"The answer is yes," Ponder said after the Vikings practice. Although Ponder admitted to deleting at least one tweet to Steele, he did tweet a picture of a Disney princess with the message, "I was surprised to see @Samantha_Steele in Target today." Ponder said he and Steele started dating when he was part of an ESPN college game-day set at Florida State. "I have bragging rights, I believe." Rudolph ribbed Ponder while he was conducting an interview on the subject and continued later when asked about the relationship, agreeing that Ponder "definitely out-kicked his coverage." Rudolph and Ponder are roommates when the Vikings travel, and the tight end has gotten to know Steele over the past two months. Follow Viking Update on Twitter and discuss this topic on our message boards."We've kind of been intentionally trying to keep it private. Asked who out-punted their coverage, Ponder joked: "I did, obviously. Yeah, I out-punted my coverage for sure." Ponder and Steele were able to keep the relationship under wraps for weeks, but now that it made the news, he's said he's proud of it. "During training camp he started talking to her a little bit and it was just one of those things. "They are both extremely driven and successful people.

So I walked outside, and I look over to the balcony area and he put “Marry Me” in Christmas lights into the ground. We drove the 20 minutes to Hudson or whatever it was, walked in, got married. We get way more attention than we ever deserve or need or want, because of our jobs. One of the guys texted Christian and asked, “Dude, where are you at? BS: You mentioned earlier how Christian deals with criticism. SP: (Laughs.) I never was really a girl who planned out what my wedding would be, what my dress would look like. When we got married, he picked me up at the airport and I was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt and a hat. That night after we had our Arby’s, we forgot the offensive line had an Ugly Sweater Party at a local restaurant. We were trying to keep it quiet until the end of the season, and then some people said some things over in Hudson.SP: I don’t like him to know this because I try not to compliment him, really, ever. Look, you get to the point where you’ve dated enough and you know yourself well enough. I think over time you kind of grow more and more numb to it. BS: You’ve been a studio co-host and sideline reporter for ESPN. SP: I wanted to be the local reporter for the Phoenix Suns.I knew what I was looking for, and I certainly knew what I wasn’t looking for. BS: Would you describe your courtship as whirlwind? At the same time, when it’s about your family, you feel different. I thought that would have been the greatest job ever. BS: What is the best story in college football right now?By marrying the Vikings’ Christian Ponder, she also became known as a quarterback’s wife. I’m telling you, the thought that someone having a wife or girlfriend … People forget they play football at a professional level, but everybody has got a girlfriend or a wife or whatever. The thing that was funny to me was people saying, “This was a distraction.” Like I said, we went to Hudson to get married. I knew the comments that were going to be made and the questions about my credibility and all that kind of stuff.
BS: How long into dating him did you know Christian was the one? I was confident in the kind of man he was and is and knew what I was looking for. I think that’s one of the hardest things about what this transition has been for me. But when it all of a sudden was about my husband, that felt different. That does not make hearing just hateful things about your spouse any easier. November 2012: ESPN personality Samantha Steele on the sidelines during Big East conference football action between the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Louisville Cardinals in Piscataway, New Jersey. There were little things like that pointing to maybe this is a different kind of guy.
BS: And that’s when you went to Wisconsin to be married in a civil ceremony?
It was an opportunity for me to prove to him this is not as easy as you think.
I could tell pretty much immediately who wasn’t the one. I’m like, “Why is this old Florida State quarterback messaging me? I don’t have exact dates when we started talking on Twitter. SP: It didn’t feel like that to me, but my life was like that. He does a really good job of not letting people’s opinions upset who he is. If you’re a dentist, when you get home, do you want to sit around and talk about teeth? This is so far beyond what my dreams were for myself. SP: The best story is, college football is about to start.
With Christian, immediately, I didn’t already know he wasn’t the one. I’ve heard people say, “When you know, you know.” That’s really how it went down for us. This is weird.” He was always asking me random questions about living in Austin. He doesn’t come home after a game and, if somebody says he sucks, all of a sudden treats me differently. I’m so sick of Johnny Manziel signing this and this guy signing this.
