Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder (a.k.a. White Sanchez) married ESPN college football reporter Samantha Steele in Wisconsin on Monday just two weeks after the couple announced their engagement and just a couple months after they met at a taping of College GameDay. Getting hitched at a courthouse on his day off in Week 16? Sounds romantic. The abrupt nuptials have caused many to speculate about why the two were in such a hurry.


Twitter wags can never just be happy for people, can they? Dammit, people, we’ve wife-shamed Samantha Steele. And not just because she’s marrying Christian Ponder.
