At least you were unbeaten. Hope you asked the other blokes what they were doing?

We did discuss the whole show up to the reception but got to be honest i feel like that is pretty disrespectful. Can't be there for the ceremony that means the most to the couple but can make time to go and drink their free piss. Whilst its the dream i cant help but feel that is slightly against the spirit of attending a wedding.

The partner would understand but once again though it will be her having to do the dirty work and talk to friend etc, explain it to every on the day why i pulled out, deal with those at the wedding who think im doing the wrong thing.

Guess im a bit gun shy after missing a separate bucks show last week and copping a few sprays on facebook from people that dont even know me about my priorities etc (**** being an elite sportsmen/celebrity who has to deal with that stuff week in / week out.

Definitely feel like im letting the lads down though. No wonder ive become a bit of a recluse in recent time....much easier.

That's crap mate, getting there is better than a no-show, they wouldn't even know if you were at the ceremony anyway.

Sounds to me like you're over playing your importance in the ceremony part of the day, nobody will notice you're not there and when Mrs Whuffer tells them you're playing a cricket final they'll be keen to hear how you went later that night.

Your most likely right mate. Im happy to pay my cost for the seat if they didn't have a last minute invitee they wanted to attend.

Cheers mate.

If you feel bad flick the groom a message, explain what you're doing, my guess is he won't be all that bothered mate, he's got much bigger things to worry about!

In fact, he might be happy to come and watch! :lol:

They didn't consider you or anyone else who plays cricket when they went and booked the wedding for cricket finals time, only fair you return the favour.
As others have said they wont even know youre not there for the ceremony.

They don't lose a cent from you not being at the ceremony, they are the same cost regardless of how many attend.

Forking out $150 a meal for people to not show is another thing though, and I'm sure they'll have a few of them, your non-attendance to the ceremony will not even get a mention later on, they'll be too concerned on how they look and getting their vows right etc.

I missed a cricket semi-final about 6 years ago, because one of my sisters got married. The game was a tie, but as we were the lower ranked side, we got eliminated.

That same sister has booked a cruise for her 40th, for late March next year. Finals time again.

I went to the former, and copped shit for trying to get updates on the boys.

I'm declining the latter; If I was to go on a cruise, I'd only go with Mrs. Creation first, and it sure as shit wouldn't be during finals time for any sport.

I love the fact we can donate organs these days but it must be hard on the family having people's bodies kept alive extra days to help the process.
