I never thought I'd follow a Canadian Women's soccer player on Twitter until I was introduced to the beautiful Kaylyn Kyle by a friend of mine. He'll be getting and excellent Christmas present.

Everywhere you looked, you saw Upton. She was in the news constantly as she did photo shoots, video shoots and everything in between. It was a great year for a girl who can't legally drink yet.

Shawn Johnson retired from gymnastics only to make a comeback in an attempt to qualify for the 2012 Olympic squad. Unfortunately, she fell short and retired last June. However, that doesn't mean we didn't get to see what an incredibly beautiful woman she has become.

Morgan is probably the most popular lady on the USWNT. Her goal against Canada saved the match for the team and it was a great moment. It was even better because Morgan is a stone cold fox.

Women do not like to be made fun of. The Cope twins certainly fit that bill. After Kevin Harvick called the girls out for their lack of driving skills, they took to Twitter to rip into him. Wish we should have had visuals of them enraged.

Jones is an adult film star who made headlines in 2011 when she took a picture with Rob Gronkowski. In 2012, she appeared again with a new photo and some Twitter posts. They didn't last long, but I am sure that Gronk wasn't very happy.

Although this fight won't happen until 2013, watching Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate square off is going to be big for the UFC. There are going to be a lot of people who tune in to watch these two go at it. Could it create a new fan base?

It appears love was in the air in 2012. Athletes are getting married. Some of them are expected while others sent everyone for a loop. Hope Solo and Jerramy Stevans' marriage just seems to have disaster written all over it.

Lolo was all over the news this year and a lot of it had to deal with sex or her lack of it. In an interview, she revealed that she was still a virgin and it led to a lot of speculation. One of the stranger moments of the year.

It's hard to believe but this team keeps cranking out gold medals. The duo brought home gold from London this summer and they looked amazing in the process. I know I took time out of my day to watch them compete.

It seemed 2012 was also ripe for broadcasters changing channels. Erin Andrews and Michelle Beadle both jumped ship from ESPN. Andrews went to FOX and Beadle went to NBC. Don't worry, this meant ESPN could work in some fresh new talent.

Durant has himself a soft side. After throwing an errant pass into the stands that hit a fan, he decided to make it up to her. It may have been odd at the time, but the moment was pretty touching.

Some people will not appreciate this, but Matthews had the best sack dance of the year so far. He paid tribute to wrestler Val Venis with somewhat of a sensual dance. With it if you dare.

Every so often there is a drop dead gorgeous blonde softball player from a major university who captivates the sports world. Ok, so that happens a lot, but that doesn't water down the fact Jace Williams is insanely attractive, and on Instagram.

When everyone shut themselves in their rooms and cried over ESPN losing Erin Andrews, we were quickly comforted by Samantha Steele taking over the mothership by storm. Steele's story from ESPN restaurant hostess to sideline reporter makes it that much cooler, and now she's even married to Christian Ponder.

Jeter and Minka Kelly reportedly had a romantic getaway in January, but nothing came of it. Any reason to put Minka on a list is good enough for me.

I'm convinced HBO's 'Hard Knocks' only had the Miami Dolphins on their show because of Lauren Tannehill. Seriously. Just look at this picture. What else to you need to market?
