Carrie’s Olympic Bet
Carrie Underwood, who is engaged to professional hockey player Mike Fisher of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators, admits that she didn’t know that the U.S. and Canadian Olympic hockey teams were playing each other on Feb. 21. “I honestly didn’t even realize that they were playing until my sister texted me and asked if [Mike and I] had a friendly wager going on,” Carrie tells Country Weekly. “I asked him [about a bet] and he said, ‘how about if the loser gives the winner a back rub?’” So what happened when the U.S. team beat Canada 5-3? “I got a nice little back rub,” Carrie says with a laugh. And if the two teams meet again in the Olympic tournament? “We’ll have to double down, I guess,” Carrie says. “Maybe dinner.”
