No fall weddings, unless your fall wedding takes place at halftime of a football game.
A popular theme among college and pro football fans in recent years is the topic of no fall weddings that would take us away from our precious football games. But what if the fall weddings won’t take you away from the game at all?
That’s what happened during the Texas Tech game vs. West Virginia on Saturday afternoon.
A couple was wed at midfield at halftime of the Red Raiders game that proved to be the highlight of the day as Kliff Kingsbury’s team lost to the Mountaineers.
The wedding was sweet with the Red Raiders mascot walking the bride down the aisle, err, sideline.
I have to tip my cap to the newlyweds for having a wedding that they will certainly never forget and their bridal party will never forget. The only downside was Texas Tech couldn’t complete the comeback against their Big 12 adversaries.
But most importantly, besides all the stuff about love committing the rest of your life to one another for richer or poorer in sickness and health is the couple found a loophole to the whole no fall weddings thing.
Now, I hope we see more weddings take place at halftime of college football and other sporting events. Instead of packing all your friends and family in church, just think how fun it would be to invite 100,000 of your closest friends to attend the ceremony?
And the best part is you won’t have to foot the bill for the open bar for all those people either.
In all seriousness, I wish nothing but the best for the newlyweds and I hope they can return to renew their vows 10 years from now or so and have another celebration at midfield.
