You know it! But she is also out numbered by her father, brothers AND husband.

Still you are married and you know how the wife can influence a LOT of things if she doesn't like it.

You are right Twist. My wife deserves a lot of credit. Coaching soccer and running Matmen takes a lot of time away from the family. She is very understanding (most of the time).

When you think about it she probably has her father rapped around her finger and the brothers...she either use to beat them up or they protected her so she really only has to deal with her husband...lol....a lot of Illinois wrestling fans owe her a debt of graititude...Thanks

Trust me...she doesn't need much. Her parents used to give her raw hotdogs at wrestling tournaments and tell her they were a delicacy.

I can attest to this first hand. Missing my third straight finals in Champaign this year thanks to "the boss."

Nice coverage. You more than deserve it, Mike, for making this site as great at it is.

I still cannot believe that we have the same number of kids and you're seven or eight years younger than me. Wow.
