A to Z Challenge: XANGO and RSL

Kyle Beckerman in XANGO RSL Jersey

In November 2006 management of RSL Soccer team signed an agreement with XANGO, a diet supplement maker, to put the company name on the front of the soccer team's jerseys.  Thus began the more than five-year span of time when XANGO became a part of our courtship.   Yes, we married way back in 1983, many years before either XANGO or RSL Soccer were even dreamed of, but DH and I do manage to continue courting from time to time, even though we are now an old married couple with grandchildren.  For ?? years we were the proud owners of four front row season tickets for RSL Soccer home games.  I admit that I did not attend every game with my DH, but I did attend my fair share, along with our children and various other friends and relatives who have been invited along from time to time.  

Through the years we have also enjoyed season tickets to the NJ Symphony Orchestra, and have spent other evenings together attending concerts and museums and movies and dinners out.   Maybe one of our favorite activities together are quiet evenings at home with good books. 

How do you and your spouse continue your courtship?

  1. Corporate sponsorship is kind of an "evil" necessity as I see it. Brand names all over everything, and every stadium and venue is now tied to some major corporation. Kind of sad, but I realize that's big business and it's not going to change.

    Papa Bear and I have designated Saturdays, after he gets off work at 3 PM, as "date night". Most often we go out to eat, and will attend anything fun and inexpensive that might be going on in town. Otherwise we are quite happy to curl up at home and share a movie or favorite tv shows. Unlike many couples, we spend about 90% of our freetime together, because we are best friends and we want it that way! :-)

  2. I don't mind the corporate sponsorship too much, as it does make tickets to sporting events much more affordable. Unfortunately (especially for DH, who loved being involved with soccer and attending all the games) we did have to eventually give up the season tickets. I love your kind of date nights! May you enjoy many many more together with Papa Bear!
