Christian Ponder confirms marriage
He says they wanted to get married before the holidays "and for some other personal reasons" and that it will not distract him from the game against Houston on Sunday. Ponder calls it the biggest game of his career, with the Vikings chasing down a playoff berth.
Coach Leslie Frazier says he's happy for Ponder and not at all concerned about the timing.
Does Frazier ever get concerned about anything?

2 things come to mind ... 1) he wanted to be able to say he was a starting QB in the NFL when he got married (so time was running out) and 2) he wanted to lose his virginity before the world ends on Friday.
Who knows, maybe this is a good thing. Maybe he'll finally throw like a man instead of a high school kid. And it won't be easy to tell if it was a distraction because he barely throws for 100 yards in most games anyway.

You guys realize that players have lives outside of the game, right?

My opinion is that he doesn't really care about football that much, and he surely ain't proving me wrong by doing what he is doing.

Players work, and put in their work, or they leave the league. I've yet to read anything about Ponder blowing off practice or not keeping his head in the books. Everything has just be speculation because he's marrying a fairly high profile person...it's celebrity gossip and and it's silly.
At the end of the day, players are still people. They still love their families and want to spend time them, and asking them not to is ridiculous.

Agreed, said punter Chris Kluwe, whose personal life regularly veers away from football-related topics.
"We have lives away from the football field," Kluwe said, "and I think I've been kind of the example of that. Football is what we do for our job, but that doesn't define us as human beings. We fall in love, get married, have kids, same as everyone else."
Kluwe said Ponder has put in the work all season to perform his best, and that won't change.
This fukstick must really think we care about what a skinny little punter for the Vikings thinks about anything. He's nothing but a self promoting bum looking for a job after football. Maybe Ann Landers... STFU Kluwe.
