Giants rookie linebacker Greg Jones will have plenty to celebrate over the next couple days. For starters, his team won the Super Bowl on Sunday. It will take a while to come down from that high — especially for a rookie — but Jones will have other things on his mind in addition to the big victory. According to the Star-Ledger, Jones proposed to his girlfriend on the field after the game. She said yes.
“She was bawling,” Jones said Monday morning before boarding the team plane to head back to New York. “I was like, ‘I don’t know how long she’s going to keep crying.’”
Jones met Amanda three years ago at Michigan State. As freelance writer Chris Vannini pointed out, the “Amanda” who is now Jones’ fiancee is former Michigan State basketball player Mandy Piechowski. She happens to now be a model.
“She definitely knows how I feel,” Jones said. “A speech wasn’t even needed. Just everything we’ve been through together. She’s been here since Day One and she knew me long before everything else.”
Super Bowl ring after only one season in the NFL? Check. Future wife who was once a Division 1 athlete and is now a model? Check. Overall I’d say it has been a pretty good year for the rookie. The only question now is how long would she have had to wait to get her ring if the Giants lost?Google+
