    how do you break up a wedding?

    so, I agreed to be in an old high school friends' wedding (groomsmen) almost a year ago when he got engaged. unfortunately I didn't cross reference the date at the time I agreed to it with the football schedule. this wedding is out of state and I would need to be there for the rehearsal dinner. just so happens the dinner is the night of the UNI game and the wedding is the following night. this poses a major issue when I would rather go to the football game but feel obligated to attend an old friends wedding that I committed to. this leaves me with only one option...

    I need to break up the wedding.

    the only question now is how???

    hookup with the bride. Problem solved


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Why is this in football?

    Never mind I didn't read it. I jumped to conclusions.

    Sunday wedding? Weird. I have a wedding I am in on gameday. Good thing the wedding is at 330, so we will get to at least gamecast it on my phone.

    No offense, but he must not be too close of a friend if you aren't willing to miss the UNI-Iowa State game for his wedding.

    There are bigger things in life than football.

    Just go do your job, get drunk, and have fun with one of her single friends/relatives.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Well, he could still go to the game and be there for the wedding.

    He would just miss the rehearsal dinner.

    Either way, it's the UNI game. If we were nationally ranked and playing another top team, I could see missing it for a dinner, but not this game.

    we used to be really good friends. but I live in iowa now and he lives in Illinois so we obviously dont hang much together anymore, and havent for 5+ years.

    and it's the first game with "Storm tracker/cyMAX". who wants to miss that?

    Marriages today aren't what they used to be, just tell him you will go to his next wedding, and offer to preemptively end the suffering now by taking the bride out for a wild night, LOL.
