Barry Sanders files for divorce from wife Lauren Campbell

Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders has filed for a divorce from wife Lauren Campbell, The Oakland Press reports.

The couple has been together over 10 years and Sanders reportedly filed for the divorce on Friday.

According to The Oakland Press, Sanders said there was a breakdown in the marital relationship and no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.

He’s seeking joint custody of their children, one of whom — Barry Sanders Jr. — committed to play football at Stanford.

Let’s just hope their divorce doesn’t get as ugly as fellow Hall of Famer Deion Sanders‘.

Reid Brignac’s girlfriend Playmate Lauren Anderson is reportedly pregnant

The Tampa Bay Rays are cleaning up this offseason. We don’t mean that the team’s roster has improved significantly. Tampa rarely makes any big splashes during the offseason but always remains in contention, so that isn’t a concern. As far as the players’ social lives are concerned, however, the Rays are dominating the league. Reid Brignac’s girlfriend, former Playboy Playmate Lauren Anderson, is reportedly pregnant.

As The Big Lead pointed out, the couple has a baby registry online here if you’re interested in surprising them with a gift. The discovery that Brignac and Anderson are pregnant comes just days after third baseman Evan Longoria confirmed that he is dating former Playmate Jaime Edmondson. Unfortunately for Derek Jeter, A-Rod has lousy taste in women. That leaves Brignac and Longoria as the kings of the left side of the infield in the dating world.

Evan Longoria confirms he is dating Jaime Edmondson

The photo you see above — which was shared by Jaime Edmondson herself — and a series of tweets have recently sparked speculation that a certain Rays third baseman and a certain Playboy model may be dating. Evan Longoria has ended any speculation by confirming that he is one lucky dude.

“Yes, we are dating,” Longoria said according to the Tampa Bay Times. “It’s been a secret for long enough; it’s not really been a secret,  but nobody has asked about it. We are dating.”

“I don’t even think of her like that,” he said when someone reminded him that he’s now dating Playboy’s Miss January 2010 and a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader. “She’s actually more informed on sports. She did a fantasy football blog the whole year, and she does a show on Sirius satellite radio. So it’s pretty cool to be able to talk to somebody on that level outside of the whole modeling thing.”

Jaime does seem to know sports. Or, I should say, she is constantly connected with sports by doing things like recreating the Super Bowl’s best moments in a fun-to-look-at photo shoot and frequently being featured in Jimmy Traina’s Hot Clicks.

From the sound of it, Longoria found himself a nice catch. We had a hunch he was looking for love when he lobbed a couple of compliments toward Alex Morgan on Twitter back in November, so we’re happy for him. And a little jealous.

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant kiss on Valentine’s Day (Pictures)

A reconciliation between Kobe and Vanessa Bryant may be in store given the way the two smooched on Valentine’s Day.

Yes, Vanessa made an appearance at Staples Center to watch the Lakers beat the Hawks Tuesday night. Even though the two have filed for divorce, nothing is finalized, so there’s a possibility they could still get back together. People who intend to get a divorce don’t kiss on the lips like that.

Tony Parker reportedly has a new girlfriend named Axelle (Picture)

Personally, I would never get over a split with Eva Longoria. That blow would just be too much for me to handle. I guess that’s why I’m not Tony Parker. Well, that and I suck at playing basketball — but this isn’t about that. According to the NY Post, the woman above is Parker’s new girlfriend. She is a French woman named Axelle, and the two were reportedly spotted shopping together on Thursday night with a source saying, “They shopped for about two hours together and looked very romantic.” Another source close to Parker told the Post, “They are an item.”

Parker was also seen attending a tennis tournament with Axelle back in November, so apparently this has been going on for a little while. If you remember, Parker and Longoria split up after Eva suspected Tony was involved with Brent Barry’s ex-wife. Parker suspected Longoria was involved with Lance Armstrong. He has since dated a French beauty queen and now Axelle, who meets the standard he has set as you can see. I wish I was a rich, French basketball player.

Kevin Youkilis reportedly engaged to Tom Brady’s sister Julie

Kevin Youkilis and Tom Brady’s sister, Julie Brady, reportedly are engaged.

The Boston Herald reports the news four months after they ran (and then deleted) a story about Youkilis dating Tom Brady’s sister. In their October report, they said Youkilis was dating another one of Tom’s sisters — Nancy Brady. Apparently they got that detail wrong last time.

The Herald says Youkilis spent Super Bowl week with the Brady family and watched the game from their box. They say the two met at a postgame party last year after the Patriots lost to the Jets in the playoffs.

Julie was a soccer player at St. Mary’s in California and reportedly is now a schoolteacher. Youkilis is a three-time All-Star for the Red Sox and recovering from a sports hernia surgery.

With spring training looming for the Sox, the Herald believes a marriage in the offseason is likely.

And if you think this Boston sports love circle is odd, remember that Tom Coughlin coaches his son-in-law Chris Snee on the Giants.

Wes Welker Reportedly Engaged to Anna Burns

Wes Welker and Anna Burns have been together for more than two years, and the two reportedly are engaged. The Boston Herald, which has very few details, says Welker recently popped the question. They say Anna asked Wes for a love bracelet for Christmas, but at the advice of Tom Brady, Weezy got her a ring.

The public has been given a taste of their relationship through tweets shared by Wes recently. He shared a picture of them celebrating Christmas together (pictured), and one of him serving her breakfast in bed (on a paper plate).
