OT: one week to go

Here's my big announcement: I'm getting married on May 12 at the National Arts Centre. (And before you ask, yes, panic is setting in.)

My wedding vows reflect my status as a die-hard hockey fan:

I, ___________, take you, _____________, to be no other than yourself. Loving what I know of you, trusting what I do not know, with respect for your integrity and faith in your abiding love for me, through all our years, in the playoffs and during the regular season, and in all that life may bring us.

Prior to dinner, the DJ will introduce us by playing the Hockey Night in Canada theme.

I am in a small panic over the fact that the Sens could be playing in the ECF next Saturday. I never miss watching a regular season game, let alone a playoff game. Cancelling the wedding is not an option as it would likely prove fatal. I don't think the NAC has a tv available, more's the pity. Maybe I could rent one.

Anyhoo, my question to you, fellow Sens fans, is what can I do to cheer on our beloved Senators? I'm wearing a rented tuxedo, so I can't exactly put on a Sens jersey underneath. Are there Sens cufflinks? Or maybe a pin? Suggestions would be most welcome.

How about a boutonniere or cufflinks in Sens colors?

Congrats on the wedding. May you have many happy memories together over the years.

Congratulations!

If you aren't picky, there's lots of jewelry with Roman coins on it, which really resemble the Sens logo.

Have the best man listen in on the game on a portable radio and slip you the score as he hands you the ring. Also, establish hand signals so that he can let you know when a team scores.

Voila.

Congrats on getting married. If the wife cares enough, she'll understand if you need the TV to come with

Congrats to getting married.

One of my best friends is getting married on June 10th, which comes dangerously close to being a date that a Stanley Cup Game 7 could be played. We've already warned the bride that if there isn't a TV available, that every guy in the room is going to be leaving the room, trying to find a place to get a score update every 3 minutes.

That could work. Or during the dinner we could establish a code:

"Hey Great Big C, think the DJ could play We're Gonna Win at the dance? I'd like to hear it twice. Oh, and maybe one time he could play Wasted Rock Ranger."

Alternatively, in our room there's a terrace that overlooks the Rideau Canal. I could station a buddy with a satellite radio by the Canal, then earn brownie points by telling the wife she was far more important than some hockey game. "I'm going to step outside for some fresh air, you go dance, sweetie!"

Deception, stealth and intrigue...is there any better way to start a marriage?

I think you should just take a portable tv with you. It'll be on CBC so you won't need cable or satellite.

The game, if there is one, will be in the afternoon at 2 or 3. Maybe you can slip the minister a mickey so that he'll do the ceremony at the intermission.

It all depends on what time of day the wedding is taking place.

I MCed a cousin's wedding a couple of years ago and it fell on a Saturday night where Ottawa was playing Toronto (in the fall, not the playoffs). We brought a tv and hooked it up by the washrooms. I would go back periodically and check the score to announce to the crowd. It was in Kingston, so the crowd loyalties were pretty evenly split. Being on CBC, the game was easy to pick up with bunny ears. Oh, and it was one of the Ottawa blowouts!

If your reception is in one of the upper rooms at the NAC, you should be able to find an outlet easily to plug in a small set.
