With Alabama kicker Jeremy Shelley booting balls like an MVP in the National Championship Game, it’s a good time to remind you that he’s also winning off the field. Shelley recently celebrated his one year anniversary with girlfriend Blair McElroy, who is former Bama quarterback Greg McElroy’s sister. You may recall when many people watching the draft thought Blair was Greg’s girlfriend rather than his sister. But you know better than that.
On the left you see Blair McElroy, who is Greg McElroy’s younger sister. On the right is Meredith Gray, who is Greg’s girlfriend. On draft day, Greg’s sister Blair was getting all sorts of attention because TV cameras were showing her right next to her brother on the family’s couch. It’s no surprise because Blair seems to enjoy the spotlight. That’s in stark contrast to Meredith Gray who seems to avoid it.
In an interview a year ago, Gray said about being with Greg “It’s been quite an adventure, that’s for sure. I just think it’s funny that people are so amazed. He’s a human being. He has relationships.” She was also pleased to have “never been on TV as Greg McElroy’s girlfriend,” in contrast to girlfriends like Rachel Glandorf.
Sorry Meredith, thanks to a classic mixup, you’re now receiving some attention as Greg McElroy’s girlfriend. After seeing Blair on the couch with Greg, several people went to twitter and started talking about Blair as McElroy’s girlfriend, prompting her to tweet “Good god I am not Greg’s girlfriend … lol”
