After seeing pictures of Johnny Football’s girlfriend, Sarah Savage, I, like many others, thought one thing: she’s gorgeous. Way too pretty for even Johnny Heisman. There’s nothing you can say to convince me that she’d be with Johnny if not for his quick feet, good arm, and now, Heisman trophy. I’m sure Johnny has a fabulous personality, and I know some people believe the ideology that “looks don’t matter,” but there’s no way she’d talk to him if he was just your average, drunk, obnoxious, not-even-in-a-fraternity, college boy. According to internet hearsay, she’s 25 years old. She’s already been out of college for three years. What can a 25-year-old woman with a degree have in common with a 20-year-old boy who is stupid enough to hand a cop a fake ID?! NOTHING. But hey, props to her. She’s got a badass profile picture with the trophy now that I can only assume she’d been planning, down to the Instagram filter, for months. I just hope that if things last between the two of them that her children don’t turn out looking like characters from Sesame Street.
My thoughts are, if you’re going to date an athlete, date one who is at least somewhat in your league so it’s not blatantly obvious that you’re only with him for one reason. Sarah is obviously not the first to commit this crime. I’ve compiled a list of athletes with girlfriends or wives who are way out of their leagues, barring the jerseys and the pretty paychecks.
