..for those that don't know here's the story.



About the time the proposal was to happen, she started craving a cigerette. I needed to almost chain her seat. My heart was fluttering. I told her she needed to stay seated as this was the time in the game when the camera men pan the audience looking for the prettiest girls in the statium and put their images on the large screen out in center field.

She said, "But honey I don't want to be on the big screen"

I said, "Well it's only for a brief moment it's no big deal sweetie"

Suddenly our images were there with my proposal flashing in LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS
Yes, LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS.

I said, "Honey LOOK!"

Her jaw dropped, I asked her to stand up. She was a bit in shock, but complied.
I slid down unto one knee. I pulled the small black velvet case from my jean pocket.
For an eternity she just stared at me. The planets semed to have froze during those moments.
And where was the my essentail Coldplay music when I needed it!

Finally the words of Chris Martin came through..
"Look at the stars, look how they shine for you.."

She finally composed herself and said, "Of course I will marry you darling"..

We danced for 30 seconds to Coldplay with the statium cheering us on.
I gave a 'thumbs up' and a "A-O.K." sign as the people clapped and for cheered for us.
We didn't make it thru the entire game we left quickly to go home celebrate.

I also want to thank JesseU2 for helping me post the video link.
