WAG

Thousands of soccer fans plan march to demand Alexis Sanchez break up with girlfriend

Alexis Sanchez

Thousands of Chilean soccer fans are planning a march to protest the relationship involving Alexis Sanchez and his current girlfriend.

Sanchez plays for Arsenal in the Premier League as well as the Chilean national team. The forward has been involved in multiple trade rumors lately and has been frustrating Arsenal fans. Even manager Arsene Wenger made it seem like the team would prefer to be without Sanchez.

Well Chilean fans are dissatisfied with Sanchez too, and they feel the forward’s relationship with girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez is partly to blame for his poor form.

A Facebook group called “La Marea Roja Valpara√≠so” started an event scheduled for Oct. 5 in which they plan to march in protest of Sanchez’s relationship. The event is titled “MARCHA PARA QUE ALEXIS TERMINE CON MAYTE Y VUELVA A SU NIVEL” and says they hope that a breakup would allow Sanchez to return to his previous level of play in time for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

As of Thursday evening, over 56,000 people were marked on Facebook as “Going” to the event, with another 71,000 “Interested.” That’s a lot of people.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a fan base upset with a girlfriend and blamed them for a player’s struggles (this recent one comes to mind), but this might be the most extreme measures we’ve seen fans take in protest.

Will Grier may be a college quarterback, but he’s well ahead of the game when it comes to his family life. The 22-year-old is married and has a daughter. In fact, Grier’s wife Jeanne Marie, who was shown on TV during West Virginia’s season-opening game against Virginia Tech, was a Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader.

Here are some photos of Jeanne Marie from her cheerleader days:

Justin Thomas, girlfriend Jillian Wisniewski know how to have a good time

Justin Thomas kept himself in the hunt all week at the PGA Championship, and it’s probably safe to assume his better half was on pins and needles as the drama unfolded.

Thomas and his girlfriend, Jillian Wisniewski, are no strangers to a good time. The four-time winner on the PGA Tour has shared a number of posts on social media proudly bragging about Wisniewski’s good looks, and the couple has taken plenty of vacations together since they started dating.

Holidays are better with some arm candy like this

Back in May, Thomas and Wisniewski accompanied some other golfers to Churchill Downs.

Can't beat Derby weekend! What a weekend with this squad

Thomas, a self-proclaimed momma’s boy, also revealed recently that Wisniewski shares a birthday with his mother.

Wishing a very happy birthday to both of my ladies! And here's to momma still looking that young ??

But you know how we really know Wisniewski must be “the one” for Thomas? She joined Thomas on one of the many bro trips he takes with some of his golf buddies when she and some other ladies went to the Bahamas with Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, among others. If that’s not love, we don’t know what is.

Brooks Koepka girlfriend is Jena Sims, not Becky Edwards

Jena Sims

Brooks Koepka won his first career major when he captured the US Open on Sunday with a combined score of 16 under for the tournament, tying a US Open record.

Koepka was carted away after finishing up on 18 and was joined by his girlfriend Jena Sims, who was there to celebrate with him.

There was a slightly awkward moment for those watching on TV as FOX’s Joe Buck incorrectly identified Koepka’s girlfriend as Becky Edwards, a pro soccer player. Those two actually broke up, and Koepka’s new girlfriend is Sims, who is an actress.

Luckily color commentator Brad Faxon was there to correct things:

The mistake is understandable as Koepka and Edwards appeared to be dating as of December, though they’re obviously no longer together. Likewise, the only clue that Sims has given on social media about the two being in a relationship is this photo she shared on Saturday:

It's par-tee time!

Faxon later said he only knew about Koepka’s new girlfriend thanks to a tip from a friend and Koepka telling him in secret.
