I thought we went over this already? It’s not ok to propose at sporting events. Like ever. If you do it, you’re subject to public ridicule. It happened again this week at a Diamondbacks game when one poor sap used a baseball ring box. Yes, it’s as terrible as it sounds.
Allow me to reiterate my thoughts on the matter:
They’re lame, they’re obnoxious and they’re for couples who are generally disliked by everyone around them. The couples who often go way overboard with their PDA or tell you how much they’re in love or how awesome their trip to Hawaii was because they went skinny-dipping in the ocean and made love under the moonlight. Nevermind the fact you saw this dude’s wife completely naked at a frat party getting Eiffel Tower’d by two dudes in one of those “can’t unsee” moments.
Here’s a stat for you. 75% of couples who get engaged at games are divorced within five years. I maybe made that up. But did I though? The divorce rate in this country is about 50%. Factor in douchiness, materialism and these chicks’ dorm room sextapes on the verge of being released and BAM–an extra 25%.
