It goes without saying that Foles is on an incredible hot streak after having cemented himself as the Eagles’ starter of the future with an excellent season in 2013. Things appear to be going as well in his personal life as they are on the gridiron.

Foles has two more years remaining on his rookie contract, but the Eagles will likely look to extend him before it expires. At that point, he and Ms. Moore will be very, very wealthy.

Casey-Janssen-proposal

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb received a ton of publicity earlier this month when he proposed to his girlfriend with the help of a dolphin. As it turns out, he was not the only MLB pitcher who executed a flawless proposal this offseason. Last month, Toronto Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen proposed to his girlfriend Lauren Spear while jumping out of a plane.

According to the National Post, Janssen and Spear went skydiving and Janssen put a huge sign near their landing spot that read “Lauren, will you marry me?” Lauren and Casey met in Toronto during the 2012 season, and Janssen said she once told him she wanted to go skydiving.

“I thought, ‘That’s a little crazy,’ but I tucked it away in the back of my mind,” he recalled.

Janssen jumped out of the plane just before Spear, which he said gave him enough time to be waiting on the ground with a ring in hand.

“It was as smooth as it could be,” he said. “Lauren was a minute and a half after me. She landed pretty much right in front of me, and I was on my knee proposing.”

He also surprised Spear by having her family there to witness the special moment.

So there you have it, gents. The standard is set. Start booking your skydiving trips now.

Ray Rice’s girlfriend-fiancee is Janay Palmer

Ray Rice girlfriend fiancee Janay Palmer

Ray Rice was arrested over the weekend following an altercation with his fiancee in Atlantic City. Both he and his fiancee were released, and Rice’s attorney characterized the incident as minor.

Obviously following an incident like that, many people are curious about Rice’s fiancee/girlfriend. That’s why we have answers for you.

Rice’s girlfriend is a woman named Janay Palmer. The two have been together since around 2008, just before the time Rice was drafted by the Ravens. They a young daughter together named Rayven (you can see a picture of the three here) and they became engaged around 2012.

According to an interview she gave The Times West Virginian, Palmer and Rice, who are both from New York, met in high school. They kept in contact while he was at Rutgers and she was at a junior college, and they began dating shortly before Rice was drafted by the Ravens in 2008.

Palmer moved with Rice to Maryland after he was drafted. She enrolled in nearby Towson State for school, and for a graduation gift, Rice gave her a new car and engagement ring. Here’s how the proposal went down.

Rice asked Janay to go outside to grab his wallet from the car. He ended up telling her the engagement ring and 2012 Acura were hers.

“I almost passed out when he told me the car was mine,” said Palmer. “I’m just happy I decided to be nice that day instead of letting him get his own wallet.”

Palmer, now 26, gave birth to the couple’s daughter in Feb. 2012. The two are scheduled to be married in June.

Janay experienced a brush with the law when she was arrested for shoplifting and had her picture splashed all over gossip site Media Take Out.

Palmer’s sister, Taylor Palmer, is currently a basketball player at West Virginia, which has led her and Ray to go to Morgantown to catch a game.

Oshie’s girlfriend is Lauren Cosgrove, and some would argue that she is the driving force behind the man whose Wikipedia briefly referred to him as an American hero. Wouldn’t you be motivated to win if you had this waiting at home for you?

Eric Decker got good luck butt squeeze on wife Jessie James

Eric Decker wife Jessie James butt

Eric Decker is going into the Super Bowl with an advantage over everyone: he has good karma from his wife, Jessie James.

Jessie James Decker posted the above picture on her Instagram account Saturday, the day before the Super Bowl, of her husband Eric grabbing her butt as part of a massive hug at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. We love her clothes, too.

She’s wearing a great sweatshirt that says “Mrs Decker” on the back, and she has some Denver Broncos-colored socks on under her boots.

Jessie James Mrs Decker

Jessie James is a singer and has her own career in music, in addition to being the wife of the Broncos’ receiver. The two were married last year and have a reality TV show on E! where their goal is to show that reality TV couples can actually work and be drama-free. But they are about to have some drama this offseason — Jessie is pregnant with the couple’s first child, and Eric is likely to end up with a different team because he’ll be a free agent.

As long as Decker gets to take wife Jessie with him wherever he goes, we have a feeling that he’ll be pretty happy. I mean who wouldn’t love a wife who’s cool with her hubby grabbing a handful of the butt and then posting that pic online?

Gabrielle Union: I’m open with Dwayne Wade about my bathroom habits

Dywane-Wade-Gabrielle-UnionHopefully Dwyane Wade keeps an ample supply of air fresheners around his house, because his fiancee Gabrielle Union has a high-fiber diet. What does that mean? According to her, she breaks wind and goes to the bathroom a lot and isn’t shy about it.

During an appearance on “Chelsea Lately” Tuesday night, the topic of Union’s new show “Being Mary Jane” came up. Apparently Gabby’s character uses the bathroom a lot in the BET original series. She said she does the same at home and D-Wade knows it.

“There’s none of that I don’t fart, I don’t poop,” Union said of her relationship with Wade. “I have a high-fiber diet. This is happening. Like right from jump, I’m gonna be in there.”

[Related: Gabrielle Union says she puts Richard Sherman's trash talking to shame]

Chelsea wholeheartedly agreed with Gabrielle that serious relationships should always involve an openness when it comes to bowel movements. Union then said there would be a problem if she waited until after she got her engagement ring to reveal that she takes a lot of dumps.

“If I get this (flashes engagement ring) and then later I’m like, ‘Oh, by the way, I go three times a day and leave the door open. And I don’t light a match,’” Union joked.

Breakfast, anyone?
