Hot Clicks: Samantha Steele, Christian Ponder podcast

The Hot Clicks Podcast
Christian Ponder, Samantha Steele

If you've read Hot Clicks over the past several weeks you know that Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and ESPN reporter Samantha (Steele) Ponder had a busy December in which they got engaged and married. The couple joined the Hot Clicks Podcast Monday afternoon to talk about their relationship, how they tried (but failed) to keep the engagement and marriage under wraps, reaction from people about their whirlwind romance (she's NOT pregnant) and much more. Other highlights: Ponder's nickname for Steele early in their relationship, Ponder's frustration that Steele has more Twitter followers and whether Ponder actually asked Steele to marry him, or just told her that they were getting hitched. You can listen to the podcast below, download it on iTunes or download it to your mp3 player.
