It never fails that a superstar girlfriend emerges from the MLB playoffs year after year. Last year it was Larisa Fraser, girlfriend of Ryan Braun, that stole the Internet’s heart. Here’s your 2012 contender for that crown: Lauren Gardner (@LGRed).
You might remember Gardner from BC’s 2011 ‘Next Erin Andrews’ series. That post was followed by a job working sidelines in the Lingerie Football League and ultimately being hired this year by the CBS Sports Network as a sideline reporter.
That’s not the only big news for the former Denver Broncos cheerleader. At some point she also started dating Reds reliever Sam LeCure. Normally that wouldn’t be a major story, but combine MLB WAGs, the MLB playoffs and a sideline reporter and that’s a story. That’s a possible Larisa Fraser waiting to happen.
This is the time of year when TBS is looking for wives and girlfriends holding their hands over their mouths as their significant other is facing a bases loaded jam with 1 out and the tying run is on third. You’ve been warned, TBS. Lauren is your girl.
You might remember Game One of the Reds-Giants series when Johnny Cueto left the game in the first inning. Who came in? LeCure (1.2 innings, 1 hit).
Don’t say we didn’t warn you guys. Gardner-LeCure. The MLB playoffs power couple to have your eyes on.
