Joe Thomas' wife Annie Thomas married him back in 2007 after about six months of being engaged. They're still doing all the same stuff now that they were doing back then. This guy's still only 30 years old, and they were married when they were both 23. He's still blocking dudes, and she's still coaching girls basketball. They were married in the beautiful city of Madison, Wisconsin. I've been there, and I love it. There were around 350 guests at the wedding, according to Elegant Wedding Mag. The magazine says his first impression of her was that she was beautiful, and her first impression of him was that he was huge. It lists their favorite thing to do together as "just sitting down on the couch and talking. Both of our schedules are very hectic."
The couple met at the University of Wisconsin while they were both students. If you've never read stories about how athletes meet their girlfriends and wives, then I'll let you know this is roughly how a third of them end up getting hitched. She came into the football training room to get her ankle taped up, and Joey-boy was there. He invited her to a cookout that he and his roommate were hosting for other athletes. Joe Thomas' wife Annie Thomas is now the assistant coach at Cleveland State. They've also got a young daughter whom they named Logan.
Annie was a color commentator for the Wisconsin girl's basketball team for about a year at some point. I don't know exactly how she transitioned into assistant coaching responsibilities at Cleveland State. Neither Annie nor Joe are are too hot for social media, and since Joe has been with the Browns his entire career, Annie probably figured it was a good idea to put down some roots in the coaching community. Joe's contract is worth about $43 million, by the way, so they don't have to worry about finances any time soon.
Scott Chandler's wife Alissa Chandler is the mother of his their three daughters and someone who appreciates history and old stuff. She was recently quoted as saying how much she was loving all the old homes in New England now that the family is moving there. She's said that "home isn't a specific city but rather the place where all of us are together again." Seems like a very good outlook for an athlete's wife, as they tend to travel and move a lot. Alissa's also a fan of UFC and a Ronda Rousey supporter. She even read her memoir and said she was a "fan for life" of the world's most dangerous woman.
If you've never seen an athlete's wife who is totally focused on her man, Scott Chandler's wife Alissa Chandler is a good example. She, like many proud and supportive wives, retweets everything and anything about her husband that she can find online. Much of the other things she posts are simply about how much she misses him and how little she and their daughters get to see him. She says "ten years later and he still gives me butterflies" when she posts an interview from patriots.com where he's just saying stuff like "we want to work hard and win games." Patriot player interviews can be the most boring thing on the planet because they never say anything you haven't heard one million times already. When it comes to player interviews, I think people would love to see the players' current emotional states before or after a game.
The family rented a monstrous truck in order to move out of Buffalo and into New England. Their three daughters, Lyla, Vayda and Ivy, are getting used to the moving lifestyle even though they're very young. Two of them are not even in kindergarten so it doesn't matter quite as much. Scott Chandler's wife Alissa Chandler said, "Buffalo you will always hold such a special place in my heart." That may be the first time anyone's ever said that about the city of Buffalo. You may be overdoing it a little there, Alissa.
Dashon Goldson's girlfriend Ashley North is another one of the ladies on E! Channel's show "WAGS," and she had a little breakdown recently after Dashon apparently got cold feet about their marriage. They've been together for about 11 years and have a daughter named Charly. Ashley said, "It's so hard with Charly. It's not just me and him. It's her too. It's like you are letting everyone down." What she means is that she wants a strong, stable family unit, and her being married to Dashon will provide that. She also said that what she knows about and was familiar with growing up was a husband and wife being together to form that family unit, and that's why she wants the ring on her finger.
But hey, she posted a quote online that said, "Happiness isn't about getting what you want all the time. It's about loving what you have and being grateful for it." It seems concessions have been made. Dashon Goldson's girlfriend Ashley North has said, "I really do suffer from resting bitch face. I'm really not a bitch most of the time." What she means is that when her face is at rest and without any expression, she thinks she looks like a bitchy person. I've heard other girls say this before, and I sort of know what they mean. A lot of people can get intimidated by resting bitch face because they assume the woman will be hard to talk to based on her resting face, and that's simply not true all the time. Sometimes, the only way to confirm the actual bitchiness levels are to interact with the person.
Ashley North is a successful celebrity stylist who posts a number of pictures of her client Kevin Hart. It's interesting because Kevin Hart a very short fellow and Dashon is a pretty big fellow, but I guess Kevin is a handsome and charismatic guy so there you go. Ashley also posted a quote that said: "Ladies, dating a successful man does not make you successful. Success is not sexually transmitted. Get your own so you're successful together."
