Packers fan stumbles upon Mike McCarthy when he’s about to pop the question, has McCarthy take engagement photo
A man from Milwaukee named named Tim Schlosser recently planned a very romantic and memorable proposal for his now-fiancee Abigail Kobriger. However, Schlosser’s plan was not executed exactly the way he had envisioned it. Thank goodness for that, because he could have never imagined it going as well as it did.
The couple was strolling down the beach while on their Caribbean vacation when Tim was just about ready to make his move. The only thing he needed was a person that he could ask to take a picture of the couple, as he planned to get down on one knee and ask Abigail to marry him as soon as he could find a kind stranger to play the role of photographer. The next thing he knew, Schlosser spotted Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy from about 100 yards away.
“I know that guy!” Schlosser told TMJ 4 he was thinking when he spotted McCarthy. “I could just tell from the build, from about a 100 yards away and it’s Mike McCarthy.”
Schlosser says he and his girlfriend were both star struck and asked McCarthy to take a couple photos with them. He then asked the coach if he would mind taking a picture of the couple, which Kobriger found to be very bold considering he’s an NFL coach and a celebrity in their home state. That’s when Schlosser made his move.
“Coach hang on, I’ve got one thing to do,” Schlosser recalled asking McCarthy. “I pull out the ring and get down on one knee.”
Schlosser said McCarthy thought the moment was “very cool” and he ended up snapping 30 more photos of the couple to help them capture their special moment. We’ve seen NFL quarterbacks and punters help guys propose to their girlfriends before, but a coincidence like the one Schlosser and Kobriger came across seems too good to be true. Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
