Tomorrow, Dominique Collins is getting married. I couldn't be happier for DC.
I have written many times about DC. She is the first player from the Chicago Bliss I interviewed at a game. DC is one of my favorite interviews and she is near the top of most interviews I have done. She is a four time Legends Football League champ with the Bliss. She is one of the hardest working, smartest and toughest competitors I have ever met on or off the field.
After finally retiring from the Bliss, DC moved to Texas. As sad as I was to see her leave the area, I was happy when I saw how happy she was. Then she met the man of her dreams and got even happier.
DC deserves every bit of happiness. I'd say her husband is a lucky guy, but I think they are both lucky to have found each other.
I hope our paths cross again sometime. I'd love to see DC and give her a big hug. I appreciate all she did for me, including the many interviews. Meeting people like DC is one of the best parts of doing "Johngy's Beat."
Congratulations DC. I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
Dominique Collins and me in Bridgeview, IL-January 2015.
