Yao Ming's Self-Written Wedding Vows Include How He Loves The Top Of His Wife's Head

SHANGHAI—Houston Rockets and Chinese national team center Yao Ming, 7'6",  married his longtime 6'3" girlfriend, Ye Li, last week in a ceremony for which Yao wrote  nuptial vows praising, among other things, the top of Ye's head. "Ye, my beloved, to glimpse the onyx brilliance of the top of your head sends through me a rush of love strong enough to lift a thousand mountains," Yao intoned nervously yet earnestly as he gazed almost straight down into Ye's eyes. "And your dear sweet shoulders are like two tiny, distant doves nesting beneath that deep abiding well of wisdom and kindness." Yao's poetic efforts were obviously much appreciated by his beaming wife and generally well-received by family and friends, although Yao seemed annoyed when asked by American sports reporters if Ye's feet "looked like they'd been bound when seen from all the way up there."
