John Harbaugh stumbles upon marriage proposal (Video)

John-Harbaugh-proposalDavid Rudich and his girlfriend Amy Segall are huge Baltimore Ravens fans. Because of that, Rudich decided the Ravens’ practice facility — also known as The Castle — would be a great place to ask Segall to be his wife. He had no idea how perfect of a place it would turn out to be.

After she was so taken aback that she spit out a bad four-letter word, Segall accepted the proposal. She then looked up like she had seen a ghost, which probably made Rudich a bit nervous. Not to worry, Dave — your proposal had just become one of the greatest proposals of all-time courtesy of Ravens coach John Harbaugh.

By pure coincidence, Harbaugh happened to be walking out of the building as the proposal was being recorded on camera. He asked the couple if they had just gotten engaged and came over to congratulate them. Harbaugh was a class act about the whole thing and even threw in a group hug.

If the type of luck Rudich and Segall had during their proposal is any indication of what their marriage will be like, I think these kids are going to make it.

UCLA LB Stan McKay proposes to girlfriend after win over Washington (Video)

Stan-McKay-proposalUCLA came away with another big win on Friday night, defeating a very good Washington team by a score of 41-31 in Pasadena. The win itself worth celebrating, but linebacker Stan McKay stole the show after the game by proposing to his girlfriend on the field.

McKay’s Bruins teammates and coaches — Jim Mora included — gathered around the senior to watch him get down on one knee and pop the question. Unfortunately, we could not hear what he said to his lady friend. The important thing is we clearly heard her say “yes” in response, which sent the team into a frenzy.

We have seen players propose to their girlfriends after games in the past and it never seems to get old. Plus, UCLA needed this. Remember that guy who got rejected on the jumbotron at a UCLA basketball game? Yeah, the one who later created a documentary about how he was rejected and dumped because of the size of his, well, you know. At least McKay didn’t end up like him.

Man rejected on UCLA jumbotron marriage proposal dumped for penis size, created film ‘Unhung Hero’

UCLA proposalRemember the video that went viral last year of a man proposing to his girlfriend on the jumbotron at a UCLA basketball game and getting rejected? Many had questions about the authenticity of the video and wondered if it was all staged.

While we still don’t know the answer to that question, what we can tell you is that the video did lead to the development of a documentary.

Comedian Patrick Moote found out the reason for the rejection was his penis size and goes on a “fact-finding journey as he consults porn stars, doctors and anthropologists to learn whether the size of one’s manhood matters” for the documentary, according to a synopsis on IMDB.

The documentary began playing on Showtime recently and is available for viewing on demand. Our buddy Sam who told us about the story says the documentary was only OK. Maybe you’ll enjoy it more. Below is the trailer:

Notre Dame F Jack Cooley proposes to girlfriend during senior banquet

Jack-Cooley-proposalNotre Dame forward Jack Cooley took what was sure to be a memorable night on Wednesday and brought it to another level. During his team’s senior banquet, Cooley concluded his speech by calling his girlfriend Jackie Oberlander to the stage. His teammates, who knew what was coming, had their cell phone cameras rolling.

We all know what he did next. Cooley dropped down on one knee and proposed to Oberlander. She said yes. Junior guard Eric Atkins posted a quick clip of the proposal on Twitter.

Cooley, who was one of four seniors saying goodbye to the Irish, said Oberlander had previously told him that she wanted the engagement to be public and recorded.

“She told me that she wanted it public and recorded,” Cooley told The South Bend Tribune on Wednesday night. “She wanted me to do it around Senior Night (the March 5 game against St. John’s) but I had to focus on the game. I was running out of opportunities to do it in front of crowds like this so I just thought I would do it now.”

He also admitted that he didn’t purchase the engagement ring until last Thursday, but it appears everything went off pretty smoothly. It wasn’t quite as memorable as the most recent proposal we shared with you here on LBS, but anything beats ending up like this guy.

Packers fan stumbles upon Mike McCarthy when he’s about to pop the question, has McCarthy take engagement photo

Packers-fan-proposalA 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.

Fan proposes to girlfriend using half-court shot attempt at Magic game (Video)

Orlando Magic fan proposalA fan proposed to his girlfriend at Monday’s Orlando Magic-Miami Heat game by using a half-court shot attempt to set her up for the surprise.

The young woman, Elena, prepared to take a half-court shot with $1,000 on the line. As she was setting up to attempt her shot — which went about halfway to the basket — her boyfriend was behind her getting ready to propose. The in-game host told Elena to turn around after her miss, and that’s when she saw her boyfriend down on one knee with a ring in a box extended.

Elena began crying in disbelief, said yes, and the two hugged and kissed.

This is just one of many sports-related marriage proposals we’ve shared here on the site, and they never get old. Check them all out here.

Cam Newton helps Air Force serviceman propose to girlfriend over phone

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was kind enough to join Kiss 95.1 in Charlotte on Wednesday morning to help one of our country’s servicemen take the next step in his life.

A caller named Brian, who serves in the US Air Force and is currently stationed in New Mexico, proposed to his girlfriend over the phone. Typically the over-the-phone proposal is frowned upon, but when you’re serving in the military and get an NFL quarterback to help you pop the question it’s completely acceptable. Newton joined Brian on the line while hosts Drex and Maney got his girlfriend Kim on the phone.

Kim was told that Newton was on the line, which seemed to completely overwhelm her as she’s obviously a huge fan. The Panthers quarterback then informed her that Brian has something he would like to ask her, and the conversation went something like this.

“From the moment I met you, I knew that I loved you, and I knew that I wanted to love you for the rest of my life,” Brian told Kim. “I know when you say something over and over again, it can lose meaning, but every time I say I love you, I mean it, and I want you to be my wife. I want you to marry me.”

Kim eventually said “yes,” but her immediate response after Brian’s proposal was priceless.

“I can’t believe Cam Newton is on the phone,” she said.

Talk about having a lot to take in at once. I recommend listening to the entire audio clip, which can be heard here. This is not the first time an NFL player has helped a fan propose to his girlfriend, but it just may be the most entertaining reaction we have seen.
