Hunter Pence’s New Girlfriend is Playboy Playmate Shannon James (Pictures)

Hunter Pence is just absolutely killing life right now.  One of the better young outfielders in the game, Pence spent the first four seasons of his career with the Astros — a team that quickly became one of the worst in all of baseball.  After a season in which he belted 25 homers and knocked in 91 runs, it was clear Pence was outgrowing his potential in Houston.  Then, Hunter got the phone call every MLB player dreams of when he found out he was being traded from one of the worst franchises in the MLB to one of the best.

Now, Pence plays for the Phillies.  His starting pitching staff is one of the best in the game and the lineup he has been inserted into is stacked.  In 54 games after being traded to Philadelphia, he hit .324.  As Crossing Broad has informed us, he also started dating a Playboy Playmate named Shannon Jones somewhere along the line, who recently tweeted that she is on her way to Cabo with her man.  Simply put: it’s good to be Hunter Pence.

I’ve done my due diligence in adding her to our tremendous list of Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends, while also rounding up the somewhat SFW photos of the Playboy model.  If you want to venture around the internet for the NSFW pictures, well, she is a Playmate.  Enjoy, because we all know Hunter is.

Aaron Rodgers Reportedly Dating Actress Jessica Szohr (Pictures)

It’s been quite a while since we’ve updated our ever-expanding list of Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends for you, so we decided that there’s no better time than the final day of 2010 to make an addition. 

A new report claims Aaron Rodgers is dating actress Jessica Szohr, who is known for her work on the TV show Gossip Girl. We had no problem with Rodgers dating Erin Andrews, but we more than approve of his new lady friend if the rumors are true.

Supposedly Szohr was sitting in Aaron Rodgers’ private box last weekend with Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas, and Rodgers and Szohr attended a Milwaukee Bucks game together the following night.  Dating Jessica certainly warrants the LBS stamp of approval, but hanging out with Joe Jonas?  We’ll just assume Szohr and Greene are good friends and Rodgers was thrust into the situation.  As always, here are some pictures of Rodgers new girlfriend:

Hunter Mahan: My New Favorite Golfer

I know, I’ve already sung the praises of Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend and told you that I think he’s the real deal and the future of golf.  What can I say?  I’m a big flavor of the week type of guy and I just caught wind of the fact that Hunter Mahan is engaged to a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.  Did I mention she’s hot?  That’s right, I don’t need to because I already said she was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

Mahan won the Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday — where Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson fared miserably to say the least — after shooting a 12-under for the tournament.  He and the lucky lady, Kandi Harris, have been engaged since June.  Hot name?  Hot name.  The smokin’ hot sports girlfriends list welcomes you today, Kandi.  Here are some photos of Hunter Mahan’s girlfriend Kandi Harris:

Rate Alex Ovechkin’s New Girlfriend

Alexander Ovechkin has a new girlfriend, and in my opinion she’s not very hot.  I obviously wouldn’t tell him that because he’d probably shove me or something.  Maybe the reason I feel that way is that I’m not into girls who look like they’re going to fall over if a strong breeze comes along but hey, I’m sure Valeria Sokolova — a Russian model — is a lovely girl and the two of them are very happy.  I just feel like a guy who is worth millions and is capable of this can do a tiny bit better, but who am I to try to play Cupid?

Anyway, the point is it probably wouldn’t hurt her to eat something.  Actually it might hurt her career, but I have a feeling it would benefit her health.  I’m going to give Sokolova a “6” right now.  I’ve filed her under my smokin’ hot sports girlfriends for now, but she’s on probation until further notice.  Here are some photos of Alex Ovechkin’s girlfriend Valeria Sokolova, courtesy of Sportress of Blogitude:

Pau Gasol: My New Favorite…Nope, There’s Just No Way I’m Saying That

Add Silvia Lopez Castro to the list of Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends. As a Celtics fan, I can’t bring myself to give Pau Gasol a sincere compliment.  In the interest of continuing a tradition I will, however, admit that his girlfriend is hot.  He’s supposedly been dating Silvia Lopez Castro, a Dream Cheers cheerleader, for a while now.  Dream Cheers is a traveling dance group that performs halftime shows for sports teams like FC Barcelona.

Shouldn’t she be dating some soccer player or someone whose looks haven’t been compared to more animals than anyone in the history of professional sports?  None the less, my opinion doesn’t matter and she’s settled with the llama.  And at the end of the day Gasol’s a lucky man — one with two straight championships and a trophy girlfriend. On a different note, could this purse have belonged to her? Certainly makes one think.  Here are some photos of Pau Gasol’s girlfriend, cheerleader Silvia Lopez Castro, for your viewing pleasure.

Ryan Howard: My New Favorite Philly

My list of favorites continues to grow this week.  The latest addition; Philadelphia Phillies slugger Ryan Howard.  Not long after inking a contract worth $125 million and becoming the second-highest paid player in the MLB, Howard is rumored to be dating Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks who, like Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend and Doug Wilson’s daughter, happens to be incredibly fun to look at.  If the rumors are indeed true, I’m happy for Ryan and glad he decided to take the Tom Brady approach to being a superstar athlete.

Howard’s resume is impressive, to say the least.  He’s gone from dating a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader to a Victoria’s Secret model, who happens to have appeared in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue which always helps a woman warm a sports fan’s heart.  I think the only logical thing to do here is have a competition.  We need to figure out who’s hotter — Ryan Howard’s old girlfriend or alleged new girlfriend.  Okay, we don’t need to, but it’s fun.  Here are some pictures of Ryan Howard’s girlfriends, Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Krystle Campell and Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks:

Rory McIlroy: My New Favorite Golfer

In case you didn’t hear, a 20-year-old golfer named Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland dominated the scene at the Quail Hollow Championship over the weekend, becoming the youngest PGA Tour winner since Tiger Woods accomplished the feat a few years back.  The up-and-coming star finished the event at 15-under and won himself $1.17 million in the process.

Let the gossip begin as pictures of the young star’s girlfriend — Holly Sweeney — have been rapidly surfacing all over the internet.  The two have been dating since they were only in their mid-teens, and good friend Sports By Brooks directed our attention to the heat the now 19-year-old is bringing.  Here’s what McIlroy told the Belfast Telegraph about his girlfriend a few years back:

Holly is quite shy. This is the first time she has been in the media spotlight and she has handled herself really well, but I think she doesn’t want to turn into a typical girlfriend of a sports person, so she likes to take a back seat.”

That’s probably a good idea, Holly.  Sometimes “sports girlfriends” and wives find themselves being cheated on.  Not saying McIlroy has the morals — or lack there of — that Tiger has, but I’m sure girlfriends of golfers are now a bit more worried about their boyfriends cheating on them with porn stars than they were, say, last year. Sweeney doesn’t look to be very shy anymore to me, but that’s just my opinion. In any event, here are some pictures of Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend if you care to have a look at the better half of my new favorite golfer on the Tour:
