Kyle Martino ’99 Marries Eva Amurri
Kyle Martino ’99 — the 1998 Gatorade National High School Player of the Year, former MLS and national team star who is now lead color commentator for Fox Soccer’s MLS and US men’s team broadcasts — was married last weekend in Charleston, South Carolina to Eva Amurri, daughter of Susan Sarandon.
The wedding — filled with both Hollywood and soccer stars — was covered by the national media.
People Magazine wrote:
The nuptials were hosted by Amurri’s mom Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins – who helped raise the bride during his 21-year-long relationship with her mother – and capped off a weekend of festivities including a scavenger hunt, cocktail party and casual oyster roast and barbeque rehearsal dinner.
The ceremony, officiated by Sister Helen Prejean – about whom the movie Dead Man Walking, starring Sarandon, was made – was to be followed by a black-tie celebration of dinner and dancing and guests toasted with Perrier Jouet champagne.
Staples goalkeeper coach Tom Henske — who, like Kyle, attended the University of Virginia, and who was Kyle’s boss at Lenox Advisors — attended the wedding. Photos were not allowed at the ceremony — but he sent along this shot from the rehearsal dinner the night before. Tom had just told Kyle about the Wreckers’ 1-0 FCIAC tournament victory over Greenwich.
Tom is holding a piece of paper that reads “1-0.”
