Sarah Colonna grew up a sports fan, mostly following baseball. "My dad was a sports editor, so I'm more knowledgeable than I would have been otherwise," the Arkansas native explains. "I'm a big baseball fan because when I would visit him in the summer in California, it was baseball season."

Colonna's dad worked at the Orange County Register, which made her a fan of the Los Angeles Angels.
Nowadays she's engaged to a footballer, Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan. Football isn't a sport Colonna followed previously. "As I've gotten older I appreciate it more. Football used to be something that could be on in the background, but I never followed it."
That, of course, has changed.
