Matt Treanor watching Misty from Dodgers' clubhouseSo I really hope that you all tuned in to watch the final, amazing match between Misty May-Treanor & Kerri Walsh Jennings vs. fellow Americans April Ross & Jennifer Kessy. K&M won their third gold Olympic medal and are pretty much the best team ever in all of sports and so totally badass that you can't help but be infatuated with their story.
Though Kerri's family was in attendance, Dodgers' player Matt Treanor couldn't be there in London due to the fact that, well, it's baseball season. He had to watch her win in the Dodgers' clubhouse on a small laptop screen!
And not only that, he made no secret on how he gets super emotional and gushes over his wife and her amazing accomplishments. After watching him talk about her, I now think they're officially the cutest couple in sports.
He said, right before his game against the Colorado Rockies:
I'm an emotional person. I'm not afraid to cry. I'm not afraid to snap a bat over my neck. That's the way I am, the way I'm built. Irish Italian doesn't always help either. The funny thing is Misty is kind of the opposite. She doesn't really show emotion that much. She kind of always looks at me when we're watching a sappy movie, waiting for me to shed a tear. She gets a kick out of that.
Awwww, I love this. And here he is actually watching her match, and his reaction to her big win:
It's great when he quips that she's definitely the best athlete in the family now. And that he got so emotional that he had to step out of the room and take a moment to himself. From this quick clip -- he seems like an awesome husband!
You bet your ass that I got choked up watching Kerri and Misty gush about their friendship and how much they mean to each other, and you bet your ass yet again that I thoroughly enjoyed watching Matt's reaction to his wife's ridiculous athletic accomplishments. It just goes to show how strong their bond is -- even when they're an ocean away. Sigh, such a great story. This is why I love the Olympics!
What do you think about Matt getting teary-eyed over Misty's historic win? Has your spouse ever missed something big in your life?
