Duffy’s Sports Grill, a South Florida sports themed restaurant chain, today announced a partnership with Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins’ starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. This alliance marks the first time Lauren Tannehill has ever partnered with a restaurant brand.
The couple was welcomed to South Florida earlier this year when Ryan was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. *Having been featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” Lauren Tannehill quickly became Miami’s newest sweetheart, and made some enthusiastic Tweets yesterday announcing the partnership.
“Even though I like to keep our life somewhat private, it’s obvious I also love to talk with all of our fans on Twitter and Facebook,” said Lauren Tannehill in a statement. “Given the Miami Dolphins fans’ love for watching the games at Duffy’s Sports Grill, and how supportive Duffy’s is of the Dolphins, it seemed like a natural partnership to pursue.”
