How we met (his point of view) We met at the 2009 St. Pete Bowl held at Tropicana Field. Before the game I had been in several arguments with my UCF ticket rep about how poor my tickets were, little did I know that he was just looking out for me. Somewhere in the first quarter I was looking around and saw this very beautiful blond about 2 rows behind me to my left about 5-10 seats, we caught each other's eye and smiled. A few minutes later this same blond was heading out of the section with an empty beer glass only to come back less than a minute later with the same empty beer glass. My friends (who were sitting at the end of her row) and I started harassing her about going for a beer and coming back empty, which is when my good friend and groomsman Will peer pressured her into going to get another beer. When they got to the concession line it was really long (which is why Denise came back empty handed in the first place) but fortunately my dad was at the front of the line and he bought both Will and Denise a beer and brought them back to our section. The rest of the first half did not go so well for the Knights and I started turning my attention from the game to Denise. We spent all of halftime and the second half sitting next together and talking, getting to know each other. After the game Will, Tony and I followed Denise and her friends (thankfully they had a sober driver) all throughout downtown St. Pete as we tried to find what Denise was describing as amazing pizza. We finally found the place and spent about 30 minutes hanging out and talking some more. The next day Denise agreed to meet me for dinner and we had our first official date (where we had the exact same conversations we had the night before since she had forgotten them all). The rest is history!
