Josette and Troy Davenport, from Cincinnati have been married for 25 years. The couple both serve as fire fighters for the city of Cincinnati and have for over 20 years. For their 25th wedding anniversary, Josette surprised her football-loving husband with the ultimate fan experience at Pro Bowl 2019 in Orlando. You may have seen them featured on our @nflonlocation social media channels, but we wanted to get to know this great couple a bit more!
Why do you find football interesting and why is football your favorite sport?
We both were born to love football. It’s without a doubt the best contact sport, plus the hype, excitement and energy it brings is second to none!
Who is your favorite NFL team and player?
Our favorite team is the Cincinnati Bengals and we are excited to cheer on the team and new coach next year. Our favorite player is AJ Green. He is incredible!
On a typical football Sunday, who do you experience games with?
It really depends on the Sunday. We will have friends over, sometimes we will go to a friend’s house and sometimes it is just the two of us. We also love to get out to a game or two every year! During football season, every Sunday is a great Sunday no matter how we watch!
Do you have any football rituals?
We love getting dressed up in our Bengals gear, even if we aren’t going to the game that week.
Are there any other cool trips you have been on since you met?
We’ve been to the Caribbean, Alaska, South America, Madagascar and the Mediterranean. All were great trips!
Had you always planned to celebrate your 25th wedding anniversary at Pro Bowl?
I had always planned on surprising my husband someday. So being able to do this on our 25th anniversary was right on point!
Did you attend any of On Location’s tailgate parties?
Yes, we attended, and even though it was raining, we had an absolute blast!
What is your favorite memory from Pro Bowl weekend?
My favorite memory from the weekend was being able to watch my husband’s expressions and excitement all weekend long. Seeing him happy and having fun made it worth every cent!
Did you meet or see any NFL players while attending OLE events prior to the game?
We saw so many players throughout the trip! Whether we were at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports for Pro Bowl Week events, at the red carpet on gameday, pregame… and oh yeah, Emmitt Smith! That was just WOW!
What’s next and do you have plans for your 30th anniversary?
For our 30th, I think Super Bowl is the move!
