BREAKING NEWS: Candace Parker is no longer a single woman.

For this reporter, the dream is gone. Candace is no longer on the market, her new fiance, Sheldon Williams of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks--formerly of Duke fame--has beaten me to the punch, asking for Parker's hand in marriage. And the 6-foot-5 Player of the Year and one of People Magazine's Most Beautiful People said yes.

And I died a little inside.

As I try to pick up the pieces, one has got to wonder if Parker couldn't do a little better for herself. Don't get me wrong, I am sure Sheldon Williams will make a wonderful husband and the driveway pick-up games, not to mention the super basketball offspring that will come from this union, will be sensational.

But Candace, come are one of the beautiful people and Sheldon has a forehead the size of a backboard. It's not even a forehead, so much as a five-head.

But I digress, Williams will be an excellent NBA player for years to come and between the pair no husband-wife combo can stand in their way of winning the 2008 couples basketball championship.

I hope it is a long engagement, she's still very young. This is not a marriage I would have predicted in the visual context.

But I also believe that love comes from within, and I wish them the best.
