I’m getting married (!) and taking time off through Aug. 12

gettingmarried.jpgI’ve alluded to my wedding a few times recently and the big day is dangerously close.

I will be getting married to my college sweetheart, Jaymie, on Saturday and, soon after, we’ll be going on our honeymoon to Hawaii. (Here’s a picture of us from last year’s trip to Italy)

As a result, I will be off today through Aug. 12, which means I’ll miss the next four games. Fear not, we will have people covering the action in my absence, starting with tonight’s CONCACAF Champions League game against Caledonia AIA of Trinidad. In the coming days, expect to see coverage from our own Steve Kelley, Jerry Brewer and Jayda Evans.

Since one of the games missed is a big one — next week’s U.S. Open Cup final — I feel a little obligated to explain the poor timing. When our wedding date was picked last year, we were under the impression the Open Cup final would be in early October like the previous two years (September, at the earliest). U.S. Soccer announced format changes in January. Then, of course, the Sounders pulled off another great run to the final, which “ruined” our hopes of missing a “big” game.

Anyways, the preliminary plan is for Brewer to cover the game for us in Kansas City, Kan., and be sure to check out his latest column on the Sounders.

Thanks for all your well wishes already and I’ll back soon!
