Patriots OL David Andrews compares Super Bowl to wedding day
Many players through the years have tried to describe the experience of playing in the Super Bowl, but few have done it quite as eloquently as New England Patriots center David Andrews.
Andrews, who is set to play in his third Super Bowl with the Patriots in only four NFL seasons, told reporters on Wednesday that anything aside from winning feels meaningless. He compared it to a couple’s wedding day because “everyone freaks out about all these little details,” but the only thing you remember is “the results of the wedding.”

That’s one way of viewing it.
The two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl can feel like an eternity, and no team in the NFL understands that more than the Patriots. While everything else seems meaningless once the ball is kicked off, arranging for tickets for friends and family and dealing with the media can be a lot for players to handle. In that sense, Mike Leach would probably completely agree with Andrews that it is kind of like your wedding day.
