Hey @CoachBeardTTU , how many retweets for you to officiate my wedding?— rylee albracht (@ryleealbracht) August 1, 2019
Back in August, Texas Tech student Rylee Albracht shot his shot, asking Tech’s Head Basketball Coach Chris Beard to officiate his wedding.
Honestly, what better way to convince your new fiancé that she’s making the right decision marrying you than getting Coach Beard to officiate your wedding? Power move city, population the Groom.
But it turns out Coach Beard wanted something more than retweets:
Our first game of the season is Tues November 5. If the student section is 100% filled with 4500 students, I will be at your wedding and will provide Whataburger for everyone there.#4:1 https://t.co/Z6hx1xGLRp— Chris Beard (@CoachBeardTTU) August 3, 2019
Solid negotiation here by Coach Beard. Because no way 4,500 Tech students on a Tuesday night will turn out for a Tech v. Eastern Illinois game. Or will they?
It’s 15 minutes until tip. On a Tuesday. Against a nonconference, non Power 5 school. Things have changed, y’all. #WreckEm pic.twitter.com/xXHHOIiXqh— Texas Tech Alumni Association (@TTUAlumniAssoc) November 6, 2019
Boom! Honey butter chicken biscuit’s all around!
We’re ready, Coach— Whataburger® (@Whataburger) November 6, 2019
Tonight, love wins and Tech wins (85-60). A hell of a Tuesday! Congrats to the Albrachts!
Oh and to all the single ladies out there still lookin for love, I got just the guy for you:
Also, Coach Beard is still in the market for a plus one if someone is still trying to get the last minute invite to @ryleealbracht wedding. pic.twitter.com/cIyocCFe7d— Eric Kelly (@EricKellyTV) November 6, 2019
