Playa del Carmen Chronicles
 
Good read!

Watching the Saints beat the Falcons from an outdoor patio bar in Mexico doesn't come without it's fair share of interesting stories.

This past Sunday I watched the Saints put an end to the Atlanta Falcons undefeated season from the Mayan Bistro outdoor patio bar at the Aventura Mexicana boutique hotel in Playa del Carmen. It was my first trip to Playa del Carmen where I had traveled for an old college buddy's destination wedding. When I received my invite in the mail I was not sure if it was in Mexico or Florida. Courtesy of the couple's wedding website listed on the invitation, I determined that it would require making a run for the border right in the middle of football season.

Scheduling a wedding during football season has the potential to cause conflict between friends and family. However, if a couple must exchange wedding vows sometime between September and November, having it take place at a Caribbean resort destination can be worth missing a few hours of football during the course of a full weekend . However, that sacrifice was only minimal. With the ceremony scheduled on the beach at sunset, it left the majority of the afternoon for watching college football.

Now that I'm in the 21st century with DVR I will. I don't like to because I want to watch it real time. But I will.
