I have to admit, I didn't know a ton about Andy Reid's wife, Tammy. And I certainly did not know she always refers to him as "Andrew." That's just awesome. She is also apparently extremely active in the community. That has been the Philadelphia area for the last 14 years, but now she's going to be transplanted to Kansas City where she'll likely continue her efforts.
Caroline O'Halloran of the Journal Register News Service recently caught up with Tammy to talk about all of her different efforts in the community. She of course talked about her husband a bit as well. Tammy never really understood some of the criticisms of her hubby:
“I know one of the criticisms of Andy during his Philly years was that
he was disconnected from the fans. That always perplexed me … I saw
things differently. I saw a Coach who readily hugged a woman whose
husband once chained her to the bathroom sink for days… I saw a Coach
who signed an autograph for a scared, star-struck child who had moved
into a shelter a week before… I saw a Coach who had no trouble grabbing a
microphone when bidding was low during a silent auction and reminding
the well-heeled crowd why they were at the gala in the first place. I
wish more Philadelphians had a chance to see this caring side of Andy.”
