Athletes love dating celebrities. Even athletes you never really heard of can attract big-time celebrities. The latest example is hockey player Mike Comrie. Not a scrub, but certainly not a superstar, either. Yet the 26-year-old New York Islander was seen leaving a Santa Monica, Calif., restaurant with 19-year-old pop singer Hilary Duff. The two also spent time in Idaho jet skiing.

Get ready to see plenty of No. 81 Patriots jerseys. According to Sports Illustrated, that's the number Randy Moss has chosen to wear with the Pats.
