Steve Spurrier regrets he cannot attend your wedding


A couple sent Steve Spurrier a save the date for their August 16 wedding. Coach seems to respond in his autograph that he cannot attend, but leaves himself some wiggle room. Props to the HBC for recognizing that he should inform the couple as soon as possible that he won't make it so they can save money or send invitations to the "alternate" guests. Kudos to this woman for both inviting Spurrier to her wedding, as well as scheduling it for two weeks before football season.
