An engaged couple pulled their own version of a Hail Mary pass, mailing out a wedding invitation to NFL quarterback Peyton Manning. And it worked (sort of).

Unfortunately, the Denver Broncos player will not be joining the bride and groom for cake and a game of catch, but he did respond to the couple's request. According to a Reddit post made by the brother of the bride-to-be, Manning "regretfully declined" the chance to attend Anna and James's nuptials.

Ignoring their bridal registry, Manning did give the couple an early wedding present: his autograph and “Best Wishes” for the big day. Watch out, cricket, looks like football may be turning into the true gentleman’s game.
