Lolo Jones denies she is dating Ndamukong Suh, jokes about Super Bowl

On Thursday, a gossip website reported that Lolo Jones and Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh are dating and that Lolo was a special guest at  Detroit’s season opener against St. Louis. Jones put the rumor to rest during an interview with ESPN Playbook later in the day, and she showcased some of her trademark witty sarcasm in the process.

“We are not currently dating,” Jones said. “However, if the Lions win the Super Bowl and he wants to use the ring to propose to me, then we’ll see.”

That sounds like a typical Lolo answer, as we know she loves to joke around and has even gotten herself into a little bit of trouble with her sense of humor before. From the sound of it, the Olympic hurdler’s virginity is still in tact and she is still in search of the man of her dreams.

Lolo and Suh share the same agent and share some of the same responsibilities, but she insists the two of them are just friends. Similar rumors popped up back in April and Jones denied them at that time as well, so she is either adamant about keeping the relationship a secret, or a big deal is being made out of nothing.

Lolo Jones reportedly dating Ndamukong Suh, attended Sunday’s game

Tim Tebow may not be the only football player Lolo Jones was anxious to meet after returning home from the London Olympics. As we all know, the personal life of Lolo is something that infatuates much of the general public due in part to the fact that she is so open about it and also because she openly admits she is a virgin. If you choose to believe this report from MediaTakeOut.com, Jones may have actually found herself a boyfriend — Detroit Lions tough guy Ndamukong Suh.

Well MediaTakeOut.com confirmed that she’s now got an NFL superstar BOYFRIEND. According to a TOP MTO snitch, LoLo attended Sunday’s Lions game as a PERSONAL GUEST of their star player Ndamukong Suh.

The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, “Lolo and [Ndamukong] have been kickin it for a while, and they are serious. [Ndamukong Suh] is very religious too, and respectful . . . they make a great couple.”

Ndamukong Suh says he doesn’t have a mean streak, doesn’t play angry

We already know that Ndamukong Suh does not consider himself to be a dirty player. He has been adamant about it several times in the past, as you would expect. Suh plays incredibly hard, which helps explain why he is such an intimidating presence on defense and also why he tends to be penalized more than others for late hits and unnecessary roughness. If it’s not dirty play, is it anger? Suh insists it is neither.

“It’s like, I open the throttle too much?” Suh said in a recent interview with GQ Magazine. “I get in trouble for opening my throttle…just like being on a jet. Like, you know, when they’re starting a plane, you just gradually, gradually throw it into full throttle. I’m always in full throttle. But they tell me now that I need to be at three-quarters of a throttle.

“A dirty player is somebody who ultimately is trying to hurt somebody. There’s a huge difference. There’s no gray in that. Like, you have no conscience, no nothing, no guilt. I don’t have that mean streak in me. I don’t play angry. It’s not anger.”

When you see plays like this one it is tough to believe that Suh is not either angry or trying to hurt someone. In fact, he’s probably better off admitting that he has a problem controlling his anger. That would be much better than trying to hurt someone, and it’s difficult to believe that neither is an issue for him.

We have seen plenty of plays and heard plenty of opinions from opposing players to believe that when there’s smoke, there’s fire. While you always want a player to give 100% effort, playing at three-quarter throttle probably isn’t a bad idea for Suh if it means not costing the Lions yards or racking up fines and suspensions.

Rob Gronkowski, Ndamukong Suh reportedly set to star on dating show

The day has finally come. We know you have all been anxiously awaiting the day that a major television network would announce their plans to feature Rob Gronkowski in a reality dating show, and that highly-anticipated day has finally come. According to the Detroit Free Press, the Gronk and Ndamukong Suh — along with several b-list celebrities — are set to star in a Fox celebrity dating show called “The Choice,” which premieres June 7.

For those of you who are familiar with NBC’s “The Voice,” the dating show will follow a similar format with blind auditions and spinning chairs. Instead of picking singers, the celebrities will blindly choose a date after receiving three rounds worth of information.

Other stars who are scheduled to appear include Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino from MTV’s “Jersey Shore” and Rob Kardashian, as in the brother of the Kardashian sisters. I think I speak for all of us when I say I’d be disappointed if Gronk doesn’t steal the show. Based on some of the hilarious comments he’s made this offseason and the amount of fun he had campaigning for the cover of Madden ’13, we expect nothing less than a show-stopping performance from Gronk week in and week out.

Bastion of sportsmanship Ndamukong Suh says he’s above bounties

Ndamukong Suh, who is perhaps the dirtiest defensive player in the NFL, took the opportunity Sunday to admonish the Saints for running a reprehensible bounty program.

Speaking prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup race Sunday, Suh told the Charlotte Observer “It’s unfortunate to hear these things come out. Me personally, I don’t take part in those things and knowing my teammates and knowing my coaches, we wouldn’t allow that.

“I understand it’s a tough situation the commissioner has to deal with. As he has in the past, he’s going to deal with it with a stiff hand. Hopefully, people can learn from the mistakes and make an example out of it.”

But wait a second, Ndamukong, your head coach was on Gregg Williams’ staff in Tennessee from 1999-2000. Are you sure Jim Schwartz wouldn’t allow something like that? He might not, but given Suh’s propensity for lying, it’s hard to take his word as the truth.

Ndamukong Suh Says His Reputation as Dirty Player has ‘No Substance Behind it’

Ndamukong Suh continues to plead ignorance in response to his reputation as a dirty player. The Lions defensive tackle spoke with ESPN’s Hannah Storm and laughed off the charges that he’s dirty.

“It’s funny to me. I don’t have issues of beating up people in bars. I know it’s not right. It doesn’t make sense to me. I think people try and make their own opinion and I think it’s a storyline,” Suh said of his reputation. “It’s a great storyline. I understood this year that a lot of people see me being a dirty player is a fun storyline to have and that’s what it is to me. It’s kind of comical to me keep saying something that really doesn’t have any substance behind it.”

Well Ndamukong, I used to defend you, but then you moved into the realm of indefensible after stomping Evan Dietrich-Smith during a game. No substance behind it? Just look at the picture above. You’re reputation isn’t changing anytime soon, and that’s the way it should be. You’ve done this to yourself, Suh.

Ndamukong Suh Tweets a Picture of Roger Goodell’s Coin Collection

Now that the Lions are out of the playoff, it is time to begin preparing for next season. For most, that means staying in shape and sticking to a strict workout routine. For someone like Ndamukong Suh, that can also include buttering up the NFL commissioner in preparation of another season full of illegal stomps and players complaining about the way you play. The only problem Suh ran into this week when he stopped by to pay Roger Goodell a visit is that the commish wasn’t in. Naturally, Suh took the opportunity to look around at some of his things and share them with the world. Check out this picture of Goodell’s coin collection that Suh tweeted out on Tuesday:

There you have it. Goodell is a coin collector.  I’m not sure he wanted everyone to know the kinds of valuables he keeps in his office, but it’s too late for that now.  Better put an extra lock on the door.
