In sports circles, Mike Fisher is known as the hockey player who is married to singer Carrie Underwood. For non-sports fans, he is viewed as the guy who holds her purse as she collects awards and makes red carpet appearances. Underwood decided to humorously remind him about that point over Twitter on Saturday. @mikefisher1212 Someone gave me this for you! Congrats on the win! ;) twitter.com/carrieunderwoo… — Carrie Underwood (@carrieunderwood) November 25, 2012 Underwood wasn’t going to take that sort of disrespect without a response. He played along quite well: @mikefisher1212 Oh, I noticed…but that’s what sugar mamas do…they give money to their unemployed trophy men! #iaintsayin‘he’sagolddigger — Carrie Underwood (@carrieunderwood) November 25, 2012 Underwood concluded, “You know I’m just kidding! I love you!!! Now, someone PLEASE END THE LOCKOUT!” Hockey fans definitely agree. So must Fisher, who probably isn’t too proud about being supported solely by his wife at the moment. I wonder if they’re among the people who contributed to this business boom during the lockout. H/T CJ Zero
