CC Sabathia’s tribute to his wife Amber on Instagram is perfect.
Former Yankees ace CC Sabathia is very much in love with his rock, Amber, and has been for quite a long time. Never has this ever been clearer than on Tuesday, the day of the couple’s 17th wedding anniversary.
Sabathia took to Instagram to celebrate his bride with a series of photos depicting their relationship, and based on the earlier shots, it’s painfully clear their love has transcended eras.
Mixed in with some very romantic shots, Sabathia started the collection with an amazing photo that practically screams, “THIS IS 2003!!” as well as an amazing picture of the duo rocking matching power blue Tar Heels jerseys.
And yes, to answer all your further questions, there’s also a photo of CC rocking a James Worthy Heels jersey while Amber downs an ice cold Brisk. Who among us doesn’t have a similar photo from the glory days of MySpace?
Amber and CC have long been a couple that any Yankee fan would want in their corner, whether it be for a charitable cause or a primo celebration. The next time New York ends up celebrating a World Series, you can outright guarantee Sabathia and his family will be in tow, considering the entire crew is basically a cornerstone of the city right now.
This is a group that you want in your foxhole, whether you have a protest to attend, or simply a Halloween celebration to stock up for.
We’ve gotten to know the Sabathias quite well over the years — Little C is now a borderline college student (where does the time go?!) — and you’d best believe the Yankee hurler himself knows exactly how much credit Amber deserves for doing so much to keep the group in line.
Happy 17th wedding anniversary to the King and Queen of Yankees Universe! These pictures were a perfect gift for your loyal subjects.
