this point in time.

San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker
and actress Eva Longoria

Aw, now they are just sweet. Parker is living the dream, coming off an amazing year in which his he led the Spurs to an NBA championship, won the Finals MVP, and married everyone's favorite housewife in Paris. As the longest lasting of these couples and only ones to have already tied the knot, you gotta think they are built to last the longest.
