Valentine's Day Tidbit #4

Patron Saint

The name Valentine likely comes from a Roman martyr and saint who was imprisoned and fell in love with his jailer’s daughter. He wrote her a letter signed “from your Valentine.*”

Or maybe it was this version…

Legend has it that the holiday became Valentine’s Day after a priest named Valentine…The Emperor at that time…ordered the Roman soldiers NOT to marry or become engaged…Valentine defied the Emperor’s decree and secretly married the young couples. He was eventually arrested, imprisoned, and …was beheaded on February 14th.**

If You Can’t Win a Trophy, then Marry One!

So says an article over at Hogwild.net. While the article is a humorous look at the sexiest sports wives today, I honestly can’t figure out why this ones a holiday! And I know something about holidays!

Oh wait. It just hit me. I know what it is … Big BOOBIES!  Its in honor of the generous and unselfish philanthropic work that they do.  Oh! OK now I know what why we’re celebrating.

So to all those obscenely rich sports guys out there. Congrats!
