They found love in a hopeless place.
The comments section of KSR is notoriously known for being a desolate abyss for the worst or the worst. Scattered with trolls and negative Nancy’s, the first rookie mistake by all KSR writers is taking the insults seriously. In fact, one recommended Twitter handle for all writers was @AvoidComments, sending frequent reminders to stay away from the awfulness.
However, there is a silver lining to the awfulness.
bleu_girl_04 and AAWolv spent their free time wandering through ESPN’s Big 10 blog, fearlessly defending their Wolverines during arguably their worst run in the history of Michigan football. They joked that they were “blog married,” with AAWolv “blog proposing” with a picture of Michigan’s 1997 National Championship ring. The relationship was going to remain exclusively on the internet, until Manti Te’o was catfished.
After challenging bleu_girl_04 to see if she actually was a woman, things started speeding up. Kate and Brandon eventually met in person, with their love story leading them to the alter for a real marriage this past weekend. Real fans don’t get married during college football season, so they waited until Michigan’s Bye Week.
Watch the happy couple’s unbelievable story, and who knows, maybe you might find your true love in the comments section of this post…
(Full disclosure, I didn’t know ESPN also had a Rihanna reference until after I wrote this story. But I’m keeping it, because there is no more appropriate song in the world for this insane story.)
