Christian Ponder is no longer one of Minnesota's most eligible bachelors. Not only does the Vikings quarterback have his team at 4-2, but his personal life seems to be going just as well. In a tweet Thursday, Ponder confirmed to the world that he is dating ESPN college football sideline reporter Samantha Steele. A fan tweeted "Is @cponder & @Samantha_Steele dating? If not, they should. Noles" About a half hour later, Ponder responded "@kking @samantha_steele actually yes they are". It's quite the catch for Ponder as Steele has quickly become a heartthrob since her quick rise to becoming ESPN's Thursday night football sideline reporter and host of the first hour of "College GameDay." Steele, 26, was one of the first hires at ESPN's Longhorn Network in 2011. She added the additional college football duties last summer.
