Good news: Now you can get that paninni maker out of the closet that you gave Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries as a wedding gift (returned by court order), and re-gift it to Eric Decker and Jessie James. The Broncos’ wide receiver and the country singer are gettin’ hitched. There’s the ring in the photo. And there’s a guy in a black shirt who’s a little too excited about the entire thing. And here are the tweets announcing the big news:

For those who don’t know, Decker had 44 catches for 612 yards and eight TDs this past season, and one carry for one yard. Jessica James, 23, had her biggest hit, Wanted, in 2009. My favorite sentence from her Wikipedia page:

By age nine, she had already been writing songs on a plastic guitar and performed at SeaWorld and a Republican Convention.[2]

James’ main project, besides the wedding? I’m guessing it’s to convince Decker to switch sports — he was drafted by the Brewers in 2008 and the Twins in ’09.
