Couple Who Celebrated Wedding At Citi Field Will Be Divorced In A Year

You know, because the Mets play there? It’s not like they are the team you should want to model your marriage after.

I suppose we will have to take a wait-and-see approach on how the decision to host their wedding reception at Citi Field will work out for newlyweds and Long Island residents Francesco Caputo  and Jacqueline Scotti (Italians from Long Island? Wha?), who did just that on Saturday. Will the negative vibes that seem to envelop the bumbling ball team be a harbinger of things to come, or will the Caputos trump tradition and have a long, happy marriage?

After a formal wedding at the Church of St. Aidan in Long Island, the couple took a white trolley over to Queens for the reception. Via the New York Daily News:

“We wanted something different, and it ended up being something really amazingly different because nobody has done it here before,” Scotti, 32, told the News. “Frank is a huge insane Mets fan … and I am now too.”

The beaming bride blushed.

“I had to be a fan,” she added. “Frank told me, ‘If you want this ring on your finger, you have to be a Mets fan.’ My loyalty is to my fiance. So, whatever team he supports, I support.”

Nothing like withholding a marriage proposal on the basis of whether or not you are a fan of the same baseball squad. Talk about taking Puddy’s “Gotta support the team” mantra up a notch to a level of absurd insanity.

The reception with 270 guests was held in the Acela Club inside Citi Field but after the jump is video of the happy couple gallivanting around the diamond as well as hanging out in the dugout. Talk about romantical. I imagine it is every little girl’s dream to one day get married and hang out in a dugout, with all the chew spit stains on the concrete.

Wow. What a bunch of friggin’ rubes, man. At the same time, you have to give the gal credit for going along with the groom’s dream. Good luck caving in every Francesco’s sports-themed fantasy for the rest of your marriage, Jacqueline. My guess is they consummated the marriage while Caputo was wearing a Mr. Met outfit. Creepy.

    “Italians from Long Island? Wha?”

    Next thing you’re going to tell me is that a lot of Jewish people also are from Long Island.

    As an attendee of the reception at Citifield, I was blown away with the heartfelt love that was in the ‘chilly’ air that day. I’am a German from Long Island, Was? I think your amateur writing was trying to imply something? A Rube according to the dictionary is a “country bumpkin”, so again what are you getting at? Honestly, your blog is a joke- read only by fantasy baseball die-hards. I think your wife wants to go shopping while your down in the basement with bong at hand, trying to conjure up some sort of witty opinions about sports, pro-teams, sportscasters and people within the industry that make a hell of a lot more money than you do. Don’t be jealous-it’s transparent that you want a better career. And finally don’t be angry that your wife is ugly, as you can see Frank and Jackie are a damn good looking couple with a bright future ahead of them, you however need to keep your opinions to yourself and use a little tact. Your a blogger for god sakes!

      @Chris Trent, “I’am” not entirely sure if “your” going to understand this or not, but I’ll give it a shot nonetheless.

        @Weed Against Speed, I’M sorry- I wrote the reply in 3 minutes! Let me clarify one thing- YOU’RE and ass! Adam Sandler movie bites will not help you overcome your lack of life, writing skill or knowledge of sports…let’s put it this way- YOU’RE the Perez Hilton of sports blogging. You just ramble because you don’t have friends.

          @Chris Trent, Wait, I’m “and” ass? I don’t get it.

          Further, the only person who should be concerned with Adam Sandler movie “bites” is perhaps his dentist.

          And here I thought we could be friends. Sigh.

                @Weed Against Speed, what would really make me happy is if you gave some sort of pseudo apology…if you would to know Jackie and Frank, you would love them!

                  @Chris Trent, Fine. I apologize for taking a lighthearted, semi-sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek look at their wedding celebration at a ballpark.

                  Good enough?

    HAHA so I’m guessing you proposed to your fiancé’ when the Mets were in 1st place two years ago and she left you they lost to the Marlins and didn’t make it into the playoffs. Or was it that you just weren’t efficient when it came to rounding the bases? You sound like a sore divorced house wife. You’re just pissed that your girlfriend left you for a real sportswriter, you weren’t invited, and you didn’t think of it yourself. And yes, that’s my real name. See me “Weed against Speed” chump!

    The bride is my neice…the wedding was nothing short of amazing. They wanted to be untraditional and that was exactly what they did on the most special day of their lives. Jackie and Frank are the most wonderful couple and are very much in love, they will enjoy a long and happy life together no matter where they celebrated their wedding reception. What a shame that a person like you would try to put a damper on this. Don’t be a hater, it only makes you look stupid.

      @Patty Snopkowski, Do you know what actually makes a person look stupid? Taking the time to post a comment on a sports blog written by a so-called “hater.”

      Hey Auntie Patty, here’s a suggestion: try to develop a sense of humor or go take a hike. Your choice.

    Mr. Tasteless Blogger! Let me start by saying…… Just like many other people have commented on this beautiful couple who are not only my friends and two people I love dearly. Obviously you have issues dealing with not only relationships but LIFE in general. I can almost see you sitting at your computer looking like someone from another planet!!!! Which means not only do you not have any friends; you find ways to interact bizarrely in other peoples lives! Let me ask you a question, do you not have a passion for anything that matters? This couple not only married for love but planned their AMAZING Wedding with one of there passions. “THE AMAZING METS”& Just in case you didn’t know passions have many meanings. Apparently you don’t have any but being a nasty obnoxious blogger! Have yourself a nice day @$#hole!!!!!

    PS: Leave Aunt Patty alone!!!!!!!!!

    My cousin’s wedding was one of the most fun ones I’ve been to EVER!! The Clubhouse was AWESOME!! The foods were spectacular! And the love and energy in the receptiion was “OUTTA SIGHT”!! The Bride and Groom made a GORGEOUS newlywed couple. My 80 year old mom had a blast, and she’s a Yankee fan! My 2 year old cousin had a blast! So, it REALLY DOESN’T MATTER what SPEEDY WEEDY says or thinks now, does it! (Sounds like maybe Weedy had some bad speed-y that day, guys! LMAO)

    I think ppl need to mind their business. No one knows what’s going on or what went on to lead to this point. A marriage consists of 2 ppl not hundreds and their comments. If any one has ever been married and truly loved each other knows that trust, honesty is very important in a relationship. without it you have nothing, your living a lie. I believe Shaq loves Shaunie she is the mother of his kids and I’m sure he will take care of his kids. But trust and love are two different things and with out one you don’t have the other. So this is a personal matter that needs to be resolved between a husband and wife and only they know what went wrong.
