Even after almost four years of working with everyone’s favorite bison, everywhere I go with Rumble there’s always some kind of a “first.” Saturday evening was no different.
Rumble was a guest at Thunder fans Sherry and Matt’s wedding at the OKC Farmer’s Market. Certainly Rumble attending a wedding is not unusual, but the way he entered the wedding – that was definitely new.
As a surprise for their guests, Sherry and Matt decided that they would have their favorite furball interrupt their wedding and deliver the rings during the ceremony. And “interrupt” Rumble did. He didn’t shyly sneak into the ceremony; instead, he made an entrance with his usual music and air horns to deliver the surprise.
With all eyes on him, Rumble rushed in and delivered the rings like a smooth dunk, then took his place at the end of the groomsmen line. After the “I do”s, he took pictures with the wedding party and mingled with the guests. He even did a little scouting for any single female bison ladies among the celebrants – alas, to no avail. Our Rumble had to head back to Chesapeake Energy Arena alone … Thus the old phrase, “Once a groomsbison, always a groomsbison.”
