Like any good girlfriend would, David Nelson’s significant other will be cheering for him when the Bills take on the Cowboys this weekend. What is unusual about this particular situation is that the lovely lady, Kelsi Reich, had better keep the cheering to herself. Otherwise, she might lose her job.
Reich is a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and Nelson, of course, is a receiver for the Bills. Reich’s actual job description is to root for the Cowboys, so you can see why it might be uncomfortable if she shows any emotion if her boyfriend makes a big play this weekend.
“She works for the Dallas Cowboys and roots for the Dallas Cowboys, but I know she’ll have some inside joy if I do well,” Nelson said according Inside the Bills. “So it’s going to be a fun experience and I’m going to definitely be looking and record the TV copy and see if they show her a couple of times to see her reaction. It’s going to be fun. It’s something we’ve been looking forward to for some time and we’ve already been trash talking back and forth a little bit.”
Nelson then said he will have something planned if he scores and Reich happens to be in the area, but he doesn’t want to do anything that will get her into trouble. He also insists an Ian Johnson-style proposal is completely out of the question.
“I can honestly tell you 100 percent it will not be a proposal,” he assured. “Been there and done that. I want to do something that hasn’t been done before, but the situation has to be right. I’m not a big celebration guy when I score, but this is a special situation and if something happens I’ll be looking to enjoy the situation.”
This should be a fun side story to follow in what should be a good match-up to begin with. Nelson could still bust out an engagement after telling everyone there is no chance he would go there. Wouldn’t that be the genius of it?
