Blue Jays infielders tie the knot

Why am I not surprised Canada's only major-league team is the one with players marrying one another?
It started in the morning when the players were stretching before their 6-2 victory in the afternoon over the Philadelphia Phillies. An airplane dragging the banner "Aaron will you marry me? I love you, Russ" flew low over the park.

Inside the clubhouse, the two infielders were decked out in tuxedo tops with their uniform numbers on them and there was a mock ceremony in one of the rooms of the clubhouse area. Wedding invitations had a return address with the number 3234, which happens to be the combination of Halladay's uniform number, 32, and Burnett's, 34.

"You can't mess with older guys that have a lot more money than you," Hill said.
Perhaps that last quote is taken out of context. Perhaps.

Presumably a Dutch soccer team could also have players who tie the knot ...
