Why do you think it would be fun to get married on the ice? It'd be fun because I would do anything for my fiance and he's a diehard IceHogs fan. He's been playing hockey since he was six so it's natural to him. Plus it'd be a great suprise.
Why should you win this contest? We should win this contest because first of all, we're poor from being in college and raising our two boys. Second of all, it would be something different and I'm all about trying new things, and mostly because we both love the IceHogs very much and would love for them to join us on our big day. Afterall, they're family too.

What is the most outrageous thing you and your fiancée have done? We were sitting around one day while our boys were at their grandparents' house for the afternoon and couldn't think of anything to do. So we just got in the car and drove for a while.
