Today is Christian & Samantha Ponder's First Anniversary!

It was one year ago to this day that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder married the beautiful and talented Samantha Steele.

Since then, it has been a rough year for Christian Ponder.  Especially when it comes to his career.  He has been benched and injured on several occasions this year and now there are rumors that the Vikings will try to trade Christian, their former first round draft pick , this offseason.  Either way, it looks like he will not be the Vikings choice to be the starting quarterback next season.

Still, Christian should be a very happy man.  He is living a life doing what he loves and sharing it with someone he loves.  Although it has to be disappointing that things didn’t work out for him in Minnesota, he could get another opportunity somewhere else.  Even then, he’ll have his wife by his side and a happy future ahead of him.

Congratulations to Christian and Samantha.  Hopefully they’ll have many more wonderful years together.
