SUPER BOWL MVP Tom Brady ran the ultimate quarterback sneak when he snagged model-actress Bridget Moynahan (The Recruit, The Sum of All Fears), who had been dating screenwriter Scott Rosenberg (Beautiful Girls, High Fidelity) for three years. The 5'9" Glamour and Vogue cover girl took up with the Patriots QB after being introduced to him by their mutual endorsement agent. Moynahan, 31, was unlucky in love playing Big's wife, Natasha, on Sex in the City. But Brady insisted she be his charm for the big game and flew her to Houston to cheer for him. Meanwhile, upon hearing the news of his ex's new relationship, Rosenberg said, according to the New York Post, "You'd think 20 years after high school you'd be safe from losing your girl to the quarterback."

•Talk about a wedding ring, professional boxers Nikolai Kibkalo and Natalya Karpovich tied the knot in a squared circle in St. Petersburg, Russia, last week. After exchanging vows in traditional wedding attire, the bride and groom put on the gloves and sparred a few rounds. "[It was] the most unique wedding I have ever seen," said boxer Maxim Nesterenko, who was a guest. "I'm sure they will be a very good family because they not only love each other, but also have common interests."

•To the list of memorable sporting events that have taken place in the L.A. Coliseum (the 1932 and '84 Summer Olympics, the first Super Bowl), add Lingerie Bowl I. The game, which featured two teams of models clad in skimpy, frilly shorts, brassieres, helmets and shoulder pads playing 7-on-7 tackle football, coincided with halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII. The Lingerie Bowl actually featured some real football, including a clothesline tackle on the first play that would have made Chuck Bednarik proud. "I thought it was an interesting concept when I first heard about it," said Eric Dickerson, who coached Team Dream to a 6-0 win. (Lawrence Taylor coached Team Euphoria, which was quarterbacked by former SI swimsuit model Angie Everhart.) "When I came out and saw the girls and we had our first practice, I became very interested."

He was raised on a thoroughbred and quarter horse farm in Louisiana and now owns several racehorses—including a filly called She Hate Me, who was named after Carolina receiver Rod (He Hate Me) Smart. The QB brings more to the business than horse sense. "Jake is a helluva groom," said his father, Jerry. "Those long arms of his help him to really get in there and shovel things out." ...Roger Clemens just can't shake those angry New York fans. At the Super Celebrity Fashion Extravaganza, a $l,000-a-plate charity dinner and fashion show at Houston's Downtown Aquarium last week, Clemens chatted with Yankees lover P. Diddy. "I'm not happy, man, but we'll work it, we'll work it out," P. Diddy told the new Astros ace....Paul Newman will lend his voice to the forthcoming animated Pixar movie Cars, which will also feature NASCAR legend Richard Petty and actors Bonnie Hunt and Owen Wilson.
