Eagles coach Chip Kelly kindly replies to fans' wedding invite

Chip Kelly is a popular man in Philadelphia, and the Eagles head coach recently took time to respond to a pretty unique request.
Die-hard Eagles fans Thomas Froschle and Maryanne Goslee invited Kelly to their May 10 wedding, and Kelly very politely RSVP'd. Unfortunately, the happy couple is getting married on a pretty important weekend in the professional football world -- NFL draft weekend -- so Kelly can't attend.
Let this be a lesson for other fans or couples thinking about inviting a favorite team member or coach to their wedding: Plan the nuptials early in the summer.
