The Pistol Annies’ Ashley Monroe Gets Engaged To Chicago White Sox Pitcher With Local Ties
It’s funny what you find on Twitter. I was just scanning tweets on my phone and I came across one that was quite interesting.
As soon as I saw the name John Danks, I thought it can’t be, well it is. Now let me explain. John’s father, who is also named John, grew up in Beaver Dam, KY. John Jr.’s grandfather, Bill has operated a funeral home in Beaver Dam for over 4o years, and John Sr. recently returned home to the family business. Confused yet? The 27-year-0ld Chicago White Sox lefty takes after John Sr, who was quite the athlete himself at Ohio County High School; he played basketball at the University of Texas in Austin.
And John Jr.’s little brother Jordan also plays for the White Sox. You got all that?
Oh and congratulations to Ashley and John!
