Seriously, that's not even meant to be a humorous question. There have been four instances this year where I've had to take days off from the blog for wedding-related activities, and every single time something out of the ordinary happened.
My one buddy's bachelor party on April 21st was the amazing 15-9 comeback win against the Fraud Sawx, and his wedding on June 2nd was the 4-3 loss to the Tigers when Joe and Kevin Long got run by Bob Davidson. My other buddy's bachelor party on September 22nd was the crazy 14-inning win against Oakland that started the almost month-long Raul Ibanez Clutch Hit Party, and his wedding last night was Game 1 of the ALCS, where the Yanks showed nothing on offense again only to make a dramatic 4-run comeback in the 9th to tie the game only to lose in extras. Oh, and Derek Jeter, the most consistent player in the lineup right now, broke his ankle and is out for the rest of the year.
Maybe I should just start being a huge dick to everybody so I don't get invited to any more weddings. I always end up missing out on great games and great blogging material. Game 2 preview coming up shortly...
