Two women in Arlington, Texas have a rather unique bond. Not only do they work in the same office they both has sons going to the Super Bowl, just for different teams.
Co-workers Diane Browning and Joyce Nance have a lot more in common than their jobs collecting medical bills. They also both have sons who love football and dreamed of playing in the NFL.
As Dimitri Nance and Dorian Brooks pursued the same goal. Both mothers compared notes at work.
Diane Browning, whose son plays for the Steelers says “I would hear her stories and what Dimitri was dealing with and she would tell me her stories, I’d tell her mine.”
Don’t expect to see either actually playing in the Super Bowl. Brooks is on the practice squad and as a young rookie, Nance will probably stay on the sidelines. But their proud mothers will both be here, to root them on.
Joyce Nance, whose son plays for the Packers, says “I’m just so excited. I just don’t know.” Diane says “I’ll probably be screaming my head off.”
And who will win? Diane says “There’s no rivalry because we’ve both won. But the Steelers are going to take that ring, ok? That’s all I’ve got to say about that.”
Two co-workers, two sons, they’ll all have plenty to cheer about Super Bowl Sunday.
