An Olympic marriage proposal

Today’s Olympics highlight comes from the rugby competition, which was won by Isadora Cerullo after volunteer Marjorie Enya proposed to her.

    Sort of reminds me of when a football player asked a cheerleader to marry him a few years ago during a bowl game, good for them.

    • …and one of the greatest finishes to a bowl game ever (the plays)…the 2007 Fiesta Bowl…

      Bonus: There were death threats after that proposal due to them being an inter-racial couple…

        Ian Johnson was with Vikings for 2-3 years, think he was just practice squad.

    In case anyone was wondering, same sex marriage has been legally recognized by Brazil since May 2013.

    Don’t read the comments, they are generally disgusting.

    • Al

      Never read the comments.

      As much as I am convinced that internet comments will be (already are?) the downfall of humanity, comments like yours are like catnip to me—I’m always up for mango hunting. Much to my chagrin.

    Sorry, but I hate these public proposals. Glad to see that two women can be that open about it though, if that’s what they want.

    • Kassie

      Agreed. I would be beyond mad if this happened to me. And I thing that sometime they are used to manipulate someone into saying “yes.”

      • Al

        Husband and I mutually agreed that the Metrodome jumbotron was off-limits for our proposals. 😀

      • Jack Ungerleider

        I wonder sometimes if these are “reenactments”. If you have two people who have decided in a non-flamboyant way to get married but they haven’t told anyone about it yet. They go to some event with friends and family and stage the proposal so that everyone else thinks the proposed to party is surprised when its all an act for the people watching.

          “Never ask a question you don’t already know the answer to” doesn’t just apply to the court room.

          That said, every know or then I hear of one of these proposals getting shot down.
