After meeting at the Athens games, they married in June 2007. Now they're recipients of horribly lame jokes from media, Olympics officials and the hotel bellboys trying to start conversation.*
"I guess you could call it a shotgun wedding, no?"
"Matt, you truly brought home the gold at Athens!"
"Katy only captured the bronze; some husband you are!"
"So who pulled the trigger first?"
"Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see her?"
"You two are number one with a bullet!"
"Did you have to put a gun to her head to make her say 'I do', Matt?"
If Matt and Katy seem grumpy during the Olympics, now you know why.
* At least that's how I envision it.
