In honor of Valentine's Day, we've spoken to a few of the players' wives, and got the inside scoop on their relationship stories, and what it's like having a professional athlete as a husband. First up is Stephanie Waldeck, wife of Machine defender Steve Waldeck.
How did you and Steve meet?
Me and Steve met in high school. He played football, and I was on the cheerleading team. We met at a pasta party before a game. So cliche, right?
Where did you two go on your first date?
Our first date was to a little Italian restaurant in town (that isn't there anymore) and then to the movies to see Friday Night Lights - still one of my favorite movies today.
3. How did Steve propose?
Steve proposed while we were ice-skating on a frozen pond in Mont Tremblant, in front of a little white church. It was freezing, and snowing, and I don't know how to ice skate, but he made it so romantic.
What are your thoughts on having a husband who is a professional athlete?
I LOVE watching Steve play for the Machine, and am so proud that he gets to live out his dream by playing his favorite sport. I'm his number one fan and biggest supporter, I know how much the game means to him. Plus, I like seeing him knock guys down :)
