Does getting married ruin a sideline reporter’s career? We’re about to find out as ESPN’s princess Jenn Brown, discovered by Busted Coverage back in 2009 at the Ohio State GameDay, is set to marry actor Wes Chatham on April 7, 2012. How are we so sure of this news even though TMZ, Us Weekly and the Enquirer aren’t reporting it? Because we’ve figured out where the cute couple registered for their wedding and decided the smart thing is to buy them a gift from Williams-Sonoma.
A ‘heads up’ from an ESPN insider tipped us off to the fact that Jenn has been sporting a giant rock during Thursday night games. A closer examination of the Cincinnati-N.C. State game tape when Jenn flubs the name of Cincy’s head coach – Butch Jones – the rock nearly blinded us.
It’s a HUGE moment in the evolution of the sideline reporter. Will men still be infatuated with a married Jenn Brown or does it just remind them that she’s taken and won’t be accepting their advances? Does being married reflect being old and not hip to the college game? Is Jenn Brown preparing for a career away from ESPN? This might be a sign of future job endeavors.
So many questions!
Anyway, we decided to buy the couple a tomato knife. Obviously these kids aren’t superstitious towards the ban on sharp objects for wedding gifts theory.
With shipping it was a $25 gift, second only to Kim Kardashian’s $31 napkin in our recent celebrity wedding gift giving bonanza.
No word out of the Erin Andrews camp as to how she’s taking this news. We expect this will ruffle some feathers. Looks like Pageviews and Michelle Beadle are now 1-2 in the ESPN Most Eligible Bachelorette battle.
