Andrew Miller’s wife Katie Miller was another one of those “I getcha’ ‘cuz I lived it” types. She was a competitive soccer player at Duke. Apparently they get really competitive together whenever Duke and Andrew’s alma mater North Carolina play. As detailed in ESPN’s article, Andrew was not digging the vibe a few years back when Duke took UNC down in basketball. Andrew said, “But as hard as we try, that game was tough, I’ll be honest with you. I wasn’t in the mood to talk and hang out with her after the game. And she’s not the nicest person in the world when Carolina wins.” Geez, kinda’ makes Katie sound like a jerk.
So now who is Katie Miller, really? Well, Andrew Miller’s wife Katie is now a former Detroit, Boston, Baltimore, New York, and current Cleveland resident. In the past four years alone, Andrew and Katie have seen four AL cities between free agency and trades. This July, Andrew was shipped off to another team with a much higher chance of winning the World Series. Andrew’s old Yankee team is headed in a brand new direction. Andrew Miller’s wife cut his beard and his long hair when he went to Baltimore and New York. A drastic new look for the former cave dweller with the footlong beard. Katie was never shy about not liking the style. Andrew himself kept the style alive for a number of years, but it was time to let it go, dude.
Since everybody in the media seems to make a big deal of this, I might as well elaborate a bit more about it. Not only is Katie a Blue Devil, but father is a Blue Devil. Her mother is a Blue Devil. Her brother is a Blue Devil. Imagine what it’s like for Andrew to go over their house on a holiday when Duke is playing. If I were a competitive athlete, I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.
