    Bad friend...bad, bad friend.

    People pretty much know by now I'm relatively inaccessible once mid-August hits.

    Go to the wedding. About anything should be better than a KU football game.

    Re: Poll: College football vs weddings

    I had a cousin who made this stupid mistake 28 years ago on ISU-EIU weekend. It was pretty humorous - it was time to stand at the front of the church and all the groomsmen snuck out a side door and were in a guy's car listenening to the radio.

    We won 10-7.

    If put in this situation, I would say: "You can get married several times throughout your life. But we only play EIU once a year.!"

    send them some nice cyclone gear


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Please hand over your man card.

    Unless it is your brother, which at this point you should beat him for not knowing better.

    Re: Poll: College football vs weddings

    A couple hawkeye friends of mine(who also live in ames) are reaffirming their vows this year on the ISU Iowa game day. They got married while he was in the hospital last winter this is for their friends and family.

    I happened to inform them before they selected the date, of the day of the game, yet they picked it away. Atleast I will be able to watch the game before the wedding.

    Cyclone football games > more important than those institutions where 50% of them fail (and no I am actually not talking about the u of i this time)

    Go to the game. Odds are, based on national trends, your friend will have another wedding and you can go to that one instead... assuming the idiot doesn't schedule it in the fall again. If so, I would wait for the third wedding.
