I couldn’t figure this one out. One of the hottest Google searches right now is Chris Cooley. A lot of people were talking about how he was recently married to Christy Oglevee. Considering Cooley is the Redskins’ good-but-not-great tight end who gives non-football fans little to no reason to know who he is, I figured that Christy Oglevee must be a celebrity. Perhaps this is football’s new version of the Kris Benson and Anna Benson marriage. (By the way, Google Kris Benson and the first thing that comes up are three provocative photos of his wife.)
All I had read about Christy Oglevee was that she was really hot. So, to find out who exactly she was (and, admittedly, just how hot she is) I Googled her. You know what I found? Websites and news about her new husband.
Apparently, Christy Oglevee is a former Redskins cheerleader who is now famous simply for being Cooley’s wife. There is a little spice added on in that she was fired after her relationship with the tight end was discovered. Bu still, this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Chris Cooley is not Tom Brady. He’s not even Jeremy Shockey. Why is his social life considered such hot gossip news? Christy Oglevee is indeed “hot,” but so are hundreds of other women married to professional athletes. And the cheerleader story is indeed juicy, but this is so long after the fact (Oglevee was fired before the start of last season, and news of their relationship became public then too). I’m still a little perplexed.
Then again, maybe my perplexity will disappear after I ask myself why I just chose to give the Chris Cooley marriage story attention.
