32: Aaron Allen's Best Man Speech First of all I would like to thank the Miller and Peters families for everything they have done this weekend. On How I Met Your Mother, they said that in every relationship there is a reacher and a settler. I don’t think there has been a better example of that than this relationship. I was going to give you all a second to make your own assumptions, but since you already have, Doug, congratulations for marrying out of your league. Congratulations are also in order because with Amy moving in there will finally be someone at your house that knows how to use a hammer, which is always a key part of owning a home. For those of you that don’t know me, I’ve known Doug since little league. We played baseball together our whole lives, lived together freshman year at the U of I, then lived in the same fraternity our sophomore and junior years. Once we finally decided to broaden our horizons our senior year, we lived on opposite corners of the same block. We’ve traveled the country to watch the Illini lose football and basketball games, so needless to say, I’ve got a few stories about him. | I could tell you about how I had to visit the principal’s office twice my senior year, both of which involved Doug and one of which ended both of our storied baseball careers. There was also the time he gave a toothless, homeless man my fresh beer in New Orleans, then tried to give it back to me when I got back from the restroom. I could also tell you about a table full of drinks being tipped over in Hollywood because and I quote “people got angry.” He’s been punched in a cab by a stranger in St. Louis and nicknamed the Hurricane, but unless I want to set the record for longest best man speech ever, of which I was also a part of, I’m not going to tell you any of those stories. Today, only one of my stories about Doug really matters. On October 2, 2008, Doug and Amy met for the first time. The next day, a group of us guys left for Ann Arbor, MI for an Illini football game against Michigan. During the entire trip, including during the game, there wasn’t more than 5 minutes that Doug wasn’t either texting or talking to Amy. It got so bad that we threatened to flip over the cot he was laying in at the hotel if he didn’t get off the phone. He spent the rest of that conversation curled in a ball between the flipped over cot and the door of the room. We of course gave him a hard time about spending all of his time talking to this girl that he just met, and he responded by saying, “when you know, you know.” It could probably be debated whether he was serious or not, but regardless, here we are today. So let’s raise our glasses to the bride and groom. Congratulations.
