Steve Weatherford helps Giants fan propose to his girlfriend
Thanks in part to punter Steve Weatherford, a couple of New York Giants fans have a wedding to plan. After the G-Men concluded their practice on Sunday, Weatherford walked off the field and handed a man named Bryan Wheeler what appeared to be a souvenir. As you can see above, the souvenir had an important message on it and Wheeler handed it off to his girlfriend, Jacklene Murt.
“I thought it went great, she said yes,” Weatherford explained on Monday according to the Giants website. “I don’t know if I’ll get invited to the wedding or not. It was fun. It was very flattering to be requested to do that. It was a lot of fun.
“I think he contacted our community relations people and requested that the craziest guy on the team help him out. I don’t think he had to look too far down the roster…Obviously whenever you get to do something like that, it’s flattering because it makes you realize how important you are to a lot of people. The guy hopefully, cross your fingers, is only going to get married once, and I was the one to help him get engaged.”
We here at LBS are glad the lovely lady said yes. As we’ve shown you in the past, there’s nothing worse than a rejected proposal in public.
