US Weekly ran a story last week that said everyone's favorite sideline reporter was dating the Gossip Girl star (and Tony Romo's brother in law). Slowly, but surely, all the gossip sites picked it up and now the sports blogs have, too. However, Andrews told me the story is false and they are not dating.
Donald Driver Makes His Pitch
With Maria Menounos getting eliminated from Dancing with the Stars, Packers wide receiver Donald Driver finds himself in the final three and asks for the support of Hot Clicks Nation. Here's a brief Q&A I did with Driver about this situation.

SI.com: Hot Clicks has supported Maria Menounos all season, but, unfortunately, she is gone. Why should Hot Clicks Nation support Donald Driver?

Driver: I've got three reasons: 1) Hot Clicks can introduce two future LLODs to your readers, my wife Betina, and my dance parter, Peta; 2) Because of this video; 3) Because my charitable foundation needs any exposure I can get from being in the finals.

SI.com: You're a Super Bowl champion. Why is winning Dancing with the Stars so important to you?

Driver: I have always watched this show with my wife and family. The exposure has been tremendous for my charitable foundation. And now that I'm here, I may as well bring the mirror ball trophy to Titletown.

SI.com: Your partner on the show, Peta Murgatroyd, is extremely-good looking, and sometimes the dances get risque. Has this caused any problems on the homefront with the wife?

Driver: First of all, I want to say that my wife is very hot, too. She's very cool about it. I would never want to embarrass or disrespect my wife. So I've always asked Betina what she thinks about what I'm doing. She feels comfortable being at rehearsal and watching what I'm going to do. She critiques me from the beginning of the rehearsal to the end of the rehearsal, and even when we get back home: "Baby, that?s not sexy enough. It has to be this way. I think you should do it that way." Or, "Baby, that's not emotional. You?ve got to show your face more." She's always my biggest critic, and that helps me, because I know if my wife is OK with it.

SI.com: How have your teammates reacted to your DWTS run? Have they been supportive? Have they ribbed you at all about it? Any good comments you can share?

Driver: My teammates have shown a lot of support for me, and I really appreciated Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and even Coach McCarthy, Coach Bennett and Rob Davis coming out to see me. James Jones, Ryan Pickett and a number of other teammates have visited the show as well. My single teammates want to be introduced to Peta for a future date so they have to be nice to me!

SI.com: There's a lot of speculation about your future on the field. If the Packers were to part ways with you, would you play for another team?

Driver: If "if" was a fifth, we'd all be drunk. I really don't deal in hypotheticals, and I'm just looking forward to getting back to football as a Packer later this week!

You have to love the answers Driver gave, so Hot Clicks is fully putting its support behind him to win Dancing with the Stars. You can vote for Driver by calling 1-800-868-3403.

Even though we're only in May, SportsPickle.com has a look back at all the media faux pas we've seen this year. And Sports Pickle is going to have to work hard to keep this list current, because here's a new mistake from a Los Angeles news station trying to cover the Kings' Stanley Cup run.
