Half of basketball's first couple makes her living in Minneapolis.
Seven years after they met at an All-American showcase for high school players in California, Minnesota Lynx player Monica Wright and Kevin Durant are engaged, according to numerous reports.

Durant, a three-time NBA scoring champion for the Oklahoma City Thunder, was spotted in May sitting courtside at a Lynx game. That same day, he donated $1 million to the tornado-ravaged town of Moore, Oklahoma. Wright, who at the time was reportedly nothing more than "friends" with Durant, said she wasn't surprised by his generosity.

Just as he did 43 years ago, Rydberg served his "13" an order she'll never forget.
Steve Rydberg fell in love with young Kristine Hess while he worked at a McDonald's in Crystal in the late 1960s.

Then 16 years old, Rydberg and his co-workers developed a special code whenever a cute girl would come in and place an order. They'd say things like, '13 on register 2,' or 'I need some fries and a 13 on 3.' 13 was the tip off. And to Rydberg, no 13 ever surpassed Kristine Hess, who quickly became a regular at Steve's register.

"I thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world," Rydberg told KARE 11. Then the couple graduated from high school, and their young love seemingly died on the vine.
