Abby & Sam’s story is one of my absolute favorites. Abby, the Olympic diver and Sam, a talented collegiate athlete himself, both met at Duke. She attends Duke medical school and Sam is the Duke assistant football coach so it stands to reason that these two would meet on campus no? Wrong! Actually, these two met through a kismet accident. At Duke, you are issued a school ID. As luck or fate would have it, Abby seemed to have lost her Duke ID somewhere on campus. Sam, being the observant guy that he is, happened to stumble upon said ID and sent this modern day damsel-in-distress an email. He not only returned her ID but asked her on a date as well!
