A Wedding During Football Season

A Wedding During Football Season

By Elton Camp

It has often wisely been said
Football season’s no time to wed

Let’s make one thing quite clear
It’s only four months of the year

So a wedding on the day of a game
Is so incredibly selfish and lame

Your wedding may be significant to you
But football games are important too

Those tickets are incredibly hard to get
So when nobody attends, don’t have a fit

Far down the list your wedding does rate
You need to get your priorities straight

Rather than put your friends on the spot
If you must wed then, use the parking lot

During halftime, the ceremony can be done
A tailgate reception is elegant and fun

    Hi Elton. This is a great and witty poem to bring in the coming football season. And it seems a bit of a warning and a plea for a sympathetic understanding. I enjoyed reading his one and will read more. Well written, my friend..... Robert.
