Sports couples tend to get a surprising amount of attention. Even those couples in which one half of the pair is only famous for being married to a professional athlete are frequently featured in magazines and given their own reality shows.
Although the power couples in sports are those that have star power on both sides. When a professional athlete hooks up with another celebrity, the amount of public interest their union receives increases exponentially.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady would be a pretty big deal even if he was married to some bum like me. The fact that he's married to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, perhaps the most widely recognized model in the world for nearly a decade, has made him a much bigger deal.
Tom and Gisele are the sports power couple today, but the crown was passed down from the sports power couples of yesteryear. Which is a whimsical way of saying back in the '90s.
Mr. and Mrs. Brady were a couple of awkward and gangly teenagers when a previous generation of sports power couples roamed the earth. Some far more "powerful" than others.
So let's take a trip down memory lane to revisit some of the most notable sports power couples of the '90s and see how many of their relationships were built to last.
Spoiler alert: Very few were.
