Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Christian Ponder may have a nice check to cash from having a job in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean he won’t slum it at Arby’s once in a while. In fact, Ponder must have taken a liking to the fast food joint, because he took his beautiful wife, Samantha Ponder, to Arby’s for their wedding dinner.
Samantha Ponder was recently interviewed by Bob Sansevere of the St. Paul Pioneer Press and talked about her wedding and the special dinner they shared that night.
I never was really a girl who planned out what my wedding would be, what my dress would look like. Everybody’s different. When we got married, he picked me up at the airport and I was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt and a hat. We drove the 20 minutes to Hudson or whatever it was, walked in, got married. Then we went and ate Arby’s as our wedding meal. We get way more attention than we ever deserve or need or want, because of our jobs. I don’t need a day that’s all about me. I was happy to go get married. That night after we had our Arby’s, we forgot the offensive line had an Ugly Sweater Party at a local restaurant. One of the guys texted Christian and asked, “Dude, where are you at?” We went to the mall and found ugly sweaters and went to the Ugly Sweater Party. We wanted to leave early, but everybody was like, “No, don’t leave.” I’m thinking, “Gosh, we just got married.”
That a boy Christian! Still no word on if the honeymoon took place at Chuck E Cheese’s or not, but once we find out we will let you know!
