Christian Ponder works quick.  Not exactly on the football field, but off it.  We found out in October that he was dating ESPN reporter Samantha Steele.  Then on December 4 we found out via twitter they got engaged.  Now they are married.  Little quicker than the usual engagement huh? Minnesota Vikings quarterback  Christian Ponder and ESPN reporter  Samantha Steele were married late  Monday afternoon in St. Croix County Court, according to court officials. Ponder, 24, and Steele, who turned 27 last week, were married by Court Commissioner Stephen Dunlap. via LT Not exactly the dream wedding for Mrs. Ponder, but hey, their jobs don't exactly leave much time for a romantic get away wedding.  The Minnesota Vikings are in the middle of the NFC wild card picture, and Samantha is getting ready to get into the college football bowl season.  Pretty time consuming lives.  We're guessing when it's all over, they will probably spend a pretty penny on a nice honeymoon.
