Fall brides know the struggle all too well how does one plan a wedding around football season?! If your nuptials coincide with one of the boys' big games, chances are you're going to hear grumbles about it from your guests. Sadly, one 27-year-old groom from St. Louis was able to avoid this situation altogether, but only because his longtime love broke things off before their November 5th wedding.
Sean Bradshaw, obviously bummed about you know not marrying his sweetheart of three years, decided he wasn't going to sit inside all day sulking about his would-be wedding day. Nope, this football fan did the only thing he knew how in a situation as rough as this: he turned to his family. Instead of spending the day alone on the sidelines so to speak, Bradshaw, his dad, and his little brother bought tickets to the Notre Dame versus Navy football game in Jacksonville, Florida.
Still feeling the sting of heartbreak, the ex-groom created a pretty hilar sign he carried around for the game that read, "Today's supposed to be my wedding day, she made me choose: her or Notre Dame," to which he put a check mark in the Fighting Irish box. Hey, nothing gets between a man and his pigskin! "I've always been a fan and I always will be," Bradshaw told Good Morning America. "Leaving the game, I got stopped by a lot of people giving their well wishes."
Unfortunately, his favorite team lost to Navy 28-27, but that didn't defeat his hopes for the future. At the end of the day, this groom reminds us what is really important in life. It's not your team winning the big game, but rather the family and friends you experience the game with. He told GMA how thankful he was for having such a thoughtful family. "I wouldn't expect any different," he said. "That's what family is there for anyways. It means a lot to me."
We have a feeling this family man will do juuust fine in the ladies department.
