You know, it’s a long weekend and there’s pretty much nothing going on with the Green Bay Packers. So we decided to do some digging around for something to post. The result of that is we’re bringing you Rachel Abbrederis.
We were actually looking for something on one of the Packers’ draftees girlfriends… because we know you like broads. We remembered that your new favorite receiver, the great white hope himself, Wisconsin Badgers legend, Jared Abbrederis has a photo of himself with a chick on Twitter.
Turns out, that’s his wife.
Yeah, dude got married just about two years ago (May 26). We did not know this, because who gets married while they’re in college? That’s the time for pounding shots, smoking blunts and banging sorority girls!
Abbrederis is one of those bible thumpers though, which we also did not know. Well, maybe not so much of a thumper — that annoying prick Tim Tebow is a thumper — but definitely the religious type. The kind of guy who relies on faith and will throw out the occasional bible verse because why the hell not?
So we guess that also makes him the kind of guy who gets married in college instead of defiling coeds. He met his wife at bible study.
Not even making that up.
They even have a website with the story about how they met (which we imagine he probably now regrets). It features this photo and the following story.
By the way, that button-up shirt is at least two sizes two big for you, bro.
Jared had started going to Blackhawks College age ministry group that past summer and had asked the college age pastor if there was any type of mentor program he could get involved in. Instead, he was told about the lifegroups and got placed in the lifegroup that happened to be the only one I could join. So first Sunday night of the lifegroup Jared and I met, and just briefly talked. Jared says he left that night and told one of his friends that he had met the girl he was going to marry :)
Two days later at the College Age Ministry night Jared and I ran into each other and ended up sitting by each other. After talking for awhile I had to leave and found Jared following me out. After asking me for my number he texted me later that night and the conversation didn’t stop from there- he called me the next day asking if I’d like to go to dinner that Saturday. Come Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of hanging out, we both knew there was something more than an interest and we decided to make things official with dating. 7 months later and were engaged!
There was actually more to that story, but in typical broad fashion, half of it was entirely unnecessary.
Anyway, it looks like Rachel Abbrederis has pretty effectively scrubbed herself from the Internet. Either that, or she doesn’t know what the Internet is.
But we do! And here she is.
She’s OK, I hope he turns out to be a pass catching machine (particularly in the red zone), but religious people still give me a rash. Magic is not real.
Engaged in 7 months??!? Insane!
My parents met and married in 3 months. They’ve been together for over 35 years. Sometimes it just works out that way.
Whoever wrote this article is an a**hole…in a good way. I bet he could write about the sky being blue and make it an entertaining read. Will be looking forward to reading future articles..and this is coming from a broad ;)
Carl, I got married after 6 months. 18 years later and we are still going strong. When you know, you know.
Star Wars, too!
Lombardi era teams were celestials…
Same with the TT/MM era.
Wolf/Holmgren era? Some of those guys were fun lovin evil fuckers. The “three amigos” :)
Not sure I’m into commenting on player’s wives….family…etc. As much as I like this site…I’m not a fan of that. Sterger? Fuck yeah…totally fair game!
Maybe him and Colt Lyerla will make a buddy cop movie.
I’m going on 26 years after 6 months. No problem there. Faith in the Lord can help bond a marriage in a special way, and that faith is not wrought in just showing up and giving vows on one’s wedding day, it’s when God is real to a person (you know Him) and he lives to serve Him.
You can’t blame Tim Tebow, he can’t control the way the press was handling him or his faith.
Ah, but I can blame Tebow; Matthew 6 verses 5&6:
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
BAM! Heathen throwing scripture at Tim Tebow!
Good work with the Scripture.
But I don’t consider a man honestly answering questions to be hypocritically proclaiming his faith.
Tebow didn’t seek the attention. He merely used the attention given to him. That isn’t the same.
Sure Tebow didn’t seek attention, except for buying that TV ad with his mom – the anti-abortion one – during the 2010 Super Bowl.
So the pious kneeling in the end zone wasn’t attention seeking? Using this logic I guess whipping a sharpie out of your sock & autographing a ball in the end zone was merely an attempt to get props for how awesome sharpies are…..
Can I please get a shirtless Randall Cobb pic just once on this site? Another A-Rog on the beach pic?
Give the girls some eye candy love, Monty.
Meeting your woman at Bible study is about as good as it gets. That’s a marriage that will last. Guaranteed.
Think she does anal?
Thanks NR for the shirtless Cobb request.
And l wish I had been more fortunate on the quick marriage thing..just separated. We married after four months.
Last, Tebow is really annoying.
I could not believe there is a Packer fan with a site for “broads”. I clicked on it to find out what kind of writer for Packer information was writing such trash. Are you from Wisconsin? How long have you been writing about the Packers? From your picture you appear to be quite young. You obviously have not experienced watching Bart Starr, Paul Hornung and Ray Nitschke play. You probably couldn’t spell their names without spellcheck. Since you have never met Rachel Abbrederis, you should be careful of what you say. You do not understand how college students can be mature and respectful, because you have neither of these attributes, based on your articles. I have not looked into your bio, but I think your “schtick” is to mock or belittle the Packers. If you are a born and raised Wisconsinite, and you write like this, you are not a true Packer fan.
Robin, thank you. It is quite a disrepspectful article about my cousin and his wife, not to mention about women. We are not broads, as you referred to women, and I give my cousin and his wife a lot of credit not to fall into the drunken party life so many college students, but stay faithful to their faith.
