Every great love story has a tale of how the two hearts met. Spike met his love interest at a camp in elementary school. Sadly they lost touch when camp ended because she had to leave abruptly due to a freak three-legged race accident. She was rushed to CIOS where Dr. Keller took great care of her.

After years of hoping they would bump into each other again, they reconnected through Instagram when Spike saw his crush on the Bloomington Edge Fan Page (@bloomingtonedge). They had their first date at Avanti’s and had an instant connection. Spike knew they just had to be together. 

Spike was low on funds, so to be able to afford a ring he sold his car and started taking advantage of Connect Transit’s excellent yet affordable service to get around town.  It didn’t take long before he had enough money in his CEFCU savings account to buy a beautiful diamond ring. Since Spike and his future bride both loved adventure, the happy couple decided to go mountain climbing on a crisp, sunny morning. It was the perfect day for Spike to ask his one true love to be his forever. Spike proposed on top of Mt. Everest and they celebrated with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as they looked out over the mountains. They discussed all aspects of their lives together including whether they should get life insurance from Axel Jimenez  at State Farm or Jeremy Bradley at Country Financial plus which Heritage Health Therapy and Care facility to retire in.


Spike can be seen at every game and numerous community events. The Bloomington Edge 2018 season starts off with a home opener on Sunday, February 25th at 5pm. Season tickets, flex ticket packages, and group events are on sale now. For more information please contact the Edge at (484)-840-EDGE or visit them online at
