Sarah Spain love affair, Husband
Saran met her husband, Brad Zibung at a charity bowling event hosted by Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook in 2008. Their love didn’t flourish at all. In fact, they had the first shot at a date in a Cubs game in 2009. Zibung had asked Spain to the game via Facebook message, but he only revealed himself as someone who worked for the satirical sports newspaper, The Heckler. At the time Spain was working for sports website MouthpieceSports.com, and it was a good opportunity to meet someone who worked at The Heckler.

While their first date was not an actual date but that became the reason their relationship flourished. Professionally Zibung is a real estate seller; he continues The Heckler as his side project. The couple dated for five long years before getting married in May of 2016. We can say they pretty know each other and are accustomed to their tight work schedule. In November of 2016, they went for honeymoon coinciding with Zebung’s 40th birthday.

‘‘You (Sarah) are such a home run for this job … You could come in tomorrow and take a (expletive) on the desk, and you’d probably still get this job.’”
We can see she was clear on the run for the job but was not selected. Maybe it is due to the fact she didn’t physically involve with a certain person in the board.
