First Dance: "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You"
Chicken Football:  Yes
Maid Of Honor insists on drunkenly fronting the band with "Loveshack": Yes

Tonight was the first wedding of the 2006 season - a great party on Cinco de Mayo, with everybody dancing and drinking and being generally extremely happy.  Even better, we're one for one with bad toasts. To wit:  "Everybody knows that I'm a much better athlete than my older brother.  I can hit a golf ball farther, sink a jump shot over him on his best day, and run a marathon while he ties his shoes.  He's a better baseball player though: {points at bride} look at the catch he made!"  (Actually, the marathon bit is mine.  I'm only here to help.)  Had he not buried it with mumbled childhood anecdotes it might have played cute.  Unfortunately, most of the crowd choked on its own spittle.

"Sweet Caroline" killed.  KILLED.  I could sing off-key, pick my nose and kick puppies dead; still, those "doo doo doos" would shake the rafters.  C did his usual "Shout" right after and some drunk in the crowd thought it would be funny to spin him around like a top when he got on the floor to do the "gator."  It was.  He might have been annoyed at me for helping, but it made for an even better night for the band.
