Matt Ryan’s wife Sarah Ryan is a former high school basketball legend. Before she settled down with Matt, she tore up the Maine basketball record books. Boston College recruited Sarah, and she started as a point guard for three years. The couple met at BC while both were ripping it up. In fact, they met in the weight room while they were pumping iron. Maybe Sarah was posing provocatively to catch his eye?
Now, Matt Ryan’s wife works for the Atlanta Dream (WNBA). She is officially a sponsorship sales consultant. I cannot oversell how much of a huge athlete she was in Maine: named the Maine Female Athlete of the Year back in the day. In fact, I was working at a Portland Maine news channel during her heyday – she was honestly a big deal. Fast forward to current day, where Matt and Sarah Ryan have no kids to look after yet. The couple can travel a lot, attend games, visit family and friends often. Earlier in 2016, Sarah played some golf while celebrating her friends’ wedding. I do get the sense she has a natural, competitive sports streak.
Matt and Ryan like to travel to exotic places as much as any other pro athlete with a fat wallet. I suppose the offseason is a time to explore tropical, curated paradises. Marr Ryan’s wife says she doesn’t have a short temper, she just has a quick reaction to bullshit. I like that description because it captures her well. Mrs. Ryan seems to hang out with her mother in Maine whenever she can. The two of them engaged in some karaoke sessions, and Sarah posted them on her social media. There is a movie called “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and Sarah likes to make jokes about the billboards the campaign employed. The billboards featured huge messages saying, “My mom always hated you, Sarah Marshall.” In conclusion, It’s an honor to one’s name featured in a full-length motion picture!
