The following celebrities love to play the field.

Or the basketball court. Or sometimes the ice hockey rink.

In light of Eliza Dushku recently splitting from Rock Fox - along with Chantel Jeffries going clubbing in Houston with Johnny Manziel - the THG staff asked our research department to come up with a list of famous celebrities who have gotten it on with big-time athletes.

Some were flings. Others are marriages that remain intact to this day. And one resulted in a popcorn-based example of PDA that will forever be seared into our memory.

Click around now and be reminded of the actresses, reality stars and models who have had front row, naked seats to some of the hottest sports action around...

Kim Kardashian
Kanye West is the exception, not the rule. Kim Kardashian has gotten it on with Reggie Bush, Miles Austin and Kris Humphries.

One of the perks of being a pro athlete? The paycheck. At least, to those of us who don't play professional sports, making $5 million a year to play football seems like a pretty okay gig.

Another perk of that job? The athletes would probably say it's the hot wives and girlfriends.

Until they find out that their wives and girlfriends make more money than they do. 

But some guys, like Hank Baskett and Gerard Pique don't seem to care that their wives are bringing home the bacon. They're all... enlightened or something.

(Or they just like the money and don't care who makes it. That's probably it.)

Here are 9 athletes who make LESS money than their wives or girlfriends:

Modeling It Girl Kate Upton is apparently reminding some sports fans of another famous blonde, Jessica Simpson. Why? Look at their impact on players!

The Sports Illustrated beauty is rumored to be dating Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander, arguably the best pitcher in all of Major League Baseball ...

... who promptly got shellacked in Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Rumors immediately began flying that Upton was to blame for his effort - just as Dallas Cowboys fans once blamed another blonde for Tony Romo's woes.

  • Jess Simpson

Simpson was notably on hand (in a pink Romo jersey) for some of his worst games in a Dallas uniform, leading fans to label her a curse, jinx, and worse.

"Kate Upton and Justin Verlander? Suddenly everything makes sense," read a headline in the Los Angeles Times, calling her "the only logical explanation."

An Examiner headline hilariously read after the pitcher got rocked, "Kate Upton's bikini body blamed for Justin Verlander's poor All-Star Game inning."

If he was envisioning her Cat Daddy video or even just Kate Upton bikini photos, it would be easy to see why. But it gets better than this one incident:

Before Verlander, Upton was previously linked to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, a long-touted prospect who has since become mediocre.

Think about it ... how could anyone focus. Fortunately for Jess' fiance, former NFL player Eric Johnson, his career was already over when they got together.

The real question: Who'd you rather ...
