Hank Baskett, Kendra Wilkinson to the Indianapolis Colts

kendrahank.jpgCongratulations on your new acquisitions, Indianapolis.

Don't get me wrong, you're a fine city with a wonderfully designed street layout and a rich tradition of milk-themed celebrations. But, with today's announcement that the Colts will sign wide receiver Hank Baskett and his more famous wife Kendra Wilkinson (by extension), it would appear that the Midwest is about to get an E! makeover.

I can almost hear the shouts of joy emanating from the heart of the Hoosier state from here.

Hugh Hefner's former girlfriend weighed in on the personnel move with People magazine, where all good reporters get their NFL news.

"This is a great opportunity for Hank to be playing for the Colts. Peyton Manning is one of the best - if not the best - quarterbacks in the league, and I'm excited to see my baby kick some a--!" she says, adding: "So proud of Hank for staying strong and positive."
The couple married in June and are expecting their first baby on Christmas day.
