No matter how many unbelievable wins Florida Gulf Coast University reels off during its magical NCAA tournament run, coach Andy Enfield's biggest upset is most likely already behind him.
As you may or may not know, Enfield is married to one-time supermodel Amanda Enfield (formerly Marcum). They met in 2011, and the sparks flew immediately. But in a recent interview, Enfield revealed that he took some pretty big risks early in the couple's romance.
For starters, Andy brought Amanda to a St. John's NIT game as their first date. Not ideal for most women, but luckily Amanda is a huge sports fan. Perhaps even more amazing is what Andy bought for him and Amanda to eat on their first night out: Taco Bell.
Enfield told Newsday that he was unfamiliar with restaurants around the St. John's campus in Queens, so he opted for Taco Bell, which he knew would be open.
"I got her a nice burrito, and we sat behind the bench," Enfield said. "I figured if she still likes me after Taco Bell and a basketball game ... "
Luckily for Enfield, Marcum was still interested after the game. Things quickly heated up, and six months later the couple was engaged. CBS broadcaster Lewis Johnson discussed the proposal on air during the Eagles' second-round game against Georgetown.
"Get this," Johnson said. "the ring was squeezed in between two Krispy Kreme donuts ... inside the box."
To recap, Enfield scored his model wife by picking up Taco Bell on his first date and proposing with a box of Krispy Kremes.
We may be only reading about Enfield now because of the amazing events of last week, but this man is clearly already familiar with good fortune.
