GLENDALE, Ariz. – Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner has had a busy weekend.
One day after attending the WM Phoenix Open, the six-time WNBA All-Star attended Super Bowl 57 between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles at State Farm Stadium with her wife, Cherelle.
Both were sporting Philadelphia Eagles jerseys: Griner wore a throwback No. 12 jersey in honor of former quarterback Randall Cunningham, while Cherelle wore a No. 92 Eagles jersey in honor of a former pass rusher, late Hall of Famer Reggie White. Fan footage showed Griner high-fiving fans after the Eagles went up 14-7 in the second quarter, all while enjoying a pizza.
This marks Griner’s third public appearance since she was released from a Russian penal colony in December after 10 months in custody for drug possession charges.
