    That's right, Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne are to tie the knot.

    This borders on creepy, as Kroeger is 37 and Avril is surprisingly 27. What's worse -- and I say this as an avid Nickleback fan -- is they were collaborating on some song writing (never Kroeger's strong suit) for Avril's next album when the sparks flew six months ago. Nothing good can come of this.

    I was guessing Geddy Lee and Celine Dion, so not so bad, really

    37 and 27 is creepy? I hope you never go to a sports hall of fame weekend.

    Maybe I'm stuck the memory of her sk8r boi days. Just seems wrong. Very surprised to see she was 27.

    I mean avid. They can be good background music to a party or night of drinking beers. Don't like all of their music, and I don't take them seriously as artists that are pushing the bounds of creativity and meaning, either. Not everything has to. Good party band. I am well aware I am in the minority as well, nothing you can say about me liking some of Nickleback's music will surprise me, pretty sure I've heard it all.

    Most puzzling statement in SportsJournalists.com history.

    That is pretty fucked.

    And even though the lyrics are inane, I still love "Sk8ter Boi". So maybe I'm fucked too.

    I'll admit to liking Avril as a guilty pleasure and liking Nickelback when "Leader of Men" and "How You Remind Me" came out (I was 16 at the time, though).

    Still, Mark Wahlberg needs to stop this shit.

    I was thinking Anne Murray and Bryan Adams.

    Yeah, if that sets off his creepy detector, I better not tell him about the age difference in my marriage.
