Kim Kardashian and beauty queen Candice Crawford may not be playing the field at the moment – but they'll certainly watch their respective Dallas Cowboy hunks from their suite at the Alamodome stadium in San Antonio, Texas.

Talk about a fan base: The cowgirls visited their boyfriends at work on Sunday, as the players hit the field at the Cowboys' training camp. Crawford is dating quarterback (and Jessica Simpson ex) Tony Romo and Kardashian is cozying up with wide receiver Miles Austin (who is not her first NFL beau).

"I almost swallowed my sandwich," team owner Jerry Jones tells the Associated Press about his run-in with Kardashian. "No – it's good to have her here."

Is Rihanna Giving Matt Kemp a Jessica Simpson Curse?

It could have been a big day for Matt Kemp. His Dodger team was at home in Los Angeles on Sunday playing the Yankees on national television.

But when the starting lineup was announced, Kemp was on the bench.

The star outfielder is in a serious slump, hitting only .196 in the month of June with just one home run in the last 22 games. He's been screwing up while running the bases and stumbling defensively.

"Tony is great, still a friend of mine," said Simpson, who admitted to regularly watching Cowboys games. "I still look at his cute butt in the outfit – uniform."

The Biggest Players of the Year

Originally posted 12/29/2009 11:15AM

Admit it, there's no greater spectator sport than witnessing the hookups, the breakups and the oh-so-cute offspring of sports stars and their bombshell, celebrity mates. Find out who ranks (from 0 to 100) as the biggest players of 2009, and which sport ultimately reigns supreme:

Football

MVP: Talk about a touchdown. This year, the Colts' wide receiver Hank Baskett had more than his 15 minutes of fame when he married former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson, becoming the costar of her E! reality TV show Kendra. The couple's June 27 nuptials at the Playboy Mansion were only surpassed by the televised birth of their son, Henry Randall Baskett IV (aka Lil' Hank) on Dec. 11. While his professional sports career is less storied than his off-field antics, for dating, marrying and squiring a son with Wilkinson, Basket gets 100 in our ratings scale.

Honorable Mention: Tom Brady sure knows how to play the field. The New England Patriots quarterback wed Gisele Bündchen on Feb. 26 in Santa Monica, and the newlyweds welcomed son Benjamin, on Dec. 8. He joked, "No Sundays," when Bündchen asked him when she could give birth. Good thing she delivered on a weekday, enabling Brady to make it to the playoffs and earning him 75 points.

Jessica Simpson is "bummed" about her split from quarterback Tony Romo, but "it's the best thing for her," according to a source close to the singer.

"[Tony] wanted her to be a house mom and be in Dallas, and he wants to go out and play – and not just football," says the source.

Additionally, the source says Simpson and Romo's relationship started to deteriorate toward the end of their time together. "It's been tough for her. Tony had his eyes on everyone but her towards the end," the source tells PEOPLE. "But let's not forget they lasted for a long time and he stuck with her even though the fans didn't like her."

Although Romo has been linked to another woman – Natalie Smith – in reports, Smith's father John, the associate athletic director at Eastern Illinois University, has denied rumors that the pair are an item.

"Tony's a friend, and I wouldn't flirt with a buddy's girlfriend," Chesney tells PEOPLE. "More importantly, Jessica was just being sweet and there was nothing else to it. It's not funny. There were no problems. Everybody got along great. After the party, everybody went their own way and nobody thought anything more about it. Period. End of story."

"His breakup brought all these rumors and stories and it is not true," says John Smith, the associate athletic director at Romo's alma mater, Eastern Illinois University.

Smith admits that Romo and Natalie met up for lunch in Dallas last week, but says his entire family – including his wife and three daughters – have "always been friends" with Romo since he was in college.
