Travis McIntosh and Matt McCormick have created a stir in the great land of Australia because they decided to get married. No, they are not in love with one another so much as being in love with the game of Rugby. An FM Radio Station is holding a contest and the prize is two tickets to the Rugby World Cup. The contest is restricted to a pair of “Best Mates” and these young men decided to tell the world that love of football, at least that is what foreigners term the game of soccer, is the most important thing in their lives. So, they entered the “Love You Man” contest which already has attracted two hundred such pairs.
A member of the Australian Parliament is not amused. MP Allen Greenwich denounced this travesty of the institution of marriage. “Marriage is really an important institution about love” and it is a sad day when “people make a joke out of it.” Look, man, half marriages end in divorce so when a man and woman say, “I Do” they really don’t mean it. Then again, pick up a newspaper or check the social media today for another story about a guy who belts his wife!
