Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting is apparently counting on a marriage that will last a lifetime, committing to a tattoo commemorating the day she became Mrs. Ryan Sweeting. The actress and the tennis player got engaged only three months after meeting, and were married about three months after that in a New Year's Eve ceremony. It's that Dec. 31, 2013, date that's commemorated in Roman numerals tattooed between her shoulder blades. Cuoco-Sweeting, 28, gave the world a peek Saturday night in an exhibition tennis match that saw them wearing coordinating hot-pink-and-black tennis gear.

Austin. The bad news is that, if they survive to advance to the Sweet 16, waiting for them will be the familiar bite of Florida.
