New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez likes his blondes like Rex Ryan likes his feet. According to the New York Post, Sanchez has been spotted squiring actress and animal-activist Hayden Panetierre around Los Angeles and Las Vegas hot spots. Sanchez might want to bone up on his fighting skills; Panetierre is currently in a long-distance relationship with heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
Never mind "Save the cheerleader, save the world," someone better save the quarterback because the title of Sanchez's next HBO reality show might be called "Hard Knockouts."
A source told the Post that "They were clearly trying to hide their affection. They used their friends as a buffer, but it didn't work so well."
The usually low-key Sanchez must like courting trouble. He was recently linked to a similar-looking 17 year-old high-schooler who alleged that she had a romance with the Jets QB. The teen, Eliza Kruger even took photos of Sanchez's tossed bed.
This time, Sanchez may have to worry less about having 'dolphin-free tuna' on his plate, while dining with Panetierre, than getting waled on himself.
Panetierre seems to fit Sanchez's type--young, blonde and petite. Besides being spotted in L.A., the couple was seen together with friends in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago.
The actress has been linked to Klitschko since last year and sources say she's "just friends" with Sanchez--who is reportedly a buddy of the heavyweight fighter.
Representatives for Panetierre had no comment and Sanchez's reps couldn't be reached by the source.
Klitschko knocked out Samuel Peter in September and is currently preparing to defend his heavyweight title against David Hyde in July.
