Steve Spagnuolo's Wife

This is a Star-Ledger photo by Tim Farrell, taken without permission, so please click on this story to reward the paper.

When the talk turned to Steve Spagnuolo at our pre-Super-Bowl dinner, featuring the sports staff of the Newark Star-Ledger plus two WaPo interlopers, the talk quickly turned instead to Steve Spagnuolo's wife. The Newark Star-Ledger loves Steve Spagnuolo's hair-cutting, trash-talking, food-making, men-attracting wife, so much so that a staffer went to get a haircut from her pre-Super Bowl. You should read the resulting story, but I'll just borrow one passage.

And then I mentioned the New England Patriots.

"Ow!" the clipper digs into my scalp.

"You know, when they played them the first time, Steve was getting text messages from some of his friends who are Patriots fans," she says. "They told him, 'Go easy on Tom Brady. We need him for the Super Bowl.' Can you imagine that? I told Steve what I thought they should do to Brady.

"So, Steve goes into the defensive meeting that week and says, 'My wife is not a violent person, she doesn't have a mean bone in her body, but she says we should kick Tom Brady in his ...'"

Ok, Mr. Spagnuolo, you're hired, see you later in the week, please bring your wife to the press conference, thanks.

(See also Newsday: "Spagnuolo's wife, Maria, makes sure her husband's crew has extra incentive to stay in that film room; she's been baking desserts all season. Banana pudding, apple turnovers, cookies and cheesecake are on the menu, just to name a few of the specialties.")

Great article, luv the personality, luv her husband's ability to tie Tom Brady into neat & tidy little knots, but, uh, wrt "men-attracting" - I don't want to be mean or anything, and maybe it's just the pic, but she looks like she sneaked a peak at the Arc of the Covenant, if you get my drift...

Her shop/salon/whatever is 1.95 driving miles (according to MapQuest) from my grandparents house.

Let me know when you want the SportsBog haircut piece.

From Newsday:

"He's only 5-8 or so; he didn't get to pick his body out. But he has a huge heart. No matter if we're playing good or bad, he's over there, cool, calm, collected. You don't want to let a guy like that down."

Spags is Danny's height and the hottest name available. Game.Set.Match.

What's up with no one else getting a haircut in that room?

Is she gonna be our Brenda Warner?

Danny is only 5 foot 2. He borrows six inch lifts from Tom Cruise to appear 5-8.
