Date Like A Celebrity: Jason Sudeikis Has Got Gameby Anonymous on January 04, 2012
You go, Jason Sudeikis. How is this pretty regular-looking funny man racking up the chicks? After parting ways with his 30 Rock-writer wife, he was tied to January Jones (and may or may not be her baby daddy), and has been connected to a string of big-time babes since they split. His latest conquest — Olivia Wilde. And how is he woo-ing the girl who just divorced a prince? By taking her to a basketball game. And if a basketball game can get Sudeikis Olivia Freaking Wild, we think it can do magic for you, too.
The Celebs: Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis
Their Epic Date: Jason showed his adorable midwestern side by taking Olivia to root for the home basketball team, the Kansas City Jayhawks. The two looked not entirely disturbed by appearing on the jumbotron, taking occasional photo-ops, and appearing like any other couple at a sporting event would. There were no obnoxious courtside antics or sectioned off revelry in box seats here, just a couple sitting in seats with the masses. And it obviously worked, because now the pair have reached the Hollywood romance phase of talking/walking.

At-Home Version: “How about we. . . get our fan on at a game.”
How to Make the Magic Happen: Find a team and get down to business. Here’s a secret, men of America — just like not all dudes of the world salivate at the idea of sports, not all women balk at the idea of going to a game. Either way, the fun is in relaxing and enjoying a day no matter how hard-core of a sports fan you may be. Find someone who has a marginal interest in sports and embrace the fun of just hanging out in the bleachers. Buy some popcorn. Cheer unabashedly. Pay about 80 percent attention. Relax.
A-List Attire: This is a sporting event, so dress appropriately. You don’t have to go out and buy a Starter jacket of your date’s team, but it doesn’t hurt to don the teams colors or show awareness of where you’re going. Girls, this isn’t the time for ridiculous sex pot outfits. Even a vixen like Olivia Wilde knew that sometimes it’s more adorable to rock a slightly gooberish hat.
Hollywood Dialogue: Note — you are not an ESPN announcer, nor do you need to be. Showing off a few stats here and there is fine, and it’s great to actually clarify the game if she has questions. But don’t spend the entire game giving an in-depth analysis. Instead, focus on your date. Ask them about their favorite sports or athletes, even if it’s based on mascot or color alone. There is an exception to this rule: If you are both heavy into shop talk, have at it. Discuss the finer points and percentages of the NBA draft. Just don’t feel like it’s required.
And there you have it. You don’t have to be Hollywood’s hottest “regular” dude to enjoy a wholesome time at seeing some athletes get their sweat on, nor do you have to be megawatt gorgeous to wear a hat with a pom-pom. Get off the bench and get into the game.
