Wedding bells and the NFL

Hey, Hoddlers!

Tottenham’s women’s team sure has a lot of blonde players, doesn’t it? That’s Ria Percival, a defender who comes this season from West Ham. She was in France for this year’s World Cup with New Zealand, her fourth time at the tournament.

Ramble of the Day

I’m on my fourth writing assignment of the day, so I plan on keeping things brief; we’ll see if I succeed. Regardless, I wanted to bring to your attention a wedding, which just so happened to be at a sporting venue.

The Buffalo Bills hosted not just the New England Patriots in National Football League action, but also was the venue for a wedding.

The now-newlyweds truly incorporated their theme into the wedding — Jim Kelly is a retired quarterback who spent the entirety of his 11 year career with the Bills. The couple also received Super Bowl tickets as a wedding gift, which I have no doubt they’ll enjoy.

I’m not here to squash anyone’s happy moment, for what it’s worth. They’re hardly the first people to get married at a stadium, and they probably won’t be the last, nor do they have to. It seems like fun to attend a wedding at a stadium, and a different type of fun to be a random spectator to a wedding at a sporting event. It certainly makes for unique entertainment around a match, be it pre-match or at halftime. (I believe this one was at halftime, but I can’t confirm.)

tl;dr: A couple got married at an NFL game, and I upheld my intention of keeping the ramble short today.
