For many years a group of friends had a set fall Saturday schedule -- early morning football league we played in, hit the bar sponsor for breakfast and beer and then head over to the game if it was here or watch the game at the bar. Then, one of us decided to get married and his wife lost her mind and scheduled on the same day as a home game. What?!? We had all decided not to go but our "w.a.g.s" started a campaign of nagging us until we finally relented to get into tuxedos after our game and skip watching the Buckeye game.
As you might imagine, it all ended badly -- for them. Already fairly grumpy, we showed up at the reception - some fancy top floor restaurant - only to find out it was a cash bar. What!?! Some of the ... boys ... weren't about to pay $5 for a Bud Light so before you knew it they had brown-bagged it. One of them got caught by the restaurant manager and refused to give up his 40oz and a ruckus ensued. We all either got kicked out or left mad. Not sure what happened to the rest of the reception but I heard tears were involved. The only good news was we caught the 2nd half on TV!
Hopefully that will serve as an object lesson to all the best-intentioned brides and mom-in-laws out there - check the Buckeye schedule first thing!
