It was right before thanksgiving when Brad and Christina met over 5 years ago. Christina and one of her best friends had moved into a house in Mt. Washington and that same day she said “Hey, want to go play flag football?” So, Christina loving the Steelers and being the competitor she is; put on her #43 jersey and headed out the door to dominate on the field.
Brad and Christina ended up on the same team, Brad was the quarterback. They both grew up playing sports all their life and both being very competitive. Christina kept running to get open and Brad just was not throwing to her. Finally, she walked up to him and said “Hey, look if you are not going to throw to me, I’m done running and done with this game!” (She had just moved into a house all day, that is exhausting inside itself)
Well.. from then on they hit it off.
Brad and Christina came together through one of their best friends. They lived two blocks away from each other for several years of dating on an amazing mountain in Pittsburgh and fell in love.
They ended up moving out of the city into the suburbs after 3 years of dating because they wanted to be closer to a golf course, since they were both passionate about golf.
Christina: I remember the day, we were sitting on the couch and I asked him if I should go get a mani or pedi before golf (because I only had time for 1) and he said manicure. Good guy! That way my nails looked good in the picture, right?!
They went out and golfed 9 holes, both were playing AWESOME. However, they were stuck behind a group of 4 guys that were just playing soooo slow.
By the time they got to the ninth hole, Christina just wanted to be done since they were both tired of waiting for the guys on every hole.
Christina: We both hit on the 9th hole, drive over the green and he starts asking me what is in the cup on the green. I just wanted to finish at that point because of having to wait every hole so I told him to move to let me putt, he asked me again and again.. finally I walked over and he got down on one knee and I froze right in front of him. He pulled the ring out of the cup and asked me to marry him. Then I said YES! of course. It was love, what else would one say?
p.s. the guy that set us up, our best friend- was hiding in the bushes taking pictures of the whole thing.
