No jinx, just fantasy heartbreak: Kim Kardashian & Cowboy Miles Austin board thelove boat
Rumors have been swirling for weeks, but now the evidence is in: Kim Kardashian has taken up with another football player.
And Texans, this time it's one of ours. Pictures of Kardashian and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin on a yacht docked at New York City's Chelsea Piers have surfaced.
It's a tough blow for Dallas women. Miles Austin is the adorable underdog who earned his way to primetime through dedication and perseverance — Dallas's own version of Rudy, but with more natural talent and piercing blue eyes.
Signed as a lowly undrafted free agent in 2006 from not-exactly-a-football-powerhouse Monmouth University (a Division I-AA program on the Jersey Shore), Austin returned punts and largely sat on the bench until last season — when an injury to Roy Williams catapulted the No. 3 receiver to starter status.
Austin was immediately on offensive sensation, making spectacular catches and ending the year as the third-leading reciever in the NFL with 1,320 yards, despite not getting a start until Week 8. He earned a trip to the Pro Bowl in the process.
I guess it's too much to ask for the boy next door who made good to date the girl next door.
But Cowboys fans of both genders, here's what we're not gonna do: we're not going to pretend that a stacked girlfriend in a luxury box has an effect on the outcome of a game. Yes, that's right, we're not going to Jessica Simpson her. (Kardashian's ex Reggie Bush has a Super Bowl ring on his finger, so she hasn't exactly proven to be bad luck.)
We're not going to call Kim Kardashian names just because she stole our fantasy boyfriend. We're going to write a sad poem in our diaries, and we're going to move on.
And come September, we're going to root for the Cowboys as if Miles Austin is smiling just for us.
