NY Daily News Staff Writer Believes Brooklyn Decker Is ‘Little Known’

Whaaaaaa?

Obviously, we are all now aware that Brooklyn Decker has landed the heralded spot as the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl.

Any reason to publish the above photo is good enough for me, but even more than that, a tidbit mentioned in an article by New York Daily News staff writer Soraya Roberts greatly perplexed me.

Her husband, tennis star Andy Roddick, usually steals the spotlight but Monday night all eyes were on Brooklyn Decker.

The sports star’s little known 22-year-old wife was unveiled as the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl on “The Late Show With David Letterman.”

Little known? What the fungus? Who doesn’t know who Brooklyn Decker is? I would speculate that Brooklyn Decker is just as well-known in many segments of the population as her tennis-playing husband.

Sure, the particular segments of the population I am referring to generally consist of gawking, slack-jawed, internet perverts who spend way too much time drooling over photos of women on the web, but still. I guess I have to reluctantly include myself in that group since I know who she is, but it’s nice to have a sense of belonging, am I right?

Anyhoo, congrats to Brooklyn Decker. We’re all very, very happy for her. Especially one Soraya Roberts – she is pretty confident that this was just the break you needed to really jump start her struggling career.
