But what about when the marriage begins? Especially when a Syracuse Orange is doing some as drastic and insane as marrying one of the Connecticut Huskies.
Ashley is currently expecting her first child, a boy due this month. So when it came time for Ashley’s baby shower, she and Amber quickly decided on the party’s theme: Syracuse basketball.
There was just one hurdle. Ashley’s husband, Shawn Moody, is a Connecticut fan.
Crossman said her husband agreed to let her raise their son as an Orange basketball fan. But Moody had his own conditions.
Crossman, a fan of the Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Braves, had to agree that Moody could teach their son to be a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and Boston Red Sox.
Syracuse fans are the Edward The Longshanks to UConn's Scots. If we can't get you out, we'll breed you out.
And Ashley, if you need any pointers, I know a great book...
