The first thing you need to know is that there's an annual Hooters swimsuit pageant that's judged by C-list celebrities like Dan Cortese and Verne Troyer, and whose winner receives the title Miss Hooters International.
The next thing you need to know is that New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker is now engaged to Anna Burns, Miss Hooters International 2005.
Welker proposed sometime after Christmas, according to the Boston Herald. The newspaper reports Anna asked for a Cartier bracelet and received a diamond ring instead. The couple have been together for two years. The Herald goes on to write:
Anna was by her boo's side for his surgery and rehab, and the two have been living together ever since. He makes her breakfast in bed. She made him flannel pajamas with cowboy boots on them for Christmas. He says she thinks his biggest flaw is, "I don't sleep enough." (Well, that's Wes' story and he's stickin' to it ...)
Eggs in bed, flannel PJs with cowboy footies, a direct line to Dan Cortese and a pageant-winning swimsuit model who probably gets free 3 Mile Island buffalo wings for life? And you thought landing on the same roster as Tom Brady was the best thing that ever happened to Wes Welker!
