I have no idea what’s real today. Lots of corny April Fools jokes going around… but this looks legit, seeing as though it showed up on the interwebs yesterday on CBS Sports. Somehow we missed it.

Chip Kelly was invited to a wedding by a couple that has almost zero self-respect evidenced by the fact that they sent out football-themed invites. Kelly, always the unconventional, replied via handwritten note:

The thing that jumps out to me here is the word invite. Does Chip… not know how to spell invite? I’m pretty sure he kicked things off with an O. I mean, not that I can really fault the guy. I struggle so much with hand-writing words and do it so infrequently that I routinely have trouble signing restaurant receipts (I’m only about 22% joking– I can’t write anymore). Anyway, this is about the most Chip has said about the Eagles’ offseason plans thus far, and for that Jeff Mclane thanks him.


  1. he was probably going to write “thanks for the offer”

  2. Real Eagles fans know when the draft is. Just sayin’.

  3. Pathetic Les Bowen

    Les Bowen is on Dan Patrick crying about the Eagles and the NJ story. Fuck, Les. Just hang it up pops.

  4. Only voting for underdogs

    How can someone who sent out football themed wedding invites (as awful as that is) schedule said wedding for the weekend of the draft?

  5. Most likely was going to say offer. But the real question is why did he have to change his mind on what word to use. Does it really matter if you say offer or invite?

  6. Chip writes like the Zodiac.

  8. Catch a damned pass

    How many of those “punks” will be arrested before the draft?

  9. This dude needs to get a life.

  10. are you going to put this on a tshirt?
