Yao Ming Gets Married

BEIJING (AP) _ Yao (yow) Ming got hitched Monday in his hometown
of Shanghai. The Houston Rockets 7-foot-6 center married his
long-time girlfriend, a 6-foot-2 player on the Chinese women's
basketball team.
The ceremony and banquet were attended by about 70 friends and
relatives. Around 100 reporters staked out the riverside hotel's
lobby, but Yao sent a message that he would give no interviews.
The Titan sports newspaper reports Yao and his bride will go to
Beijing Tuesday to take part in festivities celebrating the
one-year countdown to the opening of the 2008 Olympics.
