Joe Theismann’s wife Robin Theismann is happy she never had to witness the horrible injury that led to his retirement. It was one of the most gruesome injuries ever seen on a nationally televised football game, and I’m told it’s a hard one to forget (which is why I won’t watch it). Apparently Lawrence Taylor was the one who put him down, but it was due to the awkward way he fell that caused his leg to snap and his bone to protrude and tear through his skin. Gross!
Theismann’s wife Robin Theismann is his third wife. Joe has three children from his first marriage who are all grown up now. Their names are Joe Jr., Patrick, and Amy. Joe Jr. is an assistant golf pro (not sure what that is). Joe Jr. was also charged with possession of crack cocaine back in 2002. He was sentenced in 2003 to a 10-year suspended prison term after he pled guilty to dealing cocaine. Patrick apparently works for a company that converts paper data into digital data. Amy is a mother with four kids. Robin didn’t have to raise any of those kids, as they were all adults when she married Joe. Robin and Joe have a home in Virginia, a home in Memphis, and another one in Florida.
There’s a famous quote that was floating around from the 1990’s about Joe’s second marriage. I don’t know if Robin Theismann has heard it or not, but it’s pretty funny. Joe was cheating on his second wife Jeanne Caruso Theismann in the mid 90’s, and when she asked him why he was having the affair, he allegedly responded, “God wants Joe Theismann to be happy.” That is too rich; it can’t be made up. The image of him commenting on his personal life in the third person like he was at the job at ESPN commentating for a game is entertaining. Coincidentally, I don’t know if the other woman involved in the affair turned out to be Joe Theismann’s wife Robin Theismann.
