Much of Nashville expressed a collective moan of disappointment the morning of August 3 when it was announced that the city’s NHL Predator’s captain, Mike Fisher, was retiring from playing.
Even wife Carrie Underwood seems a little bit bummed. In a post on her Instagram page, she writes, “I sure am going to miss watching you play and cheering you on with the rest of Smashville …”
But the country star is more supportive and excited for her husband. She also writes, “I so look forward to seeing what God has in store for you in this next chapter of your life. You’ve given your teammates and the game your all for so many years … you’ve worked so hard and made us all so proud! Isaiah and I love you so much and are so excited to be able to have you home a lot more.”
In his announcement, Mike mentioned that he was looking forward to spending more time with his family, but he made no mention of his next career step. The avid hunter and fisherman could possibly be spending more time with brother Bud on their hilarious “Catchin’ Deers” videos and hunting-themed apparel line.
Of course, that’s complete speculation on our part, but we, too, are excited to see what the future holds for this incredibly kind and handsome husband and daddy. Maybe he could become a daddy again? Our fingers are crossed!
Now, just because Mike isn’t playing for the Preds anymore, doesn’t mean that Carrie is no longer a fan. In her post she also says that she’s looking forward to cheering the team on in next season’s race for the Stanley Cup with her husband by her side.
