J.J. Watt, Caroline Wozniacki sitting together? That's March Madness

Let the rumor mill start churning: J.J. Watt and Caroline Wozniacki sat together at the NCAA title game

NFL defensive player of the year J.J. Watt and tennis superstar Caroline Wozniacki sat next to each other Monday night at the NCAA basketball title game between Duke and Wisconsin.

Maybe they just happened to randomly get placed right next to each other by StubHub. They might not even know each other.

Now we all know why Watt was there. He played football for the Badgers in 2009 and 2010 before being drafted in the first round by the Houston Texans.

Wozniacki has been known to pop up at various sporting events. As far as this particular sporting event is concerned, who knows? Maybe she was invited by a friend.

Or possibly a special friend?

This is probably where most other blog posts on this very important subject matter are mentioning that Wozniacki was once engaged to golf star Rory McIlroy until he very publicly broke it off last year.

And just six months ago, Watt was lamenting that his dedication to football left him little or no time for a girlfriend -- although he did add, "If I find the right girl and she steals my heart, then it might be a different story."

OK, enough beating around the bush. Are they a couple or not? Well, let's take a glance at Wozniacki's Twitter account. Aha! Check out what she tweeted Tuesday morning: "I would classify yesterday as amazing!"

I guess that about says it all. What else could she be referring to but an ultra-romantic evening watching a bunch of dudes running up and down the court? It's not like she spent the rest of Monday hanging out with the president of the United States or anything.
