Congratulations to the above couple who claim to have skipped their own wedding reception to attend Saturday night’s Pittsburgh Pirates-St. Louis Cardinals game. Their homemade sign was certainly interesting enough to capture the Redbirds’ social media manager’s attention — and for good reason.
It’s not every day a pair of newlyweds opts to leave friends and family at a rented-out facility to answer questions from flummoxed caterers while taking in some sweet regular season baseball action between two sub-.500 teams.
The Pirates prevailed, 7-3, but that’s not the real story here. The real story is that you can skip your own wedding reception. For a late-June baseball game, which surely means literally any other reason as well.
