Andy Dalton’s wife Jordan Jones was the impetus for a very unexpected answer to an interview question. In a pre-draft interview with Sports Illustrated, Andy was asked a very simple, almost flippant question, “What’s your favorite hobby?”
Andy’s answer? Spending time with Jordan.
If you’re a longtime reader of this site, or you’re one of the unfortunate people who happen to know the guys running this site, then you know that we’re both married. We obviously both love our wives, and let’s not kid ourselves, we’d be lost without them. There’s no debate about that. However, even if it’s true, neither one of us would ever admit so when posed with that question.
As a matter of fact, I just texted BigRed to find out how he’d answer that question.
thinds: What’s your favorite hobby?
BigRed: Making money… maybe drinking
So apparently Andy Dalton is more comfortable, and way less of a capitalistic dick or problem drinker than either one of us. That shouldn’t be any surprise. After all, Andy is a successful NFL quarterback and we just run a blog writing about successful NFL quarterbacks and their wives. That said, if either of us were married to Andy Dalton’s wife – that might change how we felt.
Andy and Jordan had been dating for a while at TCU (Texas Christian University) together, and were married on July 9, 2011. Actually, after seeing their wedding website, this couple goes down for having the largest wedding party I’ve ever seen with 9 Bridesmaids/Maids of Honor, 11, groomsmen/best men, 5 ushers, and 3 house parties. I don’t even know what the hell a house party is. The couple also cleaned up on their registries at Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Dillards and Bed, Bath & Beyond. Andy and Jordan’s wedding party actually exceeds Joe Flacco’s wedding party – and that was so epic he basically fielded an entire offensive football team (his wife was the center, not sure what that says).
