That was fast.
Christian Ponder’s, who met ESPN repoter Samantha Steele earlier this season, got hitched on Monday, according to the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram. Ponder and Steele were hitched in St. Croix (Wis.) County Court on Monday afternoon, according to the report.
The pair were married by Court Commissioner Stephen Dunlap following a quick engagement. Ponder proposed to Steeler with an elaborate Christmas lights setup before the Vikings hosted the Bears on Dec. 9.
The Vikings (8-6) are in the thick of the NFC playoff race but they play the Texans and Packers in the final two weeks. So, Ponder could have time for a long honeymoon soon.
