Three Texans players got married last weekend, taking up a lot of timeline space on social media. It's a popular time of year to tie the knot for NFL players, most of whom will report for offseason conditioning in April.
In J.J. Watt's case, his window to get married was larger than wife Kealia Ohai, who plays professional soccer. In fact, Watt showcased her on Twitter doing shuttles just two days after the wedding. Her season is coming up soon.
The NFL offseason program is a nine-week stretch that will take players and coaches into June before getting a few weeks off prior to camp. There's just not a lot of time to get things done. The program is voluntary, but most NFL players participate.
My own wedding, in 2001, could only happen during a 3-4 week window. I was broadcasting football, basketball and baseball for the University of Miami and was in Omaha for the College World Series and got back a week before the wedding. Two weeks after the honeymoon, it was time for football. Sports industry life is fun and busy.
You'll never hear me complain about the NFL offseason being a busier time than people think. We still crank out five nights of Texans Radio on Sports Radio 610. We do Texans 360 every Saturday night at 11 on ABC 13. And we constantly generate gobs of content on all the social media platforms. But there's joy in doing it all.
Next week is the NFL Scouting Combine, followed by free agency, then the 'owners meetings' and the draft. There's always something going on in this league. This last weekend we had weddings, this week, a Texan gets re-signed (congrats, Brandon Dunn).
Stay tuned for whatever happens tomorrow.
