So after reports that Yao Ming would get married to his fiancée Ye Li, a player on the Chinese women’s basketball team last year in Shanghai proved to be all but wrong, it appears the Houston Rockets star is finally ready to tie the knot this summer. According to the Rockets’ Manager Daryl Morey, the couple will hold their wedding in August after Yao Ming is done with serial practices in July.
We found this gem in a report on CRIEnglish:
The manager said he believed Yao will look after himself well and do all of the necessary exercises during the summer vacation to tune up his physical fitness.
Did someone actually ask the manager if he thought Yao would be fit enough for the next season? And what exercises did they think Yao would be doing? We reckon the only exercises one should be doing while getting married would be some of the slick moves taught here, just in case Mr. Yao needs any inspiration.
And while Yao has only confirmed that he would get married in August this year, no date has been confirmed yet, leading a Chinese report to wonder aloud if he would actually choose Aug 8th, a most auspicious date for the Chinese, not just because it’s the Chinese Father’s Day (爸爸节), but because the Beijing Olympics open exactly a year from then.
