Rob Gronkowski Had a Great Weekend

Everyone's idea of a good time is different. If judging a bikini contest and motorboating a random girl appeals to you, then you would've enjoyed being Rob Gronkowski over the weekend.

With the NHL Playoffs in full swing, I thought Mara Teigen (girlfriend of Buffalo Sabres star Evander Kane) deserved some love. Since I'm nothing if not a journalist, I reached out to Mara with questions. (Click here for full-size version.)

Congrats on being Hot Clicks Lovely Lady of the Day. Where does this rank among your career achievements?

Thank you! It is truly an honor! Sports Illustrated has always been my favorite swim magazine! To be the lovely lady of the day is hopefully a step to one day modeling for Sports Illustrated, so it ranks pretty high ;) 

Where did you grow up? What were you like in high school?

I grew up in Las Vegas. In high school, I was pretty quiet but had my good group of friends. It was a fun experience!

On average, how many times do you get hit on in a week?

If I'm alone (which is rare!), guys may try to approach me but I never give them any attention. Sorry!

You're dating Evander Kane. How did you two meet?

SI Recommends

Evander and I met in New York when he had a game there and I was living there at the time. Our first date was at a basketball game in Madison Square Garden. It was Knicks vs. Bulls. 

Does he make you watch hockey? Do you make him watch The Bachelor (or whatever you watch)

He doesn't make me watch hockey, but I have been to quite a few games since we have been dating. I really enjoy watching him play!! It's funny you ask about The Bachelor because he is obsessed and is the one making me watch it! 

Do you get any hate from female Blackhawks fans?

I remember one time I went to his game in Chicago and I was the only fan there from the other team. So when his team would score I was the only one cheering and the girls sitting next to me were giving me the death stare! I think it's hilarious. (Click here for full-size version of gallery.)

This Should Work as Motivation

A leaked memo from Golden State's PR Department revealed plans for a media session in Oakland this afternoon after the Warriors completed their four-game sweep of Houston Monday night. Each Rockets player reportedly received a copy of it after Game 4. This isn't nearly as bad as Bill Belichick's pregame speech before Super Bowl XXXIX when he read details of the Eagles' championship parade route the team somehow let leak.
