Here's a brief bio on Laynce Nix. Outfielder. New Phillie. Left-handed bat. Career .244 hitter. Spells his name with a "y". What's with the "y" in Laynce? I have no idea. What I do know is that the guy is married to a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.
Nix, who is from Houston, Texas, is pretty much a living, breathing caricature of a Texas athlete. He played quarterback at Midland High School in football-mad Texas. He was an all-area baseball player drafted by his home state Texas Rangers in the fourth round of the 2000 MLB draft.
And, the coup de grace, he grew up and married Cowboys cheerleader Brooke Sorenson.

According to the blog she kept for DallsCowboysCheerleaders.com (the lengths I go to for our readers) Laynce is quite the catch. She writes:
"I am engaged, and my fiancé, Laynce Nix, and I will be getting married this November! Ahh...He is my perfect man. Laynce is such a blast to be around, so smart, and so sweet. God truly blessed us with an amazing, positive, and exciting relationship."
If you are so inclined you can check out the rest of her blog posts here. She opines on everything from "Boyfriend Must Haves", her summer to-do list, "Beauty Must Haves", and her "Best Songs for a Great Cardio Workout!"
The two tied the knot in November in the Bahamas. Here's a photo of the happy couple after the ceremony.
You can check out more wedding pics courtesy of their photographer's website.

Oh, and if you are looking to get them a belated wedding gift they need one "Tonga Wine Cooler" from their Crate and Barrel wedding registry. It's in stock and ready to ship.
