In the Cowboys' thrilling win over the Dolphins on Thursday, Jason Witten had four catches for 43 yards, zero touchdowns and one cheerleader. When running out of bounds in the first play of the fourth quarter, Witten's 6-foot-6, 265-lb. frame couldn't stop running in time to avoid a gaggle of cheerleaders. Though most of the women run away in time, one cheerleader can't avoid Witten's arm.
This could be the start of a romantic comedy. He is the bad boy football player who needs the love of a good woman. She is the cheerleader who can't stand the game, but just wants to dance. They start out hating each other, but one day, their hate turns into love. "Love on the Gridiron," starring Bradley Cooper and Jessica Alba, coming to theaters everywhere this spring!
Except, Witten is married with two sons, and the Cowboys enforce a zero tolerance non-fraternization policy between players and cheerleaders. Whatever. Hollywood has never let the facts get in the way of a good story before, so why start now?
