Video: Mike Leach offers reporter some sage wedding advice

After practice yesterday, a reporter nine days out from his big wedding day asked Mike Leach for some advice.

Of course, Leach played along and offered some pointers that men who have been through the wedding planning process will sit in front of their screen and nod their head in agreement with as they watch this clip.

“The best wisdom that I could possibly give on that subject…is nine days…you should have come to me sooner. But my wisdom would be, you have to stay out of the way.”

“I wish you a very happy marriage, and I am sure you’ll have one, but I’m just telling you, when it comes to marriages, the women lose their mind. The fiancee is going to lose her mind. Your mother-in-law is going to lose her mind. Your mom is going lose her mind. Several of your sisters and female relatives are going to lose their mind.”

“They’re going to barrage you with constant questions; What should we wear? Which of course my answer is always ‘I don’t care.'”

“And then it’s ‘What color should the invitations be?’ I don’t care. ‘What should we have for dessert?’ I don’t care.”

Then Leach explains the conundrum that presents itself after all those responses that you don’t care. You’ve simply got to hear it to appreciate it.
