Prepare to be very jealous of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder. Not only is his wife Samantha Steele (maiden name) a smoke-show sideline reporter, but her personality apparently is every man’s dream.
She likes sports, she doesn’t want an extra day of attention, and she chooses to dine at Arby’s for her wedding meal. Samantha shared the following details of her big day in an interview with the Pioneer Press’ Bob Sansevere:
“I never was really a girl who planned out what my wedding would be, what my dress would look like. Everybody’s different. When we got married, he picked me up at the airport and I was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt and a hat. We drove the 20 minutes to Hudson or whatever it was, walked in, got married. Then we went and ate Arby’s as our wedding meal. We get way more attention than we ever deserve or need or want, because of our jobs. I don’t need a day that’s all about me. I was happy to go get married. That night after we had our Arby’s, we forgot the offensive line had an Ugly Sweater Party at a local restaurant. One of the guys texted Christian and asked, “Dude, where are you at?” We went to the mall and found ugly sweaters and went to the Ugly Sweater Party. We wanted to leave early, but everybody was like, “No, don’t leave.” I’m thinking, “Gosh, we just got married.”
Don’t worry, you’re not the only one that just fell in love with Christian Ponder’s wife.
According to Shutdown Corner, the newly weds did eventually have a wedding ceremony in April and hosted a big celebration afterwards, but the point is still there: Christian Ponder’s life is better than pretty much everyone else’s.
