Planning Your Wedding Around Football

Jason Kirk, SB Nation's college football editor, took on the task of picking the best possible weekend to have a fall wedding. Keeping in mind, of course, the college football schedule.

In the story, Jason quotes some Chiefs blogger, who planned his wedding around the bye week.

Take SBNation.com's NFL editor Joel Thorman for example. He's also the founder and editor of Arrowhead Pride, the undisputed best Kansas City Chiefs site. So he needed to arrange his fall wedding to mitigate football losses, even if the only football taken into account was mere pro football.

"The NFL controls bye weeks, but teams can request weeks off," the crafty villain says. "The Chiefs usually request the weekend of the NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway. I planned my wedding that weekend and got lucky when the schedule came out."

I sorta lied in this quote. The idea on scheduling my wedding that weekend originally came after discussions with AP user kcsno56, who noted the NASCAR scheduling. My wedding comes on Oct. 20 with the Chiefs bye week coming the following Sunday. And the week after that, while you suckers are sitting in your office, I'll be honeymooning in Hawaii with Ms. (soon to be Mrs.) Primetime.

Check out the full story here. Pretty good stuff.
