“This has been a difficult decision for Rhonda and me, but after 10 years of marriage we have decided to separate,” Aikman said in a statement at the time.

The first quarter starts, then the second—and he remains hunched over on the locker room bench, trying to get his shoes on his feet.

In one Brut commercial Aikman plays a game of pickup football in a park with some friends, but instead of hitting the open receiver, he allows himself to be sacked by a young woman playing for the other team.

TMZ reported in November 2011 that the divorce was finalized in April 2011. It was reported by Bused Coverage that the two attended Joe Buck’s wedding together.
