2023 is already a great year for Carl Nassib and his boyfriend Soren Dahl.
In an Instagram Story, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Nassib posted a picture of himself with his arm around former Olympic swimmer Dahl, who is adorably wearing a Nassib jersey. The NFL star wrote in the caption:
"Kicking off 2023 with my man and a trip to the playoffs."
Not only has Nassib found love, but he's also returning to the playoffs after he became the first out NFL player to play in a playoff game in 2022 while signed to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Nassib's team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, recently won the NFC South title after defeating the Panthers 30-24. Led by veteran all-time-great quarterback Tom Brady, the Bucs have a good shot to make it far in this year's playoffs.
What makes the playoff run even better is Nassib having Dahl by his side along the way.
Throughout 2022, Nassib started posting pictures with Dahl on social media, with fans identifying him as a Danish swimmer who competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Initially, the two posted pics of each other hanging out together on the beach, in a club, and at the gym. This led to new speculation about the two athletes.
Rumors got even stronger in November when Dahl shared an Instagram Story of him and Nassib that read "Weekend 11/10" and a heart emoji. Nassib then re-shared the story to his own Instagram Stories.
Nassib is famously private about his personal life, so this new post where he calls Dahl "my man" is the first time we can confirm that the two are actually more than just friends.
Dahl, and all of us, will be cheering on Nassib as he and the Buccaneers advance to the playoffs, which are scheduled to begin on January 14.
