When most people envision their dream honeymoon, thoughts of white sand beaches, turquoise waters and tropical drinks race through their heads. Daniel and Cathie Bohannon, who got married last week, are not most people.
The Bohannons held their wedding in North Carolina, not far from where the Washington Redskins hold their training camp in Richmond. Rather than hopping on a cruise or flying to the Caribbean after they tied the knot, Daniel and Cathie decided to honeymoon with Robert Griffin III and company.
“The stars aligned,” Daniel told WWBT in Richmond. “We got married on the beach and it was kind of our perfect wedding that we wanted to have. The Redskins training camp was gonna be here and it just worked out perfectly for us to be able to come up here.”
Daniel and Cathie have been living in Dallas together for the past seven years, so it’s not as if they’re around their favorite team all the time. That’s why they decided to take advantage of the opportunity, and they have been joined by some friends from home along the way.
“We’ve been going with the Burgundy and Gold Club from Dallas,” Cathie explained. “It’s so fantastic being here with the rest of the Redskins fans.”
Isn’t there some place they would rather be to celebrate their marriage?
“Maybe the beaches of Hawaii,” Daniel said. “But I guess this is the second place I’d want to be — except for maybe the Super Bowl.”
Couples honeymooning at training camp and grown women crying because they couldn’t get an autograph from RG3? The Redskins may just have the most rabid fan base in all of sports.
