Tomorrow will be a sad day for single men everywhere. That's because Meghan Fuller is getting married. (Yes, that's right -- you blew your chance.)

John Hanna is the lucky guy. (No, not that one.) He's an actuary. Believe it or not, they got to know each other while playing in a kickball league.

The date of the wedding, October 27, was not selected at random. As every card-carrying member of Red Sox Nation knows (as well as the non-card carrying members who roll their eyes at yet another ploy to squeeze money out of the fan base), October 27 is the date the Sawx beat the Cardinals to win the 2004 World Series. Meghan planned a morning wedding to avoid conflict with Game 3 of this year's Series, just in case.

So with the Sox in the Series, Meghan was quite concerned Wednesday when the weather looked threatening for Game 1 in Boston. If they had to postpone the first game, would they move all the games back? I told her that would mean there wouldn't be a game on her wedding day, which would pose one less distraction for all concerned.

"But what would I do after the wedding?" she asked.

No, I'm not making that up.

And, yes, I believe John knows what he's getting himself into.

So raise a glass or a coffee mug or whatever to Meghan and John (and, of course, to the Red Sox), and feel free to post your best wishes in the comment area below. Also, feel free to vote on whether I should follow through on my threat to post a Bill Simmons-style running diary of tomorrow's festivities.
