You know the whole “jumping the gun” thing? Yes, that’s totally what could be happening here, but allow me that in the case of Sanaa Lathan and Colin Kaepernick.
Late Saturday night, Sanaa Lathan posted a picture of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and her looking rather “chummy.” She captioned it, “@kaepernick7 xoxo.” By looking very closely at the picture (Inspector Gadget style), they look like they’re at dinner and not just randomly taking a picture at a party. Further searching and sleuthing on the internet resulted in finding a full picture of the night and they were, indeed, at dinner (you’ll have to find that one on your own though).
A few minutes later, Kaepernick re-grammed the picture with the caption, “@sanaalathan this.”
Sounds like this could be the making of something, right? Yes, I thought so too.
In response to the, “Isn’t she older than him” question that I know is coming, the answer is yes. Sanaa is 42 and Colin is 25 (he’ll be 26 in November) so there’s a 16 plus year age difference.
By the way, there’s also this video of them two months ago at Colin’s Espys party (it’s obviously super quick and you have to squint, but Sanaa is in the green dress and Colin is in the red jacket in front of her ):
So maybe this is something and maybe this is nothing, but the picture is super cute. They’d be cute…at least for a little while.
