Peyton Manning personally responds to wedding invitation

1Nf1quS-768x1024

It’s a bad idea while otherwise at work to ask a franchise quarterback to pose for a picture.  It’s a good idea to invite a franchise quarterback to your wedding.

Via multiple reports, the bride’s sister posted a photo of the response online, in which Manning declines but provides a legible autograph.

According to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com, the card arrived Monday — five weeks after the RSVP date and three weeks after the wedding.

“I’m so excited he took the time to do what he did,” the bride, Anna Bozard, told Rovell.  “I’m going to put it in a nice frame.”

So get ready, franchise quarterbacks and other star athletes.  You’re going to get invited to a bunch of weddings.

We look forward to the first time someone checks “yes” and actually shows up with a toaster.

    Brady. Your mine come wedding day. Absent you and your wife’s presence, there is nothing short of an autographed jersey or years supply of uggs that will suffice

    When is Aaron Rodgers getting married to Ryan Braun?

    Soon right?

    With the salaries these starting QB’s make (except Russell Wilson) they’d better be showing up with something more than a freakin toaster!!!

    You can send a wedding invitation to the White House and the Obamas will send you back a decline. If you send one to Disney World, Mickey and Minnie will decline your invitation. My wife and I did both and we kept the letters. It was pretty cool.

    Toasters are so 90’s.

    Just bring cash.

    rofl that he put the “r” after the printed “M”

    and lol that he put “Best Wishes” in quotes. WHO IS HE QUOTING?! I MUST KNOW WHO SAID IT!

    Seriously though, classy move, Peyton. Classy.

    What a great business idea they pioneered to start off their new journey together. Just take orders for everybody else and they will send them out for you since they know how to get stuff through, and they know which players don’t want to show up as “Not in Stock” on their website.

    In Nov of 1992 we invited the Buffalo Bills to our wedding. Seriously. In the midst of their Super Bowl runs, rabid fans we were. It seemed like the thing to do. Heck, maybe they send a practice squad player or two? What we did get was a signed thank you and respectful decline, on Bills letterhead, from Marv Levy. Hey, that was more than I ever expected. Very cool.
    Oh, we spent the first four days of our honeymoon in Pasadena and watched the 3rd of 4 SB losses. Oh well.

    Sweet!

    Dear Dan Snyder,
    Can you come to my kid’s Bar-mitzvah?

    They’ll only all start getting invited to tons of weddings if some large media outfit irresponsibly takes this story and runs with it….

    Wait a minute…

    As a Bears fan it would be easy to say this guy is a jerk. You know, that Superbowl thing… But, he sounds like a pretty nice guy. Its not often you hear all the good things that happen like this.

  12. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 3, 2013 9:56 PM

    Class act across the board. Most players wouldn’t give it a second look.

  13. #nastyswaggedout says: Dec 3, 2013 9:58 PM

    Chris Cooley would’ve showed up with a toaster.

  14. kd75 says: Dec 3, 2013 10:01 PM

    Toaster? Peyton sent them a Buick.

  15. mortyglickstein says: Dec 3, 2013 10:07 PM

    How about funerals for some coaches? We should crash them and meet women. Chazz really was an innovator!

    So no Papa John free pizza coupon to go with the signature?

  17. 2ruefan says: Dec 3, 2013 10:36 PM

    “You can send a wedding invitation to the White House and the Obamas will send you back a decline. “..
    Yeah, and I’m SURE that it was the Obama’s PERSONALLY who signed and responded to your invitation. LOL…
    If you believe THAT one.. I’ve got a “You can keep your Doctor.. Period” to sell you..

    Peyton would have accepted had the wedding been 2nd week of January. He’ll have plenty of free time.

  19. wishingtonredslur says: Dec 3, 2013 10:43 PM

    Brandon Weedon would go.

  20. johninthewest says: Dec 3, 2013 10:55 PM

    What if the bride and groom get a divorce?? Who gets to keep the invitation??

  21. frostymugobeer says: Dec 3, 2013 11:04 PM

    they should have invited Tebow…..I hear he has some spare time

  22. swagger52 says: Dec 4, 2013 12:00 AM

    This may sound stupid..

    But I actually wish that Flacco would show up at my wedding. He is laid back and honest…I have come to appreciate that quality. Plus…we can just serve Mighty Wings.

  23. bizieman says: Dec 4, 2013 8:57 AM

    They should invite The Chiefs defense too. That will be the closes they got to Manning this year.

  24. surfinbird1 says: Dec 4, 2013 1:54 PM

    The only reason he responded is that they agreed to have it catered by Papa Johns.

    Ever feel like you’ve just seen something that’s destined to appear on Pawn Stars in ten years?
