Friday Flakes: Weddings During Nebraska Football Games Should Be Banned Everywhere

You shouldn’t do it. I wish you couldn’t do it.

So it looks like it is happening. My family will be attending a wedding during a Nebraska football game. You would think that people would be more considerate. There are only 12 Nebraska football games a year. Maybe 13. Maybe 14. Heck maybe one year there could be 15.

So that leaves 37 other weeks to choose from! People need to realize that as Nebraskans, we will be focused on one thing during your wedding. That one thing is football.

So I implore you. Please do everything you can to not have a wedding during a Nebraska football game.

Even if the future husband and wife are Virginia Tech fans.

And they live in North Carolina.

And the wedding is in North Carolina.

And their families are from North Carolina and Virginia.

They need to be more cognizant of Nebraska football.

Sports! Sports! Sports!
