Angela Rypien Taijaun Walker

They’re not quite at Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi levels, but Angela Rypien and Taijuan Walker would probably produce some incredibly athletic babies if they ever decided to have children.

Rypien, the daughter of former Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien, and Walker, a top pitching prospect in the Seattle Mariners organization, are the newest athlete couple. They have been boyfriend-girlfriend for at least a few months based on what we can tell from their social media accounts.

Rypien plays quarterback for the Baltimore Charm of the “Legends Football League,” which you know best as the league formerly known as the Lingerie Football League. She is listed at 6-foot and 149 pounds on the Charm’s website. Her stats for the most recent season were 16-for-36 for 152 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions. She also rushed for a touchdown.

Walker is a former first-round pick by the Mariners. He was drafted 43rd overall in 2010. He signed with the team and began pitching in the organization as a 17-year-old in rookie ball. He started off last season at Double-A, moved up to Triple-A, and even pitched 15 innings with the M’s last season. His career minor league numbers include a 23-26 record, 3.48 ERA and 400 strikeouts in 372 innings.

You may recognize Walker’s name because he was mentioned consistently during the David Price trade talks. The Mariners are so high on him they said they would not trade him even for someone like Price.

While Walker is getting ready for spring training, Rypien actually was doing some media work. She appeared as a guest on Jim Rome’s show on Showtime this week and got some good wishes from Tai:

Here at LBS, we tend to be curious by nature. When it came to our attention that Angela Rypien had been bragging about attending her first ever Nationals game, and later watching another on TV with her eye on someone specific, we had to find out if it was a coincidence that Gio Gonzalez happened to be the starting pitcher in both of those games. The Baltimore Charm quarterback and daughter of former Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien seemed to confirm to us that was the case.

On Wednesday, Gonzalez gave Sarah Kogod of D.C. Sports Bog a firm denial.
