Matthew Stafford’s girlfriend Kelly Hall spent some time in Costa Rica this week while the Detroit Lions quarterback continues to prepare for the 2013 season. Fortunately for all of us, she made just enough of her vacation public to keep us entertained.

My favorite moment that Hall captured in Costa Rica was a toss-up between the dancing video you see above and a picture of a pretty waterfall, but I decided to go with the pool dancing — or “drunk modeling” as she referred to it in her description. There was just no way I could pass up her variation of the “cat daddy” dance and the Ace of Base blaring in the background.

And that’s not all. A certain someone even chimed in in the comments section. No, it wasn’t Stafford:

That’s right, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper took some time out of his busy schedule — which includes repairing his image in the wake of this incredibly racist outburst — to enjoy Hall’s video just as much as we did.

PS: How lucky is Stafford? His play on the field this year had better reflect how fantastic his personal life seems to be.

Now, I bring that up only to awkwardly segue into this. Friday, the reigning American League MVP turned...
