David Nelson's Cowboys Cheerleader Girlfriend Was Happy For The Ball

In our weekly NFL chat yesterday we speculated that Kelsi Reich, David Nelson's girlfriend and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader who received the TD ball Sunday, might not be happy with Nelson for putting her in the uncomfortable position of being outed as the girlfriend of an opposing player.

That doesn't seem to be the case.

Nelson said after the game that he wanted to make an even bigger display but muted himself because of the score.

It was special. Honestly, I wanted to do more. I wanted it to be a little more special, but being down 14, I didn't feel like I want to do too much more because I'm not that kind of person. If it would have been a better situation I would have done a little bit more, but you know, being down 14, I'm not going to celebrate too much, so the situation wasn't right.

Nelson, of course, is also from Dallas, so the whole occasion was filled with personal significance. You can see the video of the episode again after the jump.
