    Just got a wedding invitation from my uncle - he's getting married May 16, and we have Red Sox tickets for the game that day :)

    I feel that he should have sent a 'save the date' card, as most people do, to prevent scheduling conflicts. However, I also feel like I shouldn't skip a wedding for a baseball game. What would you do? :)

    I would go to the Red Sox game. But then again, I love the Sox, and I hate weddings, so that's an easy one. ;)

    I hate baseball and weddings. Were it a football game though I would abandon ship on the wedding in a heartbeat.

    Wedding man :yesway:

    Sell your tickets for the game, you can always see them another time right? It's not every day your uncle gets married! :lol:

    Metal gig maybe, but I'd stick to the wedding. I'm not a big sports man (except downhill racing) and you really should go to show your respect at least

    How much do you like your uncle? Will it be a cool wedding, or a stuffy affair with a full Catholic mass and a reception without an open bar?

    Exactly.

    I didn't go to my cousins wedding because:

    a) He's a knob
    b) He accused me of being a drug-addict at my aunt's funeral even thought it was the first time we had ever met and he had no grounds to :noway:
    c) It was a stuffy affair with a full Catholic mass and a reception without an open bar.

    So yeah, do you like your Uncle more than the Sox? :lol:

    Fuck the Sox and go to the wedding. Although I'm just a bitter Yankees fan. :lol:

    the wrongy's got it righty. what time is the game, and what time is the wedding? i'm sure you could probably do the wedding, then skip the reception for the game.

    Is there free piss at the wedding? This should be the deciding factor.

    Or, go to the game, skip the wedding, and show up for the reception. Make sure to say how beautiful the wedding was, so that they think you were there the whole time. :yesway:

    How about invite the groom to the game, and save him a lifetime of misery!:agreed:

    Yeah, like Noodles said, it depends on how much you like your uncle, and what sort of wedding it is.

    I'm not going to go all girly here, but the wedding everytime. Red Sox tickets would sell a bomb when they're all sold out and I agree You get free food, drink and hugs at weddings! No contest. I agree with Ramsay - Red Sox will come again and can be recorded.
