It's Time To Retire Paulina Gretzky From The SportsGrid WAG Spotting Pantheon
If you've been to our site before, you know that we make no excuses about one of the main drivers of our traffic: WAG ("Wife And Girlfriend") Spotting is an eternal wellspring of hits, because the Internet is primarily used as a masturbation aid -- with occasional breaks to check email, read gossip, and play games.
For years, there was no greater source of WAG content than Paulina Gretzky's Instagram and Twitter accounts -- accounts that her father, The Great One, may have asked her to shut down at one point because they were too racy. Thankfully, Paulina resumed posting scantily-clad photos of herself to the Internet soon after, and we were able to post many, many slideshows of her over the last several years.
Yet just as sunrise doesn't last all morning, so too must our one-sided love affair with Paulina come to an end. It was one thing when she married hard-partying golfer Dustin Johnson (and continued to post her bikini shots), but it appears Paulina is entering a new stage of her life, and so, too, must we:
"@djohnsonpga & i are so excited to finally share with you all our amazing news..we're having a baby!!"
Congratulations to Paulina and Dustin (whose marriage appears fine despite the fact that he was revealed to be something of a drug-addled homewrecker recently). A happy and healthy pregnancy to you both. And goodbye, Paulina. You were good to us.
Frankly, we've been looking for ways to segue slightly out of the WAG stuff, even at the cost of our traffic numbers, so this is for the best. Expect the next iteration of SportsGrid (and yes, we're working on a re-design) to feature less boobs and more, um, writing, which you probably won't read, but we challenge you to prove us wrong.
