Vikings Ponder marries ESPNs Steele
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder confirmed Wednesday that he married ESPN reporter Samantha Steele on Monday in a Wisconsin courthouse ceremony.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and ESPN reporter Samantha Steele have tied the knot.
Ponder confirmed on Wednesday that the two were married at a courthouse in Wisconsin on Monday.
A Minnesota quarterback getting married in Wisconsin? Ponder says he knows some Vikings fans won't be happy that their quarterback decided to get married across the border, but he was just trying to keep it quiet.
He says they wanted to get married before the holidays "and for some other personal reasons" and that it will not distract him from the game against Houston on Sunday. Ponder calls it the biggest game of his career, with the Vikings chasing down a playoff berth.
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he's happy for Ponder and not at all concerned about the timing.
