You never know what problems you'll run into when you decided to get married at an iconic baseball stadium. In the case of this couple, they were supposed to wed at Fenway Park last Saturday before Boston's game against Oakland. However, when the Bruins reached the Stanley Cup Finals, the Red Sox moved their 7 p.m. game to 1 p.m. The organization took care of the couple, however, allowing them to marry after the game and atop the Green Monster.

Last week, I told you about Hot Clicks reader Todd Lewandowski, who sent Tony Romo $8 wash cloths as a wedding gift after seeing his registry linked in this column. If you remember, Lewandowski also sent Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez a $13 butter dish for their wedding, but had not received a thank you note. I reached out to the Knicks in hopes of getting 'Melo to send Todd a Tweet or a video greeting. The Knicks were helpful and directed me to Carmelo's personal PR person. When I pitched the idea to her, this was the exact response I got back: "Thank you but not available." I don't blame Anthony because I'm sure the idea never even got to him, but thanks to his PR people, he will now be known for having bad manners. And it continues below.

Rob, of Detroit, says, "Hey, Jimmy, this in response to your link about the wedding registry. I found a link to the registry for Jeff Garcia and Carmella DeCesare a couple of years ago. I bought them a candle that they registered for. I little while later I got a thank you card from Carmella that had "Jeff" scrawled on it as well. I, too, saw Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vaquez's registry and bought them something as well. No card from them."

A few of you have asked me to post this even though it's been in Hot Clicks before. I figured I might as well post it today because there's nowhere for LeBron James to go but up.
