True love stories: Couple to wed at 2013 Super BowlTwo super fans vow their love to each other—and the Baltimore Ravens.
In 2001, the Baltimore Ravens beat the New York Giants at Super Bowl XXXV. Celebrating the win at a party, Daisy Sudano met Jim Pellegrini, and the two hit it off.
"I thought that was a perfect time to ask her out, and the rest is history. The Ravens won, and we've been together ever since," Pellegrini told WBAL-TV.
They dated for the next 12 years but decided they wouldn't tie the knot until the Ravens returned to the Super Bowl.
Sudano says she was the one with cold feet, telling The Baltimore Sun:
"I wanted a little more time to go by and make it interesting. Because if [the Ravens] were ever in another Super Bowl, it would make our wedding special."
This year, when the Ravens beat the New England Patriots and earned a spot at Super Bowl XLVII, Daisy and Jim knew it was time.
"We looked at each other with tears in our eyes," Sudano said. "And we hugged and kissed and said, 'Finally.'"
Originally, the couple planned to wed in New Orleans over Super Bowl weekend, watching the game on TV.
But they were surprised when a Baltimore car dealership offered them tickets to the game.
"I'm ecstatic," Pellegrini said. "We've been waiting a long time, and this is really special the way it's happening.
Sudano joked, "I think he wanted to do it now because then he would never forget our anniversary."
The two are still planning to elope on Saturday in New Orleans. And then they'll share their honeymoon with 70,000 other people.
