Jerry Rice Is Living His Best Retirement Life By Crashing Weddings Every Weekend
Jerry Rice abides by Rule #76: No excuses. Play like a champion. Whether it be from his days on the San Francisco 49ers or his current hobby: crashing weddings. That’s right, Rice spends his weekends hitting up weddings across the country, not to mingle with women without dates (Good! Good! More for you and me) or for the beef Wellington appetizers, Atlantic lemon tarragon salmon, or even the open bar. Jerry Rice crashes weddings to actually congratulate the blissful newlyweds.
“I just want to go up to the bride and the groom and congratulate them,” Rice told The Ringer in an interview. “Tell them, ‘Today is your day.’” Maybe he gives the new husband and wife some marital wisdom, such as how true love is the soul’s recognition of its counterpoint in another.
However, he is Jerry “fucking Rice, so there is obviously going to be a spectacle when the three-time Super Bowl champion steps in the building. “For some reason, it always turns out that they are so excited,” Rice said. “They want to take pictures, and I’m just happy to take pictures with them. It always turns out to be bigger than that.” Rice explains how things even get emotional at times. “I’ve had some brides that start crying,” Rice said. “I tell them, ‘You’re not supposed to be crying for me. Your groom is a different story.’”
