Tony is a former NFL player, who played for Oakland Raiders, New York Giants, and Seattle Seahawks, and physically ran into Dr. Mercy on one fine day in 2002 at the student union of the University of Iowa. Their first encounter was on the smoothest of the first meeting as Dr. Mercy had considered it a college athlete’s lack of manners. Little did she know her brown eyes had literally left Tony speechless and in love at first sight.
Anyway, despite the not-so-good first impression, Tony managed to ask Dr. Mercy to be his science tutor. With time, they became friends and a romance bloomed when Dr. Mercy started medical school. Over a decade from their initial run-in and Tony was ready to propose Dr. Mercy to be his bride.
