Chip Kelly Denies Fan’s Wedding Invitation Because it’s the Same Day as the NFL Draft
The Philadelphia Eagles have undergone many changes this offseason. First of all, they let go of Michael Vick, as expected. Second, they let go of DeSean Jackson, as kind of expected. And third, they are going into a season with a quarterback not named Vick for the first time since 2008. Oh yeah, and Chip Kelly is denying fan’s wedding invites because of a minor event on his team’s schedule.
You hear about it every day. Crazed fans asking famous athletes or celebrities to attend their wedding for shock value. I mean, how cool would it be to have someone like Kelly show up at your wedding? Especially if you’re an Eagles fan, that would be a dream come true.
However, one fan must not follow the team very closely as he invited the head coach to his wedding on the same weekend as a little thing called the NFL draft.
While Kelly could have just ignored the invite, he RSVP’d like a regular invited guest with a handwritten note.

What a terrible excuse, am I right?
It’s pretty cool that the coach decided to handwrite a reply to the fan who invited him to his wedding. How many people can say they got a handwritten reply from one of the best up-and-coming NFL coaches out there?
Sorry, guys, I have an NFL draft that weekend. Maybe next time.
