A Kentucky couple named Jeff and Bethany love Wildcats basketball — so much so that on their wedding day, Jeff wore a white DeMarcus Cousins jersey (his groomsmen wore blue away jerseys) and Bethany wore a “big blue halter top.”
How did pictures of these nuptials surface, you may ask?
Jeff was previously featured on Kentucky Sports Radio’s website posing for a photo with Wildcats signee Julius Randle while wearing a UK jersey, leading to criticism from both people in the KSR comments section as well as KSR’s Matt Jones (the latter of whom proclaimed that “men shouldn’t wear basketball jerseys out in public”).
Neither Jeff nor Bethany took kindly to the criticism, so they called into Jones’ radio show last Thursday to air their grievances. At the end of the call, Jeff defended his super-fandom, saying he loved Wildcats basketball so much that he got married in a UK jersey — the photos of which KSR posted on Wednesday.
We respect Jeff’s fandom, but … IT’S YOUR WEDDING DAY!!! Can’t you invest in a suit or a tuxedo? Andy Dwyer from “Parks and Recreation” getting married in a Reggie Wayne jersey is not a nuptial habit that should be copied.
