STARS ALIGN AS WILLA FORD TIES KNOT WITH MODANO: Mike Modano faces off at the altar this Saturday, as the Dallas Stars star will be marrying “Dancing With The Stars” star Willa Ford:
The FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM reports the nuptials between the skater and money-maker shaker will take place in Athens. However, the article neglects to mention which Athens - Athens, Greece; Athens, Georgia; or the Athens Cafe in Astoria, New York. (We’ll assume there’s a Texas version, and leave it at that.)
It will be interesting to see how many in Stars management received invitations, considering the soon-to-be Mrs. Modano’s previous opinions about her soon-to-be husband’s employer.
But we’re not sure if Modano is really ready for the sacred institution of marriage. During his lengthy NHL career, #9 has been involved in only one fight - a matchup against Rod Brind’Amour.
However, Brind’Amour’s surname roughly translates to “sprig of love”. So, if Modano’s single bout of fisticuffs was really a matter of the heart, Mike & Willa have a chance, after all.
