The Big Bang Theory is one of my favorite television shows. The geekiness, social awkwardness and admitted intellect of the four guy characters (Leonard Hofstadter, Sheldon Cooper, Howard Wolowitz and Raj Koothrappali) is a funny matchup when paired with Penny Cooper, the aspiring waitress and actress that is willingly/unwillingly part of their craziness.
Well, the real life person playing the dingy but common-sense spouting Penny Cooper is getting married. As of September 2013, Actress Kaley Cuoco, 27, is engaged to tennis star, Ryan Sweeting. The pair has only been dated for about three months, a relationship that was started after Kaley’s brief relationship with the latest Superman, Henry Cavill. Even though it’s been a whirlwind romance, Kaley is quoted as saying she “knows he’s the one.” There is no word on the wedding date or details yet. Something else you may not know about Kaley is that she secretly dated her The Big Bang Theory co-star, Johnny Galecki (Leonard). Interesting that their on-screen romance was real as well!
We know you know who the gorgeous Kaley is, but you might not have heard of Sweeting. The 26-year old, Bahamian-born athlete has been a pro tennis player for the last seven years and currently trains in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In 2011, he won his first ATP World Tour singles title, and he's currently ranked at 532 by the ATP, with his career high being 64. It turns out tennis is something that Kaley and Ryan have in common; she was a nationally ranked amateur tennis player when she was a child! Our personalized racquet club sign would make a great wedding gift for the happy couple – or, perhaps, Sweeting would like to give these as groomsmen gifts?! We’re sure they have sporty friends, so a personalized gym duffle would also make great gifts for groomsmen – especial when embroidered with the recipient’s name.
If you are getting married and have a wedding party comprised of The Big Bang Theory like wedding attendants, we have some great choices in groomsmen gifts. For example, your friends similar to the shy Raj who can’t speak around women unless he’s had a drink, would definitely benefit from an engraved flask. GroomStand.com has dozens of flask options from that will help loosen up any inhibitions. For the friend that may still live at home with his mother (like Howard), we suggest our black leather key ring and the hint that he should get a key to his own place to put on it. For computer nerds like Leonard, our Rhodium plated thumb drive comes in handy and Sheldon-types would love to pass the time playing a game or two on our premier chess set. All of these ideas make great groomsmen gifts, best man gifts, gifts for fathers, brothers and guests.
