Olympian Lolo Jones attended last Sunday's Detroit Lions game at Ford Field, as we first discovered when punter Ben Graham tweeted a picture of himself with her. The speculation about why she was at the game revolved around defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who was at the Drake Relays in April with Jones. When asked why Suh was there, she explained that they share the same agent and have known each other for a few years.

After showing up on the sideline of Sunday's Lions game, reported that Jones is actually dating Suh. The story didn't take much time to blow up, and it didn't take Jones much time to issue a denial of the report to ESPN Playbook.

"We are not currently dating," said Jones, who is preparing along with other Olympians for their visit Friday to the White House. "However, if the Lions win the Super Bowl and he wants to use the ring to propose to me, then we'll see."

I could get on board with that plan, if only because it means the Lions will be Super Bowl champions.
